Some Honest Thoughts.
In response to yesterday's Ten Things Challenge, a few of my fabulous web-pals commented on the story potential in what I shall know refer to as the Formula #9 Project. No, I had never thought about writing a story involving a losery, friendless, violin-playing booknerd who moves across the country and turns her life around. Here's why. Real life seems ordinary and unstoryable to me, (Sesquipedalian, is there a footnote for that one?). I like reading and writing about magic and powers. So initially my reaction to everyone's comments was a big whopping, "El. Oh. El. Not likely peeps." But. I suppose I should keep a level head about everything. I mean, what happens if my current love-in-progress doesn't work out? A girl has to keep her options open. I'm not getting any younger, after all, and as great as things are going with loverstory right now, what about the future? Will we be able to go the distance? Will I still be in love through revisions, queries, the good times and bad? Who's to say? I'm not saying I'll cheat, I won't! I'm just saying your comments have made me think for a second. And my thoughts are, maybe it doesn't always have to be about magic. Maybe.
