The report on NaMoWriMo 2017 for the first week is “as expected”. The story has been “mostly” laid out.
Two surprises happened during this process.
- I thought of another book on the same subject.
- I discovered this book was a romance rather than whatever I thought it was going to be.
The Other Book
It’s always nice when serendipity comes to visit and this was a great present. It’s on the same general theme – Merlin and Magic – and the general concept/theme has been dropped into a new Scrivener project for development.
One of those writing mysteries is about how ideas flow – whether they’re always there in the ether waiting for an open mind or whether that open mind somehow conjures up the idea.
