Crazy

I am crazy.

No, really, I am. As if doing nanowrimo itself wasn't crazy enough I want to write two books within that thirty day time frame. Two. Books. . . .Two. In thirty. Days. *Terrified Shriek* Why do I have to do this to myself? I mean, I know I don't have to write two of them but it just sounds like a new challenge! Interesting and twice as hard! I could write one after the other or work on both at the same time, which, according to some people is easier because if you get bored with one book you work on the other. Sooooo. . . What should I do? Should I try it? I mean seriously, in the last two or three days I have come up with. . . Four (FOUR!) ideas! Three of which are already decently formed ideas with their different worlds already very distinct in my mind and their different plots taking shape. One of these three ideas may actually be a reincarnation of an older story that I gave up on but it now has what it didn't have before: an actual plot! And then I have the Chronicles of Siron on top of these new ideas *mumblegrumble* Here, I'll give a quick summary of my three new ideas (please don't take them) and probably the Chronicles too (don't take that either).

#1

In the near future it is manditory for every person to have a chip put in them at birth. These chips are used for transactions of any kind as well as information about you, etc. It's illigal not to have them. What they don't tell everyone is that you can be tracked with them and they can also kill you. There is an underground group that is utterly against these chips and are often causing the government great trouble and they are trying to get people to believe that the government has the absolute power to kill them, this group wishes to start a revolution. The leader of the underground group is one of the people who helped create the chip.

(If you know what's on page 1,001 of the health care, you know how this idea came about >.>)

Earth is not the only world in existence, the problem is they don't know that. Yet.

There are many worlds, many different planets and earth does not know because they have been 'protected' from knowing of the other planets and lifeforms because of their inability to perform certain abilities. Namely magic. But in a time of war the leaders of each planet have decided that it is time to let the humans know, to let earth realize that they aren't the only ones. Because during this war they can't protect them any longer and they are running out of soldiers so they wish to recruit humans for their own battle as well.

And on earth, there will come a day when hundreds of planets suddenly appear all over their solar system.

(This idea is still very subjective on certain parts but this is the main deal)


#3

A journalist who decides to travel with some one trying to do something (i.e. searching for something/going after someone/travelling to a place no one goes) so he can write up the great article. But he gets more than what he bargained for, when the person he's accompanying ends up discovering major things and everything takes a nose dive as they travel through dangers and peril into the unknown and the very brink of death.

And the journalist? Well, he was there to write about all of it.

(This would be coming from the journalists POV, of course.)


The Chronicle of Siron

In the world of Ailon a young mage, Siron, discovers his magical abilities and travels to the islands to be taught in the ways of magic. Another better learned mage travels with him fortunately, as dark shadows seem to be tailing them on their journey to the islands. They whisper to Siron, tempt him. . . And he soon wonders if he should join them.

(That's the main thing of it but there's a lot more that goes on. I'm afraid if I try to sum it all up here this post will become very, very long)


So, what do you think? The Chronicles of Siron is definitely getting written but what of the other three? I love them all and I want to write! Actually, I want to start writing now so I'm wondering if I should start writing one of them now to pass the time. . . If you can, please comment with your thoughts!


In case you don't know, on twitter NaNoWordSprints is doing sprints every evening (I think) and they'll be doing sprints all day saturday. Join them if you can! I haven't yet because I can't decide if I should start writing something now.


Oh! There's this cool website I recently found called TV Tropes that I find both mildly funny and partially helpful. Especially the Applied Phlebotinum. You guys should check out that website!


Anyway, I think this post is more than long enough, so I shall end it here.

Best writing!

I like the first one the most. Then again I'm fond of science fiction.

That ones the reincarnation of my old idea! It's weird cause I've been coming up with a few science fiction ideas and I read little to no sci-fi at all (Uglies trilogy comes to mind).
