NaNoWriMo is coming soon, and I’m considering taking the dive once again.
I don’t know why I continue to torture myself like this…
But I haven’t done any kind of planning or brainstorming, and although I have I plenty of works in progress (including a novella I’m considering giving a total revamp) half-baked ideas, and a current novel I haven’t yet started on, I want this potential NaNoWriMo novel to be 100% new.
Nothing I’ve started and stopped and started again…and stopped again.
Nothing that was once a passion but, after a year, has now become an afterthought.
Something my editor brain won’t overthink to the point that it’s debilitating.
Something I can approach as an adventure rather than potentially the next great American novel (that will only disappoint me when I read it again).
Something absolutely brand spanking new.
Maybe it’s because it’s almost Halloween, but I’m thinking of doing a ghost story. Nothing too scary, but something definitely spooky.
What do you think?
Tell me, what story should I write? I want to step out of my comfort zone a little. I’m sick of writing sad romance. Maybe a different genre will give me the boost I need to get to 50,000 words in one month for the first time ever!
