Mortal Kombat!

You know, the video game. It was all the hype when I was growing up, so let's just say I played a lot of it. Not that that's happening now. I've progressed to more evolved games. Such as writing. So, here's the problem:

I know I've been bragging in previous posts about my trying NaNo again this year. I also mentioned that I had the story idea for another paranormal romance that involved epic battles, smothering romances and unbelievable twists. Well, the problem is that, while I was planning this masterpiece, some other idea knocked me over the head.

For a couple of years, I've drawn up a spin-off after my YA series which was a sort of a fantasy-romance. I started writing it ON A NOTEBOOK with a PENCIL, but it never saw the light of my computer. Also, it sucks badly, since I wrote it before I actually learned how to write, and I only made it to like chapter 3, but now it hit me and it doesn't want to go away.

So I have no idea which project to tackle this November. Should I go with my original thought of good versus evil versus third party, or sink into the slushy romance of a time-traveling, very confused person who tires to find the meaning of life? Argh! I can't make up my damn mind.

So, I'm not sure what to do, if I should step out of my comfort zone. Anyone else ever had this problem?


  1. not sure if you have ever finished NaNo before, but maybe comfort zone might be easiest for such a big task? ;)

  2. I vote to write the one you're most excited about. Excitement always speeds things up as you're writing...

  3. Can't advise you on which to choose, but I think Lindsey nailed it - write what excites you.

    I have been in this kind of situation though, not knowing where to turn next. In fact I keep returning to this state of indecision. I call it "wipdithering".


Show me the love :)
