I'm considering restarting Scales.

Unread postby PS Power » Sun Jun 26, 2016 1:57 am

35,000 words in to the thing. It read fine, actually. Well, even. It isn't a bad story or anything like that.

I just feel that it's too similar to other things I have written. That I need to push into different directions or else everyone will become bored. Which is totally fair. It's my job to find new directions. New ways to make things interesting and intense while telling a story that is novel.

I don't know however, since this may actually be linked to depression, or at the least total apathy. It's hard to tell if anything at all is interesting right now! :)

Not that it's an excuse. I'm just thinking that I need to keep working on getting better while I have the chance. (To work on nothing but writing like I have been.)

I like the idea of a story/s for each race. After this one (3) on shifters, move on to mages or trillion. By the way, finish your Dragon shifter story!!! I collect t dragons. Glenn

I'm probably biased as I love pretty much everything you've published so far, and more of the same sounds perfectly fine to me... but I would be happy to read whatever you have written so far and give you my opinion if you think that would be helpful.

Of course they're similar, it's the same story line. We like that!

I'd have to agree. Other places is a rich and well defined world, with well defined magical societies, and we asked for another book in that world.

Sure, plot differences and all that, but the world, and the characters in it, should be consistent.

The only way to be completely original is to write about a whole new place, such as the art of being Tony. While I'm looking forward to stories like that, I'm definitely not done with other, alternate, ya, infected, etc...

Well we here might be biased. We like what you have written so far enough to find you on this forum and register, so chances are very high, we will like scales too.

In what regard, do you think it's to similar to other stories?
If you really want to make the story different, just make it an lazy Dragon 8-)

No kidding, all Dale's characters make me feel positively lazy. :D

Of course, a lazy protagonist would be boring. Whole chapters of eating junk food on the couch. Giving up on things. So maybe not a good idea to change.

Lazy would be only boring, if the MC gets what he wants :D

I have the first ten thousand words (restarted today.)

The story is a bit darker. It doesn't take place in the mall :) (yes, the other one ended up there.) The main body of the thing will be a manhunt for a serial killer. With a very special team, brought in to aid the Federal Government find the group, or person, who's killing members of different "other" groups.

It starts out at battle camp. So is a bit different in location, if not world. It will be different enough that people should be able to pick it up without reading anything else first.

Also, Avery Rome (The Dragon Shifter.) is basically a traveling Gypsie/Amish Cult member who is horribly bigoted. Not because she's bad, just because of how she was raised. There is, of course, a redemption arc. In many ways she simply isn't like anyone else we've seen so far.

Hopefully it's enough, since I want to use some familiar characters in the story. Book two might be more familiar, but at least the first one will be different.
