Work in Progress Challenge


I got dragged into this by the awe­some Rachel Desilets because I whined about peo­ple ignor­ing the fact I was a writer.


I have… I think three WiP going, but for this I picked Chron­i­cles. BTW, I am not work­ing on this for NaNoW­riMo. No idea what I’m doing if anything.

1. What is the title of your Work in Progress 

Chron­i­cles: Ball of Fate

2. Where did the idea for the WiP come from?

My twisted head. That and read­ing far too many Terry Pra­chett books and try­ing to write Fan Fic.

3. What genre would your WiP fall under?

Satir­i­cal Fan­tasy. That’s assum­ing there isn’t a WTF? genre by then.

4. Which actors would you choose to play char­ac­ters in a movie rendition?

Will Smith would play Phineas, Any brown and black Aus­tralian Ter­rier with Steve Car­rell as the voice. David Bore­anaz as Faulkner Seth Green as the Pro­fes­sor Emma Wat­son as Mel

5. What is a one-​​sentence syn­op­sis of your WiP?

A nor­mal cargo run turns into the adven­ture of a life­time for the crew of the [Cor­sair] as they encounter pirates, a lost Admin­is­tra­tor, Knights of Orange (who are actu­ally orange), and Dawge­ri­ans priests who believe the proph­esy of the Ball of Fate begins to come true, sort of.

6. Will your book be self-​​published or rep­re­sented by an agency?

Rep­re­sent! Oh, I mean Rep­re­sented. Not sure I’m allowed to say who yet.

7. How long did it take you to write?

It’s start­ing life as a ser­ial then get­ting con­verted into a book so… how­ever long it takes.

8. What other WiPs in your genre would you com­pare it to?

Dis­c­world and/​or HHGTTG

9. Which authors inspired you to write this WiP?

Terry Pra­chett, Dou­glas Adams, Issac Asimov

10. Tell us any­thing else that might pique our inter­est about this WiP.

It con­tains a talk­ing dawg, and evil sci­en­tist named Lit­tle Mis­ter, six foot tall faeries, a giant octo­pus at the cen­ter of the galaxy that only wants to drink frothy lemon­ade (frothy is a require­ment), and a semi-​​bio-​​organic ship. Kind of.
