I've had another story idea.
If you know me very well at all, you know that this is practically a weekly occurrence. At times its to where I'll announce that I have a new story idea and everyone cringes and groans. Again?!
Yes. I'm serious. I'm really that bad.
Someone even went as far as to threaten to hack into my docs. and delete everything except the stories she...erm, they want to read. O.O WUT.
But sometimes I just can't help it. The stories flit and flutter through my mind and I have to write them down. It's what I do. Why I write. Who I am, even.
Then when I saw about this awesome-sounding upcoming contest hosted by Rachelle at The Ink Loft, it all began again.
My brain is whirling...
I grin at random times (okay, I do that anyway. But it's happening more.) as a sudden inspiration reveals itself to me...
I'm staying up late googling name meanings for the characters...
And it's such a glorious feeling. To know I'm crafting a story out of nothing, making something (hopefully) beautiful and allegoric (yes, I'm attempting an allegory).
So far all I know about this story is the main theme, and I'm debating over a few possibilities for the main characters names. There will be lots of hurt and sadness, but also the all-powerful light of God's almighty love. <3
Ready for a sneak-peek? Here ya go. :)
God's light shines the brightest in the darkest places.
Nope, I didn't come up with that one. Bob Smiley did, but I'm borrowing it. :P
What do ya think? Will you be entering this delightful contest as well? How do you plot stories? And... It's late and I have writing to do, so I'll see y'all later. ;)
