Rochelle’s Briefcase – Done. What’s Next?

I finally finished Rochelle’s Briefcase. Well, the first draft, anyway. I posted the final chapter yesterday on Story-time and it feels like I rushed the story to its end. Because I did.

Just over a year ago Goran Zidar started up the Story-time website where authors can post serial novels a chapter at a time and readers choose what happens in the following chapters. A great opportunity to write a novel-length piece and get directional feedback almost in real time. Well, novel-writing real time! Continue reading

Rochelle’s Briefcase – Chapter 12

Thanks everyone who voted at the end of Chapter 11.

I reached a crossroads in the middle of chapter 12 and couldn’t decide which was the better way to go so I wrote both threads and put that up for the vote this time round. Chapter 12 looks like this (complete with coloured background!):

 

Chapter 12-Threads

It seems most people decided Jake was playing a joke . Without giving too much away this becomes apparent in Thread 1 but not so much in Thread 2.

So if you like, have a read of both threads and decide which one we follow in Chapter 13. Catch up chapters can be found here.

Enjoy!

Six Sentence Sunday #20

6 Sentence Sunday LogoHello again,

Phew! NaNoWriMo is finally over and I can breathe again. And that also means I can concentrate on finding another 6 sentences for this Sunday. This time round I thought I may as well leave the NaNo document open and pull something out of that. Now, being NaNo and totally unedited (although I might edit a little just for this exercise). This is from a sci-fi story I came up with specifically for NaNo on the day before it started, tentatively titled, The Rogue. It’s about how the world reacts to a massive orphaned planet that plays Skittles with our solar system.

In this early scene the chief astronomer at the observatory is being briefed by one his subordinates.

Spitzer found an anomaly in Sagittarius. We need you to check it out.”

What sort of anomaly?”

A moving cold point, just on the threshold of detection. The system flagged it after about a week of watching and it’s only just moved enough in that time to trigger the motion sensor. It’s definitely real but we don’t know what it could be.”
