Rogue Plot Bunny on the Loose
I'm knee-deep in world building for my current project and trying to be more organized about it, rather than flying by the seat of my pants like I normally do. I'm trying to make sure that all of the magic and mythology makes sense and is consistent throughout the story. This newfound organization makes for much slower writing than the previous effort, but I think that I'll reap the benefits down the road when it's time for editing. Or maybe it's just another form of proscrastination. That remains to be seen.
But, lately I have been sidetracked, distracted, call it whatever you want, by a story idea that's totally different from what I'm working on. I don't think it's enough to sustain a novel, at least not for me, but probably a nice tight short story or novella. So rather than ignoring this loud, obnoxious, yet beguiling plot bunny, I've decided to just write the darn thing so that it will leave me in peace.
Maybe I'll post it here once I've finished.
