Elizabeth Seckman tagged me for this meme earlier this month.
The idea of The Magic 8 Ball (I'll need a little more information) Meme is for you get answers to questions you have about your w.i.p. that needs more than a magic 8 ball answer. This meme gives you the chance to ask others about some aspect of your work in progress that you're neverous about or struggling about. I'm going to post the first paragraph to Nevermore, my Peter Pan meets zombies novella. It has a black Peter, a Lost Boys with a girl in it, a 'special' Tinker Bell and a cocky teen Captain Hook. How can things not go wrong with that combination?
Peter Pan shot another zombie in the head. The handgun a simple extension of his hand. The uncoming groans signalled it was time to regroup. He zig zagged through the streets barking orders at his scattered crew. Once his life was different. Born in Detroit, he was working class poor. His mother Ester Morris took care of them both. Murmured little protest when he dropped out of school at age twelve. Bought him a box of six frosted cupcakes for his fourteenth birhday with his name on them. He, his best friend Spike and a few other teens hung out and ate in the dingy corridor of the apartment complex. It was the last normal day of his life. Two years later he was still living a different life. One in which his very life depended on killing zombies and finding safe places to hide. But his new group of friends helped shake the dreary monotony and reminded him both of what was and what is.
So my question is...What do you think? Hold nothing back I want your genuine opinion. I think it's pretty good but needs more work editing wise. Since it's an incomplete first draft I'm sure that goes for a lot of budding and current authors.
