I Wanna Write

I’ve topped 30,000 words in NaNoWriMo, and although the words are flowing fairly well at this point, I still have the problem of other stories roaming free in my head, wanting me to write them.

I’m going to dump them here, and see if they will stay put and wait until I’m done with my WIP.

I love writing about Kingdom Come. The dynamics of a closed, committed group marriage allow for all kinds of interesting twists and plots. Here’s a few I like…

Louisa’s Story

A woman is struck by a serious MS-like disease just a few months before her wedding. One spouse backs out, but her four remaining fiances stay by her side. A couple of years into their marriage, she is growing more and more resentful of her condition, hating being the invalid who always needs someone to take care of her. In spite of all reassurances, she feels like a burden. The arrival of their first child brings all kinds of new stresses to the marriage. Is she still loved? Can she accept the love her spouses show her, even though she doesn’t love herself?

Reconciliation

A husband and wife mourn the death of their spouses. After forty years of marriage, they find themselves with only each other. Somewhere in the last twenty years, the two of them had simply drifted apart, content to feel married to the spouses who were now lost, while all but ignoring each other. Can lost love be found again when you feel like you’re just going through the motions? Can you learn to appreciate someone who leaves their dirty socks next to the hamper, or refuses to admit they snore?

The Bard and the Muse

OK, no idea what it would be about. Maybe not even a Kingdom Come novel. But it sounds cool…
