So, I pulled up my word document titled "Story Ideas" and start going through the list.
And I heard crickets. Not a single story was talking to me. Why? Well, Julius wants more word time. He wants his story to continue, but I can't work on that. I have to focus on something new. Something completely different.
So I go back to my friend. She suggests that I avoid anything involving angels, vampires, werewolves, dystopian, or apocalyptic themes. As a joke, she said definitely stay away from vampiric angels in a apocalyptic setting.
And I was all...
It got worse a couple days ago when I mentioned it to some twitter friends. Then the ideas start really flying. When the dust cleared, I had bits of a story. Granted it's full of silliness, but it did get the brain moving again. I don't plan on writing it anytime soon, but maybe one of these days when I need something silly, I'll look back and do some more plotting.
So here is what I came up. The concept sounds very Anime, so I decided the title should reflect that.
Title: Sugar Blues
Genre: Urban Paranormal Romance Apocalyptic Dystopian Scifi
Vampyric Angels duke it out in Dystopian Apocalyptic world. Main character wakes up and looks in a mirror and only sees her wings which shimmer and glitter. Falls in love with her main opponent, who is female, and they have to team up to bring down the oppressive hedonistic oligarchy that controls their lives.
Also included: Sentient bees as an alien lifeform bent on world domination (they were behind the apocalypse). Shape-shifting unicorn pole-dancing enforcers (for the oligarchy). A spaceship named "Kitchen Sink" (might change that). And magic swords…both types (one of them may be sentient and another may, or may not, have fallen into an intergalactic garbage disposal unit). A 2,000 year old perverted empathic seer of ambiguous gender.
Now that I've gotten that out of my system for the moment, maybe my story ideas will start loving me again and talk.
