Do you mind giving a short synopsys?

I usually write Dark Fantasy myself. This years NaNo for me is going to be in that genre, the story of a demoness, a Lord's son and his Man-at-Arms. It's an interesting story about Jealousy!

Welcome to the boards, by the way.

Oh, and you might want to check out our world building course down in the inventors cormer. Each assignment is pretty quick, and you'll e able to catch up easily I'd say.

Well this synopsis isn't the shortest one ever but it gets the main points across....

Naserath was the worst demon of the underworld. He kidnaps mortal women and tortures them until they break beneath him. The one female that was his undoing in trying to break would be Jade Thomas. She cursed him everyday in his chambers, promising she would be the one to kill him. After a year of being tortured everyday by Naserath, Jade finally figured out how to destroy him and gain her freedom.
Now, three years later, Jade is still haunted by her nightmares, but even worse she is now being chased by demons. Does the demons following her mean that Naserath is not dead or is there a new demon gunning for her? Will Jade be able to run forever or will she use the help of the one man that can finally bring about her insanity? Can this man save her or will his past destroy her heart more than winning it over?




I loved the idea and I just ran with it....lol But that is sometimes how good stories come out!!! And thanks, I will go to the world building forum and catch up with everyone!!! cheers

Sounds cool. I can't wait to see the world building for it.

I'd suggest, even if it's supposed to be this world, doing the world building. I've found that writing it all down and treating it as a new area, even if it's about your own neighborhood, really helps with describing it to be people who have never seen it before.

Can't wait to see your world building!

I'd recommend the world building too, it makes you think about things that are very important to the story, but you wouldn't necessarily have thought of. It really interrogates your ideas - in a good way. And don't worry, I'm still catching up too, so you won't be too far behind!
