So the big lesson I'm trying to learn from NaNo this year is to loosen up on my obsessive self-editing death grip as I write, which means I have to deliberately let myself be messy, which means my head will probably explode by the end of the first week. Even this summary is hard for me to post, because the writing is flatter and more utilitarian than I would usually share with you guys, but - okay, shutting up and getting to the point now. This is a rough summary of Phases, a contemporary-set novel about werewolves, fairy tales, and the world through a monster's eyes. Enjoy.
Or not. Whichever.
( who's that I see walkin' in these woods? )
Title: A History of Cartography
Rating: PG for mild language.
Notes: This is the first chapter of the pseudo-novel that I'm working on for my pseudo-novel writing class. For lack of a better explanation, let's say that it's something like The Royal Tenenbaums + Edgar Allen Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher + something else that's absolutely nothing like either of those things. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet.
Title: The Third Woe Comes Quickly
Rating: Teen for language and violent imagery.
Warnings: Dark. Very.
Notes: This is an old story, one that long predates any of my Doctor Who fic. I've been cleaning it up, trying to work myself into an original fiction sort of mode, and I thought I might share now that it's readable. Not recommended for those who avoid themes of suicide, mental illness, or teenage boys. Oh dear. Apocalypses.
