This year I’ll be participating in National Novel Writing Month for the first time, and I’ll be using a story idea that I have not yet thoroughly developed (I’m totally using this as an excuse to play with unknowns, which is always a blast).
The Phantoms’ Interpreter
Author: “Tea and Ideas” (my NaNoWriMo name)
“Josef Kant is assigned as liaison to a telepathic interpreter who is integral to opening a dialogue with the creatures clawing through from the realm next-door.”
Where Did This Story Idea Come From?
The concept came from three places. From three movies, actually. “District 9” (2009), “Pacific Rim” (2013), and “Spectral” (2016).
The Super-Vague Plan
I definitely want to write from an outline. While I have no problem dragging characters across a surrealistic backdrop in bizarre, and yet meaningful, encounters, I think I want something different and more focused for The Phantoms’ Interpreter.
