If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

The muse stole me!

A shiny brand new idea captured my attention over the break and I've been writing my little fingers off!
I'm through chapter three of my new novel 'The Jade Coterie' (was up till 2am working on ch. 3). Then I spent another hour and a half with all sorts of ideas flying into my head and writing them down on paper before I forgot them and drifted off into dream land.
Here is the initial premise of the novel-

 Ebony Graves has one desire, to be a Jade in the elite courtesan group the Jade Coterie.She must complete three tests that challenge her abilities as well as awaken others. Losing even one of these competitions means dismissal back into the hands of her abusive father. Her ex-best friend , Aurora, is out to make sure she not only loses the competition but also Kaige Donovan.

Well what do you all think?

Ooo...I like the premise and am interested in hearing more about these challenges they have. :) Good luck with it! New ideas are always so much fun.

I really like the idea! Its intriguing. Good job! :)

Good start! And you were up until how late? I'm to the point I worry if I'll make it until midnight on New Year's Eve.

I love, love, love when a story takes off like that!

The premise is good because it makes you want know more. The ex-best friend detail has a huge potential for emotional depth and conflict, which to me makes the best books.

May the muse keep you hostage forever and ever!! Hoorah for you!!! Love the names and the premise!! Keep going, well done you! Take care

Nicole Zoltack said...

I really like the premise. The challenge part has me intrigued the most - that and the ex-best friend. Best of luck with it!

Jenna Cooper said...

This definitely sounds like the type of premise that keeps you up writing. Have fun with writing!

Yvonne Osborne said...

I think that any writing that keeps you up until 2 am is good writing. There's nothing like the rush of a new idea, getting wrapped up in a new novel. I envy you! You make me want to start another one too.

Kitty Moore said...

Solid idea with lots of peotential...are you going to post the chapters?

The Golden Eagle said...

Intriguing premise! Aurora sounds like a great antagonist . . . she must know a lot about Ebony, which makes it easier to bring her down.

Summer Ross said...

@ Kitty- No I do not think I want to post the chapters on my blog. I will be putting them up on a critique group though.

Jules said...

And long as it has a happy ending and Aurora gets her lights knocked out. :) Make her strong my fairy friend.

Happy New year my friend!!
