I’m so excited today. My book idea is finally coming together. I think I’ve finally found “The Book” to write. I’ve been researching since I got home yesterday and have found lots of info on my topic. My only issue about my book is that it may only appeal to a certain “type” of reader. It is based on a folktale in the Bayous of Louisiana, but the folk tale is known around the world and in every culture, so it would appeal to readers around the world, but only in one aspect of those who love the supernatural and mystery. It will also incorporate another story into it that is a childhood favorite – “The Three Little Pigs”. I know it seems a bit odd three pigs and a wolf for a novel, but I think I may be able to put a new spin on it. I’m not going to let that stop me though. I’m still going to write the book and try to get it published.
The Loup-Garou is known around the world. He/She has many names and varies depending on the culture. This is my legend, my book, my goal to write a story that will blow readers away (fingers crossed). I have it all pictured in my head and a lot of it written down on paper and in MS Word. I love it when I have a great idea that I can see going all the way and not hitting a 100 foot wall like my YA novel. I don’t think I’ve ever had and idea like this one, so that tells me that this one is “The One!”.
Since I began thinking about this story the other night when I was researching more about Script Writing, it hasn’t left my mind. Even yesterday as I was relaxing in the tanning bed, all I could think about was the story. How the characters would act, the setting, the old buildings of New Orleans, the Carnival, the wolves, and so on. I could picture how the story will play out from beginning to end – even though there were a few empty areas, but I’m sure they will fill themselves in once the writing gets going. Oh! I’m so excited!
