Every so often, I’ll have an idea for a story. This has been happening since long before I wrote. The ideas usually come right before bed or as soon as I wake up. I think it’s because that’s when I’m not busy with everything that normally occupies my mind. Unfortunately, it’s been a while since I’ve had a new story idea, but I had one this morning.
This morning I woke up with an idea so creepy and bizarre that I started writing right away. I’ve never really done creepy before. I’ve done adventure, romance, comedy, drama, but nothing that really gives people nightmares. I don’t know if I’m capable of giving people nightmares. (Side note: If you’ve ever had a nightmare after reading something I wrote, I’d love to know in the comments.) I like a challenge, but this is something else.
Another issue is that I only have a scene, a piece of the entire story—and I’m sure there’s enough for a novel if I dig deep. Still, it’s only the first day. Like most of my stories, this probably won’t get past five chapters. But if it does reach six, I’ll finish the whole thing.
You’re probably curious to know what story I’ve got in my head. Well, you’ll find out eventually.
