I’ve managed to complete another draft of this novella today. I am able to do the entire 42 A4 pages within a day 🙂 At just over 25,000 words I think this story will be ready within a few months time 🙂
I’m also in the process of deciding what genres to place it in. I’m not sure if it meets the requirements for a dystopia, but it might as the world is quite authoritarian and harsh, though the people in it are not.
It has war and post-war settings, but it is also leaning towards it being a political drama. As the individual involved is both affected by and can affect the outcome of the civil war and unrest around her.
It’s almost over. Since 2014 this story has been floating around in my head and been sitting in my USB. It’s been perpetually been worked on a little bit only to be pushed aside for another work that I prefer. But I’m finally in the latter stages of editing. I can’t wait for it to be out there.
The other day I dropped my smartphone into the toilet a few weeks ago 😦 But at least I still have my old cheap phone I had from when I first arrived in Edinburgh. Now I can’t be distracted by Instagram until I get a new phone.
Currently, I’ve got this new space adventure idea churning in my head. The main novel, which I’m planning on calling Fine Tune, is still forming in my mind. But I’ve already written just under 12,000 words for a prequel. So far the two books will be under the banner name of ‘Odine King’s Space Adventures‘. The genres of the series are sci-fi, young adult, paranormal and space adventure.
The prequel is more thriller and mystery because of the main character, Odine King, is in the process of learning to utilize her psychic powers. Initially, she goes into a psychic research study with the hopes of finding her father’s killer. He’s been missing just under a year and things are not looking good. However as her powers begin to grow and she starts to control them, the story takes a darker turn as another ghost makes contact with her. This begins her journey of amateur detective in the cold case of a missing, presumed dead young woman.
I’m not sure how many more words it will be, but I think I’m about 1/2 to 2/3 complete for a draft 🙂
