So, 5 minutes ago, I was all set to start my NaNo rewrite. I opened my older file. I pulled up my outline. I even opened the vocabulary list I created to keep track of all the steampunk words I created.
I wrote my first sentence.
It wasn't my rewrite. It's not even steampunk!! It's for a story idea I had ages and ages ago. All I've got is the setting and main character and what her struggle is. Not even a name. Certainly no outline. Or anything helpful.
But that's the story that popped out. *Double sigh*
So, now I have to decide. Do I work on the rewrite I've prepped for or do I go with this new story that apparently REALLY wants to get out? I hate decisions. Especially when I really didn't intend on making one. I thought I was set.
Maybe I'll work on this one tonight and see how it goes. Then I can put off that decision until tomorrow!
Have your plans ever been hijacked (or highjacked??) by a new idea? How'd it work out for you???
