I must be out of my mind. Trying to write 50,000 words in 30 days is crazy enough, but to try to fit it in around a very heavy courseload at school is a whole new level of insanity. As it is, I've got to work up ideas for a storybook illustration, play with some dry media and watercolor, and draw a few dozen figures for another class. I love the creative challenge of it all, and the difference creatively between writing and drawing, but my little brain is already tired, lol. Day 3 of Nanowrimo and I'm already struggling. Haven't written a word yet today, but hopefully when I finish this my muse may cooperate enough to get my word count in. Those elusive plot bunnies are trickier than ever however.
I am reworking the storyline I started last year but couldn't get too far, a time travel where a modern day woman is drawn across the centuries to heal the heart of the world's most notorious outlaw and to help Robin Hood and company save England from the evil sheriff and scheming Prince John. I describe it as Outlander in Sherwood Forest. Should be great fun once I get to parts I actually have worked out. Lots of questions until then -- like the mechanism for the time travel, the how, the why, etc is still so unclear. Might just skip over the whole present day scenes, which I have only the barest hint of a plan for anyway and get the girl to Sherwood and see what happens. And try to resist the urge to pound my head into the keyboard, lol.
Not a lot else going on in my world. That is a good thing. My best friend and I are in the early planning stages of developing a new superhero duo and story and that's so much fun. We laugh ourselves silly on Facebook chats throwing out wild ideas and sometimes some of them stick. I'm already half in love with the villain's sidekick, which could prove a fun little wrinkle later in the plotline. I never would have thought I'd have anything to do with superheroes, but when an idea bites, you just can't let it go. We'll see how things progress. It's great fun at this point, whatever it becomes in the future.
