The eve of the last NaNoWriMo day is dawning. How are you all doing? Are you nearly at the finish line? Perhaps you still have a way to go? Or are you well on your way to finishing your novel?
I talked a little bit about planning for my next novel and being inspired by Enya. Obviously, this novel won’t be a work in progress until later next year. After all, I have JanuWriMo in January where I’ll be writing a crime/thriller, then I’ll be revisiting Pandora’s Kiss in February and that should take up some time.
The story idea that I have is a bit daunting as it involves a particular time in my past that still haunts me today so I’m a bit weary about going there. It’s not something I want to do but as the saying goes if you can’t shake an idea off then it’s got to be written about. Just scares me half to death thinking about it.
Have you ever had an idea like that? A one so strong where it’s with you every single moment and you can’t shake it off?
The last time this happened it was with Pandora’s Kiss. It’s so unexpected.
Pandora’s Kiss still occupies most of my thoughts, too. Even though it’s away and I’m not supposed to think about it. I try to push it away when it happens, though. No point revisiting it of it’s still fresh in my head.
Best of luck wherever you are in your WIP’s.
