I pulled up the file of something I started before flipside popped into my brain and demanded to be put first. What I had amounts to only about 5 single spaced pages, and in reading it, I kept thinking, “Hey, this is pretty good!” But then I got to where I stopped and I realized I have no idea where I was going with it. Not a clue.
So I decided to mull it over, letting it percolate in the back of my brain while I distracted myself with other things.
|BMW F650 GS -- contender #1|
I’ve spent the last week looking at pictures of bikes, reading about bikes, surfing different online for a for peoples’ opinions about bikes. I even dragged the Spouse Thingy to look at a bike, and was bummed to discover a bike I had really only had in my peripheral vision was no longer being shipped to the U.S. As soon as I couldn’t have it, I kinda wanted it.
|Suzuki V-Strom 650 -- contender #2|
I’ve narrowed it down to two bikes. And let me tell you, I can waste an incredible amount of time poking around online looking for information on just those two bikes. I can waste other peoples’ time by picking their brains about them. I even managed to waste someone else’s afternoon by getting her to test ride one of the bikes because her friend owns one and was willing.
Still, in all that information vacuuming, I still haven’t figured out where the story I was working on was headed.
Clearly, I need to look at more porn.
