Today I wrote 354 words (total 2,133). As I think I said, I’m starting a new story, a new book idea, and I’m unsure of…well pretty much everything about it.
The origin of this book idea was…oh, a year ago? Two?
Apparently it was over three years ago, June 2015. Strewth.
Anyway (without giving anything away) the idea came from from a random word generated prompt given by Chuck Wendig. There was a site, you clicked the button and it pumped out a random few words. Boom. Story idea said Chuck. 2000 words of flash fiction. So I clicked the button. The site gave me my words:
Bugger me but this was a great prompt.
I never actually wrote the flash fiction, but the core story idea has gurgled in the back of my head like a backed up septic tank now for 3 years, and I figure I’ve got to either get a plunger to drag the blockage out, or flush my fat head down with to finally stop the noise.
So here we are, plunging away. Back at ‘Pussy Alternator’ (of course this is the placeholder name for my story), and planning to build a 90,000 word book around a dumb idea I got from a random site 3 years ago.
Ever had a story idea that’s taken a while to rise, to bake, to brew to completion? If you’re interested, here is the link to the prompt page: http://watchout4snakes.com/wo4snakes/Random/RandomPhrase give it a hit and let me know what comes up!
This is the best site ever.
