One night last August as I was falling asleep,
a story idea popped into my head.
I turned on the light and jotted it down.
The next day I wrote a couple pages of notes
and set it aside to continue working on another project.
The other night the same thing happened as I fell asleep;
the same story idea came into my head, whispering a little louder.
But this time as I turned on the lights to write more notes,
my pulse quickened and I realized this was the story for me.
In a very un-Tracy like fashion, I've stopped working on my other project
and am now taking lots of notes on this idea that won't let me go.
An idea that's nothing like anything I've written before.
A story that intimidates me just a little bit.

Once I unlock the story, I'll begin to put it down on paper.
