Writing plans - an update

As I've already mentioned to a couple of friends involved in NaNoWriMo, I really don't anticipate having the time to write in November, but will pick another month to write a book in next year, probably but not necessarily January.  Unfortunately the original story I intended to write is proving unsuited for the task, though it might make a good song. Accordingly, I've decided to drop it for novel purposes, and instead am composing a "cozy" mystery, set in a haunted museum, an idea I've had floating around for years.   (Yes, there will be a cat.  No, it will not solve mysteries.)  Accordingly, I get to start researching all over again... and there's a lot of stuff I'm going to need to research....

Oooo, a cozy mystery, a haunted museum, a cat... right up my street! Ohboy ohboy! And research! How good does it get?! Can't wait!

Reading every one of the books--now THAT's a reason to haunt a place that I could get behind!
This is gonna be a great story!

Yeah, that one's sorta based on my stated intention to haunt the Smithsonian when I pass on.

Well, yeah, that's the only way you'd ever get to see it all!

That was what I figured.

Sounds fun, although I'm sorry to hear about the unsuitableness of the original story--hope you get some good use of it later.

I'm still thinking about NaNo... if I look at the morass of stuff I've got lying about and see something writeable lying within it in time, I'll do it. ;-)

Oh I'll find something to do with it - maybe a song or three.
