New idea

I came up with a new idea! Actually it's an old idea but I think I finally have an idea (the core of the plot ie. the reason why) all hammered out to MY satisfaction.
It's going to be a Neji/Sasuke fic...blatantly borrowed for Hellagoddess's work: "Wide of the Mark". I dunno where she went. I've emailed and "reviewed" that story a few times..no response.
So, I decided that since I like the idea of Neji/Sasu I'd rework it and post it.

The only part that is the same is that it will be Neji/Sasu and Sasuke will be "hidden" in the sexy no jutsuu with a henge on top. The rest of it is all mine.
What makes it hard is the time line...
1) where to put it in cannon?
There really isn't much room to squeeze it in before Sasuke makes a break for it and rushes off to Orochimaru OR place it totally AU and have it set in a time where it's after the timeskip and Sasu comes back to Konoah and right now, in the cannon story line, I don't see that happening.
2)  In cannon Sasuke is 13 and Neji is 14 so that makes the whole "consummation of the marriage" scene tricky...and probably illegal in many places. >.<
But if you place it after the timeskip Sasu is 16 and Neji 17, which is more reasonable...However it doesn't work for the cannon storyline.

However if I place it before the timeskip it would "explain" why Sasu is considered a missing Nin.
It would make the neji/sasu relationship more believable.
It allows both characters to grow emotionally and mature together instead of apart and separated.
And it would "help" when Sasu pops up again in his natural form.

My next "problem" is...where to post it?
I am thinking here. and maybe AFF and Fanfic net (maybe) the whole age thing though is a stumbling block. To make it fit in cannon it has to be placed prior to the timeskip.
I could make it AU but...those don't appeal to me as a reader, why would I post one as a writer?
So it's going to be as close to cannon as I can put it.

So! Be prepared for near death experiences!
Hokages who have to cover up missing nins!
Starcrossed "lovers" and embryo transfers!
yeah...it's gonna be a weird hybrid-mpreg but I LIKE MPreg so nyeh! on anyone who turns their nose up at it. :P

Okay! Well it's January 2009.
Nanowrimo was in November (2 months ago) and I did not participate.
I tried it in 2007 and FAILED big time. lol
I got around 6k words in 6 days...I was so far behind I dropped out. School did not help. I am not good at doing three or four high stress things at once so for my own sanity I uh...*clears throat

Jump forward to 2008!
It kind of snuck up on me and I was just like: I have nothing. So I am not going to participate this year.

And then November passes and I kinda wished I had participated. However!!! I maintain that November is a sucky month for taking on such a large Project. You have School with mid-terms and papers and stress and Martha Stewart and starting art projects and getting shopping lists together for December and getting your food...and I am gonna quit now because I a working myself up again.

Anyways!! I came up with a YA series idea around Halloween. I began watching scary movies ON Halloween (yeah I know) and came up with this idea.
And you know how ideas are they kinda just...bubble and squeek and gestate and kick you in ribs every once in a while and when they're ready they pop out.
Maybe not fully formed but yeah...
So that's what happened with this idea. It wasn't ready for 2008 Nano. Honestly after I put it into the incubator I kinda forgot about it.

Uhm..New Years Eve my best friend says Happy new year and lets get started on that story idea!!

And I was like...what? What story?

And then I remembered that I had told her about it when she came down from WA To visit. I didn't really realize that she was really listening to me blabber on and on about this weird idea I had. And after I had you know, put it out there into the ionosphere I as like: "YAY! I feel purged!" and totally forgot.
Some author I am.

I really haven't written anything in a while. I can come up with ideas but actually getting my butt sitting down in a chair and working is quite a different ...yeah.

SO! Arra tells me! Let's write this thing!
And I began to get excited and if you haven't figured it out now, I am OCD. So I began researching wildly not so much my subject matter, because it is a collaboration and I want this book (or series of books) to be as much mine as they are Arras. So I am having to adjust my wild compulsiveness to just WRITE and wait for Arra to get back to me with her ideas of where she wants this to go.
I love seeing other peoples ideas; I feel like all the responsibility isn't on my shoulders and I am really bouncy right now.

I think it's driving Arra nuts. Lol

She has her own life, and I am going to have to adjust to that but I think I have things set up in a way that we can collaborate well. Where we can get our drafts uploaded and pass them to each other and be in sync.

So that's what I've decided to go forward with this year. A new project which will be BASICALLY A Nanowrimo but not in November >.>
Agent Query says that a YA novel is around 142 pages and 40-60k words...

Looks like we're doing a Jan/Feb Nano. As long as Arra gets back to me with the characters we're working with! I left that up to her.
Since we are going to be working with Teens and tweens and I want her to feel that this is her project too, I am letting her do a lot of character development. Mostly of our main group of 5 characters.

I'll try and keep you posted on our progress or lack thereof.

I am so excited and a little scared. Seeing at Nano in two months is - - it makes me giggly. But then again lots of things make me giggly!
