Ender in Exile


Might as well just knock off my WriYe thread's title (which is also a knock off of Orson Scott Card's book). Hope ya don't mind, Mr. Card. Thanks a bunch for the names.



I went ahead and made a cool book cover but I'm still a noob at vectors and art in general...

The Blame Game is yet another book of mine themed around how misunderstanding is the root of all of the world's conflict. When it comes to the blame game, no one has as much experience as Meena Sinuo. Her strategy isn't to frame anyone else- on the contrary, she has learned that the best way to protect those she cares about is to take the blame for their crimes. But, how long can she tread over others' responsibilities before they pull her under?

When it comes to the Blame Game, there is one rule: to be able to look Life in the eyes, shake its hand, and say, "Good Game". No rematches, no complaining about luck.


The plans are currently at 6k in length. More info to come later to those who actually give a damn. This book will probably be my first publish attempt. Thank you JulNo for being motivation to actually write in bulk! I won't let you down!

Hey hey, Ender! I'm planning on publishing my July novel, too. x) Here's to hoping we're both successful on that front.

Good luck this month!

Meena checking in! I really like how this is going. It was hard to get used to being the star of a story, but this isn't my first appearance, so the transition was pretty smooth. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it'd be once I got used to it, and now my writer and his readers can finally get into my head and really understand me!

Now now, Meena, let's not forget who made you.

And I'm happy! But you're like a parent to me. You made me and you raised me, but not even you know all there is to know about me! You sure put me in quite the dilema in the first quarter for my first story, but I swear, I'm stronger than you think I am. I'll make it through this!

You're almost one week into the story, dear. Let's not forget that none of my novels are exactly joy rides. Your life won't be as bad as Blue's, but it still won't be very easy. You have another 40,000 words to go- you've only scratched the surface of my master plot.

Can you promise me one thing, though?

What is it, dear?

Will you let me on this forum once in awhile? It's nice to make an appearance outside of Scrivener.

Once a week, I promise. And some day, maybe you'll make an appearance all around the world when I have your story published. Stay strong, honey.

I will. If anyone wants to talk to me while I'm still out of the box, I'd be glad to chat!

Stick with it! I'm going to hold you to that claim of 'publish attempt'. ;)

Naturally. But yeah, I'm sure this will be the one.

How unwise.

Blue, your story's done. It's Meena's turn.

I get it when people are jealous of each other for some things like getting the boy or the job... but Andrew...

My apologies. Penny's birthday got in the way of things and I've been distracted. I swear I'll focus on you some more!

I never thought I'd be jealous of another story's main character. You let her come between us! You're 10k behind because of her!

I'm sorry, but look, you're going to have to work on having a hook in the beginning or no one will want to read your story. Until you can do that for me, I don't see your story going anywhere.

May I advise killing someone on page one? It worked out for me.

Blue, please don't corrupt Meena any more.

Drew! You're pushing it!

I know! I'm sorry, Meena. Real life has been causing me some issues. If it helps, I'm still on the first page of the word count rankings!

So? This year's JulNo community was much smaller than it was in years past. There aren't nearly as many people who stuck with it.

Yeah, I noticed it. But hey, maybe you need to help me out here! Your plot is not easy to write in the slightest.

...

I may not finish your story in one month like I sought out to do, but I promise I'll finish it surely as my motto is "Challenge Accepted".

... I'm sorry for blaming you. I guess if I helped you out then I could have been further along by now. I got distracted, I guess. You set my story up pretty well but I didn't meet you halfway like I promised.

No need to blame yourself. Your problems are my problems too.

I blame myself because that's what I do. Don't try to teach me otherwise

He spent two years on me and he's not done with me yet.

Shut up, Blue. Yours is so difficult and long. 180k is TOO LONG for one story!
