Ideas and musings

Following on from my last post, You want another chapter?!, I’ve been running over some ideas as to how I can take my short story, The End Solution(click here to see, go on….) further. Comments are always welcome.

Our hero is just about coming to terms with his new lot in life. As a man who knows who is going to commit a serious crime by just smelling them he could use this to his own ends. Why don’t you rob this bank and I will ensure you get away with your crime? He is stupidly strong as well so this would be easy for him. He could do this a few times and disappear for good. He needs to feed on the chemical to keep himself alive (which he discovers later on) and could easily feed on the people after they’ve robbed the bank for him.

Our hero discovers, after becoming very sick and desperate, that he needs to feed on the chemical to keep himself alive. I could explain how he goes about this and how it makes him feel.

Our hero goes back to his family who then become fugitives themselves for housing him. The mother sides with him and the father tries to turn him in. In effect he breaks his family apart and ultimately escapes again anyway.

Our hero becomes the countries hero. He goes around sucking the chemical out of those who need it and becomes a household name. He embraces the government and so on.

This is what I have so far. Let me know your thoughts.

You want another chapter?!

So, like I said in my last post (Oh what to add in and what not to add in) I uploaded a short story to protagonize.com to see if I could get some feedback on it. Sure enough, one person gave the story 4.50 out of 5 rating which was awesome. But this one person also did something which got my head buzzing as well; they put a page marker on my story. This means that there awaiting the next chapter.

What next smeggin chapter?! It was only supposed to be a short story! Panic ensues as I throw things in the air and roll around on the floor. I could do with hoovering up this place?

However, out of this worry came more ideas. I’m currently in the planning stage of the next chapter of this story. It is a vampire-esque fable and I’d like to expand on that aspect first before the political side of the story. Maybe I should show how our hero and/or villain feeds with his new found powers?

As always, if you could have a read and give me your thoughts it would be most appreciated. The link is on my last post.
