Substitute "damn" every time you’re inclined to write "very"; your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.
— Mark Twain

Outlining a new story. Working title: "Homecoming."

[EDIT: After more outlining of this story I know this is not going to be a short story as I originally thought. I was looking to rework a short story I wrote back in April 2004—originally titled "The Green Man"—and it appears that my conception of the idea has developed and expanded considerably more than I expected. So, yeah, this means that I will soon be writing another novel. This will be the first that I’ve ever outlined, however. I’ve always been a "seat-of-the-pants" writer, but I’ve been trying different things lately, wanting to see if I can’t find something else that will work better for me.]

The Shape of Things to Come, by Audioslave
Well it’s late in the hour,
And a few more grains of sand will fall,
On the colorful flowers grown upon the dust and moss.
Now I fear the worst is near.
I hold them close and count their years.
I pray a ray of light appears,
To shine down on us here.

Break down in the shape of things to come.
But I’m moving on like a soldier.
And I’ll say it now, when all is said and done.
It’s not ours to break the shape of things to come.

There’s a crack in the clouds,
But only for a moment now.
Like an eye looking out,
The blue sky spies the roads we will go down.
I wonder what they hold for us.
I hold my family to my breast.
I fear the worst and hope the best,
Will come to see us blessed.
