I find myself in a rather unusual quandary. I am but three days away from NaNo kicking off, and I am if anything further away and more confused about what I want to write.
I have several ideas bouncing around in my head, but I am not sure if they are all novels, if they are all individual or if they will be the sort of free-flowing project that NaNo is all about.
The idea I had, was but a small thing, the story line around it I cannot seem to settle on, and I find it rather disconcerting. I like the project, and know there is something there, but I don’t want to force it just for the sake of NaNo.
I could always fall back on my safety net of Highway III, but that just feels like a bit of a cop-out.
I have recently met a new character I really want to write about, but than again, the relationship is new, so maybe not NaNo material.
So I think, I will leave it all up to the writing Gods. I will wait until October 31st, and then scour the news headlines and pick one to develop. It is a challenge and being completely new, I have reduced the risk of me over thinking every page. Besides, I think it will make it fun… even more so than normal.
That being said, I will therefore be going in completely blind; no plan, no idea, and some may say, no clue.
Apart from this one minor details… a story, I am fully prepared for NaNo, and ready for the challenge of the NaNo Diary I plan to keep alongside the main project. Whether it will work I don’t know, but in any case, it will be fun to read in years to come when I am King of the Horror world…. I mean… um…
