Have Query- Next project

Story Teller coverSo I am in the process of Querying my narrative non-fiction Novel The Angels Within, long process and learning tons. I find sites like Query Shark, Query Tracker, and Writers Digest invaluable.

But the best thing is I can concentrate on writing fiction now. I have interest in my Dystopian romance trilogy so need to lock down the first draft. I started working seriously on this during NANOWRMO last November.  I am at 90,000 plus words and Chapter Twenty Three so far.

My critique group is very encouraging and I think helpful in catching all my little mistakes. Along with the curious questions about each character, they are a tremendous resource to keep me on track. I love hearing what about this person or that  person as if they were real.  To think this entire story was the result of a dream is amazing. I can see the whole think in my mind playing like a movie. I hope it will be done in the style of Divergent.

Set in 2250 in the dome covering what used to be NYC Shall is the official Historian of York Circle. Newton the Second wants Shall to help with a project, right after her childhood hero has been executed. She has to put her misgivings aside and work with the man who signed Milton’s death sentence to save the city as they know it.

And I have two more planets to consider and their stories. I’m pulling out old documents and reworking the entire story arch. Just goes to show you when you write THE END on one piece It should only start Chapter One of the next!

Write On, Diana

 

 

 

More

There is always more. More to write, more to learn and more to focus on. Last night I was woke with a dream. I had been contemplating a story line in a futuristic novel I am writing and I couldn’t get it out of my head. So at 3:45 am I took a pen and scribbled some of the things I could remember from the dream.

In the dystopian society  of 2250, it all came into place. Library’s, knowledge and communication as we know it is a thing of the past. Because survival took front stage after the devastation of the planet. Obesity and disease were gone, only the strong could survive.  But how did the world recoup from the Wars?

I have an idea a what if… an inkling of how and who was paramount to the remapping and renewing of the society.

Now to get it all down, that is the struggle. I had to record it somewhere, Trey Rockefeller ancestor of the family in old NYC could work. But the twist? There are several Dome city’s across the globe and he was involved in raising them all. Why? That is another twist to be revealed in a future book in the series of the world I am creating.

Book one I believe will be called the History Tellers.
