Camp NaNo Day 1: Villain Of The Weak
Started and completed a story which is 1,253 words long. So far, so good! My story is Villain Of The Weak, in which Grandpa Anarchy and his sidekick Kid Tuesday fight Kid Calculus, a former sidekick and also a former member of the League Of Former Sidekicks, who has now declared his intention to become Grandpa's new arch nemesis. But it takes more than a declaration to be the arch nemesis of Grandpa Anarchy!
I also created three new story files today, called Couldn't Be Bolder, Flailing Around, and Monster. I'm not sure any of them qualify as full-blown ideas -- well, the second one might in fact qualify. In reverse order, they are: some lines and notes about bad people who grow up to be bad villains, jotted down while listening to this week's This American Life which was about bad kids; some lines and ideas based on the song Losing My Religion, but with the core of an idea about an insecure someone whose fantasies and nightmares manifest as real things; and more lines from the song Bungle In The Jungle, because the line "Couldn't Be Bolder" seemed like a possible story title.
But tomorrow's story will be Banana Also Rises, I think.
