WARNING: I am talking about the Unicorn Bait sequel so there are spoilers for Unicorn Bait. If you are planning to read Unicorn Bait and wish to be surprised, avert your eyes, AND GO READ UNICORN BAIT! It's free! I don't know how much easier I can make it for you, except reading it to you, but I got a sore throat, so tough.
WELL, I have written over 2000 words today for the Unicorn Bait sequel, which is above the daily minimum. So go me! And in a bit of perfect timing, I received an email today from someone who'd read Unicorn Bait and enjoyed it. She had one request for the sequel: More cussing woodland creatures. And you know what, I can do that. ;0) In fact, I'm all for a whole foul-mouthed forest. I don't know how crazy I'll get, but when I originally wrote Unicorn Bait, I took dares from a thread in the Nanowrimo forums. That's how the Umbreks happened and the weird tree guys in one of the happenstance realities Naomi accidentally teleports to. Sometimes having a weird, off-the-wall suggestion helps the words flow or sparks the imagination. Also I just like crazy. So go ahead, leave a suggestion and maybe it will appear in the sequel!
Oh dear, I just found the document where I saved some of the dares that intrigued me. One has already jumped out at me:
Have male characters with the nicknames Bambi, Grandma, and Polly. Bonus points if you include logical back stories.
I'm thinking biker gang. Or the high fantasy equivalent. It'll be great!
So give me your recommendations, I'd love to read them!
