First of all, I would like to take a moment of silence for all the victims and families affected by what happened in Las Vegas last night. Things like this really devastate me and it’s hard to move on, but we all do for those who can’t. Most times I find it difficult to continue doing what I was doing before I found out about such tragic news. But then I think, I will dedicate my abilities to those who can’t finish theirs. If that makes sense.
I know I’ve been slacking on posting but I have been quite busy with my other passion, Sevenia Studios. Now that my muse is back, I have been going back and forth between two new stories. One is from famed Elite S.E.V.E.N. Agent Jennifer Long. That story is being told from her point of view and it’s going to feature the beginnings of her life as an agent. This one is fun. I find I actually like writing in first person and reading in first person when I could never stand either before. Not until I read Burn from my favorite author Lars Emmerich. He tells the tale of Homeland Security Agent Sam Jameson now in a different life as well. He inspires me so much. Him and CJ Lyons.
The other story is about a young woman named Doctor Jane Cathaway. I was sitting down one day and her name just came to me. Just the name, nothing else. I wrote a chapter out to see where she’d go in third person. And so far, she is complicated to say the least lol. She has a deep, rich history surrounded by one tragic event. All my characters seem to have some tragic event lol. But I think that’s good cause life isn’t a bowl of peaches for everyone. Here is what I came up with for the logline and book blurb for Jane. Thoughts? I’d appreciate some comments on having tragic characters. Do they get boring after awhile or do you find them worth investing your time in?
