A Writer's Journey

A Wealth of Ideas

It seems odd to complain that I have way too many ideas. I know there are writers out there who would love to have this problem. I know I have had some times where I wish I had this problem again.

I am still working on my novel. However, I got another idea a week or so ago. It didn’t just come to me, though.

I suffer from insomnia. Always have, but I’ve probably mentioned that already. So, I’ve come up with little tricks to try and put myself to sleep. I can’t read as that just wakes me up more—it’s always just one page more or one chapter more. I do listen to music, usually Broadway shows. I also come up with little stories in my head to help me fall asleep. Nothing much, they didn’t have to make much sense nor did the characters have to be fleshed out. They were just little stories to send me to Slumberland. However, some of them tend to repeat.

And those are the ones I pay attention to. The basic plot usually remains the same, but certain aspects change. Character names, relationships, personalities—all have changed over time. But as I said, I never really thought these out. But there was one I did. So much so, I rolled over and found a partially used notebook. And I started to write it.

Unlike my other novel, I actually had a title. I will reveal it’s called “The Wedding Game.” Don’t judge a story by it’s title though. It sounds like a chick lit story you’d see with the bright colors and titles written in a script font. This isn’t it. It’s another historical fiction-esque story. This one I’m not going to type up just yet.

I guess I’m now in a race. Which will be completed first? “Through the Mists”? Or “The Wedding Game”?

I guess only time will tell.
