Exams are over,
'Tis the season for discussing pantsers and plotters, and to be honest I've always identified with the former. Except for this ms all the ideas just kept spilling out during exam season, and I ended up writing so many character and plot details I decided to just plan. So here we go.
This new WIP is called Matryoshka, and takes place in the same world as my now-shelved ms Shadowplay. Some of the ways I'm framing it:
- Charming boys and the brave princesses who'd die for them.
- Two golden-hearted boys in a world of steel-hearted ladies.
- East meets West. Revenge meets politics. Murder meets mundane. Gunpowder meets everyone.
- Star Wars if Luke Skywalker went into politics to take down the Emperor.
If that catches your fancy, I'll be sharing bonus scenes in my monthly letter next week to the world's best takeout grasshoppers, plus a chance to read it!
Thoughts on Thomas and Matryoshka? Are you in Camp NaNo?
