Anthropomorphic dystopian 1
The above is a mouthful, but that is not its real name, aren’t you relieved?– its real title will give away too much about what is in the story and we don’t want to do that this early on!
The general themes in the story are as follows;
And last but not least – comedy
The above story has been inspired by;
The animals of Farthing Wood
Wind in the Willows
Mad Max beyond the thunderdome
Secret life of pets
The hunger games
Rude dog and the dweebs
And very much Tim Burton inspired
The above is the work that is likeliest to be sent out first and it is only really a couple of months away from being perfected to its final draft! However, with the upcoming surgeries I am going to be having, it is best that this work should not be sent any sooner than mid-autumn, potentially before winter – though November to the second week of January is not the best time to send anything to an agent – it’s their busiest time of the year!
So unless it’s polished before NaNoWriMo 2022, it may not be sent until late January 2023, but I am working on it being sent out by early October!
This book will be a series, so this is only book one that will be polished by then and I know that agents are not keen on new writers sending in series as a first approach, but I think this is something special and I am sure they will see it too?
I have spoken to a handful of very close friends about this story and I have several people excited over it – this is why this story became my primary focus and I dropped my original first novel whilst I do this one. Because, the other story I think should be my first novel – is actually less exciting to my friends than this project.
Some friends think I should ditch it as a novel and make it a comic, but I have had other friends suggest that my prose like writing does better as a novel and that to write it as a comic may actually kill the story’s effect overall.
Time will tell – it may be a case that it may turn into a comic a few years down the line, I don’t know if that sort of thing happens, but I suppose it’s possible?
Anyway – happy reading!
