That's my super-eloquent way of saying that I'm actually going to steal her idea. It'll be interesting, given last week's confession that I suck at scheduled blogging and things, but I'm going to give it a shot.
So, starting next Monday, I'm going to be posting a chapter of my new project, Chasing Lightning, right over here. Hopefully, that'll mean a chapter of fiction on Mondays, a normal blog post on Wednesdays, and a post for Beyond the Trope on Fridays. (Oh, didn't I mention that I'm the Friday blogger over there? No? Surprise!)
That's a lot of writing, and I have to be honest: I'm a little bit intimidated. Chasing Lightning is an idea that popped into my head yesterday and isn't planned out at all. I have no plot yet, no character arc, no real world building, nothing. Plus, I'm still not sure what I want to talk about for normal blogs, or how to gather those ideas. So, it's going to be a very interesting experiment, to say the least.
A little about Chasing Lightning so far:
It's a YA speculative fiction story about a young woman named Omega, who was born with the power to, apparently, manipulate the weather around her. She's spent most of her life in a laboratory under scientific supervision, but when the chance to escape presents itself, she takes it without question. Only once she's outside does she realize that the world is a much bigger, much more dangerous place than she ever imagined.
Tune in Monday for the first chapter!
