Catching the Right Idea

There’s been a disturbance in Leekston. Suzie is unaware of it at first, but as the repercussions echo throughout her home life and threaten her family life, she begins asking questions. What she slowly uncovers not only answers long unanswered questions, but makes her realize how deep the deception goes. Will Suzie learn the truth? Will the forces behind it all be able to stop her investigation? And how does a man with amnesia fit into all this?

Got some in over lunch and motivated myself to pull it out for some evening work as well. And would ya look at that: 10k already. *beam* Not too bad considering I started this book on April 11th. There was a lot of stop-and-go as I fooled around with what exactly I wanted to say, and how to interweave it all into one coherent storyline. I’ve had a lot of interesting new plot twists pooling around my mind, as well as some much-needed insight on the ultimate villain of it all. Because there always has to be an ultimate villain, don’t you think? Anyway this series started out all realism with a splash of the oh-so-dangerous supernatural, and now it’s becoming more magical realism in my mind’s eye as the story unfurls. And I think I’ve come up with a semi-decent title for the series, which speaks of it’s strong fantasy core: The Wyrms of Nire. Now will that keep? Will Nire and the said Wyrms keep? Not a clue. Everything at this point is a proverbial toss-up as ideas come from every which way.

The difficult part on my end is figuring out when’s a good time to catch one and call it my own.
