Welcome

Welcome to my self-indulgent location for the stories (good and bad) that I can't prevent myself from writing. All comments and criticisms welcome. I post on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

NaNoWriMo Preparation

I decided to jump in feet first to my NaNoWriMo preparations, and threw together a synopsis.  So many blogs and people suggest doing that first to get the juices flowing, so why not? 

Interested?

The Demon Inside

When she wakes up in a morgue freezer, Alexis doesn’t know who she is or how she got there. Her friends rescue her the night before the autopsy, and then spend weeks helping her rediscover her past and herself, except no one else knows the details of the evening in which Alexis was brought to the morgue. Born a demon slayer, she relearns how to control her power and continues her training as if nothing ever happened.

When she runs into Ridge, the vampire responsible for killing her boyfriend, conflict tears at Alexis. As the slayer, she wants to kill him, but he offers her information about her new life and about that night when everything changed. As the days and nights of her new life multiply, Alexis finds herself sniffing people’s necks and identifying their blood types, or wondering how her sister’s flesh would taste, or dreaming of the savory entrails of live victims, and she realizes what no one else has—she is no longer only human.

At first she tells no one, ashamed of what she has become while fighting demons harder than before. But needing to confide in someone, Alexis tells her sister and asks her the unthinkable: if Alexis becomes too dangerous, her sister needs to be ready to kill her.

Thoughts? Critiques?

Now on to character development...

Sounds great! Definitely a book I'd pick up and read!

LTM said...

ew, crazy! reminds me a little of Buffy~ :o)

Summer Ross said...

It reminds me a little of buffy as well. It sounds good though.

RosieC said...

Yeah. Admittedly, it's a little Buffy inspired, but it hopefully won't read that way too much. Glad you like it :)

Jules said...

Okay telling my age I guess, never did Buffy. Reading or watching but the synopsis sounds great. "Sniffing peoples necks," made me laugh though, is that right? :)

Sounds great. Work it, girl. :)

Sounds like your going to have fun with NaNo! Enjoy plotting out your characters. :)

Carol Riggs said...

Aha! is THAT what's going on with your intro teaser! Very interesting. Sounds like a workable and twisty plot (which is a good thing). The only question I have is: in your story, are you having vampires and demons interchangeable? She's a demon slayer, so does she kill vampires, or demons--or both?

RosieC said...

Good question, Carol. In my mind, vampires are half-demons, so they fall into the category of demon-slayage. It's a good thing you brought it up, though, so I can be sure to get that included in the first couple of chapters. Thanks!

Love the complexities - this will be a lot of fun to read when you're done!

Charity Bradford said...

Wow! That sounds like an amazing story. I hope your month goes well so we can read some of this great idea.

Lynda Young said...

Oo this does sound interesting. It has a little buffy going for it, but it looks like you've given it a nice complex spin.

Hart Johnson said...

*shivers* Oh, Rosie, this sounds fabulous! Great mix of elements here! I can't wait until you have it written! (I can't synopsis first, but am storyboarding... so there IS a plan...)
