Fiddling around

As part of my personal preparation for National Novel Writing Month, I am fiddling around with ideas for a story line. The other day I did a simple tarot card spread to see what it might offer, and something did emerge. I made notes, but it did not grab me inspiration-wise. 

Today I was looking back over some ideas from the past, and I did a little writing on what I had planned as a short story about a mysterious boy with wings who shows up in a small town. That flowed easily for a while, and although I had planned it as a story -- and that may be what it winds up being -- I am thinking it might work for a novel if I give it a chance.

Perhaps the story, like the boy, will have wings.
