Latest Synopsis

After working really hard by myself to get everything written just right for my 'final' synopsis, I ended up talking it through with my mom and this is the result:

When the Zoic Betterment Program (ZBP) came and took Jesi Forbes, they turned her world upside down. The ZBP killed her family, her friends, and took her freedom. Now, newly trained as an elite bodyguard, she is willing to do anything in her power to bring the program down. With the future shrouded in shadow, will she succeed against all odds? Or will she become, just like Doctor Aceti and Mr. Atkins, an annihilator of her own kind?

Now I'm hoping to pick up the pace and get writing this next month or so. (That is, if I'm not bogged down with life. . . )

Yes, I FINALLY have a name for the organization that is the bane of all Zoics. The Zoic Betterment Program, ZBP for short. I cannot tell you how excited I am at finally finding/choosing the name for that organization. Hopefully, I can now get over some big road blocks now and get more done.

OH! I also found one of my stumbling blocks that I didn't even know I had until after some digging. I didn't have a proper villain for this story. Oh, I had a villain for the second or so book (Derek. . . I paid too much attention to you. . . -_-), I just didn't have one to defeat for THIS book I'm working on. Now I do. Meet the head scientist of the ZBP, Dr. Connie Aceti!

I am so happy that I finally have a good villain to use for THIS book! No offense, of course, to Derek. He's becoming quite. . . Freaky in my mind; Dr. A also is coming together very fast, and even a better then Derek did. . . Anyways, that's my update! Hopefully I can put up a new and improved synopsis by tomorrow night.

*blows trumpets* Introducing a new title!

After going through the first twenty lesson for OYAN, I have decided that Breaking Free is not a very good title at all for Jesi's story. Jesi really doesn't 'break free' from anything.

*drum roll* The new title is. . .

. . .

. . .

. . .

Shadow Wings

The reason I chose this name is because Jesi's future is very uncertain (hence shadow), and she learns to become more or less a leader (hence wings). :) I am very happy with the title, it gives me so much plot bunnehs that I can add to it, and it perfectly fits Jesi's raven form.

Here comes college. (I'm starting to write essays and research papers again.)

I'm getting ready for college, and that means for me to start writing papers. Its been a year since I graduated from 'High School', and all I've done is write fiction since then. I'm currently planning on writing a five paragraph essay on the architecture of Rome, and a research paper on Vietnam. I'm still working on going through OYAN, and I'm going to have to figure out when to fit that in.

I can't wait to write the one on the architecture of Rome because I love architecture. I don't just like it, I love it. God has given humans a great ability to make everything beautiful, even our homes, and it is shown through the ages. We paint them, carve them, make them interesting shapes (yes the shapes are useful, but they are also beautiful), and make them as comfortable as we know how. I wonder at how beautiful heaven will be what with the intricacy of the temple Solomon built for God, and the Tabernacle that God gave directions for to Moses. God loves beauty and intricacy, not just in architecture. Okay, I'll stop before I go on down a rabbit trail.

I have not learned at all about Vietnam. It is an important subject for Americans though because of the Vietnam War and its impact on today. I'm so uncertain of what I'll be centering on though. . . I can't wait until the books come in from the library.

I'm stuck on my story again, no surprise there. Well, more like I'm balking at trying to figure out how my Hero changes in the end of my book. If you've done OYAN before, I'm stuck on lesson 18. I'm also a bit out of ideas for a twist/surprise/revelation as well. Or even a symbol for that twist/surprise/revelation. The Bunneh's have left me in this area, while bombarding me with new ideas. Hurrah. (sarcasm intended)

So that's a quick catch up on what I've been doing with my writing. I can't wait to begin my new papers and see how badly the first drafts will come out! Then I get to edit them. Mwahahaha!
