Writing so fast and furiously that you know you're making mistakes but you don't care because you're writing 'in the moment' as things happen in the book and you're as much in the plot as your character.

I just did something I’ve never done before. I feel naughty, a bit guilty, but I’m so damned excited and pleased that I did.

I wrote the finale scene for my current WIP out of sequence.

No, but wait! I have reasons!

I’ve had that scene written in my head since I started writing the book. Lately I’ve been forgetting crucial things, and the finale was n... Read more of this blog post »

Ruthless (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
3 chapters   —   updated Aug 16, 2015 08:23PM
Description: This is the first draft of my novel, Ruthless, which is currently open for votes on soopllc.com - vote for it here! http://soopllc.com/blog/book-ideas/ruthless-aprille-legacy/?doing_wp_cron=1439779679.8380670547485351562500 <b>A dying country finds the push it needs to topple itself into revolution when a young woman steps forward and begins it all.</b> The year is 1880 and the Queen of England has gone mad. After decommissioning her own royal fleet of airships and sending her youngest daughter into exile, the Queen sets about building her own army of killer cyborgs for one purpose; world domination. However, youngest daughters don’t usually go into exile quietly, and Victoria Hamlyn fits snugly into that category. With an ex-airship pirate and a prison guard who is tired of indifference at her back, she begins her campaign to win back the throne from her mother. But seeds of discord spread themselves throughout the newborn rebellion as they battle a Queen whose intelligence is only matched by her daughter’s. With the killer cyborgs spreading panic over the capital, the rebellion is joined by those who have suffered long enough at the hands of a psychopath. But as Victoria’s power amongst the people grows, so does the distrust of her closest colleagues. For some of them, the resemblance to her mother is too unnerving to trust. Both women will do whatever it takes to destroy the other. And both are completely, utterly, ruthless.

Please tell me it's still around..

Cheyenne Oh my god, we should totally do a joint project! It would epic! Alright. You should message me about this.

Cheyenne Oh my god, we should totally do a joint project! It would epic! Alright. You should message me about this.

Cheyenne Actually, ruthless inspired me. Not that there are zombies in Ruthless. But it was the whole tone that made me want to do something vaguely dystopian, or apocalyptic... and viola! I had to do something zombie-esque!

Cheyenne Aprille! Darling! I was wondering if you could check out my zombie book! heh heh.. I was inspired :3


 ℱℓεüя Wonderful! :D

 ℱℓεüя Heyyy Aprille... so... when you going to get around to writing more of Soul Sun? (:

message 91: by A

A Thanks for the friend request! Ruthless is AMAZING! I'll have to write a proper review this weekend on it. It was so much fun to read! My favorite book is Wuthering Heights or Dean Koontz's Relentless by the way, but Harry Potter comes in a close second!

Cheyenne I'm glad you liked my Marcus chapter :)
Yay for the soon-to-come Ruthless chapter.
And about Night Runners... I'd love to read it, because you're a fantastic writer, but my parents don't really let me read stuff with supernatural or paranormal themes.
I can assure you, though, that it's probably AMAZING, because all your work is.

Cheyenne Wazzup, my friend!

Just informing you that I finally wrote more of Marcus and The World. :)
Also, seriously, dude. I'm waiting for more Ruthless

Yikes...long story. So I liked him because he's the only guy who doesn't use profanity, isn't perverted, and never used drugs. His friend was my friend and then I saw him playing soccer and I was like, "Hey, he's graceful and his kicks are fluid." Then I kinda sorta maybe stalked him? In my defense, I just wanted to see where he went and if he would notice me following him. ANYWAY, so I told one person I liked him, then all my friends-and I do mean all-and then he was supposed to give me my answer for two weeks and then I told Kayla to ask him and he said yes.
Today he ate lunch beside me (:
