So I heard a story, just a seed. A situation, if you like that is a true event. Instantly my mind outlined an entire novel, and in my lunch hour I typed the outline up with key plot twists etc. However, I realised it was a story not suited for my style or interests. It is a world war 1 epic, and a completely new take on it (as far as I'm aware). My girlfriend has a passing interest in writing, but she didn't want to take it on. So now I'm torn, is it a story I should attempt, or should I just let it fade. I'm sure if done properly, it is the sort of story that would get picked up by Hollywood as its a human interest/horrors of war story. The problem is that it might require a lifetimes worth of research... Or maybe not, maybe I should wash over facts and concentrate on the story? Anyone had a similar situation or have any advice? Ps sorry for the title, I've been up since 5 am and realise the error *blush* edit. Thank you for changing title mods.
