Day 8 and NaNoWriMo just got darker
I was planning to write a light comedy piece today, similar in plot and style to a short story I wrote a few years ago, but which I intended to rewrite using a better structure.
While I was eating breakfast, a different story came to me. This one was a dark medical drama, with just a tinge of humour.
Should I stick to my original plan? Or go for the story that was now almost writing itself?
I went with the story that was most insistent it wanted to be written. It involves a backward practice, a maverick doctor, a pandemic, and a survival plan. All entirely fictional, of course.
Eight stories down. Only twenty-two more to go!
