So I Have An Odd Idea

I know that NaNoWriMo is right around the corner, but writing a book in a month has never really gotten me that excited.

However... I do know that I need to work on my writing and really exercise it for a while.  I just don't get and don't like the idea of writing so much without the chance to go back and redo when it's obvious the story needs to be restructured.  And I know that with anything really long it never starts where it ends up.

So... instead... given that I've been dreaming like crazy for the last month, I might as well start writing short snippets, stories, snapshots, traces, sometimes with the attendant backgrounds of the stories my dreams *should* have been.  I won't subject folks to roasted attack monkeys and other random gobbilty-gook that has no connection to something of a storyline, but I want to write every day.  I have probably plenty of material and I'll winnow it down to something more story-like. 

Short shots each day.  I am debating doing it here, where folks already read when they can, or opening up a new livejournal for just the fictional stuff.  I'd do a free, no-ads journal for it.   Any preferences from those that read here?  Comment away, please.
