I had this very convoluted dream that left me with some lingering inspiration. I have known for some time that it is advisable to ease into the publishing world with short stories. However, I haven't really had an idea for anything compelling that could be told in a short format.
I think some basic ideas from my dream could be set against the backdrop of my brewing novel world to create a short story. Of course.. I would have to change two of the characters away from Angel and an anime girl. I probably also need to remove the arcanists ala Name of the Wind. :-)
