"I wanna say all those things that would be better unsaid…"
– Trent Reznor
So, while it may not be cool or even smart to admit this – I'm scared!
Maybe the reason I've been dragging my heels on my NaNo project is that I'm afraid that writing so many shorts all at once will deplete my short story reserve and come November, I'll be all out of ideas.
Does anyone else have that fear? Wondering if the ideas will just stop coming one day? It's nice to have a notebook with scraps of ideas that one can "fall back on". For the longest time, my ideas have been lining up, patiently (for the most part) waiting for me to finish whichever WIP I happen to be devoting my time to for their chance to shine. But I guess I'm a little scared that this NaNo project could be the end.
Kind of like the Millennium…I won't know until December 1st whether there will be any fallout or not.
