The Watchmen Files // File Two // First Sneak Peek

Hey guys!

   Yep, it's D again.

   So, last time I did a "what would you like to see" post about the second file, and now I'd like to give you guys a little sneak peek into that book. Yippee! Let's go :) I'm super excited to write the next one, as you can tell :)


   One of the things that you suggested was chase scenes. I have already planned out a few, maybe even in the first chapter/prologue. I know you like car chase scenes as well, so I'm going to try and fit one or two in.


(Okay, maybe not a Lamborghini, but you get the picture :)

   Well, the main character in the Watchmen Files is Mason, of course. Though I have said that the second file is going to be focused more on Conner, Mason is going to be seen more then him. Conner may be absent for a portion of the book.


   Conner's backstory. One you've been waiting for, and one we will finally get to see. The backstory will not be portrayed in a play-by-play, but instead the story will be told by characters, flashbacks, etc.


   Conner's sister, Bernadette. She won't be super big in the story, but she'll be present and talkative.


   New characters. This book is full of them! As you already know, a new villain is emerging from the shadows. He's sort of cray-cray, and pretty brutal.


   Also, some new good guys on set (ehehe...) this time. Digory Pennly (or Penning, I still can't decide on that one) is one of them. He's a odd guy, and can't seem to talk without wide gestures and crazy fun ideas. There are more newcomers, and you'll hear about them as we get closer to the book itself.


   Fear. The main emotional theme in the book. The fear of persecution, even death. And is freedom and running away from trouble the same thing?

   And finally, relationships. Personalities clash. Secrets get out. Maybe even betrayal. Tension, tension, tension.


   Cars. I love them. Not that I know very much about them, but they look like pieces of art :) So they will be involved in the story as well.

Well, I'm trying to squeeze past my writers block from next week, but I hope that you enjoyed this little sneak peek into the future :) Please, tell me what you think (or what I'm missing) in the comments! What would you like to see more/less of? Feedback is super appreciated!

Always Watching,
Darrion

  1. *fangirl squeal* I'm super excited, D! Ooohhhh! Digory Pennly/Penning sounds super cool. :D I think I'm going to like him. :) Hey, I remember a while back {somewhere in your story board} you were thinking of adding Doctor T. Are you still going to add him? Or have you decided against it? Or are you still thinking about it? :D AWESOME!! Epic car chases! And Conner's back story! Yay!! May your writer's block die a painful death, and may you write a billion chapters for us to read. :D Fare thee well!

    Love,
    Hope

    1. Thanks, Hope O! I'm excited too :) Yes, I think Digory will become rather popular. I mean, I like him a lot, who wouldn't? :) Oh yes, Doctor T... well, actually, he's not in this book, unfortunately. But there will be plenty of new characters, don't worry :) Ha! Thanks, my writer's block will hopefully let go of me for next Wednesday.

    1. Thanks, Sarah :) I'm excited to finally write it, too! Bernadette is a little younger than Conner, who was about 25... so that makes her... 23. Yep, that's all my math for the day ;) Yep, car chases are in order!
