Oh No, Not Again!

Is it crazy that I have a new idea for a story and I’m going to go with it? Yes, absolutely. Well, I’m not truly going to switch to it but I’m going to make an outline and write up some character sketches. I made a Scrivener project to work on it, which translates to it interests me a lot.

Camp Nanowrimo is coming up in two months. I’ve never done it but I’m thinking about it. If I get all the pre-planning complete on this story by then, and I’m still wanting to write it, I use it then.

I don’t think I could handle using any of my current projects for the nanowrimo thing. I feel a little stuck on one, burned out on another and the one I’ve been concentrating on, well I simply don’t want it to be a nano project. Plus, I think doing something new works better for me when I’m doing a fake competition with myself.

This new story is a little odd and I honestly don’t know if it will be a longish short story, novella or a novel. It involves a female anti-hero and there is a lot of violence — two things I don’t normally write. Oh and it’s not fantasy. We’ll see how it goes.


  1. Apparently conventional wisdom is that you shouldn’t “cheat” on your novel, which may be why I’ve yet to finish any of mine. 😉 BUT, conventional wisdom is also that you should use brand new projects for NaNoWriMo, rather than something you’ve been working on for a long time!

    Basically, I think you should just do whatever feels right. I’ll be interested to hear about your new idea in the group!

  2. You should never disregard an idea for a story. Taking notes, outlining the points of the plot is the perfect way to keep those ideas until you’re ready for them. Forgetting the perfect story would be a crime!
