Re-thinking ideas...

I've been doing some more thinking and planning and my original idea for GothNo is now going to be my project for NaNo. A paranormal romance/suspense.

This year, for GothNo, I'm going to write a 20K novella for the Creepy Comedy category, simply because I'll need something to keep me occupied on the long-haul flight back home and the thoughts of writing something amusing appeals to me big time!

Initial thoughts - a ghost with a sense of humour, and two troubled lovers...

GothNoWriMo 2009

If man were immortal he could be perfectly sure of seeing the day when everything in which he had trusted should betray his trust, and, in short, of coming eventually to hopeless misery. He would break down, at last, as every good fortune, as every dynasty, as every civilization does. In place of this we have death. ~Charles Sanders Peirce

It's coming to that time of year again when I dust off my Belladonna persona and start thinking about the 20K novella for the GothNoWriMo challenge.

An official trailer for New Moon and a quote I found (while searching for a new one for my sig) coupled with an experience I had at work some months ago are mingling together in a tantalising fashion that has my muse sitting up wide-eyed, contemplating the possibilities...

I'll let the pondering continue over the weekend and see what happens.
