In a quick update to the post I made on Friday, I haven't heard back from the people at the writing competition but it's only been a few days since then, and so I wasn't really expecting anything. To be honest it was only being mentioned as a cunning plan to attempt to extend this a little bit. The English aren't evil; we're just crafty.
I like foxes.
Although I suppose the main point is also a bit of a continuation from that post. I mentioned that unfortunately I'm not much of an idea machine. I don't really get a ton of ideas. Kind of lamentable for a writer I know. I DID however get what I thought was a pretty decent idea in the last few days. I'm going to finish up Immortal Space before starting anything new though, don't worry. Sheesh I really want to get that done. Especially because I am getting close to the end. And I've been working on it for way too long. Then again I remember how long it took me to finally finish Tulips. I think that took about a year.
Of course that was partly down to insanity. Wheee.
This new idea means that all in all, I actually have a solid three ideas for what to do after I finish Immortal Space, which should see me going for a while. If we use my current output I should be finished with those ideas in about six years. Damn. Though of course I'm going to make sure that isn't the case. My new idea is a much more mainstream story, but I reckon I can pull it off. It's something I should be able to make a novella out of at least. If not a full length novel. Heck with the right kind of development I could probably make it a series. The same is true of Caspian actually. I guess when you think about it that idea was pretty mainstream too.
Dammit thinking about all these neat ideas I have makes me want to write more.
