I found this awhile back on the boards and was going to do it and then I never did. So I’m doing it here, especially since I am definitely more involved in my plot now and know what I want.
They are yes/no questions but a few you might need to answer further in depth, please feel free to.
Does your book have?:
Romance? A little – Boy meets girl, flirty stuff but no actual romance until the absolute end (which would then move into book 2)
Adventure? Some – a bit of “paranormal” stuff that requires a bit of adventure
A fight for power? I don’t think so yet.
A war? No.
A king? No.
A queen? Nope.
Jealousy? I’m sure there will be some in there somewhere. It’s a small town.
Backstabbing? That I’m trying to avoid.
Forbidden love? No.
Hatred? Not yet.
A death? Yes, there is a death in the small town. But only one.
More than 1 death? Past deaths that are talked about. Not happening during the story.
More than 2? Perhaps in the past.
More than 3? Haven’t gotten there yet.
MORE?!?!?!? (even if not MC’s) I doubt if there would be much more than 3 or 4 past deaths talked about.
Paranoid character? No.
Low self esteem? No not that is talked about or hinted about.
long hair? Yes.
no hair? Uhm….I’m sure they’ll be a bald guy in there somewhere.
black hair? Maybe.
a world other than our world? Yes (paranormal)
other creatures (unnamed)? No.
A mystery? Yes.
More than 5 subplots? I don’t think so – at least not that I can forsee right now.
Yummy food? Definitely – there’s a chef – he serves yummy food.
gross food? I’m hoping not – he’s the best meal in town (and for miles outside of town)
A plot point where the background music would give you chills down your spine? Yes.
omnipotent force? (gods, fate, etc.) No.
A really annoying character that it nearly killed you to NOT kill him/her? No.
A really annoying character that you killed :P? No.
A character that you killed or will kill in the future? No.
Really cool names? (not commonly used, i.e. Eragorn) Dravyn or Draven (still perfecting the spelling)
Really nice people? Very much so – that sweet small town atmosphere will play a part.
Really cool people? Yes.
A plot point thats REALLY confusing but is understandable in the end? I don’t think so. Well, yes maybe – the whole paranormal thing seems to be a bit of a mystery and somewhat confusing.
That is all. Carry on. (oh and leave your answers in the comment field if you’d like)
