Taking Down the Stars


Taking Down the Stars is a title that I got from the NaNoWriMo Adopt a Title thread from last year. Myself and a friend of mine (Number Negative) are both titling our JulNovels that.

Mine is a combination of post apocalypse and fantasy.

Don't as me to explain it to you, as I don't know yet. I'm figuring it out as I go this year.

EDIT: Inspired by NumberNegative I have made my JulNoNovel's google documents for your viewing pleasure.

You can see them at http://bit.ly/JulNo14

A very fun title! I like stars. :D And it sounds like it will be fun to see how your two novels differ.

Eep!! Maybe try powering through? I've found that the bits that I want to write are always the ones that turn out well, but the bits up to those parts and after fall a bit flat on their faces. Editing is a pain, but it's definitely an option! :D

Aw! Like I said in the games, write anyway. Even if it's crap, sooner or later it'll get better again. Just keep trying and don't give up! You can do it!



Always keep the faith.

Will try to just power through! (Unsure if I'll complete JulNo this year, but I'll have something to show for it even if I have to drag the words out kicking and screaming!)

Oh, and because this is my progress report, the first line as it is written now is

He was running.

Yay for originality! /s

Decided to go with Zane, as it's easier on the eyes and for readers to pronounce. And it's easy to type and hard to screw up. (Though I still love the thought of Will'arth as a name, so I will probably use that one later.)

Managed to finally get passed my block by posting my daily words written (the number anyway) on my blog. (Shameless plug)

Bit of a dodgy intro for my FMC...

An excerpt for anyone interested.

Quote:

After a few blocks, she didn’t even feel the cold anymore. Around a corner, she bumped into a group of men walking the opposite way. She murmured a quiet ‘excuse me’, but they didn’t move. Instead they stood and blocked her path. A rough hand grabbed her arm, and another tore the bag from her shoulders. Her lips turned down in a scowl as two of the men shoved her into an alley. Kailin allowed herself to be manhandled until one of the brutes reached for her breasts. As she blocked his hands she sneered.

“You fumble around like a teen-aged virgin.”

One of them rewarded her with a slap across the face. Kailin worked up the saliva and spat in his eye. “And you hit like a woman.”

The men were not deterred in the slightest and the writer is trying to figure out how graphic to be… As she began to struggle in earnest, the grips hardened. The rebuke this time was not as easy as an open-handed slap. A fist to the stomach would have sent her sprawling if she weren’t already held against the brick building. She kicked out as hands tore at her work-out pants. The rewarding grunt brought a grim smile to her lips.

Another punch bounced her head off the wall behind her and lights danced in front of her eyes, threatening unconsciousness. But the blessed relief did not come. Kailin let her eyes drift closed, fighting back tears. But a sudden anger flared through her at the mere thought of giving up. No way in hell was she going to let these bastards touch her… defile her. Grabbing hold of a strength she was sure she had not possessed moments ago, she shoved at the men that had drawn closer.

The shock on their faces mimicked her own as, to a one, they were thrown back. Blood marked the places where their heads had connected with the building. Four of them lay in a heap on the ground. The fifth was running down the alley, yelling incoherently. Her hands shook as she gathered the tatters of her shirt closer to her.


Okay, quite a long excerpt but I'm really wanting thoughts on it.
