May was a crazy month for me. From Meet The Newbies, to finals, and BEA; there was just so much going on but in all of that I got back into writing. I would love to finish one of the two drafts that I am currently working on in June.
I have started several books, but I just never finish anything. I love concept creation, but my follow through is shit. So I thought I would share some of my projects with you. These are very short synopses that don't really capture the full story.
1. Red riding hood retelling in a YA post-apocalyptic future. Kind of zombie/werewolf creatures and a girl sacrificed to the wild because of her red hair. (13,000 words written)
2. Based on a dream, nightmare rather, I had that featured the game manhunt (basically hide and go seek on steroids) where I found a friend dead. It is a YA Mystery/Thriller/Horror about a serial killer following two friends who try and solve the murders before they wind up next. (8,000 words written)
3. This is a retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth that deals with reincarnation as the Gods begin to lose power. This is NA. (25,000 words written)
4. A NA Contemporary that follows this character Autumn, who didn't have the greatest home life and found solace in a book series. She becomes pretty famous in the fandom and gets opportunities to meet the actors when the movie comes out. The love interest is one of the actors and Autumn pretty much continuously shuts him down. (12,000 words written)
I'm currently working on the Hades/Persephone story and the NA Contemporary more so than the other two. I don't know if anything will ever come out of these stories, but I have been really enjoying writing them.
Do you write? If so are you currently working on anything?
