I haven’t written anything – properly – for a whole week. Its fabulous! I feel so relaxed and almost rested. I say almost because the boys are still messing about at night. Its not so bad as it has been in the past, but I could certainly do with more rest. Still, having the rest means I’m catching up with books (I’m reading The Hunger Games now) and some much missed TV. Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons and working through series six of Supernatural are all going towards making me a happy bunny. 🙂
But… despite all that, I remain quite excited! The buzz which comes with NaNoWriMo is just beginning and I’m starting to think about if I want to write directly into Word (like I normally do) or if I want to use Scrivener, like I did while editing SORB. That’s a decision still to be made, but I’m getting there. Either or, I don’t suppose it makes much difference.
Anyway…! I still don’t know which is going to be the idea that takes off, but I like talking to you about them. So if you missed idea one, then you should find it here. This, idea two is a rewrite of something I did quite a few years ago, a bit like my first NaNo in which I wrote Clash Of The Animal Kings. I’ve been wanting to return for it for quite some time, but for some reason (well I know why) I haven’t got back to it.
This piece didn’t really have a name – I think it might have been one of those I called IDKY (I Don’t Know yet), or something like that.
I realise that doesn’t tell you much, but think along the lines of a sort of through the looking glass adventure; someone transported to another world and shakes things up when they get there. Have you ever seen the Tenth Kingdom? I’m fairly certain that I wrote my ‘first draft’ of this tale after that.
