I’m trying something new today. I’m not going to get my ass in a chair and sit at my laptop trying to write. I’m going to curl up on my couch with my new notebook (graph paper style, not lined!) and see what happens. I’m going to try to map out a plot, and at least develop the skeleton idea a little more.

I do have one problem, however. Recent events have really inspired me to write a totally different sort of book. More of a comedy, less of a “great work of literature” (or the amateur writer equivalent). So I’ve flipped the notebook and opened it from the back to form a double notebook, and I’ll try mapping things out for that, too. We’ll just have to see what comes of it.
