Stories Revisited

Since my son is occupying himself with tossing all my books off a bookshelf, I decided to write a quick entry.

in 2007, I participated in and won Nanowrimo (national novel writing month) with my first effort at a fantasy. The story began okay, I loved the characters, but it ended up darker than I originally intended.

After I reached 50,000 words, I set it aside with the intent to revisit it sometime — or delete it.

That sometime was today as my son napped earlier this afternoon. I feared I did delete it, but I found it after some searching. I still like the overall story, and am still in love with the characters. The trick will be either placing the same characters in a different world or circumstance.

Those are my thoughts this Sunday evening.

What’s on your mind?
