Progress Update (PU) | Torque

I’ll be making short updates about my novel and possible short stories. I will be keeping track for my own reasons and in case you are interested. This post will be a lot shorter than usual, but I wanted to update something for Sunday/ Monday before I post on Wednesday again. (If posts are not up Sunday, Monday is the day.)

In my previous posts, linked below, I may have talked about my novel that I am currently struggling with. I am not sure if  I mentioned the name, but I did post about the starting words of chapter 1. But I have named it Torque. The reason why I chose this title is because of the physics definition: a twisting force that causes rotation. I wanted to make a connection with physics to my main character and I also like the idea that torque could be an idea for catalytic events. In my novel, my main character (of course) is that catalytic force – that twisting force.

And her name is Cori.

When I had explained what my novel was about to others, I had a hard time trying to tell them. Mainly because, like other writers,I am protective of my work. Recently, I finally made a little summary for my portfolio director – it’s not exactly what I want to say, but it gets the point across.

 Cori is half human and half of an experimental vampiric-like race. She is aware of the strange things happening around her and her own abilities but only to an extent and becomes a catalytic force in an impending war.  

I know, the word vampiric stands out, but that’s how I originally started it. After so many changes to the plot, character, names – I wanted to keep it. I also have not thought of a name for the vampiric-like race. Well, a new name. I had several before, but that can be a separate post.

I intend for Torque to be a fantasy/ action series (four books) for adults. I currently have 3,089 words for chapter 1. Keep checking the bottom bar for current word count.(Or my struggle of the same word count.)

But until Wednesday, comment below.
