What to Write…

So, I finally got through a book signing and a book club, and now I’m sitting here twiddling my thumbs, trying to figure out what to write next. And the problem isn’t finding ideas. It’s narrowing down the ideas. Let’s face it. I have a lot to say. And nobody wants to hear all of it. (Trust me…)

So here are a few of the ideas I’ve had bouncing around:

  • A poetry collection entitled “An Embarrassment of Pandas”
  • A book of funny stories entitled “I Get That Look a Lot”
  • A horror story about the colony of Roanoke
  • A series of steampunk fairy tales
  • A paranormal romance set in the fictional Confederate States, possibly involving demons
  • A self-help book
  • A vampire book, told backwards, with zombie potential
  • A lengthy essay entitled “How to Not Be a Jerk”

So far, I’m most inclined toward the lengthy essay… but that might just be because Facebook tends to induce ranting. Thoughts? ♦

  1. I like the two historical ideas, Roanoke and the fictional Confederacy. Of course that is like narrowing something down by saying, “Hmm I kind of like scary stories.”

    Roanoke could have died out from a vampire… probably too Salem’s Lot, but older.

    Or the village leaders made a deal with a devil to get through the winter and all deals with devils go bad. Remember they never found bodies, grave or such, the children could have over come the evil and joined the natives, a horror story with unusual heroes and a happy ending.

    Your fictional Confederacy would that be like the Confederacy survived the war or avoided it and is not modern or back in 1860’s?
