Here's a synopsis of the novel I plan to write as posted at lj_nanowrimo
When confronted with the unusual stipulations of her grandmother's will, moving to back to her Dad's hometown halfway through her senior year of high school is the least of Tara's problems. Miranda is a college student working as a barista at a local coffee shop. All her life she's been waiting for a good adventure. Through a curious turn of events, she meets Tara, and they both cross paths with a mysterious young man who's about to turn all their worlds upside down in his quest to find the next Keeper.
Omg, how cliche' does that sound? I promise it's not that lame. :P
It seems a lot of people are writing fantasy stuff. Mine's on the edge of scifi, mystery, and will probably have a touch of Southern Gothic
,* not that I'm really sure what that is exactly, but It's set in the South, and creepy stuff happens. Seems to fit the bill.
I actually got hit with a major plot bunny when trying to figure out the background of the "mysterious young man." He has a name, but it's yet to be revealed in the story, hence the mysterious
. I'm seriously about five sentences away from revealing his name in the story, but it's on hold since I decided to backtrack and include a scene in the beginning with Tara at her grandma's funeral. I'm totally drawing from life with this scene, since my paternal grandmother passed away this summer.
And I still have to figure out exactly what a Keeper does. It just sounds cool right now. And therein lies the mystery part of my story. ;)*Wiki'd after the fact, and my definition was pretty accurate.
