Signs, stories and ships

I am a big believer in signs.  Not the kind that you hold at a football match or marching down the street in protest, but the kind that let you know you are on the right track.  It is like those time of unlikely coincidence where two unrelated points of interest or ideas suddenly reveal their connection and you have that realization that things are coming together as they should.

I am not going to get into any detail now, but as I mentioned earlier, I have been gathering notes for a writing project.  Well, tonight I was doing a bit of research on some of the random ideas that I had jotted down as possibilities and all of the traits that I look for to give my ideas a green light in any project were all present.  These are just simple things like checking how commonly used words or ideas are (I usually just Google them) so that I am not too cliché or unoriginal when writing.  Or tonight, while researching some character names that had just come to me while free writing, I discovered that one in particular has an unusually integral relation to one of the main themes of this site.

Anyway, my point here is that I like when I get signs that some of my work may actually pay off.  And also that this project may get rolling a lot quicker than I expected.

On another note, Brass Goggles posted an article about a group building a pirate ship for Burnin Man.  I really want to go this year but I probably will not have the money or the time, but I think I may just buy one of these neat Tripods that they are selling at Lost Machine to help fund the project.
