Yep, I did it…I finally made a decision regarding which idea to explore for NaNo. But before I tell you, I have to set the scene.
Monday night I threw out a question to my facebook and twitter buddies – which idea (all YA) should I use for NaNo: A dark gothic romance, a dark realistic contemp, or a dark, creepy dystopian.
Interestingly, my twitter buds were in 100% agreement that dystopian was the way to go, while my fb buds were screaming for the gothic romance.
So Tuesday morning, I got up and started writing. And you know what…the words had NOTHING to do with any of my story ideas. Not.One.Thing.
Nor was it on any “real” story. It was really just a few scenes…unattached to anything else.
So, now what? I need to get started if I have a hope of finishing. And trust me…I NEED to get another story written.
To find the answer I decided to just listen to some specially themed music – dark movie theme stuff – and see if anything pops into my head.
Song after song played, until finally images formed…..
I was clear on what I felt like writing.
So which one is it???
The Gothic romance.
Whew, glad that decision was made.
The only other barriers between me and NaNo? Finishing the two projects I have. Guess I better get working….
What is your NaNo story about? Feel like sharing?
