Oh golly, that's a lot. No pressure at all. Leaving Idaho? Where you headed?
We're moving to Austin...I have a whole host of feelings about it. But it's happening.
OMG, you're close to ME!!! Well, 8 hrs close. Austin is a fun place. Seeing the Formula 1 race downtown there is on my bucket list. And the bats! I love renting a kayak and watching the bats emerge at dusk from under the bat bridge. Amazing nature right in the middle of an urban center.

Some years ago, I had a dream that a box of something was left on my doorstep. While that wouldn't really work as a story, I came up with two other things that could be left on one's doorstep that would be troubling for a similar reason. I thought about it on a walk, and one idea is a lot more solid than the other.
If anyone's having trouble getting an idea, I can recommend brainstorming reasons that box contents could be troubling and go from there.
It's so tough writing beginnings, knowing what order to release information in—
The idea for this challenge, together with the "putting it all together" part, came far too easily and far too quickly. I have to be missing something along the way. It must simply be an incredible piece of rubbish. Good things just aren't this easy.

I'm trying to think of an idea that would be a good way to start a much longer story. I want to practice some advice I've seen lately from publishers about a good beginning to a story, like making the setting/situation easy to grasp quickly and the character voice strong enough to pull you into the story.
However, thinking of such a situation for a box in challenging. Not in a bad way, just in a way that makes me stretch my mind.
