But, of course, just when I don't really want to write, an idea burns up my mind and refuses to let me forget about it.
This Shiny New Idea has been plaguing me since early November, when I thought of it five days into NaNo, when it was too late to switch ideas. And now that I'm not currently engaged to another book, it's screaming write me, write me! You've been planning characters and scenes out in your head for four months now and I'm literally too hot to handle so you just have to write me! I promise I'll be beautiful and powerful and oh so enticing to the publishing industry! Come on, just start me, I'll practically write myself!
It's so seductive.
I'm so, so excited to start it. But... it's screaming to be written in third person. Which I haven't written since I was thirteen.
Part of me is scared of leaving behind my first person default, but part of me is so desperate for some change in voice. Lately I've felt like I'm writing the same thing over and over. Change could be an awesome, amazing thing right now.
Oh, what the hell am I so worried about? I'm just going to go start the damn book! :)
