THE BIG REVEAL

Standard

So I am in the process of editing MY FIRST EVER BOOK! It is a supernatural thriller aimed at young adult readers. There are vampires werewolves and…. well lets not spoil the rest!

I thought I would spoil you all with the beginning of my story:

‘I sit on the balcony, staring into the night sky, watching the stars flicker and shine. My legs dangle off the side through the cold, metal bars and a cool breeze whistles through my ears. It reminds me of all of the midnight walks me and Dahlia used to have when we were in our early teenage years. We would stop off in the middle of the woods and dance around, with the wind blowing through our thin, white dresses. Fireflies would glide around us, lighting up the dark shadows cast down from the tall trees, which were closely huddled together like a pack of wolves, under the big, circular moon.’

Genre prompts

Standard

Prompts have always inspired me and helped me with my short stories, there are so many online and also books with them in. Have you ever thought of looking for specific genre prompts though? Here are some examples below that I have found on the internet and think sound very helpful.
Dystopian -The end of the world happened with the mass destruction of the power plants and a virus that runs rampant throughout the entire population.
Horror – Your driving on a country road. It is late at night. You are far from home. You realize, as you check your mirrors, there is a man you do not know, hiding on the floor of your back seat.
Romance – Write a story about a romance that develops while both the main characters are dealing with an addition.
