This WIP novel started almost exactly at the beginning of 2015. It was sort of a New Year's Resolution. For a long time I've had ideas but I'd let my self-doubt get in the way. This time I just wrote in spite of that and kept writing. Title: The Promised Land Synopsis: Eve, a woman that forever felt limited in her regular life, spent her time playing MMOs. But she finds out that an MMO called "The Promised Land" is far more than just a game. It's a real world consisting of magic, gods, unusual creatures, and potential danger for Eve as well as Earth itself. There are other characters like Eve's brother-in-law who ends up becoming her apprentice in The Promised Land. As well as a succubus that Eve unexpectedly forms a romantic relationship with. I also love the idea of having deities as these powerful beings who rule The Promised Land like kings and queens. And yet they have very human flaws and problems. I'm 20+ chapters in but bare in mind it's all pretty rough. I go back and forth a lot trying to decide what I want to do with the story and characters. That means quite a few pages, half chapters, and full chapters, that I've ended up putting aside and may not end up using. But I always save everything just in case. What I think I might do is use a POV character format similar to Game Of Thrones. That would allow me to flesh out the villains and other significant characters more. I've already done this somewhat so it's what I'm drawn to doing. On the other hand, it would probably make the project vastly more complicated. My hope is to make a fairly unique, fleshed out world with meaningful story lines that could carry into a series of novels. I doubt I'll be finished with this first book anytime soon because I'm very wet around the ears as a writer. But the main thing is that I've wrote more than I ever thought I could. And regardless of how rudimentary my talents may be, I like some of what I've written, and I've become invested in realizing this story. So over time I think I can improve and if nothing else, create a story that is worthwhile to me.
