Hello! Today I’d like to tell you about the two novels I am writing.
If you know me well, I think you know that writing is a big part of my life.
Nothing makes me feel the way I feel when I put those words on the page, make worlds, create lively characters, and have the greatest adventure ever without even leaving my seat. And if I become an author, I can get paid to do it!
Just think of it, the Bible, the divine Message of God, the way He chose to talk to us and communicate with us, was brought to us through words. And now I can take words too, to craft my own stories, my own messages, and my own projects. I hope through this medium I can bring glory to God too.
I’m only just starting to become a better writer and I’ve only written one novel so far. So hang on, my writing journey has only just begun; it won’t stop here.
Enjoy— whether you presently like reading fiction or not!
Fear of the Betrayer
This project is a sequel to my first project, Fear of the Enemy. I’m planning on making this a trilogy based on the theme of fear (as the title suggests), following the lives of the main character, Alex, who is scared of everything, and his twin sister Emmy, who never gets scared.
In the first book, a band of trolls kidnaps Alex, Emmy, and their mother.
The second book, Fear of the Betrayer (the one I am writing right now), portrays the struggle of Alex’s town, Greendale when they are assaulted by an army led by a betrayer who used to be Alex’s best friend. Through the struggle, Alex battles within himself as to whether it is better to try to change a friend, or fight him.
I plan on finishing the first draft by July, and I am currently less than 10% into it. However, I think my goal is not too far away.
The Dragon’s Curse
(No cover made YET)
This is one of the longer projects I am planning. I think it will be about 250 ~ 300 pages (if that’s even possible).
This is about a 15-year-old girl (whom I haven’t named yet but we’ll call her “E” here) who lives in a fallen city. Accidents, disasters, and terrors come every day, all because of a curse. This curse was struck on the town 8 years before, by a golden statue of a dragon. E lives in an orphanage, but one day, on her 16th birthday, she is expelled from the orphanage because she, according to the orphanage rules, is a full-grown adult.
And as a punishment for breaking another cruel rule, she has to live right next to the dragon— the very dragon that has thrown the town into turmoil.
I am about 40% into this one, at 30,000 words.
So, those are my books! What did you think of them? Which story interests you more? Tell me if you have any suggestions or comments about the ideas!
Bye, and God bless! Have the best day!
