grumble

Short stories don't want to be revised.

Novels don't want to be written.

I should finish up an outline and write a short -- new, fresh, original writing.  But my two most complete outlines are stymied.

I may just set something on fire in one.

And have the nobles in the other arrested for something dull and predictable like disturbing the peace.  I don't want something too clever because it's a side issue and shouldn't distract too much
