Ian’s Big 2012 Writing Project: Faerie

marzo 31, 2012 at 4:48 am (Faerie, Ian Writes, Stuff)

Some context: a few months ago, I decided that I’d pool all my writing energy into a project I called “Wander”, a post-post-apocalyptic story inspired in equal parts by Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo and the “The King of Fighters” videogame series.  Eventually, I got around to writing chapter 5, which was a flashback to protagonist Pari Okhovat’s high school days, and would have been vastly different from the rest of the novel.  However, as I wrote about characters and scenarios which I was planning never to reference again, I started thinking of the flashback story as the stronger one, or at least one where I had something in particular to say, and the one that stood the best chance of actually being completed.  So, for the moment, I’ve decided to set “Wander” aside and focus on Pari’s high school days, in a project I call “Faerie”.  What’s it about?

Well, there’s high school in it.  It has cheerleaders and jocks and devout Christians.  It also has two Muslim girls with vastly different views of their religion, Lindy Hop, and at least one reference to The Amazing Race.   As in most stories, it ends with the characters in rather different places than where they started.  It is my sincerest hope that it doesn’t suck.

So!  I’ll be posting excerpts, drafts, and snippets here as I come up with them, as well as comments, questions, and assorted stuff regarding the creative process. I’ll also be posting most of this stuff  at Wishful Writers, a forum for aspiring writers operated by (maybe?  I’m not 100% sure about this) J.D. Montague and Ana Mardoll, so there’s that.

So yeah.
