This Week's Topic is:
What do you hope to be writing in one year? Three? Five?
I caved for NaNo this year. I told myself I wasn't going to bother since I'm currently learning to drive and applying for my PGCE. But I caved. I wanted to do it. And then I had to pick a project.
That took me quite a long time seeing as I have four ideas I desperately want to write. I had no idea which one to pick. In the end I go for the one I always go for: the one I've spent more time planning. I know the characters well in this project and I know where I want to go in the first draft.
But next year there'll be Camp NaNo and NaNo. So hopefully two more of these ideas can be written. Smiling Jack and a teen cult want to be written. Next year I hope I can be working on them.
And for the next five years? I still hope to have the horror ideas coming and torment even more shiny new
victims playthings characters. Also a fantasy and sci-fi. I'd like to have a crack at those genres. :)
What do you hope to be writing? Any new genres you'd like to try out in the future?
