Found this website (which is not taking new submissions) that had a great idea. Take a picture and write a story about it, with the story due at the end of the week.  You can read what they got here: http://www.52stories.net/

Book update: I’m treading water in Chapter 11. The issue, I think, is that this chapter is mostly new. That means that I’ll probably have to go back to it a few times after I ‘finish’ it just to make sure it receives the same number of rewrites…

Still trying to finish by September. Fingers crossed. Brain bubbling away…
