Over the past few weeks, life has been pretty intensely busy for me and I've just not had the time to do the creative work of figuring out how I want to get the story where I want it to go.

I have, however, had an idea for another story. It's kind of risky in that there is a group of "bad people" who would have to be named after DDO characters, even though I don't think those people are 'bad' in any sense... but the plot would be more meaningful, I think.

I also know this is sort of petty, but I made some pretty substantial mistakes with the first series and I just don't think that they can be undone. For example, I made Bsh1 and I Republicans... and I'm just tired of writing from that perspective.

This other idea I have isn't political at all; it's set at a fictional private school in Western MA. I feel like "school" is really all I could realistically write about, because I'm not good at writing fantasy anything, I don't want to do another political one and I've actually got the plot for this other one fully developed. It's actually based on another story I wrote a long time ago, but I think I could adapt to be a fan fic.

What are your thoughts?

Who cares what other people think. If it sounds good to you, then do it!!! unless of course if mass slaughter sounds good to you.

I just want to gauge interest. I don't write these so much because I enjoy writing them, but for people to enjoy reading them.

What is the point of writing something if you don't enjoy writing it? I mean, probably nothing that I've invested many hours into writing will see the light of day beyond my 2003 Computer. But I enjoy writing those stories, so it's worth it to me.
If you don't enjoy writing your story, then don't.

I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

You should write whichever you'd prefer. Whatever you write will undoubtedly be excellent, so all that matters is that you KEEP writing something, because I am selfish and demand entertainment.
