So today is the first day of Seventy Days of Sweat Round 2. Seems like that should have a catchy tagline.
So what am I doing? Nothing much, besides trying to give Kettle some needed encouragement. I’m definitely not ready with my ideas and I’m glad I have another 2 weeks before Nano starts to get my stuff together.
I’ve been trying to decide when I should come out of the closet and tell you guys what I’m doing, and it’s not like I can talk about “my project” until January and manage to not mention any specifcs. So, rather than waste a lot of time soul-searching and trying to figure out why I’m afraid to own up to it, I guess today is as an appropriate day to just tell you what I’ve been up to.
I want to write romance about superheroes.
There. I said it. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long, long time. But I haven’t felt qualified. Hmmm, good Thursday Thirteen topic: 13 Reasons I’m not qualified to write Superhero Fic…
Well, I was going to list some of those reasons, but changed my mind. Anyway, not feeling qualified now, but I guess, among other things, I’m feeling like I want to work on something really challenging and since I don’t actually have, like, a career or anything to get in the way of writing whatever I damn well please, this would be a good time. Right?
Anyway, despite the fact that I don’t read comics, don’t like most sci-fi I read, and am an idiot when it comes to all things science class and most things abstract, I love superheroes. Love. Them. I think I’ve got a few Thursday Thirteens that speak to that. I love their honor, and their angst, their darkness, their loneliness, the tough choices… I love all that stuff, and I’m finally going to give it a shot and be the drama queen I’ve always wanted to be.
Anyway, I have a premise for Book1 but no title. I have some ideas about my world and how things work. I have some characters and plots we’ll see in a few different stories. I don’t have a playlist for this story which is really kicking my butt.
That’s all the outing of my story I can handle for today. I’ll have more specifics for you soon!
Ps. I really am looking for Sweat/Nano buddies who are going to take this thing seriously and intend to post about it at least once a week. If that’s you and you’d like me to come by and read and comment, please let me know so I can add you to my sidebar.
