This story that yesterday I couldn’t even really call an idea is growing and burning in my mind. It’s not just an idea, it’s a character that has a story to tell, and she’s piling info onto me, but not so quickly that I feel overwhelmed. As the morning progressed so did my understanding of my new character, the world she lives in, and a few minor characters as well.
It’s going to be fantasy, or spec fic at least. The story will sit neatly in the world I created during NaNo ’07 so I don’t have to do major world building, which is awesome because I don’t think this is going to be a novel. Just a short story, or maybe a novella.
So I’ve already got some sign posts for throughout the story. The start is already strong and I’ve an inkling on the end. Now all I need is to get writing, which will happen during Jake’s next sleep in an hour or so.
I’m really looking forward to it 😀 It’s been a while since I’ve had a character burn in my mind like this.
