Rami could not remember a time that she did not fly.
Sure, maybe at birth. A few minutes grounded amid the shards because, you know, you can't really be moving around much. At least mothers can't. But, that's forgotten time, too-little-to-have-memories time. Since then, the skyships. Cargo screamers, mishmash hulks, single-pods, darts and scouts, cobbled up junk jets. Splintered wood and cracked plastic and dirty aluminum. The only constants in her universe.
I've had this idea for a short story, novella, book, whatever turns out to be, that I want to write for/with my daughter, and this is a beginning that popped into my head this morning. It may not last through editing, but I'm not unhappy with it.
@ellowrites @kseniaanske I think maybe I should plot first, before I go any further
DO IT!!! Plot, plot, plot. Unless you know the structure to hang your story on, you run a risk of writing yourself into a corner. Of course, there is always a chance that you won't. Are you willing to take it? Up to you.
After I have thrown away 375,000 words and 1 year of writing, I'm cured. No more writing without plotting first for me. That was simply too painful a lesson to learn.
