New Project

Regular readers know that I also moonlight as a writer.  I’ve got a couple novel length projects, some shorter stuff, some kids stories.  None of them are ‘finished’, they all need some serious editing, but I’m getting better at it.

On writing s

Anyway, I finished a first draft of a novel last month and I’ve been kind of wishy washy over what I should do next.  I’m doing NaNoWriMo again this year, which starts in November.  According to the rules we’re supposed to start a new project on the first day and finish the draft by the end of the month, equaling 50K words.  I’ve done a couple before, they’re fun.

But the dilemma is, what do I do in the interim?  I don’t want to start some serious project that might not be done before NaNo, but I also don’t want to waste the time by not writing.

Today was one of my writing groups.  I didn’t have anything specific to work on so I just played around with one of my older ideas and actually got a lot of words in today.  Which will be a little amusing when you find out what it is.

It’s a weird project, completely unlike the stuff I normally do.  But that might be a good thing.  I was thinking that since it’s something I’d never publish under my own name, I might just publish it as Johnny Id.  It’s something ridiculous, dirty, crass, and a little sexy.  It’s something that I could link to here so that curious readers could check out some of my writing… even if it’s not the stuff I normally do.

Have I piqued your curiosity yet?

I told you it was weird.

It’s an Erotica-Noir-Satire about a sleazy private detective that gets drawn into all sorts of weird, sexy, and hopefully funny situations.  So, yes, today at writing group, in a crowded cafe, hunched over my laptop to block everyone’s view, I had a half woody and was writing crass erotica.  (Like I said, nothing I’d put up under my own name.  I can’t imagine the conversation if my mother ever found it.)  It was fun though and I got a few scenes written up.

I have to ask though, is that something that any of you would be interested in reading or should I not bother?  I’ve got the time to kill but if nobody would read it then I’ll find something else to work on.

  1. I’d have to read the first couple of paragraphs to see if I would read the rest of it…But what is so cool about this world that we live in is that everyone is so different. So if I don’t dig it, I know others will =)

    • Yeah, I kinda figure I’d have to actually put it out before getting any real opinions. Like I said, it’s weird. Fun, but weird. I think I’m just going to write it anyway, if nobody likes it oh well. 🙂
