My fellow writers out there I’m back to just being a writer! I created a separate WordPress for my educational content/ graduate fluff stuff.
Curious about the title of this blog? Well I’m sure you’ll understand once I explain. As a writer we have, often, several stories floating around in our minds constantly wanting to float between each. Well, I have this problem currently and I can’t decide which I want to focus on or if I should just attempt both. So… let’s begin–
Nishume Chronicles Revision
For any of you who have even glanced at the other pages in this blog you might have seen Dem’rick’s story. I finished writing this novel last year and set it down. I was told before editing you needed to look at it again with new eyes. Well, I have new eyes and I think it can be better.
So, my first story I’m telling you about is the longest one I’ve been writing. Longest as is ive worked on it since 2012, and longest because it’s 408 pages on my google doc😱.
Shit. That’s long.
My goal is to cut it down by about half. Dem’rick is also angry, pissed off and ready for revenge. The story follows his plan to destroy his enemy and tharwt Mikulas’ goal for the world. It because it’s the right thing to do, but because he wants to see his ex-friend fail.
The Underlying Truth
Here is a story you haven’t heard of from me. So, here is a little snippet of this story.
The Underlying Truth takes place in an alternate America where the eastern half is overrun by shape shifting monsters called Mitos. A faction of hunters are hired to track and kill out of control Mitos, where our main character comes in to play. Her name is Rooney and she is a Mito hunter. She meets a boy named Lyric who saves her life and joins her group. They are forced to learn how to work together and eventually fall in love. Unfortunately, Lyric carries a dark secrete that might destroy everything Rooney has created.
Tadaa! Now you know at least two of the stories I have been working on. There is a third, but I’m sure that one is on the back burner.
You See my Dilemma?
I want to work on both stories, however jumping back and forth can cause a lot of problems. Right at the moment I’m focusing on the Nishume Chronicles. Though it makes me sad to set The Underlying Truth aside so easily. It is a Romance and I’m in the mood for some star crossed lovers.
Have any of you been in the same dilemma?
