Random Ideas

21 Jun

July’s Camp NaNo is right around the corner. As per usual, I’m not sure what I’m writing. I’m going for 50k words again, especially since I did so well during the last camp session. I may just add words to a couple of works-in-progress, but I also have some other ideas buzzing around in my head:

BlackbirdCatching a fairy is no easy task, but Nina and Jay were able to do just that. Rather, Nina caught the fairy. Jay had wanted no part of it. Fairies were tricky beings, always pulling pranks with their magic. Yet, if you were lucky enough to catch one, that fairy would owe you a wish. Be careful what you wish for, though. Fairies were known for finding loopholes. If you didn’t word the wish just right, then who knows what would happen with the fairy’s magic.

Such as when Nina wanted to wish for stronger wings to keep up with the rest of the Cloudrunners. Instead of focusing on her stunted wing growth, she asked to be more like a bird. Fairies are quite literal when they grant wishes…

Shooting StarsAccording to legend, shooting stars were symbols of wishes being granted. That was where Shooting Stars, an organization that granted the wishes of sick or injured children, got its name. One of the more common wishes that a child asks for is to meet his or her favorite superhero. Considering their jobs, superheroes were kind enough to be available to grant the wishes (the good press didn’t hurt either).

But what happens when a child wishes to meet a villain…? Who gets tasked with finding said villain, to persuade him or her to meet a child without going all evil? Not many people are up to the task, but the new Shooting Stars volunteer just might be…

Maybe one day they’ll get written too.

    I really adore that first idea that you have. Of course, both of them sound pretty amazing. Whichever one you go with, I’m excited to see where it takes you!

    While I like both ideas, I like Shooting Stars overall. I mean… Who doesn’t love a good villain?

    I agree with everyone. I really like the Shooting Stars idea. Then again, I’m a little biased because I’m not big on fairies.

    I really like the Shooting Stars idea. Not many people would go out of their way to find the villain the child wants to meet, and that takes extreme effort and patience. This idea is a brilliant one.

    Kris, I am writing poetry at 10,000 words for Camp NaNoWriMo and celebrating my birthday July 11. I have a cabin called Cabin Enigma. Do you have a cabin yet?

      That sounds like an awesome camp goal! Is poetry what you normally write, or are you giving yourself a challenge to improve on your poetry? I do already have a cabin, but thank you for asking!

        I tend to write newsletter articles. Poetry is what I am writing lately.
