I want to write a book that is a play on Peter Pan but with girls instead of lost boys. I want to take the gender roles of the world and reverse them. Have Captain Hook be a woman and misunderstood. Take that world of tropes and turn it upside down. I want it to be a truth to what girls are really like, and what our real fears are. I want it to be playful too, and humorous in that dark way of seeing the truth for what it really is.
I know that I am unable to right that kind of story right now. But I do not want to forget the type of story I longingly strive to write.
Focus will be my new mantra. Focus on what I am doing now, whatever that may be and be there for that.
I will finish my current WIP. And I will continue to have it reviewed chapter by chapter by my writing group. However, I do realize that this book is training wheels. And that I may still have several more training wheels books in me. But that like anything I will need to go through this stage in order to get to that stage where I see myself painting the masterpieces. I have them in my head, but not the tools to bring them to life or the skills yet. Someday I will. But today, I will get back on my bike with the training wheels and keep on peddling.
