I finished it! I finished my restructure and printing of Reapers! It clocked in at just under 60,000 words, and I’ve taken the last three days to do nothing. Well, I did do some stuff, but I didn’t write a word. While that’s all fine and dandy, now I want to start writing again.
So! I’ve been scouring my idea-notebook and idea-board on Pinterest. There were a few pins and things that got me to thinking (I’ve currently got eight tabs open), but then I looked through my notebook again. And I found it.
Some of you may watch as much TV as I do-I’m currently catching up on Teen Wolf because, once again, I was late to the party on that show. In Season 3 there was an episode where the lacrosse team had to stay at a hotel for the night. The last scene of the episode is the bus pulling out onto the highway, and there’s this song playing. I had to look it up, I couldn’t help myself. The song was called Sleep Paralysis and it’s by Gabriel Bruce. There were a few lines of lyrics that I liked-liked enough to write them down. I saw the lyrics in my book, and then I saw the pin. The Pin, y’all.
And that’s how I partially figured out what I’m going to writing next. At the moment, I’m calling it Wink. It’ll probably change down the road, but for now it’s good. I only have two writing buddies on the NaNoWriMo site, so if any of you want to find me, the name is the same as it is here- OneOfNyn! I hope to see you guys there!
