So here we are, the last day of October. The brink of November and National Novel Writing Month. And I’m still not sure what I’m going to write.
Actually, last night as I fell asleep, I had a brilliant idea that had something to do with tarot cards but that’s all I can remember. Usually I get up and write these brainstorms down but I was beat yesterday. We had a big family celebration and the day before I’d been participating in a dog show two hours away… so yes, I was tired and didn’t write anything down. And now I’m paying for it.
I’ve always wanted to do a DragonLance style book where all the choices are decided by a dice roll. I think that would be a lot of fun. But I realize I would need a Dungeon Master to set up the choices and guide me on the storyline. That’s not going to be a time-smart choice for November. One day though, I’m going to do this.
Nick and I are planning to attend the midnight First Minute Write-In at the Denny’s in Santa Clara tonight with other Silicon Valley WriMos. It should be fun. It will be our first in person contact with writers in our new region. By then I will have nailed down my topic. Or my genre at any rate! I’ll keep you posted.
