I was just loooking for some opinions on whether or not to store an idea for later... The principle reason is I think I'm not ready for the story and it's theme, and I want to do it justice (or at least something closer to what it deserves) when I'm older, and have more experience (writing and otherwise). Have any of you ever done this? Did you regret not plunging into an idea right away? Or was it much easier starting with a clean slate later? I'm not concerned about not having anything else to write about at the time being, (have planty of plates for the burners), but just whether this particular idea should sit. The story is about a girl, (happens to be about my current age), who lives in a world where all painful memories are regularly erased (maybe monthly; it's not so difficult as it sounds, as the populatoin has been significantly reduced after what seemed like the end of the world). She slips through the system once, and finally becomes aware of what's going on. She's disturbed by it, though unable to identify the value of suffering yet, so when she comes across some "underground" people who've never had any of their memories erased, she tries to help them overthrow the system. Eventually she does learn the value of suffering, confronts the fellow who set up the whole Memory Removal system- but I'm unsure whether she's actually successful in her attempt or not... On the one hand, writing now might help writing about the MC (or maybe not?). But the whole theme of suffering and its value feels very touchy, and something I've got no authority whatsoever to work with. Of course, if this sounds ways too unoriginal/similar to something you know of, please let me know! Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
