Crap. I've got this absolutely brilliant idea for a story (or maybe a short screenplay) that I want to write, but I'm not supposed to be typing. Bah bah and double-bah. Anyone want to take dictation?
Anyhow, inspired by my idea and by the 500-word-fanfic meme I saw on sardonix's journal, how about this: since I can't be writing in volume, can people suggest ideas for me to tackle in 500 words or less? Any genre is fine - from fanfic to epic poetry to how-to manual - but you've got to give me a topic, one line to use, and one character (or, for non-fiction, fact) that you'd like me to include. Just drop it in the comments and I'll post your piece as soon as I write it.
God, being mostly unable to type is driving me fucking batty. Can you tell?
