Write On
I'm trying to get back into my novel. I really wish I were closer to submitting, but I'm nowhere near that stage. I get random thoughts and plots in my head and I write them down and try and use them. The problme is that I'll suddenly get in the mood to write and I'll just jump right into it, not really having a full plot or characterization and that is a MAJOR problem because then I get stuck, stop and either end up scrapping the whole thing or starting over. Stupid right? Yeah, I thought so too.

And as sad as it sounds, it's been hard for me to get a damn original thought in my genre, which might not even have its own genre. It's sort of detective horror/fantasy. I don't even know where that fits. But not having orginal thoughts worked well for J.J. Abrams The wunderkind who struck gold with ideas that you've seen everywhere and anywhere before. Why can't that be me? heh.

I have all my characters, and names, I don't think I'll be changing them again. I have a general story, a villian (but I really rather not have another 'destroy the world' villian agenda). I have love interests, sexual tension, sex, violence, bad language and a young, tough protaganist. Sound like something you might wanna read? I hope so.

On to Chapter one...

    Is it too late to suggest writing in a leprechaun character. It could loosely be based on me for example. Yes the heroic leprechaun who saves the Chicagoan princess from the evil Dr Buff ;)
