Not because I haven't got any ideas, but because I've got too many. What should I write next? Should it be the one with the llamas in? Or the 'quiet man in the caravan' story? Or should I finish that vampire novella that's half done and sitting on my desktop like a big accusatory finger wagging at me whenever I start my machine?
|Yes, I'm inclining towards the llamas myself|
It's like...you know when you fancy a bar of chocolate? You just think 'mmmm, I want some chocolate,' so you go to the shop and you stand in front of the 'chocolate' section and... do you want milk, plain or white? Do you want ordinary chocolate, or chocolate with bits in? Posh chocolate, which you tell yourself you will only eat a little bit of because it's so rich, or cheap chocolate where you know you will scoff the whole bar in seconds? Or would you rather have something covered in chocolate, like peanuts or raisins? Or even a pack of chocolate biscuits, because they are chocolate and you can also dunk them in your tea?
|Choose fast, choose wisely|
And then I have the tendency for my ideas to become like Rocky Road - llamas, plus quiet man in caravan, with a few vampires floating around for good measure.
I think I'll go and stare at the chocolate section again for a bit. Warning: my next story may contain nuts.
