And today. Today I just got really inspired by this song.
Yet beyond that I just got ideas to have a story which would basically extrapolate a post-apocalyptic setting reasonably close to what the lyrics would be. This is certainly nothing new. It's been done dozens of times before. Not to this song I imagine, but the setting I'd be creating would be almost a cliche.
...Except. I'd make it not be one, to have it be not thoroughly depressing, not be too dark, not have the expected conflict, and just be good characters trying to survive and not having drama so much as it is the bonding which I love to tell in my stories. People surviving together, facing tough decisions, maybe arguing, but ultimately striving forward without self-destructing.
I think I could do it.
But starting to write something like that would be...well.
Stupidly bipolar of me, for lack of better words. It'd be stupid given what I have on my plate. And it's something I feel is my bipolar disorder talking: I'm passionate about it now, but how about two weeks from now?
You get the idea.
