Because those ever inventive jeunes femmes fatales invent a game (so clever, don't you know) called "strip croquet". You won't play it in your neighborhood; your crusty neighbors would be scandalized... but I can play it in mine, because I live in Cambridge... where beautiful young people abound, glorious to look at but without the sense they were born with. They'd love the inspired innovation. Play the theme music right away. It will put you in just the right frame of mind for this scrutiny of one of the most conspiratorial and vengeful games on earth and where (on the pretext of helping another player with her grip) you can snuggle up without demur...
But hardly the stuff of novels. So what to do. I need a good plot. Thankfully a friend told me about wikipedia a website with over plot ideas. Hatch's Plot Bank is supposedly THE place to find a plot if you are experiencing writer's block. Let's check it out.
"God intended it for good..." (Genesis 50:20). So many times another's intended bane can become our unintentional boon. Joseph had no way of knowing, when his brothers threw him into the pit, that one day he would be their literal salvation. It is amazing--no, it is God's amazing grace--that Joseph could face these envious brothers when he was at the peak of his powers and say to them, "You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result..." What a sublime example for us of rising above and beyond meanness to walk in God's footsteps and to be an instrument of good for Him.
Visiting webpage (have a peek here) the website I browse through the "How it works" page and the FAQ's page. So far so good. I select "I'm 13 and over and signing up for the first time". Still doing good. Donation? Ha! I'm a writer remember. But I really like the idea of postponing chores until December. I wonder if I could actually get away with that. Now to get connected and find a region to participate in. Wow. My entire state is a region all its own. Isn't that the truth?
Some of these are just silly and would be hard to extend for 50,000 words like #13 "ancient oak on family homestead is dying" or sound very familiar like #1892 "boys form detective agency and reveal neighborhood secrets" (encyclopedia Brown anybody?). On the other hand, there were several I noticed that could be very helpful as they could lead to timely and relevant issues like homelessness in # 52 "It looks like he lives out of his car" and high school shootings with #2236 "pawn shop is selling weapons to high-school kids".
Exercise. I take time out of each day, even if it is 10 minutes to do some form of exercise. Unable to run after neck and hip surgery, I lift weights, walk on my treadmill, or use my AbLounger. I always feel better about myself after exercising and it has helped me lose weight.
