The Problem With the Writer's Mind

My brain is still riffing on all the other opening lines. I can't seem to get ideas out of my head.

Oh, well. I'll work on the "Delay your death" one first, as I said, but as I also said, I have a feeling I'll end up using some of the others...

Do people like pudding?

Pudding, Pudding, Pudding...

No one seems to have asked what the point of the pudding question is.

Apparently, agracru, whose last name is Crump, wants to be Tuckerized as a pudding.

Hence, I am putting Crump pudding in the story.

On a related note: it occurs to me that I could give a window here onto the creative process, since I'm now writing a story literally from scratch. I could try to explain the construction of this particular story, taken from beginning to end. The risk, of course, is in whether or not I manage to finish and sell the story. But I'm willing to take that risk. Would people be interested in reading such entries in my LJ?

And a PS to saxikath: email me to let me know how you want to be Tuckerized. I could conceivably put your name in this same story...
