One day I'll be a magnificent butterfly
I'm having trouble deciding what story to work on for NaNoWriMo this November or if I should come up with a new idea entirely. So, to help myself, I made a list.
Projects in the works:
The Letters of Tray and Seine: A fantasy world falling apart and the letters exchanged between two brothers trying to save it and themselves.
I finally picked this back up and was really, really shocked by how well-written it is. ^^ That's not me bragging. That's just me going swirly-eyed over the little ninth-grade writer I somehow used to be. It's really one of the very few stories worth continuing. But it's one of those stories I need to be well-written to begin with, so I want to write it piecemeal and not all at once.
A Family Crisis: Having recently discovered his sexuality, Jacob has been waiting for the "right time" to disclose the news to his parents. His strict Catholic mom blows his plan when she catches him kissing his boyfriend one afternoon. Family crisis to follow.
This was a new idea from mid-June or so, and I've already done all of the preparatory work (character profiling, outlining, whatnot), but it won't even come close to the 50,000 word minimum.
On the Edge of Kyoto: RuroKen fanfic. Kenshin the assassin and Kaoru the prostitute meet on the edge of Kyoto. Thrown together at the closing of an era and the beginning of a darker one, they learn too much about each other and about the encroaching chaos that threatens to tip their precariously balanced lives over the edge.
Technically, according to my life-plan, I'm supposed to have already finished this one already, but Junior year did not go as expected. Not that I ever follow my plans, unfortunately. So, this would be a perfect story to work on in one month's time, but a problem remains: I have zero plot. And since I take forever to come up with a decent plotline considering my limited imagination, I'm nervous.
Since I've already put those three up, I might as well continue. But those three are currently the only candidates for NaNoWriMo.
