I really do like my original project idea, but one thing I learned while doing the podcast was how much I love editing audio. I did some work with audio in high school and I have forgotten how I enjoy the whole process so much. So though I love following this rollerblading apocalypse survivor, I want something that will give me more options to play with audio. For that reason, I might change the idea to something with a little more audible potential.
I have had an idea rattling around in my head for a little while now. It’s been simmering, picking up bits and pieces, interrupting classes with daydreams, pulling quotes from people I pass, and nudging my attention to certain things usually disregarded.
Now, I am more superstitious than I appear. I knock on wood when my thoughts get a little too bold or on the nose, I believe luck can be given and received, and it is a powerful gift indeed. All this to say I am suspicious of saying (typing out) my story idea here, lest it drains away faster than it appeared in the first place. I don’t want to lose it. But what are we to do now? Can I just say I have this Idea and you believe me? No, I don’t think that will do. I’ll give away as much as I think I can and you wish me all the luck you can spare.
