"We're the only country on earth stitched together by words and, most important, their dangerous progeny, ideas. And those ideas have had weight. They have had force, not just for us in our eternal dealings, but for the rest of the world." ~ Ken Burns

Day 23

"A story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end... but not necessarily in that order."

- Jean Luc Godard

Prompt of the Day: Take some kind of fear or frustration from your real life, and put it into your book. A character might have money issues (even if you have to simplify your 40k grad school loan into "the ATM doesn't work"), or car trouble, or the flu - or something good, of course, if something has recently happened you're elated about. Whatever it is, take the emotion from your real life, and stick it in your novel.
