It’s Spring Break! Time to get crazy!
Just kidding, I’m a mom.
So… a few months after I finished Starting From Scratch, I got this idea for another story that I wanted to write, but I was somewhere in my second semester of school, taking two classes, and I kept starting and stopping and then finally just trying to cobble some notes together so that if I decided to get serious about writing the story I could be super organized about it… and then the sleeplessness started.
Oh, the ideas. They just would not quit. I knew I had to get this story out or it would just keep bugging me.
For Mother’s Day, my super-awesome-thoughtful husband got me this novel planner. It was just what I needed to help me get my story organized. I mapped everything out. And I told myself that I would do my own NaNoWriMo in June. I would give myself some time off once classes ended in May, and then I’d get to work. I was taking a class over the summer, and we were traveling, but I wanted to see if I could bang the story out in like a month because it had been on my mind for so long.
I finished it on August 3, 2018.
And I’ve sat on it ever since. Haven’t reread it. I figured I would get around to editing it this summer.
EXCEPT… I decided to use it as the basis for the TV series I’m writing about in my TV class. I only have to write the script for the show’s pilot, but I started thinking…
If this was an actual TV show, what would it look like? What else would happen? How could I keep this story going?
And, oh my God, I haven’t slept right since the semester started.
Okay, that could maybe be the hormones or stress talking, but seriously… I try to go to sleep and think up some other new plot twist or story line every night. The rewrites on this story are going to be nuts. I have pages and pages of notes and ideas. So many ideas. I can’t freaking wait to get started!
And on top of that… I have a series coming to Channillo soon!
And there’s school stuff, of course.
It’s going to be a crazy spring break!
And by that, I mean… I’m going to be writing like crazy!
