“There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they’ll take you.”
That quote is attributed to Beatrix Potter (though it’s very possible that it might just be from the film Miss Potter). It’s a lovely quote and relevant to what I’m doing today. I am starting a new story today.
Before anyone starts asking what it’s about, there’s something you should know. I will not be saying much about my stories on Spiral-Bound. I have learned, the hard way, that if I talk about my stories too much, I lose interest. And there’s little worse than losing interest in a perfectly good story. Trust that I will slip hints when I think “safe”, but beyond that, I’m afraid you will just have to wait until at least the first draft is done.
Back to the point. I’m excited about this new story. I plan for it to be a novel, YA, and I have been playing matchmaker for my two MCs forever (at least, since I came up with them about a year ago when they were going to be in a different story). And that is quite enough information for now, I think.
Oddly enough, I’ve had the main plot circumnavigating my mind for only a few days. I came up with it on Friday. While eating Dipping Dots. On a shopping trip with my aunt. (I will never have a good answer for “Where do you get your ideas?”.)
This is turning out to be a scatterbrained post… So. That’s it, for now.
