So, as most of you would have learned yesterday, I plan to take a week away from everything and live as a writer. I'm going to do as much writing as I can, and so I'm taking myself away from all distractions such as blogging. There's one thing about this though, as brilliant a writer as I am, and lets face it I am, I'm still not very good at the whole concepts thing. I get random inspiration, and I can add to already existing work, but original ideas themselves are sadly not my forte. I don't know how well known it is but the concept for Immortal Space was actually thought up by you guys. It's kind of a shame that only a few people who were around when I started that are still around. I have come up with original ideas of course. When I had to do the 100 word stories and such, and I do plan on expanding upon my already created work, but this is your chance to get involved.
If you can think of any plausible ideas that you would like me to do, then now is your chance to say so. Of course, I will aim to give you as much accreditation as possible in what I hope will be the final outcome of everything; a collection of short stories. So far I have two actual short stories that I plan to expand upon and make longer. That of Tulips, the 250 word flash fiction I wrote (which is now over ten times as long, and still only half way in really) and the as of untitled story I wrote that Aysh used as a guest post. It's called Fate on my computer, but I don't really like that title. I can use the stories themselves as a middle ground, and it's going to be easier with Fate. That was already over 1000 words long. It's not like I have to massively expand upon it. I really like the ideas that I have for those two pieces, but that's still only two pieces. I can expand upon a few of the themes explored in my poetry, and use them as inspiration, but even then that's only a few stories at most, and of questionable quality.
So, like I said, this is your chance to get involved. Throw some ideas at me, and let's see what sticks. Or, if you want to test my flash fiction abilities, then feel free to just throw a picture my way. Anything really is acceptable. If I can make it work, I can and will make it work. I'm fucking awesome, and she's a screamer.
By the way if you saw my joke on Twitter that awesome is kinky then that's the joke I originally wanted to make but that tweet was also going to my Facebook, and I have young relatives on there. Yet I still included the word "fucking"...I'm a terrible influence.
Also, mentioning flash fiction has reminded me of the little piece I wrote on the way to my holiday, so that is three ideas. Originally I was planning on ten five thousand word stories, or 50,000 words in total, but I think I will accept 30,000 words in total. Or eight 5000 word stories. I'm flexible on that too, I don't want every story to be exactly 5000 words but that's what I'm going to aim for. I can write roughly 1000 words an hour so if I can really get the inspiration bug then I can complete one story a day and be done by the end of the week. Then I'll need to understand how to format it and submit it to Amazon or somewhere for publication, and then pray to God they decide to publish it. Oh God I've just realised they can deny publishing it. Ohgodohgodohgodohgodwhatdoidothenohgod.
Minor freak out occurring, continue with your day.
