My Fairy Godmother appears to be on sabbatical because I've seen no evidence of a pumpkin coach. I'll be trudging through the Quagmire of Querying (huge risk here of slipping into the Slushpile from which few writers return), launching my manuscript into the Sea of Submissions, and climbing the Precipice of Publication without her help. Wish me luck.
Writing something is the first step. That's where the inspiration comes in. On Thursdays I'll share the things that made me say "Now, THAT might be fun to write about!"
Please feel free to add your own inspirations in Comments.

Angry, ruthless crabs... Crab dip, anyone?
