You know that I love love reading novels To some people, reading is boring. People always ask me “How can you even read that?” or “You can read that in 3 days?” and etcetera.
My love for books paved way for my love of writing which lead me to blogging and being in the official student publication of our school. Anyways, I’ve tried to go beyond and actually attempted to write a book.
It’s an apocalyptic themed book which I don’t remember the title. It’s about a girl trying to survive with her family after a zombie breakout. I was so excited to work with this idea and then suddenly, I just stopped it because 1.) I got self doubts, 2.) I was really busy with school and 3.) I can’t think of an amazing plot.
But lately, this year, I am having thoughts of writing again because I’ve had an idea for a fantasy series. It’s a really complex idea, this one. And then, recently, I’ve had an idea for a mystery book and a coming of age genre kind of short story.
These idea always bug me like when I’m trying to study or when I’m about to sleep. You can just see me at 11 pm in my bed, lying with my eyes wide open, trying to think of the setting and the plot for the novel.
I really want to develop these ideas but again, I’m busy with school and it will be a long process!
You might all be wondering what are these ideas. Here they go:
- The working title for the fantasy one is “The Immortal Files: Child of Light”. There are deities called Immortals and they are from another realm. The main character founds out that he’s the Child of Light, the child of the Immortal of Light and the one prophesied to beat the Dark Immortal. He’s suddenly transported into the realm of the Immortals and other supernatural characters (there are witches, magi and others). In this realm, there’s a safe haven for the children of the other Immortals where the main character is immersed into the lore of the whole realm and the Immortals. The conflict is that 1.) the Dark Immortal is back andthe safety of the children is threatened after murders started happening in the safe haven.
- There are other fantasy ideas such “The Wicked Files”, “The Cursed Files” and “The Majesty Files”. One thing interesting about all these ideas is that they happen at the same realm of the Immortals so there might be crossovers and such. As I said, it’s really complex.
- I have this idea about teenagers and different issues they’re struggling with such as anxiety, depression, family problems, eating disorder, sexual orientation and etcetera. It’s a serious one as you can tell. It’s called “No Filter”. There 3-6 characters (I can’t decide) who has their own kind of conflict and POV and then they meet each other because of another conflict (which is the main one). I can’t think of a conflict that will work for this. I thought of that they all have a common friend that died because of suicide and they meet each other because of this tragedy. The problem with this is the plot.
- The last idea actually came from “No Filter”. It’s a mystery story where 3 friends founds out that their friend commited suicide. Then, they found a suicide note and quickly noticed that it’s not their friend’s handwriting which they concluded it’s forged. They began speculating if their friend actually killed himself/herself or he/she was killed. Then, one thought that there’s a mysterious figure trying to terrorize them which began a hysteria for them. It’s kind of Pretty Little Liars kind of things with a little dash of Heathers.
That’s all of it.
I really want to develop this ideas but I’m just so afraid of the process so if anyone can lend a helping hand, that would be awesome. Also, share your thoughts about these ideas because if I officially made up my mind and tried to do one of this ideas, I would need your suggestions and opinions.
That’s all for now. I hope you like this post. I’ll see you again soon! Bye!
