I am so close to being done with A Sawmill's Hope. I feel like I've worked on it for ever. I decided to lay off blogging and vid games and other things just long enough to finish it. I wanted to be done several months ago.
This is all beside the point. I have new motivation. Nanowrimo means start a new one for me. In this case it will be one of two ideas that have been idling around in my mind.
1. Super Mario Bros + UFC + Gladiators (the real ones... who kill each other)
2. Insurance + Post Apocalypse
Did I make these sounds vague and possibly idiotic on purpose?
It's just that the more specific I get, the tighter the walls are around me. I want to be an outliner... But I have deep seated personality traits that make writing from the seat of my pants come naturally.
This will be my first project since A Sawmill's Hope. And when I started that I just knew it was my Magnum Opus. My first and last great work. But that wasn't true. I want to make a career out of this. And I feel like I get better with every new draft (Yes, I'm still on draft 4 of A Sawmill's Hope).
I will finish my current work before I start writing the next. This means Nanowrimo will get ahead of me. Hopefully I can catch up.
