I’m a little behind this week but that’s expected. I did learn a most excellent and valuable lesson. It goes something like this. If you come up with a completely and totally awesome idea you need to have a damn good reason for it to exist. There are a lot of stories that have really cool world conceits, points of view, or other little tricks that they use. The problem with most of these is that when the book isn’t written completely around this cool idea the idea is often super way cooler than everything else in the book. It’s either that, or the books just feels wandery and off. I had to have a real discussion with myself on whether or not to use my awesome idea. The thing I came up with is that I always have the opportunity to write other books. I had a chit chat with myself and found out that I can reconfigure some things to completely rework the story around my new idea. This meant doing a lot of digging up around the little that I had written, but since I a little behind already it isn’t that big a deal.
On a completely unrelated note here’s a song I like. because I probably listen to as much music during NaNoWriMo as I do during any other time of year.
