The fic series I've been casually writing for my main RP hero in City of has unexpectedly bloomed. This is mainly because I've finally come up with a workable antagonist for him who fits into the story without too much jigging about.

There is really only one problem with this:

It'll mean I'll be trying to concentrate on this and on NaNo at the same time from now till... whenever it gets finished or the end of November at least, whichever comes sooner.

I suppose I could write City of fanfic for NaNo, using this plot as a springboard and writing big chunks of backstory for both Psychist and Tommy Bedlam (antagonist!) and re-writing (for NaNo) what I've already written to fit in... but I'm loathe to do that. For one, it'll mean I'll be way too easily distracted by the game in the form of "character research" (I know what I'm like). And for two... I'm not sure if I want to do fanfic this year. I mean, I use NaNo as a writing exercise - something to get me to write in large chunks, on a regular/daily basis, because otherwise I'm a sporadic writer at best despite all the stuff I've got on the computer and on paper round my room that needs to be finished - so whether or not I write something that can be published is of no real consquence to me. But on the other hand there's a part of me that always enjoys coming up with the world and new characters and plots and stuff...

Arrgh. Why can't my head just stick with one idea?
