So I got to about 1,700 words yesterday, reread what I’d written this morning, said “screw this crap” to it, deleted it, and am starting fresh. What genre will Claudia be writing in for this year’s NaNo?
Yeah, I know, what in the hell has gotten into me, right? I’m not a big sci-fi fan. I really only like Verne, Wells, and the awesome world that is Dune. I was going to really try to challenge myself and write some fantasy, but I’m not a mental masochist. Fantasy bugs the hell out of me.
This year’s plot is something I’ve kind of had in the back of my head for a year and a half or so. It was originally for my second short story for Intermediate Fiction back in spring 2009, but a (very long) discussion in which a plausible plot was developed led me to believe that it was far too complicated to be contained in 25 pages. So I guess it’ll be my NaNo.
Random aside, University of Pittsburgh, I found out, has a class on Leibniz. A WHOLE CLASS. I almost had a heart attack.
