An amazing idea came together for me this week. An idea I’ve been playing with for a while but just couldn’t get all the right components together. Until now. Just like Naughty List, where the idea had bounced around in my head for years before they found the right fit. Only problem it’s a fantasy romance.
Don’t get me wrong, I love fantasies. Good fantasies are amazing. But they take so much work and so much planning, which are not my forte. But these characters are great, and I’ve always dreamed of writing something so big, and impressive as this, so I’m going to go for it.
I’ve started a world encyclopedia, and have a creation myth for my world all put together. The pieces are coming together, slowly. And that’s what I need to remember about this particular WIP. This one is not a race. I can write contemporaries fast (very minimal world building, once the idea comes I can just write) but I can’t create a whole world fast. It took billions of years to create the earth. I can’t expect to do it in a week.
So I’ll be working on my fantasy, here and there, and see how it goes. But I’ll continue on my same path with my other stories. And I’ll probably ignore it during November. Less than four weeks to Nanowrimo. I can hardly wait.
