So there are a few other blogs doing this, and I figured, hey, I need to post something and it sounds fun, so I’ll do it, too. Some day soon, I’ll actually post something original and also possibly interesting. Maybe. No guarantees. So, uh, here’s my writerly wish-list thing of things I want to write some day. Maybe I’ll even write them this next year, in 2015.
(Note, these are composed in absolutely no order whatsoever.)
1. Something Sci-Fi
I’ve honestly never written anything sci-fi before. Written plenty of fantasy, but never sci-fi, and I’d like to do that some day.
2. A murder mystery
I watch murder mystery cop shows with my mom all the time (Castle and BBC’s Sherlock are my favorites, if you were wondering…which you probably weren’t), and I kind of want to write one one day… I’ll admit, though, I’ve never actually read a murder mystery before.
That’s also technically on my list, even if it’s reading and not writing related.
3. Something publishable
Am I allowed to say that? It’s true!
4. A graphic novel
Like in the case of the murder mystery, I’ve never actually read a graphic novel (I mean, unless the Artemis Fowl ones and the Lightning Thief ones count, but…they were originally novels to begin with, so I don’t know if they actually count…), but I would really want to write one. I do have an idea for a superhero story that I think could work as a graphic novel. Honestly, though, I think my art would need a lot more improvements before I could even begin to tackle this.
5. The script for a video game
I could just write the script for a movie or something like that, but I don’t know, the idea of writing a story for a video game sounds cooler. Is that just me?
6. A good fairy tale retelling
I’ve written fairy tale retellings before. I sort of wrote one for NaNo ’12, and I had one attempt that made it to about 15k, and I’m sort of working on another one off-and-on, but I’d like to actually be able to write a good one. The attempts so far haven’t been great.
7. Something with more swords and weapons and…
…and do I even sound like a girl anymore? I don’t know, I kind of like stories with big, epic sword-fights and battles and that stuff. I’ve never written anything like this, though, because the only thing I know about a sword is that one end is typically pointy, and the only things I know about a bow is that it’s not as easy as it looks to shoot it, the things Legolas does are impossible, the few times I have shot with a bow it’s been really fun, and I can’t imagine ever traveling with a bow. There’s goes that dream of one day being a Ranger. My knowledge on modern weapons are even less. Um…guns have a trigger and you pull it to shoot…right?
8. A historical fiction
Yeah, kind of self-explanatory. I don’t even know what part of history I’d want to do it in, though. Maybe something in the Victorian era. Or maybe something in colonial America. Or maybe something else entirely.
9. Something steam-punk
I honestly don’t know why. I didn’t even know I liked steam-punk, but I think it might be kind of cool to write one time…
That’s about all I can think of, though I’m sure as soon as this post becomes public, I’ll think of a bunch more. Heheh, but that’s how it always works.
