Since I’m a notorious pantser, I started with a “loose” outline, tweaking and fine tuning the plot as I went along. I’ve reached the point, however, where I need definition to continue. So I’m turning to the most creative masterminds I know for help…YOU!
Here’s a brief description of my heroine. She was abandoned as a baby and raised by a childless couple until their untimely death. As the years pass, Heroine develops extraordinary paranormal abilities which she considers more a curse than a gift. Right before her 30th birthday, she is given a key to a safety deposit box containing an unusual pendant that seems to activate a strange physical and internal metamorphosis. Determined to find out who or what she is, Heroine embarks on a journey to locate her mother. Along the way, she battles forces intent on seeing her fail.
Now comes the hard part. What the hell is she? Alien? Long lost species? Time traveler? Angel with amnesia?
It may sound odd but I’ve already written the ending. I know what her purpose is for being here and where the journey is taking her. I just don’t know “what” she is. She can fall into one of several categories and the plot would still work.
Since my series is Paranormal with Erotic Elements, Heroine must exude a strong sexual appetite, capable of enjoying carnal pleasures with a variety of creatures and humanoids. The novella featuring a Werewolf is hot, hot, hot!
So help me out, New Kid followers. If I choose to develop your idea, I’ll post your name on my blog and award a $25 gift card from Barnes & Noble or Amazon. Your choice.
Let the brainstorming begin.
