As the school year draws to a close and students and teachers alike can taste summer holidays in the hot desert air, my brain is juggling several potential new novel ideas.
I didn't participate in NaNo (congrats to those who did!), because my NaNo month seems to be in January, when I can laze about at home with the air conditioner chugging away.
But WHAT TO WRITE? A shiny new idea is what my mind and fingers need. I have a list of plenty of premises, except nothing's calling to me in that way I'm sure you all know well. It has to have a head-turning concept and hook, as I've realised over the past few months. I've entered too many contests and seen too many amazing ideas to be kidding myself about that now.
I'm also going to download a trial version of Scrivener to see what all the fuss is about. Whatever my new project is, it'll be part of my pioneer effort on a confangled new software.
So. What is everyone else working on during December/January? Anyone thinking of starting a new project?
