The Novel Scrapyard

Remember how I couldn’t find my notebook and I was really upset?  Well, I’m over that.

I’m over it in the sense that I completed scrapped that version.  It was a hard thing to do because it was the first time any of my stories were going somewhere, but I eventually realized that I had all these big ideas in my head, but they didn’t have a common denominator.  They couldn’t connect to each other because they weren’t connected to the same overall picture in the story.

This is probably due to the fact that I was trying to make everything up in my head so I wouldn’t have to worry about whether I was copying anything else.  For me, it’s much easier if something is rooted in reality and all I have to do is make up a new adventure.  That’s why I like fanfiction so much.  I can use characters that have already been established and make something new.

My new story – or idea, rather – will have some of the same characters, but it’s a completely different plot.  Not trying to toot my own horn, but it’s pretty good if I do say so myself.
