Brewing Idea

I enjoy writing fantasy and science-fiction and have very little intention of wandering out of my little world to explore.  It’s safe and under my control.  So, I find it strange that I have this urge to write a novella/short story that is more dark, black, graphic horror, guano-level crazy.  It stems from two recurring dreams colliding with each other.  One dream was always me in an elevator talking with either a friend, a fictional character, or a celebrity.  It usually depended on the last thing I did or saw before I went to bed.  Another dream had me being extremely angry and depressed with dark creatures coming out of my mind to tear into everyone around me.  Well, the dreams merged so I was stuck in an elevator with an actress, we were both miserably depressed, and outside the elevator was utter chaos as shadow beings slaughtered some odd convention.

I’m thinking about turning this into a novella and publishing it on Kindle to test the waters and exorcize a demon or two.  I’m just not sure about doing it because it takes me out of my comfort zone and sticking to the ‘celebrity evil sidekick’ makes me a little nervous about pissing off someone higher up the social food chain than myself.  I’m not stupid enough to choose celebrities and take their direct names, description, history, and everything else because that would truly lead to my destruction.

I guess I’m just wondering if this is a good idea to pursue and flush out.  I can probably write it in two weeks if I take the rest of the month to outline and design characters.  It also gives me time if I want to go with an optimistic or pessimistic ending.  I guess I’ll get a few more opinions and see where my mind takes me.
