The beginning - something happens
Something else happens
You know that sort of thing - unfortunately I can't remember where I read it.
So if you recently blogged about this... or read it and acutally remember where you read it... do let me know in the comments. Leave me a link or a hint... and I will go and check to see if it is the same blog post.
Anyway back to me and my changeable mind. So I did the above exercise for the Steampunk idea and still ended up with the beginning, the end and nothing in the middle.
So then I tried it with the paranormal urban fantasy idea that I had which is vaguely similar to last year's NaNoWriMo but not - I'm using some of the same character names and there is a minor similarity in one aspect but I would be rewriting the entire thing from scratch.
Believe me my NaNo 2011 is appalling - the ending is almost vomit inducing - they more or less walk off in to the sunset together... well it was actually the sunrise.
But anyway when I did the above exercise with the paranormal UF idea I only had one question mark left. Although I don't know all the details I thought it would be the better choice. The Steampunk can wait until I have more of a plot.
