I want to start submitting a story to Writers of the Future every quarter. So while waiting for feedback from critters about “Meddling Gods”, I decided to start a new story to submit for Q2 (open Jan – Mar). This story idea came because I was playing an app game that had a really flat narrative, and I wanted to see if I could do better. So I took the basic setting (islands that float) and character (a captain of the Empire that defects to your pirate crew) and put my own spin on it.
I like the potential of this story, but it is oh so rough. “Floating Island” is just a place holder title. The character and description need fleshing out and renaming. The plot and theme should be streamlined and strengthened. Hopefully I am up to the task.
