What Am I Doing?

What am I doing? Wracking my brain for an idea for Nanowrimo. Do I want to write fantasy? Another science fiction based on an existing character? An alternate reality? Try my hand at suspense or even — gulp — historical?

Maybe I’ll simply use the writing.com story app and see what it gives me.

I know what I really need to do: Stop worrying. The more I fret over whether or not I can come up with a story, the less likely I’ll come up with one.

After all, my first novel began with a single word: Redemption.

My second was based on a simple theme: the importance of duty.

Oh! I know! You can help me. Give me a word or theme, and I’ll write a book based on it. Sorry, no prizes. On second thought, if I succeed I’ll send you a copy of the finished book. Eiither electronic or hardcopy I haven’t decided yet (after all the idea is less than a minute old). Sound like a deal?
