Day Thirteen of Thirty (nonconsecutive) Days of Writing – the gore edition

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. — Anais Nin

Mood is vastly better today than it was yesterday. Not sure what the trick was, but something happened, rotated and clicked into place and I woke up feeling much more positive and upbeat.

I like feeling like that, especially when I was up until one a.m. unable to sleep. Did the smart thing. Instead of tossing and turning in the bed and wishing sleep would finally come, I jumped up, pushed in some episodes of Spartacus: Blood and Sand and watched the blood, gore, sex and political machinations of twisted people. Good times, good times.

Then I had an idea for a story. They say nothing is really original, that our ideas are riffs off of other ideas and this pretty much proves it.

Spartacus in Space. Yeah, I know it’s not new.  The point is to make it unique and original? Looks like I have a new project to develop.

…hey, I think I just came up with an idea to serialize! Thanks wordpress and blog-type people, having you as a sounding board really helps. It will require some serious research considering this is a time era I’m not familiar with but I’ve never shied away from rolling up my sleeves before and starting something that I have no earthly idea on how to start.

Pretty chuffed now.

Anyway, Day Thirteen! Read the rest of this entry »
