Ok, I've just started writing and I'm actually quite terrible at it; but, I'd like to get better! I just sat down tonight and wrote the start of what is going to be a story and now I'm stuck! I didn't really think of a plot.. Here is what I have so far... Just west of Louisville the Ohio River runs deep and green south towards the Mississippi, its strong consuming currents dragging all debris of the forest with it. The water is still bitterly cold from the previous winter and the thickly bushed overhanging trees let only thin spikes of the sun cut through onto the river bank, leaving light warm patches among this deep damp forest and closing off parts of the river from the sky. The forest is just settling into the new warmth of spring and the thick willow scrubs are covered in new bright yellow and green leaves. As the sun began to set Ryan Weinstein made his way down Highway 64 towards a bridge that connects the highway and the town of Louisville. As Ryan reached the bridge it was coming close to complete night, he leant against the rails of the bridge and looked out over the violently flowing river that widened into a calm lake with a thin layer of fog hovering above the water. In the distance he could see a fisherman on a small tin boat pulling up his anchor and packing up for the day. He looked up to the sky and could see the outline of the blue-black mountains silhouetted against a fiery orange sky behind them. Ryan began walking again and carried on across the bridge into the town; it was a Friday night and all the ranch and factory workers from the northern parts of Kentucky where in town to spend their weeks pay on liquor and at the cat houses. Ryan Walked through the streets slowly it was cold so he buried his hands deep into his pockets, in the bars he could see drunken men with their arms around woman and beer or whiskey in the other hand, Ryan kept walking till he got to a bar on the west end of the town, a small place.... This is all, it isn't very good , but i don't wanna just give up or i'll probably never get to writing again. If anybody has any ideas for a plot or where it could go from here, that would be awesome!
