So You Think You're JK Rowling
Seven book series came to me fully formed on the train this morning.
And the original seeds of the series might have been hovering on the horizon for about two years.
But the Pirate ship is a good addition.
As is overlaying a GRAND seven-book mystery on top of the self-contained books dealing with real teen issues.
And making the teen issues each a mystery of their own.
So all in all it was a good wake-sleep state progression of ideas.
And I officially have my NaNoWriMo project now. So that's a bonus.
The Poisoned Pencil—stand-alone or series. I need to check them out more completely, as with small publishers there is a bit of 'buyer beware' but they look pretty good. I have a couple other works I can consider them for with stand-alones, though none quite clean, but I love the idea of a YA Mystery Series. Not Nancy Drew... More Veronica Mars... Only geekier. My kids aren't the shunned 'used-to-be-cools' but the 'so not cool they are resorting to fantasy to cope with high school'. (that would be the pirate ship part—well Space Pirate... called The Pleides—home of the seven sisters, all that.)
And that is why you get a rare Saturday blog... I was inspired.
