This story I'm working on is turning into one of the frustrating, iterative ones where I keep writing and discarding openings. And I really need to get moving on it, because it's due Readercon Sunday, and there are two cons between now and then. (The other is CONvergence.)

The problem with this one is I'm coming at it bigendian, as it were. I know the theme; I have an idea of the characters; I even sort of know the plot. But I'm going to have to throw out all of my worldbuilding and try something different. And the current opening I have is static. I need to blow something up, introduce some conflict.

At least I might have a title. Or maybe not.
