Fic stuff

I'm thinking more and more about writing something original. My dad thinks I should adapt Talented (a Lost Boys fix I wrote a few years back) into something not Lost Boys related. I don't think I'm going to do that for two reasons. The first is that I really like Talented just the way it is, and changing it in that way would feel like I was destroying something that I loved and piecing it back together with superglue, and there is no way that it would ever be the same. The second reason is that if I do write something I would rather it were something new.

I did write a few stories years ago, before I started writing Lost Boys stuff. They were, in a way, based on Lost Boys though, I'll be honest. That wasn't deliberate, but I suspect it was the case subconsciously. They feature two school-age brothers who fight vampires, but the similarities end there, for the most part. I'm considering revisiting them, rewriting them and making them better (because I'm sure they will suck if I re-read them now)

But I'm going to finish the Enemy before I do any of this. It's kicking my ass at the moment. Every time I think I've come up with a way to bring it to the ending I want, my mind throws out a problem that I need to write around. I'm also considering revisiting the earlier chapters of that man making some minor tweaks. I think I could make it better. I'm just not sure if I should, or if I should leave it now it's done. I really wish I hadn't written that prologue...
