It’s still in the very early development, but so far it’s going to be a very loose retelling of “And then there were none”. Well, the only thing they have in common is the concept of a story seeming to be reenacted in real life. The premise is that a local academy is going to put on a ballet, and then people begin mysteriously dying and being injured in the same way. The only way I can describe the genre is that it’s a “dark academia” novel XD It’s a cool genre and I want to try it out. Some of the themes are friendships falling apart and a subversion of the “Not like other girls/mean girl” trope. The bubbly, popular “shallow” sidekick is the POV character, while the “Not like other girls” character functions as a kind of antagonist. More emotionally than anything else, but it’ll be really interesting! I temporarily titled it “Murder of Swans” but I’ll be changing that eventually! I’m really excited about it, I feel like it might end up being something!

Oh, that sounds interesting. I don’t really know much about that genre, but it seems like it could be fun. The characters sound really cool, especially how you’re twisting the tropes.

I started listening to it and it’s awesome! Thanks for sharing!

No, problem! I’m glad you like it! 🙂

Oh, wow, that’s an awesome premise! I love the concept, it sounds so interesting, and the color idea sounds so vivid!

thanks! The colours unfortunately have less to do with the story then I originally hope/planned but if I can’t weave them back in, I think I’ll probably write a prequel since the colour aspect of the world was used a lot more before things were banned. 😛

@elena-n Sorry for the delay!

A murder mystery sounds fun! Would you want to share more about it?

Right now I’m working on a Fantasy which is currently called Colours, though I hope to rename it soon. It’s about a girl, Helene, who is banished from her town in a world where art can come to life and colours can change emotions. But the people banished art and colour to keep themselves safe from it being abused. As a result of that and a few other things, their world is slowly dying and Helene has to try to save it. I really like the world and characters so far.

Oh, wow, that’s an awesome premise! I love the concept, it sounds so interesting, and the color idea sounds so vivid!

My favorite character? Hmm…that’s hard. I really don’t know. I like all my characters. In my last WIP I had a cute little robot guy that was fun. Do you have a favorite character that you’ve written?

Oh, absolutely, choosing favorite characters is really hard XD I think one of my favorites is a redeemed villain I’m writing in my current WIP. He’s so interesting and has so many layers. I love writing his voice, his backstory, just everything about it is interesting and just fun to write!

He sounds like a really good character.

When the darkness presses around, the light will shine brighter.
