After just grousing about not having any new ideas, one dropped out of the sky and whanged me upside the head. And when I thought it through, I could amalgamate another story idea I've had hanging around for a while with it.
So I think I'm going to be starting a new book soon. And it's going to be far more complicated than anything I've ever written before. Or at least, I think it's going to be complicated. I have so little idea of the actual details of the plot at this stage, I really don't know what might happen.
I have two awesome characters. And I know a lot more about one than the other. And I know how they are going to react to one another, and that there will be a huge, tragic moment toward the end. But the finer details I'll need to discover as I go along.
I keep thinking I'll start today, but I feel like I need to think about it all longer so maybe those fine details might filter through into my brain. But then I also have my characters' voices in my head, ready to start telling their story.
Should I let the story settle, or just write and find it?
