Legion- I have a prolougue already written, and I'm a couple of pages into chapter one. I know where I want to go with Legion, but I just didn't have the inspiration I needed to continue. For some reason, I can come up with alot of ideas when I sit down with a computer rather than pen and paper, and I haven't had the meens to do that. So that's why I'm especially excited about having a netbook soon.
The Plot- It's going to have some very dark and serious subject matter-it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea. It will deal with murder, and small part of it(or big-depends on how you look at it) deals with rape(of a male not female). Both of which have to do with the past of the main character. Basically, it's about his life and how he's dealing and coping with his past and how it's affecting him, then there's some complicated backstories that have to deal with some of his friends and his family and how they're connected. It has a main character but the story's not just about him, it's about a bunch of other people and some of the chapters may even be written completely in their point of view. The plot would sound really complicated if I tried to explain all of it in it's entirety, but if you just thought about it it wouldn't seem that way.
This story is my baby. It's already my favorite and I'll work on it more than the others.
Shades of Gray- I'm not as serious about this one. It doesn't have an actual plot, it really has to deal with my main character(who has a alot of friends that are more like family)meeting someone, falling in love, his friends don't like the new person in his life taking up his time, and over a long period of time finally come to terms with it all and accept his new love, and then they pretty much have some difficult trials they have to go through in life, and their basically having to fight to stay together.
Like I said, I really don't know where I'm going with this one. I started it when I was a little younger then when I started Legion or my other story. Some serious inspiration is needed for this one.
Untitled- I think I know where I'm going with this one a little more than Shades but not as well as I do Legion. It's about this couple that decides to have many kids(they have all boys to make it worse) against their parents warnings which ruins each of their relationships with their parents, then when the oldest is about 19 or older(not sure yet) they decide to split. The dad goes his way and the mom sticks around for a little while but eventually drifts off doing her own thing, traveling all over the place, but she still manages to wire them money. So pretty much they raise themselves and the older ones have to help raise the younger ones. For the most part it deals with just one the brothers(there are about 8 to 11-again not sure). It's about his struggle through life, he's not as much of a troublemaker as he is troubled. Eventually he runs away and then another brother younger than him starts to show the same sort of behavior which leads to them all having sort of an intervention that also involves their brother that ran away, and after everythings been said that needs to be said, they all become aware of why some of the decisions were made in their family and why things are the way they were. This story may also deal with some mentions of rape(depends on where I go with this exactly).
This one has actually been many years in the making, for years now these little scenerios would pop up in my head and would stay in my mind, and I have a wide imagination so it was like I was constantly thinking of these things and playing them over in my mind, so now I'm taking all that and writing a book about it. And I personally think it will be very good when I'm finished.
So besides my other nonfiction story about my family, that's all my stories. I'm excited to start writing more on them, and I hope I get some good feedback and critiques on them.
