Two for One Special!

The next two characters I’m going to talk about are Marissa and Maggie Lynn. Marissa is an inventor who has never really had a story of her own. Okay, I admit it she did. It was my first Summer Novel Writing Month (it was awful! So many bad lines XD). Anyway, Marissa hasn’t been this epic before, so it’ll be interesting to see how she and Rose get along.

Maggie Lynn popped up as a random person who said she was a Detective. I didn’t really have a name for her, just knew that she was blonde, had a few piercings, and scars along her arms. So I asked a few people on Facebook if they could help me name her. I ended up going with Maggie due to a suggestion from one of my great friends. Lynn became her middle name, simply because it sounded good. 

As I began to explore the character, I decided to make her a little bit more special than just plain human. However, I didn’t want to make her inhuman. So, she ended up being able to see things that others can’t. Still a plain human who can’t do much, but she can help Rose out. 

Marissa was an idea I played with when I was still learning how to write. I wanted a super genius that couldn’t age. She ended up being half Pegasus, half Dragon. She has not had an easy life… but she still stands strong. Her son-in-law helps her with her inventions, and now that Marissa has met Rose she has a new guinea pig.

Being different isn’t easy, but it certainly helps when bad things are going down… right?

NaNo is coming

So last post I told you what my plot for NaNo is. Now it’s time to meet the characters. Today’s guest, is Rose Marie Lupei.

The idea for Rose came from reading so many books about strong women who either got broken or turned into sluts. I hate that. The broken ones usually end up hating the world and trying to hurt it because they got hurt (Or in the case of Rose (Vampire Academy) and Mac (Fever) they become numb until they find the guy they broke for is alive and savable).

Why is it that the strong ones cannot survive? Sure Anita Blake survives, but good golly. The first seven books were epic! She kicked butt, she got hurt, she stood back up. And then this happened: she got stuck in a love triangle, freaked out by one guy, ran to the other one and everything went downhill from there. At last count she had double digit lovers ><.

It’s almost like most authors think that they cannot create stories without someone breaking. And it’s always the main character. But what if there’s a character who has already been broken? I’ve never seen any books about that. Thus Rose was born. She came to me holding up her scars, telling me her story, hiding things that would be important later. So, I decided that I would write her story. A few others hid in her shadows, like Maggie Lynn (I’ll tell you about her tomorrow), Viper, and Dayle.

Not only did she come with a story (rather five-six books of story!), scars, and friends… but a playlist too! It took so much patience not to begin writing her story on the spot! There was only a month and a half until NaNoWriMo. I had to have patience. And so far I have resisted! Only five days to go. And then her story will be written. When I feel like I cannot write her story I’ll just remember this from Girls With Slingshots.

Laters! Tonight or tomorrow I will write up Maggie Lynn next!

As much as I planned to write the next week about my thoughts on 9/11… I lent my story to a friend and I haven’t gotten it back yet… Oh well.

I will leave you with something though. NaNoWriMo is coming up! 50,000 words in 30 days. I plan on winning this year. My story? It’s called “Trigger” and it’s the first in a series about a woman named Rose Marie Lupei. This is the beginning of the awesomeness. So here’s the synopsis:

 

“You think that you know your world? Well you don’t. I happen to be one of the few that do. My name is Rose Marie Lupei, and I am a morph. I was cursed by an unnamed witch and her vampire master to walk this world eternally. Most people go mad when these things happen to them. I am no different. I have attempted to kill myself, only to find that I am immortal (except for maybe being torn to pieces and turned into ash). I have been crucifed by “helpful” humans that wanted to remove the “demons” from my “damned soul”. 

 However, that is not the kicker to this story. You want to know the kicker? I have been keeping your sorry behinds safe from the real demons of the night. You’re welcome.

 There is one problem. You know how the Mayans had that calendar that ends on December 21 2012? It is not because the world is going to end, so do not get your feeble hopes up that we are all going to die horribly. They are still alive. The only way for the Mayans to survive the attack was to make a deal with the same demons that I protect you from. The original people still live! And they plan on making a come back on that day. They are the kind of vampires that I make sure end up on my “to die” list. 

 

Before you start thinking, “oh this has happened before. There are two types of vampires, the good ones that can handle their thirst and the bad ones that can’t”. Let me clue you in, there are far more than that. I have compiled a list of existing Vampires and their names. The Nosrekcin, the Vampyres, the “Pure” Vampires, and the Majiks.

The Majiks are the ones I save your sorry butts from. They are dangerous. The only thing they have on the brain is blood. However, they are not completely stupid. They hunt in packs, have controlled movement, and worst of all they are led by a Vampire who can use magic. I know their plan. No one is going to like it. On December 21st, the Majiks are going to destroy us all. Don’t worry, I’m here to save you. Me against a couple thousand vampires. You’re welcome.”

 

I love Vampire stories (like Anita Blake, Fever (though technically that series is Fae but still girl kick butt), Vampire Academy, and Bloodlines). I like Heroines that can kick butt by themselves. Though the Anita Blake books took a turn that I didn’t like. But I’ll save that for another blog post.

See you next week (for sure this time!)
