New Ideas

In a quick update to the post I made on Friday, I haven't heard back from the people at the writing competition but it's only been a few days since then, and so I wasn't really expecting anything. To be honest it was only being mentioned as a cunning plan to attempt to extend this a little bit. The English aren't evil; we're just crafty.
I like foxes.
Although I suppose the main point is also a bit of a continuation from that post. I mentioned that unfortunately I'm not much of an idea machine. I don't really get a ton of ideas. Kind of lamentable for a writer I know. I DID however get what I thought was a pretty decent idea in the last few days. I'm going to finish up Immortal Space before starting anything new though, don't worry. Sheesh I really want to get that done. Especially because I am getting close to the end. And I've been working on it for way too long. Then again I remember how long it took me to finally finish Tulips. I think that took about a year.

Of course that was partly down to insanity. Wheee.
This new idea means that all in all, I actually have a solid three ideas for what to do after I finish Immortal Space, which should see me going for a while. If we use my current output I should be finished with those ideas in about six years. Damn. Though of course I'm going to make sure that isn't the case. My new idea is a much more mainstream story, but I reckon I can pull it off. It's something I should be able to make a novella out of at least. If not a full length novel. Heck with the right kind of development I could probably make it a series. The same is true of Caspian actually. I guess when you think about it that idea was pretty mainstream too.

Dammit thinking about all these neat ideas I have makes me want to write more. 

What was the last great idea you had?

  2. Always good to be full of ideas! A mainstream novella, you say? Do we get to hear any more about it? Mainstream can be fun. It's nice to change things up every once in a while.

    1. It's almost painful to say this, but I think the best way to put it would be a supernatural romance-ish kinda story with some actual creative flair. I wouldn't allow myself to write the next Twilight. No one should sink that low. I also wrote and submitted the 200 word flash fiction story just now. Luckily the unedited version was only 250 words and it wasn't too hard to cut out 50 words.

  3. Can't wait for you to release IS so--- no wait, that's such a loaded acronym these days, damn.
    Can't wait for you to release Immortal Space so I can actually "buy your shit". Not gonna lie, pretty stoked.

    Last great idea was actually a small amount of theming that fit nicely into a previous idea. Remember that Super Ludus thing, the story idea about a VR game adventure? (Note to self, call it FR, Full Reality.) Haven't done fuck all for it in over a year now (need to rewrite Caves first, too), but the idea is still there. Now with an extra little bit of story filled in, huzzah!

    1. Well of course by then it won't be shit. Maybe we should come up with a new acronym. ImSp? I wrote some more of it today, a good 2500 words, so we're much closer than we were last week.

      I remember that idea you had. I think you should really get that done because I would enjoy reading that. Oh and you need to rewrite Caves of course. You're all busy with your interning so it's understandable. Write in your downtime.

  6. You're developing ideas faster than you can execute them!
