So Now That I Haven't Posted In Months, Hello Again. This Time I Actually Have A Novel That I'm Writing

Hello to the six people who may or may not check this.  Y'all are just peaches, you know that?  So the last novel that I was trying to write was my NaNoWriMo novel, which never quite finished completion.  I fizzled out about a fifth of the way through, which is pitiful.

Now that I'm done with the pity party, let's get down to business.  I have an actual novel in my head.  It doesn't have a coherent plot, but the characters are good enough to survive without it.  Well, not really.  I do need to have a plot for them to live in.  And scratch not having a plot.  I have one.  I just don't know if it is good or not.

So here is a question that I'm putting out into the universe - would you read a book that dealt with suicide?

Feel free to answer, if you exist.  Because the book deals with suicide.  Hopefully well.

So that was just, you know, a thing in my head that I put on the Internet.

I'm away laughing on a fast camel,

I Cannot Decide

For the life of me, I cannot decide whether there should be aliens or fantasy creatures in my story.

I feel like I'm writing two separate plot lines with the same characters.

Have you ever done that?

Written the same characters into different stories, like fanfic for your own imagination?

I'm going insane.

I'm thinking fantasy creatures.

Aliens can have their own story. Eventually.

Rawr rawr rawr

I have driver's ed tomorrow.

Kill meeeeeee....

Alrighty Then

Okay, so here is the deal.

I have had a book idea in my head for the past 16 years. And it has been niggling away at my innards, begging to be written.

This is me, documenting that niggling.

I don't have Word on my laptop yet, so it is either Wordpad (which SUCKS) or blog it out.

So I am choosing to blog.

What is going to happen is that every so often this thing/blog/what-have-you is going to get updated with e.g., small snippets of dialogue, character profiles, plot ideas. If you follow this, dear reader, what I write may not make a whole lot of sense to you, but be satisfied in knowing that it makes a hell of a lot of sense to me, and eventually it will pay off.

I may ask for opinions and such, and if you would answer I would love it.

Thanks a million in advance,
