Today I have time to write the short story. But I forgot the idea. Completely. I need to go brush my teeth until I remember it. (No, it wasn't the one about the Tasmanian devil destroying the world with tainted chocolate.)
Wait...I just remembered the story has marionettes in it! Ugh...that's all I remember...so the story is going to be different than it would otherwise have been. Oh well.
Marionettes are super creepy to me. Apparently, I have watched too many terrifying movies involving toys that come to life and act out in evil ways.
My original story was not a horror story, that I do remember. If the new story ends up being macabre, I must find the way to include terrifying music too.
