I've been working on two WIPs for the last few days. One is a comedy. The other is tragedy. Both have elements of science fiction. When it's me, how can that possibly come as a surprise? I'm excited about both projects, and the benefit of working on two extremely different projects seems to be this: no matter what mood I'm in, it seems I'm in the right mood to work on one of them.
Today seems to be a tragic mood. Not that I'm sad or anything, because I'm not. I'm just in the mood to make people cry.
Wow. When I say it like that, it sounds bad. Hopefully my fellow writers will understand. I want to evoke powerful emotions in my readers. I want people to connect with the worlds I create. It's not like I want to go up and kick someone in the shins in the hopes of producing tears. That would just make me a jerk.
I'll let you know more as my newest project begins to unfold. All I can say for now is that I'm optimistic. Though the fresh cup of coffee I have in hand might be a contributing factor in that.
