I had a story idea for the Santa’s Sweets anthology, had took down some notes, then decided to go another way. While I liked the idea and would still like to follow through on the story, it was a bit too heavy. It was a sad, break up story with a little twist. The story I came up with soon after is much lighter, very naughty, and I think it will fit in very well. I thought breifly of writing them both, turning them in and letting the editor decide which he wanted to use, or see if he wanted to use both, but I think that would be a bit ambitious with my low energy and time limitations.
I managed about five handwritten pages (front and back) last night. matter of fact, the story is virtually done but for trasferring it into a word file, adding detail and cleaning it up. It’s tentatively titled Special Delivery but that’s subject to change because I think it’s too simple and sort of predictable.
I saw a post in one of my writers’ groups that reminded me about NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November. I’ve only participated once, about three years ago. Actually, that was when I got the bulk of What It Looks Like From The Outside done. If I could ever decide what I want to focus on as far as Novel 2 goes, I’m thinking it would certainly behoove me to participate this year.
I have part time work tonight, so I don’t anticipate much writing. I hope to manage some over the next couple of days with a possible turn in on Sunday.
