They say every story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end.
Well, mine officially has a beginning.
I spent a few hours after I wrote my last (first) NaNoWriMo post trying to work out what my story is going to be about, and have a very thin (so far) theme.
I considered going the fantasy route, possibly even some fan fiction based on one of the games that I play, but ended up deciding against that option and going for an original science fiction piece.
And since time and busyness is against me, I’m hoping to complete a long short story, or perhaps a short novella. Instead of aiming at the 1666 words per day necessary for a NaNoWriMo novel, I’ve decided to just make sure I write something each day. That might be a paragraph, or it might be a page, the point is that something is getting written and progress is being made.
Speaking of progress, tonight I put down approximately 200 words, including the first and last sentences in the story. It seems the writing Muse saw fit to give me that bit of inspiration at least. I hope she sticks around for the long haul.
Now comes the hard part.
