This is bad idea because…

So, I’m racking my brain on what my to write as a new story; seeing as writing makes me feel better, not to mention smrt [sic].
One of the pages I subscribe to has a post about what happened in the ’90s… and I’m thinking to myself “what a premise for story!  A person gets stuck in this eternal time warp is is socially retarded!  Awesome!”
And then I remember the show, The Winner, and figured out that a story like that shouldn’t be written.  Ever.
Other help-help-I’m-from-another-time viewings:
* Blast from the Past
* 13 going on 30
* The Time Machine (okay, grated that the OTHER way, but you know what I mean)
* Back to the Future (if you DARE bring up #3 after this post, I will tie you to railroad tracks and let you be run over by a STUPID time-traveling/ghost train.  You’ll get the stupid.)

Short version: here we go again… I will spend more time THINKING about what to write then writing.

Have you ever heard the adage that there are no new stories, only new ways to tell them?

Check out the book “20 Master Plots”- it might help you get started.

There was a show in 2002 called That Was Then about a 30 yr-old who is transported back to his high school days. It lasted a whopping 2 episodes!
