Writing...

I've been inspired to write again. Not just a little short story or poem or blog entry, but another novel. Let me tell you, it's been YEARS since I've really felt this bout of inspiration strike. The last novel I wrote was back in high school, and it is one I will likely never see again due to letting someone who is no longer a part of my life take it to read it. This will teach me to not make copies. ;)

This novel is not at all in the same genre as that last one. In fact, this is no mere novel at all that I've been inspired to write. I have so many ideas running through my head that I can foresee this becoming a trilogy. It has to do with the strange world that was "created" in my marriage, but with my own creative flair brought in. Some of the character aspects will change, as will many of the original stories to better fit in with the world I'm creating. It'll be a fantasy/science fiction sort of tale, which was NEVER what I envisioned myself writing. I always hoped to one day craft my stories more in the vein of mystery writer Mary Higgins Clark, however, I just do not have her flair for writing mysterys. This story is just bursting out of me though. And I think with enough time and effort put into it, I will eventually have something that may be worthy of publishing.

My main focus will be on the strong female character I've created and added to the mix. I've been doing a lot of character development particularly with her over the past few weeks, without much idea of what I wanted to do with her. It was just like her character was speaking to me and demanding to be known. It was only last night that it started to take on the shape of a real story. I had some ideas before then, and had originally just planned to focus the story solely around her, but then I felt I needed that strong male lead to really add to it. And then, it just kind of formed into 2 stories... The third story(or in reality the second of the trilogy) is going to take some brainstorming, although I have a good idea of what I think it'll center around.

Anyway, I'm hoping to really start working on it once this class ends and try to work on it as much as possible throughout the semesters, but mainly on breaks. I know that it will likely take me a LONG time to get even just the first book finished, but I'm looking forward to starting it. I think I'll have to use some of the discipline I've learned with doing schoolwork on weeknights and not seeing people during the semester like I did spring and summer semesters to set aside time daily, or at least regular times each week to write. I'm sure at some point I'll just write as creativity strikes, but I seem to do well under some form of structure. We'll see.

I'm excited though, and may share some of what I write on here for commentary and the like. I'm not really planning to set it up for publishing, but if it ends up being something that might be worthy of trying for, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. For now, like my other two novels, it's just for fun and for me to share my writing with friends and family. :)
