Mental Inventory

Today I spent a little time going through the many (too many?) stories and ideas I have accumulated over the years, ideas that have been percolating for far too long without being put to paper. Disregarding the ones that could barely be called more than seeds of ideas, I was still left with quite a few. Some are more fleshed out than others, of course, but each and every one are certainly fleshed out enough to be told. It makes me sad that I just can’t seem to find the will to it. Just do it, damn it! Oh well, here are the ones that are properly fleshed both in regards to story and characters, as well as the world they are in, which have been written down to some degree (at least a few chapters):

  • Epic Fantasy
  • Victorian Mystery/Horror
  • Contemporary Urban Supernatural
  • Dystopian Science Fiction

And these are the stories that are not quite as fleshed out and exists more in the mind than on paper:

  • Contemporary Urban Horror
  • Interwar Era Supernatural
  • Survivalist Science Fiction
  • Contemporary Mythological Horror
  • 18th Century Supernatural/Horror

So there is where I am at the moment; Trying to drag myself out of the apathetic mindset that keeps me from doing what I love. But where to begin? Most if not all of these ideas are brilliant, though it could be argued that I am somewhat biased on the matter. Joking aside, all of these ideas have good potential in my opinion. I would certainly read them if someone wrote them. Now I just need to work through this blockage of depression. And knowing myself, soon I will.
