My problem is that I have too many ideas and not nearly enough time to write everything. I was hoping to get eight books out this year, but it looks like I’ll only have seven, maybe even six.
I get why writers hire ghostwriters. They have a ton of ideas in their heads and not enough time to write them all. Today I was watching the movie “Mirror, Mirror”. I don’t know if anyone saw it, but I rented it because it looked like it would be a fresh take off of “Snow White”. I don’t know why, but I thought it would end up with the queen turning into the good guy. Then I thought, “I’d love to write a book where the queen was misunderstood and ended up with the prince who was older than he was in the Disney movie.” Then I came back to reality and reminded myself that I can’t write this story because I’m already booked up on more story ideas than I’ll ever write.
I’d love to write everything that’s up in my head. I really would. But 80% of my ideas end up in the “never” pile because there’s not enough time in the day, and even though I write as fast as I can while trying to make each story the best it can be, I know I’ll never get to write everything I want. So I have to pick and choose, which isn’t easy but necessary.
*sigh* It’s so frustrating. I just know that idea for a different viewpoint on Snow White could be a great story.
And yes, I know I need to make a post where Dave Larson gets on the witness stand, but my mind is blank so I have no idea on how to handle it. I keep hoping inspiration will strike, but so far I can’t get anywhere. I’m tempted to have him take the 5th and not say anything on the witness stand. Is that a tacky way out?
Okay. I’m going to see if I can get anything written. Today hasn’t been a good one at all for creativity, minus the idea for a twist on Snow White. LOL
