Its been an awesome, overwhelming response of support that I have received regarding finishing my first full novel. The edits for the first 15 pages have begun, the toil is heating up to clean it up for Genesis, ACFW's annual contest.
I've been thinking as I finish this, where to go from here. I mean, my idea for the post apocolyptic science fiction story REMNANTS is "half a novel", so I thought about finishing it. Then a new story entered my life this weekend. I felt like a baby was born. LOL
A new story is so thrilling, is it not? I wonder, how do you choose what new tale to start? A dream? A thousand stories bouncing around in your mind that you don't much have to think of a new one as much as choose one from your story file in your head?
I only have a couple stories surfing through my mind at a time. One of my short stories came from a dream. One idea bloomed as I listened to a SKILLET song (I think they need to make it their video LOL) And this last/first novel COBRA CUTLASS began with a challenge over at BRANDON BARR'S BLOG, CHRISTIAN SCIENCE FICTION.
So tell me. How are your stories born?
