RTW: WiP Love List

This Week’s Topic is: 

Inspired by Stephanie Perkins’ post on Natalie Whipple’s blog, what is your novel’s “Love List”?

Hm, this is a thought provoking and interesting topic. Now just to pick which WiP ?? I’ll do two love lists, one as a teaser for my book Obscura Burning due for release in December from Etopia Press and one for my WiP:

Obscura Burning, YA science fiction

  • Bisexual male protagonist
  • Quantum entanglement
  • Navajo mythology
  • Interracial relationships
  • The setting – near Shiprock, New Mexico
  • The soundtrack
  • Tenderness of the characters
  • Scars
  • Fire
  • Apocalyptic themes
  • How one tiny decision can have such a profound domino effect
  • Split realities



And now for the WiP tentatively titled Automatic Heroes, YA science fiction/mythpunk

  • Set in Finland
  • Myth retelling
  • Awesome superpowers
  • My MC’s knack for describing things in his own special way
  • Zombies
  • Determination
  • The bond between family
  • Self-sacrifice
  • Scars (I see a pattern here)
  • Wolves
  • Snow
  • Hatred for summer
  • The naming convention



Do you have a love list for your WiP?

    Ooh, both sound intriguing! Love how one is fire and one is snow, makes for some great atmospheric details I bet.

      Thank you. Yeah, they are the complete opposites in term of setting: one is dry and hot, the other is wet and cold. It makes for fun writing 🙂

  • Juliana Haygert

    I’m with Crystal. So cool that one is about fire and the other has snow. Almost opposites. I like it 😉
    Great lists!

    • Suzanne_Writer

      Thank you! I liked your list too 🙂

  • I’m all about anything with super powers. 🙂

    • Suzanne_Writer

      😀 Yay! Me too. Can’t get enough of that theme.

    Scars are cool okay. Scars are cool. It’s all about where they’re placed and how the character gets them. Thanks for sharing. 😀

    • Suzanne_Writer

      Too true. I love scarred characters, physically and emotionally. Every scar tells a story.

  • This one really grabbed me: How one tiny decision can have such a profound domino effect. Terrific lists – very intriguing!

    • Suzanne_Writer

      😉 Thank you and I’m thrilled that one in particular grabbed you since that’s the impetus for the whole story.
