My Stories

So my muse is more active than me. She puts ideas into my head, more ideas than I can handle, which results in half plotted stories by the dozen. Here is a “short” list of all the stories in my mind, fighting to get out, and their status:

  1. The Speed of Darkness
    First rewrite finished, will most probably stay in this stage until forever has passed. NaNoWriMo 2009
  2. Then Came Mary
    First rewrite started – This is my flagship. I love this story and am so afraid of ruining it that I have problems with rewriting it. NaNoWriMo 2010
  3. I Called him Gabriel
    First draft finished. NaNoWriMo 2011
  4. Climbing the 4th Wall
    WIP. First draft started during NaNoWriMo 2011. Tried to finish it during NaNoWriMo 2013.
  5. Now Come the Tears
    First draft started, halfway plotted. I know the ending, it’s the road there that is a bit foggy.
  6. Working For the Other Guy
    First draft finished. Faaaaaar from what was previously plotted. NaNoWriMo 2014.
  7. The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of
    plotted halfway.
  8. Killing Time
    Undefined, because it’s basically another take at lost NaNoWriMo 2007 with another main character so the half finished story will have to be totally rewritten.
  9. Getting Even
    First draft halfway. Lost JulNoWriMo 2011. Re-plotting started February 2012.
  10. It Never Rains, It Pours
    Short story written as a fanfic but in the process of becoming… not a fanfic… 🙂
  11. Rebeccah and the Gamedevil
    Just the major idea that got the ball rolling. Okay, I actually started writing it… in the middle, where the big ball was bouncing.
  12. My Cousin the Sniper
    I got the characters, their professions, the scenery and everything, but only one scene with a slight resemblance of plot.
  13. Dream Summer
    WIP since 2009: a bit written… well actually quite a lot written, but without plot… a bit plotted, not as much as I’d like to though…
  14. Där Näcken Spelar/Where the Neck Plays
    WIP. Sort of lovestory set in Sweden during Midsummer, with the mythological creature the Neck playing a big part (no pun intended). The Neck, or Näcken in Swedish, is said to be a naked man playing the violin in the river to seduce women and kids to follow his alluring music into the water and subsequently drown. Now he’s a figment of my imagination. February 2012: The plotting is almost finished, the ending half still under construction. NaNoWriMo 2012
  15. Eros
    First Draft Finished. Rewrite in progress. One scene kept me awake a chilly morning in February from 5am to 7am until I got up and wrote the first 5000 words of the story. I repeated that for 5 more days and suddenly had a novella. Tried to re-write in NaNoWriMo 2013 but wrote more on Carolina.2 and Climbing the 4th wall.
  16. Carolina.2
    Paused WIP. Plotted beginning middle and end, confused about the execution of the plot. Tried to write in NaNoWriMo 2013.

Now I just have to give myself a kick in the butt to get going with the writing and  rewriting and get something worth publishing instead of a lot of drawer-only novels.
