October is in four days. That means NaNo is about five weeks away.
Pretty much how I feel about it. I have zero ideas. None.
Well, I have one in my file but my daughter gave me a seriously dirty look when I mentioned it (she’s off school today in a planned school closure). Wanna see it?
Of course you do.
The big bad biker and the girl with the demon eye are on a mission from God. (rescue? Replace? Kill/destroy? Hide?) Adopted by an animal with different coloured eyes on their travels.
I don’t think it’s a horrible idea. There’s a reason I wrote it down. I don’t remember the reason offhand but there it is. So I’m kind of sitting here with a big WTF?? look on my face over that one.
I do think I like those characters though, the girl with the weird eyes – one demon, one normal – and the biker. I keep seeing the
biker as a Kris Kristofferson type. Right about this time frame too (the picture here). Just starting to go white, face lined with life and age.
mmhhmmmmm I think I like this look.
As I was saying, I could use these two. It’d have to be something related to Gods, perhaps. A divine mission? Yeah, I keep coming back to the rescue/hide thing.
The female though. A girl? A woman? Is it a female? Maybe it’s a male who has lived as a girl for years in order to hide.
I have about sixteen books and movies floating in my head now. I don’t want to be like everyone else. I want originality.
I do like the biker character. I wonder what he’s doing. Where he’s been. What, if anything, he looks forward to. Is he a cowboy type? I don’t think I’ve written a western before. I think his name IS Kris. I like it.
Maybe he’s the grey hat character. Neutral chaotic. (Yes, that was a D&D reference, get over it *laughs*)
Hmmm…. Food for thought. Maybe his story and his mission/goal/the plotline & theme will come clear if I develop him.
Interesting. A character driven story. I’ve never done that either.
Off to do other things to get ready for my trip. 9 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes until my plane taxis away from the terminal! Not that I’m counting. 😉
