Ok, so I tried to write this story about a wierd boy ... and I wrote a prolouge where the family tries to hide this photograph. But then ... aw, shucks, you know the rest. It ended. Abruptly. Hence my title.

Amy had heard it by heart.

that doesn't make sense. Other than that, quite interesting. Hmm. I'll think about that.

One of Levine's stratigies was to list ten things that could happen, no matter how weird or random. Don't stop until ten, and see if any work.

So... does Dillian pop up now and then, or is he gone?

Elaine (caladhiel) I really liked it, Adrienne! I guess I liked the line Amy had heard it by heart. I thought it was a funny twist on the usual phrase. Were you think of having it be realistic fiction or fantasy/sci-fi?

I don't understand that line at all, though. Amy had heard it by heart? huh?

fantasy. Dillon's going to be like this wierdo that can do ... __________. Amy had heard the phrase "Who's that guy?" by heart.

Elaine (caladhiel) Okay, well, maybe he could be sort of like Jasper (in Twilight) and be able to feel other's emotions. Or maybe more like that little girl in Eldest (sorry, can't remember her name) that Eragon blessed/cursed and have to suffer the pain of others. Or maybe a mix of both? Does that give you any ideas?

Elva. Her name is Elva, Elaine. Anyway. How do you hear something by heart? you can say something by heart, but...

Like the new pic, Adrienne.

Elaine (caladhiel) Oh, yes, thank you Marisol!
Well, I guess I took it as, like when you learn something by heart you can say it without thinking, Amy had heard the words so much that she knew what they were going to say before they said it without really thinking. *shrug*

I guess. Maybe Dillian's dead? Maybe his parents murdered him, but he stuck around?

Where do you want the plot to go from here?
