New story.

I've just submitted the first chapter of a new story.

I am still working on the prison ship, and a couple of other stories. However lately, I've realized that I always tend to write stories that are going to be very long. So lately I've been trying to write shorter stories. Ones that I know I can get finished before life interrupts. Recently I've wrote a couple of stories where the story take place over a few weeks, so they are/or will be around 10-15 chapters long. But I still thought even these might be too long, so I've been trying to come up with story ideas that can be shorter still. Ideas that cover a time span of a day or two seemed ideal.

The slave girl, the geek boy and the body snatcher (still not sure about the title) is the first such story. I have already finished writing the story, and it is currently 4 chapters long, with a couple of those chapters longer than the rest. However I'm still making some small changes and edits to the later chapters, so I could change things a bit. So it will be between 3 and 5 chapters long once I post it.

I've decided to focus on these shorter stories for now, so that I can try out different ideas and styles and be able to focus on improving different areas of my writing skills in each story. At the moment, I really want to focus on improving my character creation skills.

Depending on the response to this new story, I might make it into a series, based around the same idea (the transmerge force) or character.

As I said at the start, I am still working on the Prison ship as well, but the progress is slow, and I'm unlikely to post any more of it until I have it finished (or at least book 1 finished).

I hope you all enjoy the new story.
