“Your skin looks beautiful again.” Jameson wore his robes. Emelia assumed he was blushing, but his hood was covering his face. She could see his undershirt hanging out of the side of her knapsack on his back.
She smiled. “It feels much better. Thank you, Jameson.”
“May I question why you’re running from the Palace, Emelia?” He adjusted the hood, his hands rough looking and cracked.
Emelia gave in and told him. It’s not like he could go anywhere, he’s sworn his life to her.
“But, you would make a fine queen.”
“Flattery will not buy you your freedom, Jameson.” She shoved him with side the hood, thus causing it to start to drift back off his face.
Emelia looked back at him as she walked. He had already repositioned it over his forehead, leaving half his face in darkness. “Chides will not make it less true.”
She looked forward once more. “That might be so. But what kind of a princess am I that I haven’t seen the world outside my father’s gates?” Her eyes absorbed the world around her.
Jameson remained silent.
She laughed. “See, even you see that it’s odd.
[He mumbled an incantation, a red glow surfaced out of the dirt path leading ahead of them. He looked at her. “Hungry?”]
He mumbled an incantation, a red glow surfaced out of the path ahead of them. He looked at her as rooted vegetables sprang out of the ground and into the small pack at his hip. “Hungry?”
This is part of the cluster f*** of stories and plot bunnies that I had seven to eight years ago. They are creeping up on me again, and thus why I am again at this blog.
Tell me what you think.
So, I am developing my character of protagonistic proportions. He’s going to be 13 years old. He’s going to be approximately 5′ with dirty blonde/light brown hair and light blue eyes. A birdlike face, that is kind of cone shaped with a small button nose at the apex and flat, nonprotruding cheekbones that are neither speckled with freckles or clear.
So far that’s what I’ve got… Leave some love…
Been writing a redo of my past… More specifically my romantic past.
It’s going to stay between one Beta reader and myself for now.
With the eventual finish … I may or may not decide to publish it for the world under a special pen name.
But this is what I’ve been up to. Every other story including the blog novel have been placed on the back burner for now.
This is also a selfish project. It is to be a way of closure of giving up a certain dream…. or an opportunity to take a chance on something new and shiny.
So basically I’m putting this out there because things have shifted. Plus, I felt like sharing!!!
Anyone starting or finishing a new goal!? Comment!!!!
Here is some Cover Art Inspiration for my blogged novel writing process.
I am starting this Blog Novel from scratchity-scratch-scratch. And I’m going to be dragging you all along for the ride. I hope everyone (myself not excluded) learn something by the end of this…” feat”.
Without much pain, confusion or luck… this could get boring. Hopefully much of all three will be here.
Feel free as always to post comments, ideas, or jump start a story planning discussion on each of these posts as I suffer happily through the planning process of writing a story, while all of you watch.
I’m excited. More now than before.
LET ME DO THIS, MUSE OF CREATIVITY!! Hear me and give me lots of love an encouragement.
I must warn you though… Even though I’m blogging my process, plans and eventually the first 30 pages of my drafts and final copy…
Let the fun begin!!
Post below to tell me your thoughts on my cover art …
I want to write a book about something truly original and interesting. Day in and day out, I sit at my laptop staring at a blinking cursor on a white screen. I think, ‘Maybe fantasy. Maybe romance.‘ But the two genres don’t quite cut it. The problem is that I can’t think of a good idea to launch off of. The more I think about not having a concept the more frustrated I become.
I want to write for the various Children audiences. I want to write series. Ones that grow in length, complexity, and development with the reader in each installment. I want the first book to start out short and sweet and simple. Then each book sequel fleshing out and out. Maybe even growing into a connected Young Adult’s series.
Or maybe it would just be a young children’s series.
I want the point of view of the protagonist and the antagonist to switch back and forth.
I would like to craft a well planned story. I like reading books that have back-story details worked into the entire novel, in the parts where it’s most useful and not left to chance.
The first part of the first novel needs a bang that sucks readers in rather than gently grabbing their hands on a casual stroll down back story lane.
I want it to be interesting to write, and interesting to read.
Do you have any wishful thinking when it comes to your writing goals and plot ideas?
