Alternate universes


The muse is absolutely screaming at me to work on an alternate universe story I’ve had in my head for the last week. When it screams this loud, I start talking out loud to myself in the car on the way to work. Usually, I also record it so I remember all the ideas and lines for later.

Today I’m trying to write down the outline that I have recorded and flesh out details. With a sleeping baby on my lap. I hate how slow one-handed typing is (especially given I do around 90-100 wpm usually). Fortunately we have friends coming over to play D&D with my husband, so they’ll take the baby for a while.

I need to make myself some sort of template in Excel for keeping up with character traits too. One of the reasons I haven’t gone back to finish my other WIP is because I don’t remember the details I wrote previously about the characters. Then again, I realize how uninspired that story is now, and how poorly written it is, and I’m not sure I’ll go back to it without some significant re-working in mind. In the future.

P.S. This has nothing to do with the blurb from the previous post.
