X is for X...marks the spot!
Yeah...I know. But I have something to discuss today cause my head is going to begin to hurt if I keep thinking about it.
Treasure. Treasure in pirate books.
Initially, I had this idea that my pirates would go after something they thought was treasure and discover that it really wasn't treasure. With this rewrite, I'm going, "What in the world are you thinking, guys?" cause I don't know what they're going to end up doing once they go to the spot they told me they were going.
I really think Barren has a plan, but I can't be sure. I keep telling myself just keep reading your book, writing out the conflicts that come to you and keep writing what scenes you see in your head. I'm writing down everything, even if I don't know if I'll use it in the book. I think my problem is I can't get away from the original idea.
At the moment, my question is...Is there treasure?
I think that's because I wan to know if I'm going to be taking something familiar and making it unfamiliar? Cause trust me...any treasure in my books is not going to be gold and silver, and more than likely it's going to be something no one wants to really deal with. lol.
What do you guys think? I notice that many people loved Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest, but when the other movies kinda got all crazy and found their way into a different pursuit, they weren't as popular (I still liked them). lol. What do you think? Traditional? Non-traditional? I'm a fan of doing what my book tells me...that's why I just wait for the characters to speak up...even if that takes for ever *bangs head in hand*
