Did you ever ...

Did you ever have an idea you thought was so great that you weren't sure you could pull it off?

This week DH and I have been out of town. We went on our annual apple picking trip - mmmmmm, apples :0). While we were gone, I worked a little bit on my MG every day, even if it was just a few lines, or notes on what I wanted to do with the plot or characters.

Then on Wednesday, I got the most amazing idea for my book (well, at least I think it's a cool idea). The kind of idea that you think should be given to an amazing writer - one that can actually pull something like this off. But I decided to go for it anyway and see if I can write it.

I've had ideas I didn't think I could pull off before with ideas for paintings. When they've worked, it's usually some hybrid of my original idea, morphed into something even better. When I can't do it, it's usually awful (but sometomes worth starting over and trying again).

So, I'm thinking that even if my first draft of the MG is awful, maybe I can make it better in revisions so that it works.

Crossing my fingers!!!!
