Sadly, I am one of those desperate writers. I've left my NaNo '08 novel lying in a corner after I tore through it and despaired of any writing talent I possessed. I aim to get back to it eventually, of course. I'm simply procrastinating. But damn it, I will get that out. Most definitely. Yeah. Sure. Uh huh. All right, all right... I'm going to need some prodding, no doubt. But still. It's a trilogy. I want to get out a single book first, right? Right?
With books like "Fallen" and "Hush, Hush" slowly absorbing space in the YA spots, I'm going to need to hurry if I want to ride this trend out. So, you want to have the next Twilight? Get your crappy angel novel out soon - oh yes, don't forget to have horrible writing and annoying characters who only call themselves angels. They're not, really.
The only thing that comforts me is that all this angel crap is taking the "Oh, look at me, I'm a fallen angel going to fall in love with a girl" angle. I am not taking that angle, no way. I'd have to work hard to find a mortal character in my book. And it will be awesome.
Reference List of Current Works
- The Senses - Began this one Thanksgiving of eighth grade. I actually really liked it. Should finish it, I'm only 40 pages in. Planned trilogy.
- Tarnished Angels - NaNoWriMo novel of 2008. Finished, around 54,000 words. Stuffed it away when I actually read it. Now I want to completely rewrite it. That's depressing. Planned trilogy, then stand-alone, then...:?
- The Invisibles - NaNoWriMo novel of 2009. Finished at 75,000 words. Letting it sit before I rip into it anew. Stand alone, with possible prequel/late sequel.
