Literary Salmon


I started a short story yesterday. I started a personal essay this morning. I've been thinking about ways of starting a new novel. I looked through some of my old files and saw a number of stories that I'd started and have yet to finish. These stories seem like salmon: many begin the trek to spawn, but only a few actually complete the journey.

I was just talking with another writer about the number of unfinished drafts sitting on our hard drives... so much potential that the world will probably never see.
