The idea of a new novel came to me today while I was trying to clean up for company. As I moved things to the corner and swept the floor, I started thinking about what would happen if a sailboat got caught in the open ocean by a hurricane. Then I decided to make it worse for the poor hapless souls on the boat. Add some drama at home, throw in a rebellious kid, a convict, bad weather and voila…new novel.
I have written the first one thousand words of it. Given that Nanowrimo challenge of writing a novel in thirty days is upcoming, I should be able to finish it (hopefully). This is my favorite part of writing. Generating ideas. These poor sods have no idea what I am going to drop in their laps. I have already written out my outline and hope to flesh it out some. Take care and chat soon.
