I’mma answer the questions now… haha
I’m actually not that far into it. It feels like I am, but I’m just starting the fun stuff. xD
I’m 55 pages in and about 28,282 words into it.
The story is about a group of friends who go up in the mountains to my MC’s cabin-like mansion for Christmas and end up becoming stranded. It’s winter time (so snow is everywhere), they’re 40+ miles away from society, the cars don’t work, they are completely alone, and phone service doesn’t work, and they have no internet. And what’s worse is when characters die. So it’s kind of like a murder mystery where my MC tries to “investigate” and figure out what’s happening (and later founds out there is a murderer among them) all the while trying to get off the mountain.
Currently, my MC and a friend, goes on a morning jog (before the sun rises, actually) and he becomes scared because his friend left him in the middle of the forest, to pee, and it’s super dark out so he’s kind of paranoid on not surviving. Even though there isn’t much to be afraid of… at the moment, at least. xD
My favorite line would be:
All the questions rose into my mind and I believed, for a second, that I wasn’t going to survive until the crack of dawn.
Although, my most recent paragraph was:
“Well, I have. As a photographer and a bit of a videographer, I have been inside mental institutions and hospitals that no longer ‘exist,’ and it’s creepy as fuck. There’s blood all over the walls, there’s noises, and things that moved around when no one touched it . . . Kyle and I took a few trips to stay around during the night and there was a point where our actual flashlight stopped working, even though the batteries were brand new and it was a brand new flashlight. We had like five different ones and none of them worked, and we tried them before we did the challenge thing.”
^^It’s dialogue… xD
A lot to go. Haha. My goal is to get to 70,000 words. I have about 41,718 words left to go.
Besides diverse casting, I really want to nail down suspense! This is my first murder mystery, so I’m afraid that my suspense isn’t all that good. xD
