Writing Every Day
I read one of the articles posted here on the site that recommended writing every day. I slept on it and thought it was a good idea. Thanks. I’ve been hesitating on starting a web series, but after reading the post I decided now is as good of time as any other. I hope you guys will check it out.
I’m planning to release a new installment at least once a month. Once I complete my Untold series, I can focus more on this web series and release installments more frequently. The web series is called Womanly Assassin. In short, Womanly Assassin is an Urban Web Series, where a girl named Nicki is the main character. She turns to a life of crime, which was destined to find her. By the end of the story, I hope to create an assassin that no one will ever forget.
Here’s a link to the 1st installment -- http://www.ysdata.com/ysbooks/womanly-assassin-installment-1/
Been thinking of writing a series of assassin books with a female lead for a while. The challenge is to find that unique thing that makes it stand out from the rest. I had thought about approaching it from the perspective of having a character who wants to live the most normal life despite what she does for a living.
Maybe she has a husband and kids, possibly even some sort of regular job, but then she steps out to to take people out from time to time. The tension in the story would come from the difficulties she has balancing normal life and her role as assassin, and not getting caught.
Over time there would be the opportunity to delve into her backstory that let you know how she got into this position.
Just ideas at the moment. Feel free to feed on them.
Womanly Assassin starts with the main character as a child. So, I delved straight into the back story right away. There’s no question why she’s in her current position. Because it is a web series, I planned to walk the reader through one event after another. The tension in this story will come from the difficulties of being more ruthless, cunning, and fearless than the men.
What do you think?
