I had an exciting drive to work today. Lately I've been thinking on a story inspired by the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky. The idea came some time ago shortly after I found a CD with the piece. It was during the finalé(you know it. Don't make me hum it for you) that I had a startling vision; a short scene at the thrilling climax of an adventure story. It moved me so much that I didn't so much imagine it as watched with my own eyes. I knew then that I had to do something with it, it was too good not to use. More has been coming to me lately. I have a reason for the scene to take place, a character and a few more details, now I just need to build a story up to it. It's not the first time I've started with an ending and worked my way to it. It actually makes getting there easier since the compass knows where to point. Of course, I still gots lotsa thinkin' ta do. It'll be a while until I actually put pen to paper but I'll be havin' fun with my new toy.
