This was a kind of a busy day with laundry and trying to find a way to develop a three-part story arc that fits my crappy style of typing. I have an idea that I’ve been kicking around my head for about five years now, but I don’t think I ever tried to actually type it before. The original idea was a little rambling with multiple story arcs and an ambiguous ending. If I do this story, then I want to thin out the plot and develop one overall story arc, but that doesn’t mean it won’t involve multiple elements it just means the elements have to impact the overall story. I tried to type this before, but I always chickened out but this time I mean to actually do it.
The story is set in the future where an economic collapse caused a civil war ending organized government as we know it devolving into city-states the check each other keeping a status quo. An outside force is also working to keep the fractured United States broken up. The main character is seen as a hero for her actions during a war that where she led a defense of a strategic point, but she doesn’t see it the same way. After a village requests help, she and a team of soldiers go on a quest to find whoever is trying to keep the people from uniting. Along the way they will meet farmers, cannibals and a religious group bent on ending the war by killing every person they find. Our hero will also face her past and why she is seen as a hero to her people and a villain to the outside world. I am now wondering if I should do this story? I think this will be more of a book than a series of short stories.
Story five in the Living in the Nut will be published soon, but first I have a prequel story about an AI, and its plans to control the city of Austin. I will work on this, and more so there will be further stories to come………
Thank you for your time.
