I have recently started exercising again, a pretty severe back injury I received during a football game during my high school years prevented me from being able to do much exercise for a long time and I gained a lot of weight as a result. I just did 100 jump-ropes in a row, without messing up once. I don’t think I have been able to do that since I was in grade school. I’m sure there are plenty of people who would laugh at just 100 jump-rope repetitions but I feel pretty good about it.
I will be writing a short narrative fiction soon. I have not yet decided what I will write about, I was thinking maybe a romance just to see if I could write one that isn’t stupid or farcical. I was also considering writing a story about a criminal for hire, paid to go to a comic/movie convention and start chaos and mayhem amongst all the nerds there. Maybe he would just mock them mercilessly, maybe he would start fights with the braver ones, maybe he would sit in for a Q&A session until he loses his patience and starts setting off tear gas canisters in the crowd. There was also the thought of writing a story about a KGB Soviet era spy. It would start with her spy activities being discovered by Americans while in Japan or Hong Kong, somewhere exotic and in the Asian sphere of influence. The rest of the story would be her lying, stealing, and killing her way back to Moscow as she tries her hardest to avoid her American pursuers. What do you think, what sort of story would you like to see?
If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing.
