I stopped doing it three or four years ago when my writing well dried up, but I'm considering trying anew this year. I have a whole world that I built by cannibalizing characters, ideas, and settings from literally everything else I've ever written. I have notes, sketches, outlines, character sheets ... I have it all.

And I don't know if I like it. I don't know if I care.

I have a few vague ideas for something entirely new. And that usually works for me. I've always done my best flying completely by the seat of my pants. No ideas, no plans, just a couple characters, a setting, and maybe a funny bit of dialogue I plan to use eventually.

Several years ago, I took the whole first week of November off work and finished in six days. I've got the second week off this year ... maybe I'll try for a new record.
