I'm staring at a blank page with an even blanker mind.

Why is it so hard to have an idea relating to fire?
Burn, Alex, burn!!!
 ;D
Imagine the weather... turn the temperature up...

Turn it up? It can go hotter than this???
It can: it turns into... FIRE 8)

Edit: I was thinking more about this on the way home, hehe. Imagine a world where people have to maintain their body temperature under a certain level, otherwise they spontaneously combust... anyone wants to use this idea?

Dibs on spontaneous combustion.

I might actually have an idea here. It's a miracle.

And here I was thinking with just two submissions, I have a good chance to come second!   :(

I managed a thing.  ;D

Thanks to @ScarletBea for the idea.

(Also, it's the same main character and setting as my January 2017 entry. Not necessary to read that first, but the idea fit that world so well)

@ScarletBea and all, I think I need an extra day. I lost any energy about my half-written story, and have a new idea but limited time (because I’m sooooo busy sitting around after that pesky heart attack thing).
