In my previous ROW80 post I think I stated my long term goal clearly enough, I want to finish the stories I start. After listing all of them I was extremely overwhelmed by the number of ongoing projects on my computer and in the various notebooks stashed in my drawers. I never realised how many story ideas I’ve started and abandoned halfway through. So I have decide to pick three novel ideas/projects and focus my writing on solely those three. When I finish one I may add another. So I willing be working on the following projects:
A contemporary/magic realism novella, following two musicians who find themselves having one of the strangest nights of their life and cannot shake the feeling that it might be due to the presence of the full moon.
Dust and Dawn
A multiple perspective fantasy novel based in a secondary world called Sal Dora.
When the crown prince of Sal Dora is murder while on a diplomatic mission to the Siren Kingdom, the fate of Sal Dora is dramatically changed. Alliances are broken, political marriages are destroyed and a new ruler must be crowned. But the Queen must have her revenge.
When a desert girl receives the power of a Guardian who dies before choosing a successor, a grave responsibility is forced on her. She is thrust into world filled with mysterious magic and complicated politics. Her job is to keep good and evil in balance and to make sure the rightful ruler succeeds the throne.
Still trying to figure this one out. All I know is that it will be an adaptation/retelling of Sinbad and it will most likely be my Nanowrimo project.
- Must focus on creative writing for at least one hour everyday. (350-500 words)
- Finish one short story every month.
- Post a blog a week (besides ROW80)
I feel like these goals are reasonable enough and that they won’t interfere with my academics or a job later on in the year.
