Sometimes my days involve a lot of admin work and not much else -- answering emails, reviewing contracts, proofreading, conference calls. I'm in this business to create, but my schedule doesn't permit me to just make up stories every day, and I worry sometimes that my creative muscles are going to atrophy.
What I need is a little bit of daily discipline. Something that requires me to take five minutes out of every day and exercise my brain a little.
And so I've decided to start Plot of the Day, a Tumblr for posting one random story idea every day. It's in the same milieu as Madame Zee -- a small thing that I'm doing for personal reasons. But this time, I've made it so others can share in this tiny daily writing exercise, too. Hopefully we'll all get something out of it!
