It’s that time of year again! ❤
I signed up to write some short stories exploring genres I don’t get to write often–sci-fi and dystopian–and brainstormed up some ideas.
I have four possible projects to work on…
- A young girl who lives on a space station is waiting for the mail to come at Christmastime.
- Rework of an old story where people are being arrested under mysterious circumstances and lied to about why they are being held. I love some of what I had going, but the ending was unsatisfactory.
- Four+ characters receive mysterious, personalized invitations to the old-fashioned carousel at the park. (I have this one planned and partially written from an old writing class. The teacher did not like my execution of it…)
- Dystopian girl who has some unique challenges in life takes a robotics internship to up her grade.
I finally got in the groove for writing yesterday (a little late, right?! XD 😛 ) and churned out the first chapter of Idea #4. Keyword: chapter. O.o. I planned for these to be short stories, and I’m not sure what I’m getting myself into. XD
This character, Blaise, is promising to be more interesting than I’d originally thought. I better find the rest of the plot soon. XD
While I hope to get to each of these ideas at least a little bit this month and make my 20k wordcount goal, I’m really excited just to be writing again. 😉
