Haven't I read this before?

This week’s topic for RTW (Roadtrip Wednesdays) is:
What SNI were you psyched to work on, but discovered it was too close to something already done?
This was an easy question to answer.  At first I thought, no, I can’t think really think of anything that I trunked because it was too popular.  Then, it hit me…


So one day, I was trying to write a scene for Book 1 of the series I’m writing, when suddenly, I hear people talking.  Not out loud of course, they were just voices in my head.

Me: I’m trying to write, leave me alone.

The voices: Yap yap yap, babble babble babble***

Me: Stop!

The voices: Blah, blah, blah, blah.

I gave in, and wrote out the conversation the three people were having.  Then came about eight other scene.  In total, not more than twenty pages.

But I didn’t continue writing it, I didn’t even try to figure out all the plot points. 

This was back in 2008, when Twilight was getting popular.  Time went on, The Vampire Diaries (LOVE!) premiered.  And of course, a million other vampire things.  I didn’t want people thinking, “ugh, another vampire story.”  I didn’t want it judged so quickly.    
So that story remains incomplete.  The folder has been opened, I have reread what I’ve written – and I find it pretty interesting, which is the amazing part.  Will I ever finish it? I don’t know. First I have to finish my series. It’s going on seven years now, I think it’s time, but let’s see if it wants to get finished.  Then, I really want to write a sci-fi series.  Oh, I have that stand-alone book I wrote that needs serious editing.

Hmmm, apparently I won’t be finishing it….

We’ll see.  *shrugs*

What about everyone else?

***Which city do people that talk a lot live in?

Get it?  Ahahahaha!
