Hello guys! This is that reason I hinted at when I said there wouldn’t be any CC posts in June. IT’S JUNOWRIMO TIME. *gulps*
Okay, so, originally, I had planned to write a first draft of my newest plot bunny, Crown of Thorns, but…well, that kinda fell through because I didn’t finish my outline in time. I wasn’t even close, actually. *face-palm*
So, I came up with the wonderful idea of working on several plot bunnies aside from just one. (Which is probably a good idea, considering they’re all very close to eating me alive…I FEED THEM. WHAT MORE DO THEY WANT.) So, I’m going rogue this year and writing a bunch of outlines for my novels instead of…the actual novels. *heh-heh*
I’m trying to go with a way more laidback feel, so as not to get too stressed out this summer. (I got a volunteer job at the library! So I’m trying to get my license and…yeah, it’s going to be an interesting summer. XD ) I’m super excited about it, and I thought I’d give you guys a bit of an overview of what I’m working at this June:
Crown of Thorns
My poor little story. First it thought it was going to be a nice and simple short story. HAHAHAHAHA nope. Okay, so maybe it would’ve adjusted to being a novel, but then I actually started getting the intense, emotional FEELS about it, and then, well…Let’s just say I’m not the nicest author to this book. BUT IT WILL END WELL I PROMISE. *slaps hand over heart*
Here’s a little blurb thing, I don’t know:
All of Jerrick’s life has been him being overshadowed by his slightly older twin, Merrick, the high prince of Lauderdale. Outbreaks of a strange thorny disease have been taking people’s lives in their sleep. After a particularly dangerous accident, the king and Merrick set off to warn the Ruler of Fanastasia.
But when the king returns, Merrick is missing. The whole kingdom goes into uproar. Everyone except Jerrick. He has a feeling something is up.
So with his sharp intellect and unusual weapons, he sets off to find his brother. But the longer he’s gone, the stranger things seem. And soon, things become more dangerous than Jerrick could ever have imagined.
That probably didn’t make sense. I’m still trying to figure this thing out myself, so…
Magic…Trench…Coat…(It just sounds silly typing it out… XD )
Oh goodness, guys, I don’t even know with this story… XD Well, I guess there’s a little backstory. I once had this really weird nightmare about a creepy old house that I was trapped in and people were chasing me. Afterwards the next morning I didn’t really think anything of it. But then, almost a year later, I had it again. I don’t know why. But this time, I managed to rein a little more control and it didn’t turn into a nightmare. At least, it wasn’t scary. And so the dream turned into this story.
That was really boring. But anywho, I don’t really have a blurb, so here’s a…little tidbit of what the story’s like:
Sydney (our main character) bumps into a man while invisible. They talk a bit.
“How come I haven’t seen you around?” he said.
Sydney said nothing.
“Oh, right, stupid question.”
“Oh, and it’d probably best if you didn’t tell anyone about me. They might think you’re…” Sydney spun a finger around her head and then realized Howard couldn’t see her.
He evidently got her meaning though. “Oh, I won’t.”
Yeah, it’s basically nonsense. But it’s fun nonsense, so I’m sticking with it. 🙂
Wanted for Time (The Six Thieves #1)
This is one of those ideas that keeps you up at night because it plays like a movie in your head, and you HAVE. TO. FINISH. IT. O_O Needless to say, I’ve been wanting to write this thing for a long time, but I kept putting it off (because I’m a professional procrastinator. Email me for tips). So, I’m FINALLY writing the outline! It follows one of my favorite characters of my creation. He’s a character in three of my other trilogies, so I already know him pretty well. This is his backstory, of sorts. How he came to be the way he is. And it’s a very interesting story… XD
Here’s a blurb of sorts:
Drilidric lives with his family in a small village in Fanastasia. It’s a nice life, living there, going to school with his friends, and causing mischief with his unusual amount of Gifts.
When Drilidric and his friends are excepted into the prestigious school known as The Gifted, they’re ecstatic. This is what Dril always wanted, the perfect way to show his family that he’s really a good boy.
But one night, after a peculiar encounter, Dril finds a book sitting on his bed. Never before had he seen a book. They weren’t real, Dril had always been told. But there one sat before him. Curious, he takes it the librarian, who then cautiously shows him a dangerous secret. Before he knows it, Dril is spiraling deeper and deeper into a scheme he never dreamt possible. But what’s one little theft? Especially to save time?
More things that don’t make sense.
I’m also giving myself permission to work on these two as well:
There’s also a couple Wattpad stories I’m considering too. Look at me, writing maniac here. 😛
This one’s about a guy named Drew who has a bunch of friends who like to go out and…*ahem* drink. So. Not the most pleasant setting, but it’s good, I swear! Things get interesting when a new bar opens where you can get a mysterious new substance called vuvine. Hint: it’s not good. Things start happening, and well, Drew has to fix things with the help of a man called Mr. Doctor. I may or may not have stolen this from Doctor Strange. DON’T JUDGE ME OKAY.
This one’s about my boy Jake (from The D). It’s a little backstory and it’s basically heart-wrenching, but I love it anyway. Because I apparently love having my feels punched in the gut. Am I alone? Okay. It’s hard to explain without being spoilery, but there’s a car accident, and thankfully Jake survives, but…things are different now. Yeah.
I’m going to try and schedule a bunch of fun posts ahead of time, so I’m not scrambling this summer to get you guys content. I have lots of ideas, so there’s something.
And I’m also going to be sharing my experience and possibly some
horribly unedited snippets this JuNoWriMo.
I also plan to post about my time at the Young Writer’s Workshop that’s being held in Minneapolis. I’m super stoked, because one of my all-time favorite authors is going to be there…Shannon Hale!! 😀
Finishing and Editing Imprint
Yes. I need to do this at some point in my life. Let’s hope it’s this June. XD I’m so close, and yet I keep putting it off. Like I said, professional procrastinator here.
Yeah, so those are my June plans. They’re really loose, so hopefully I’ll feel more relaxed about it, since I’ll be busy working at the library this summer. Wish me luck, and I hope you have a fabulous June! ❤
