For Hailey ~ First Draft
My first original novel project, written with the One Year Adventure Novel curriculum. Currently on 3 of 24 chapters.
Gregory and his little sister Hailey accidentally time travel when they crash-land on a strange professor’s work. Stuck in 878 A.D. Wessex, a land on the brink of war with invading Danes, they try to make the best of a bad situation. Then their village is raided by vikings and Hailey is kidnapped. Hot on the trail to rescue her, Gregory discovers that not only is the life of his sister at stake, but so is the entire history of the world as they know it.
I Forgot ~ First Draft
My 2016 NaNoWriMo novel, based off of the idea a friend and I came up with when we were goofing off.
Nearing completion at 55,000 words, as well as plotting the re-write.
Clara has no memories. Well, not exactly. She can remember everything quite clearly… so long as it happened after May 17th. From May 16th back, everything is blank. Her family tells her it’s because of a nasty fall, and she accepts that. Then, one day, she bumps into a stranger in the park, a stranger who calls her by a different name.
Clara is introduced to a whole world living under the city she calls home. A world of people who live out their lives in secret, all because they worship someone called “God”. A world of people who seem to know who Clara is.
Will she willingly forget them, willingly go back to her comfortable existence above ground? Or will she stay and remember? And if she stays… what happens then?
NaNoWriMo // Week Three
Untitled “smoothie” Story – Outlining
My second novel written using the One Year Adventure Novel curriculum.
Still on the “Map” portion of the curriculum, still outlining and plotstorming.
Nina’s world is turned upside down when her father is killed in a hit-and-run, but things only get worse when she is kidnapped by her father’s estranged brother Matt.
Once Christopher learns that his little godsister is being held for ransom, he takes off after her – with her mother in the backseat.
Can Nina escape, and can Christopher and her mother find her before it’s too late?
