Ideas are inconvenient things

After swearing off writing new short fiction in 2011 to pursue the long form, I put down 500 words of a new short story last night.

I was driving home looking at the black ocean when I had this image of a large maritime chain stretching towards the horizon, constantly in motion, dragging small boats – each with a person in it – away from the mainland.


And just like that, the first story for 2011 is underway.
