So I’ve reached the end of the third week of my 100 w/d challenge and it was a lot of fun. I feel like I’m settling into a nice rhythm.
The funny, and kind of scary thing, about week 3 was a nice little journey into an idea vortex. It started with my sitting down for some more world-building and within seconds a great swirl of ideas appeared.
Normally I like this kind of creation, but when the swirl began to spin and got faster and faster, ideas began to be forcibly sucked out of my head and I started to worry.
Not, you understand, because of fear of running out or that those liberated would fly away into the ether. No, I was worried because every one of those ideas will at some point have to be either used or discarded. And there were just too many of them!
For now I am capturing all of them and hoping that they won’t gang up on me to turn my novel into something unrecognisable. Still, it’s a nice problem to have.
