I've started a new exercise where, every morning, I take the Merriam-Webster Word Of The Day and use it to inspire a one page scene. My goal is to try and pack as much of a story into a single page as possible; let's see how I do, eh?

12-21-12: "Solstice"

Sorry I missed a couple there, folks! I've been traveling back to Rhode Island the last few days!

Solstice: "The time of year when the sun is farthest north of the equator or farthest south of the equator." (ie. the date that some people believe the Mayans predicted the world would end.)
