Well, it finally happened. I'm starting to get an idea forming for a new project. It's that nebulous feeling of ideas floating around in a vague soup that is at once enticing and frustrating. But I'm determined to leave the writing as late as possible this time. I want to get the plot worked out, the characters developed, the scenes sorted. In the past I've rushed in with just a vague idea and a mouthy cast of characters with their own ideas and no respect for their author's opinions. The result has been chaos and a lot of waste. I'm hoping to avoid that this time (!).
