So, I had this idea that I mentioned in a post on my Crafty blog and it has embedded itself in my mind, and the more I think about it, the more I love it so I want to share it here as well (cuz I get more traffic here) and see what you all think about it.
A Serial novel.
People used to do it ALL the time back in the day in the newspaper.
Its where you post a chapter or something of that sort, to a novel every week.
And I think it would be WAY fun for me to do on my crafty blog (sarahscreaticebrain.blogspot.com). In fact, I would LOVE to do it. As long as we all understand the fact that it would probably be very unedited and such. But then again, that gives ME a chance to get some feed back which would be GREAT for me, especially since this would be a for fun and entertainment project, and not something that is my lifes work really. And it would get me writing more, and out of the box which are also all good things.
here is my problem.
What do I write about?
This is actually my biggest dilemma when I come down to ANY writing project. I LOVE to write, and I have story ideas bouncing everywhere every few weeks that I write on. Some of them are serious, some of them are not more than a few chapters. My problem is however, is what I usually love to write, is really not in the... normal vein of current fiction.
I really write things that you would expect to turn into an Amanada Bynes movie some day. Young, clean, I think they are funny, and a little sappy. But they are AWESOME fun for me to write.
But with THIS blog/serial project thing, I want to write something that people want to READ. That's the point right? And I think that writing something that may be out of my norm may be good for me. Help me grow.
So this is where I open this up to you. I want to write a serial novel for my creative blog over the summer. I think it will be SUPER fun. BUT- I need YOU to tell me what sort of thing you want to read. No, you don't have to write out a script or even a full fleshed idea though you ARE welcome too. I just want to know- right now- if you were going to pick up a book- what do you want to find in it? Vampires? Hot super men? Mystery? Action? Myth? Something in a historical setting? Something super thought provoking? A young hero? A heroine? First person, third person? Give me some ideas and some insight, and we will make this thing happen!
Note- there will have to be romance in it, even if it is just a TINY bit. I can't live without writing my romance :)
