    What are you working on right now?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by 123456789, Nov 6, 2014.

    Just curious. Don't answer, if secretive. Try to describe it in a line or two. For example,

    Genre: Paranormal romance.
    Synopsis: A human girl named Kate must give birth to the chosen one, who will lead the vampires to world domination. (this is a made up example)

    Just a piece of gay erotica, at the moment.

    I'm also working on a novella about two teenage boys on a far-off planet that has unique weather conditions, and how their relationship changes due to their different reactions to those weather conditions.

    Genre: Teenage Angst and Drama and Such
    Synopsis: Aftermath of a tragedy and someone who thinks they are unaffected by it

    I wrote a bit of the start already and posted it. First time trying to do a full story in 1st person(I think).

    Genre: Romance and Drama and Such
    Synopsis: 1st Person narrative about someone evaluating their relationship and deciding how to move forward

    Really... really want to do 1st Person stuff

    Genre: Comedy and Aliens and Such
    Synopsis: Following up on a short story I wrote awhile ago

    Genre: Appoco-Whaaaa??
    Synopsis: It's hard to describe, but I've had the idea in my head for sometime. Basically, the Moon is gone and has been for centuries. The story starts out with a chance encounter as the two characters are thrust into trying to set the world right. There would be a few fantasy elements in it; I keep closing my eyes and picturing artistic landscapes and skies, pretty surreal dreams about the world without a Moon is what caused me to want to write this. More serious in nature than most of the stuff I'm used to.

    Since I've completely abandoned my nano-novel, I've gone back to an old one.
    I suppose it's a paranormal...friendship....thing?
    Young man comes out of hospital, been treated for various psychological problems his whole life as he sees and hears things, moves to rural Wales, meets the ghost of a girl murdered about 130 odd years ago and realises he doesn't have a medical problem. Or something like that.

    Sounds like an amazing indie film.

    I'm personally working on my novel still.
    Genre: Modern Post-Apocalyptic Light Fantasy (Or something)

    In the back of my mind I'm considering a small book of short stories of original modern fairy tales.

    Rewriting the second book in a romance series to make it fit the tone of the series better.

    I hate rewriting. Aargh.

    Genre: nonfiction
    Synopsis: an essay about the legal issues of sustainable energy, particularly issues related to agriculture.

    I want to say that the essay reads like a novel, but let's keep it real: it's as boring as it sounds.

    Yes. I don't know if this qualifies as a romance novel since the first half of the book deals with her grieving her husband. Then, she feels guilty for falling for another man.

    That man should feel guilty, seriously! I would be so angry reading this (your story sounds evocative that's a good thing)

    Genre(s): young adult? new adult? Spirituality and magic realism play pretty significant roles. A lot of time is spent solving a mystery.

    Synopsis: One day, all memory and evidence of the existence of a young woman is erased. No one can form new memories of her. She can talk to people for a short time, but they soon forget that they had the conversation. She investigates the mystery of why this happened to her. Her efforts lead her to affect the lives of those around her in ways she never imagined.

    I'm working on a SciFi project about the drama surrounding humanity's first attempt to colonize space (specifically, setting up moon bases). A private company is building their own space program in secret, while the government does their best to undermine the program, up to and including sabotage, because they are afraid of such a radical change to society.

    I'm working on two: A reboot of War of the Worlds and a non-fiction young adults book called Things that are True (from a Certain Point of View).

    The second is basically a humorous collection of things I wish I'd known when I was a young teenager, and wish that my parents and teacher had been brave enough to tell me. IE: "Cooking and sex are interchangeable skills."
