Anyone else sending their characters on a journey filled with danger, twists, life lessons, and borderline-insane characters? :)

Heeheehee!O.o

I'm Kat. My JulNo novel is science-fiction, but it certainly qualifies for the adventure genre. Why, oh why is it impossible to have just one genre?? So I'm hanging out in sci-fi, adventure, and Christian fiction forums.

I'm hoping I can get some help here. What I have planned to write is more of a novella, and won't make the word count. I'm hoping to add to the adventure aspect. And find some subplots. So please, yak away about your juicy parts some I can get some ideas.;)

Of course, I'll have to transpose them to another solar-system that's colliding with yet another solar-system.

I know, my story fits around everywhere to XD hahaha

Pretty much, I guess my story has a lot of stuff you'd probably find in any old action movie; fighting, a high-speed car chase, and an almost death-defying escape from prison. Just stuff to get the adrenaline going.

I just hope when I write it, it all works out as well as I'm seeing it in my head!

Mine is going to be mostly adventure, with a little of other genres too. Of course some romance, because I can't seem to write a story without it.

My main character is going to be escaping her war torn nation over the vast mountains, where she's not even sure if anything exists on the other side. There will be fighting during her journey for sure with all the hate between the two races in my story. Near death experiences are likely. :)

Genre crossover is pretty inevitable. :)

amor_et_concordia, your story sounds pretty entertaining! I pretty much just love strong female characters who can beat down their enemies just as well as any guy could.

Heh, Amor_et_concordia, we're in the same boat. I can't write anything without SOME romance. It just doesn't seem realistic without it somewhere.

And mine for part of it is adventure. So I guess it counts. Near-Death experience(s) guaranteed!

Hmm. And my FMC isn't exactly helpless... but not exactly the strongest either. You see. She's human, but her opponents are vampires. So it's good to have an elf and vampire by her side.

Yeah, she's got to be strong, growing up in a war zone. I feel like in that condition, you'd either grow really strong from it, or really weak and scared. Since the latter would not make for a great main character, strong it is! I haven't even planned how the romance bit will fit in, but it will no doubt find a way in!

And Cheyenne, I love your avatar!

Hey everyone. The name's Sammie!!

My story is about the world falling into the dephs of Hell and it's up to a group of 5, kids, to restore all peace. That means gathering 6 different iteams around the world and outsmarting the enemy; the Devil hisself! Of course along the way, there has to be a little romance or what kind of story would it be?!

I'm not even sure what genre my story is going to be, but it will definitely have adventure aspects, so I'm making a point of checking out these forums frequently.

Basically, my novel is about a girl named Juliet, who is a Writer (what better story to write for a WriMo. :)). In her world, Writers are special in that their stories really happen, and their Characters are real people. Juliet, out of curiosity and just plain stupidity, decides to Write about her world - but only if Writing wasn't a gift. In short, she Writes about our world. But, that means her world ceases to exist and.... yadda yadda yadda.... has to fix it. I'm still working out the details. I'm looking forward to it though.

This may apply?
My characters are Mut and Lily. Lily has a bad past that isn't that bad, and Mut likes cars.
They're heading to Arizona right now (hm, coincidence? I live in AZ myself...) and somehow they'll end up in a twentieth dimension. <==adventure
OR
they will roller-skate.

I woke up at 6am to continue writing and stopped at 7am so I could get ready for work (incorporating writing into my morning routine = win!). Now I'm back and, hopefully, writing until about 9pm.

Mine is about a girl living in a sort of alternate-historical version of London in 1893. She's got a secret, and she goes on this schmexy steampunk esque airship to travel to somewhere that might explain what's going on.

And then everything goes wrong :)

It's YA, Adventure, Fantasy, Romance (IKR? I can't write without it!), and it's rather addicting!

Like many other people's mine seems to fit into multiple categories. It's a yet untitled novel following seven different characters all fighting on the same side in a civil war. Each one has different motives for joining and have completely different stories and the novel follows how they all manage to work together even if the only thing they have in common is the side they are on.

I suppose my story fits under this category, but it fits under a couple more probably. My roadtrip-adventure-characters Jack and Jeff and internal-headworld-adventure-characters Marduk and Tomka are supposed to parallel eachother or something.
