But... I was jumped by a shiny new idea the other week. It ran around in my head for a while, content to be left on its own to stumble around in my subconscious.
Last night it bounced to the forefront of my brain and demanded some attention. Apparently it knows life is already on overload, but it really doesn't care. :) I'm not going to start writing it yet, but I did cave in and write some mini character bios and a general overview.
My steampunk is YA, my NaNo is an adult romantic mystery. Shiny new idea??? Neither one of these.
MG fantasy adventure with a touch of sci fi. Yup. New age level and new genre. Why should anything be easy? :)
Do your ideas bounce in from all directions, or are they more orderly creatures who know how to form a line and wait their turn? (Someone please tell me I'm not the only one with ideas all over the spectrum!)
