I haven't talked about my novel yet, have I?
Well, bascially, I've had two decent ideas lately. Both of them are based on weird dreams I've had. Actually, those two dreams happened only a couple of days apart from each other.
Both times, when I woke up, I desperately tried to cling to the fragments I remnembered and somehow managed to turn them into scenarios that other people might be able to udnerstand.
The first one: "Mizubito". It is a sci fi kinda thing. Pretty psychological, I guess.
Unfortunately, I can't say anything more about it, since even translating the title would be one hell of a spoiler.
Also, I don't really have concrete characters, just a vague plot and a (at least to me) very gripping scenario.
On the other hand, I'd probably be able to squeeze lots of words out of it since it's still rather shapeless so I can stuff things in everywhere.
The second one originally looked more like a short story thing to me. The tentative title is "The Place Behind". It's a dark fantasy story with an atmosphere so tight, it's almost too much.
For this, I actually have at least three main characters more or less fleshed out. I even did some research on the names so they make some sense (but certainly not at first glance, I'm not going Mary Sue here *lol*).
But like I said, at first, this didn't feel like an idea big enough for a novel. At all. However, I'm just to terribly attached to the whole thing that I might be able to expand it to something longer. Also, since I plan to go all out on descriptions and flashbacks... who knows? Maybe it'll work.
So, yeah... For now, "The Place Behind" it is.
By the way, they're both original stories. No idea why I keep having inspirations for things that are not fan fiction, but who cares? As long as it's
