Writing exercises

M gave me Nancy Kress's book Characters, Emotion & Viewpoint. On my recent vacation I read through the book and have started doing the exercises. OK, so I haven't been editing Mysterious Paris (like I should), but I have some interesting character-based ideas for new stories (not like I was really suffering from a shortage) and am doing some good character prep work for getting back to A Science Fiction Fantasy.

And I saved a really gruesome story from The New York Times "Metropolitan" section, which gives me ideas for possibly a couple of stories. It was about a small company that cleans up death scenes: homicides, dead people rotting in their apartment, etc.
