Even though the Authors Anonymous movie I discussed in my last post wasn’t my cup of tea, it still inspired me. You know how when you hear about someone getting published or you see a movie about writing or you just read a book, you tend to get into an overdrive to write?
Well, remember I had that idea called The Writer’s Group? It was about three unpublished authors getting together after meeting on a writer’s group website and together they go through all the stages of writing. I never finished it; I don’t think I got very far with it. I tried different variations of the story and nothing ever really sparked. I do hope to write it someday, but it won’t be anytime soon.
With that being said, I think I decided what to write for NaNoWriMo next month. I know I said I was going to finish Far Away, but I think I’m in the mood to write something completely new.
Kris told me I should be a pantser this year because I’m always stressing myself out with outlines and such. Starting a brand new idea I know nothing about will help with that. I have the two main character names and the basic gist of the plot down, but that’s about it. Before the start of NaNo, there are a few more things I want to figure out, but I’m not going to outline. I want to have at least a decent summary to post by November first, anyway.
The two main characters are college students who meet in their creative writing class, but neither one of them have plans to be a writer. That’s all I have so far… I don’t even have a title (despite what my NaNo profile says). I noticed that whenever I lose motivation to write, I end up writing about writing. Ironic, huh?
So there you have it. After going back and forth so much, I finally decided on a project. Here’s to hoping for another win.
