Quit Naming Projects!!!

I really need to quit naming projects because when I do, they tend to die. I have once again abandoned Peternatural. There are three ideas that I always have in my head at all times that I return to at least once a year:

Peternatural – a normal guy, Peter, suddenly gains the ability to see supernatural beings. He ends up living with a demon and a ghost and funny things happen. This is also known as Being Human. (Sigh)

Personal Demons – Matthew accidentally summons a demon in his sleep and awakes to find it is bound to him. The demon complicates his life in different and funny ways.

Venturi Force – This is my Power Rangers spoof where an eccentric Japanese professor assembles his own Power Rangers team to fight evil creations of Dr. Vivian Underwood. Funny things happen.

Each year, I try to do something with these ideas and I get stopped and stumped at the same point every time. I create characters, but I have nothing for them to do. Every time!

So what I’ve done is combine them all into one. Let me tell you that it’s an interesting mix. All of these ideas are supposed to be funny, but what I’ve come up with is not very funny at all. Dark and serious is what I’m good at, so that’s what I’m sticking to, even though I desperately want to branch out and try something new.

I’ve got some ideas down, but it’s been slow going. I’m in no rush, but sorta am. I’m going to let the ideas flow as they come. I haven’t decided if this idea is going to be urban fantasy or fantasy… or maybe both. My goal is to mold this idea into a tiny book series that I can release every couple of months. I’m hoping that I can maintain faith in this project long enough to make something of it.

I need beta readers for “Time and a Half” (Janitorpunk). If you are interested in reading it, please let me know.

Thank you for reading!

    Oh, and I probably average ten projects that I write up to the point of naming them for every one that I finish. On the plus side, I usually find something to salvage from all of them.
