Hi, all. Lovely weather we’re having, eh?
So. I’m writing a story that I hope to maybe one day turn into a book. The way the chapters are going to be titled is based off a list the main character makes of things that keep him up at night. I’m trying to come up with at least ten things – maybe more, depending on how much I’m able to produce – so that I can have at least ten chapters. Twenty would probably actually be better. I don’t know.
Anyway. I’m having a spot of trouble coming up with things, though, so my question to y’all is: what keeps you up at night?
I mean, it can be anything. The current list I have so far for my dude is as follows:
- loud noises
- half remembered songs
- Atticus (another character from the story)
I’m trying to stay away from anything too obvious (the loud noises bit is probably gonna go) but otherwise… Well, just chuck your ideas at me. Let’s see what sticks.
Thanks in advance~
(Another tangentially related question that I didn’t want to start a new thread for: for sharing bits and getting critiqued/ripped apart, what non-CoG writing communities do y’all frequent that would be welcoming and gentle to a timid stranger? Or, if the urge to share my bits gets too strong, should I simply post 'em on my blog, link 'em here, and hope for the best?)
