Title: Survivor
Original Fiction
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Prompt: Cloud (for [community profile] fiction_drabbles)

It was the last time she ever heard her own name. Frightening mushroom clouds had blocked out the sunlight, and the world as she knew it had disappeared in an instant. The memory of that day stayed with her, even though the very thought of it made her heart ache with longing.

Yet, somehow she had survived.

"A fantasy," she thought, as her eyes scanned the silent valley below. "The word 'survivor' isn't just a fantasy."

She knew her chances of finding anyone alive were slim, but she continued, allowing what little hope she had left to carry her onward.

The world is painted so vividly here in just a few short words. Very powerful use of imagery.

Man I really have a thing for stories with post apocalyptic settings. As I should since I'm writing one with that theme. ^-^

Yeah, it's my baby-monster project, you might have heard me bitching about it before. XD There was going to be only one maybe-novel-length story, but with all of my notes for the back story for how everything happened it's now going have a prequel. So now I have two projects.

Tell me about it; I first thought up the idea about five years ago as I was laying in bed staring at my ceiling. I wrote one page of notes on a spare piece of paper and then set it aside for latter when my art took over my life for awhile, and I forgot all about it. About five months ago I found it again and was then attacked by a million more ideas for it like the rabid animal that it is.

My progress? :glares at the folder on her laptop:

I have a basic outline of the first few chapters, the back-story of the current world the story is set in, info for most of the characters that I've come up with so far, sketches of the same characters(the artist in me couldn't stop itself), and some background stories for some very important items that come into play in the story.

Now all I have to do is finish the outline and then start on the first draft. XD

And that's not even counting all the fanfic projects I have going on as well.

I'm happy I found it too. It was folded-up in another note book of mine in a box under my bed, lying in wait for the right moment to pounce. Cheeky bastard that it is. XD

God, that sounds just like what I end up doing during my 'writing process', five hours later and I only have half a page done if I'm lucky. XD I'm not too worried about how slow it is, but I think I need to buckle down and work on it at least once a week. I should be able to do that. ^^;

I don't really see it as a 'top secret project', if it seems that way it's 'cause I'm still not sure about how many of the ideas I get for it are actually going to stay. As it is there's a lot going on and I my have to scrap some of them; I'll probable end up using them for other projects. But if I do post it anywhere(and I probably will) it would be here on DW.

I have a box filled to the brim with them! XD

I know how that is, I'll spend days just reading online and nothing will be going on but when I decide to write or draw suddenly everyone in the world needs my attention. When that happens I just want to punch someone. ^^;

I plan on really working on them on my next day off...if I get one anyway. lol
