"Eat Well, Stay Fit, Die Anyway"

Validate my Latest Crazy Idea, Please

I think that after being away for far too long, I finally have a fresh idea for a series of short fiction pieces for SilentTalkie, but I wanted to run it past you first.  It came to me last night while I was struggling to fall asleep with a bunch of stuff on my mind.

Who wouldn’t want to read a series of stories where in each one, the protagonist quits his or her job in creative and bridge-burning ways?  It’s exactly the type of thing that youv’e always wanted to do, but common sense has stopped you cold in your tracks. That’s why fiction is great.

Weird, right?  I probably should’ve started this post off with a caveat that I had a really late night last night and really early morning this morning, so I’m a wee tad short on sleep.  Hence all the weirdness and me wanting to run this idea past some normal people before I go running off with it.

So, your thoughts?

    What I think we really want is the return of Dale’s Day

    Um, disregard what Jared says but follow your current line of thought as far as possible!

    “The name that shall never be spoken” has been spoken! It is written that the sky will now fall upon our heads and there will tearing of clothes and gnashing of teeth. I hope you’re proud of yourself, Jared. You just ended the world. Thanks.
