I loved reading & writing in high school, but I haven't done it since.

During my last couple years in high school, I was writing a novel tentatively titled Medieval Rivalry, and had two or three of the teachers proofreading & checking it. I had gotten about 10 chapters done, but I haven't touched it since graduation.

It featured a young peasant from a small village getting the chance of achieving his dream of becoming a knight, but right before he's officially knighted, the dragons of the Northern Mountains make a sudden attack on the kingdom after hundreds of years of peace, and the king distracted by the coming war, wouldn't be able to knight the young man.
He would still become a hero though, as he would find himself in an unlikely friendship with the dragon prince, Firescales, and together they'd uncover a mystery surrounding a disgraced knight & an arcane sorcerer who was supposedly sealed away 1,000 years ago, and would have to work together to avert the war.

I became too ambitious with the project, planning on making it a trilogy (First Book: trying to avert a war with the dragons, and finding out the truth behind the attack. Second Book: the hero travelling across the continent on an adventure to discover a sacred sword, in order to defeat the invading army of the arcane sorcerer. Third Book: the hero, and his small group of friends, make a treacherous journey to the arctic continent to confront the sorcerer & defeat him for good.). It just became too much, I think.

That happens to pretty much all my stories. After a while you just gotta let go of some ideas, or set them aside for the "if the first book is good" pile, and concentrate on refining the ideas you already have. I only learned this recently after having to scrap a comic series I had intended to make that would've lasted me a good 10-15 years, in which I designed it specifically to allow for as many ideas as I could come up with. The problem being that after a while ideas started conflicting with others and I had trouble keeping track of all of my ideas...and the whole thing started to become a mess and drift away from its initial purpose.

^Yeah, I kept on going back and altering earlier parts of the story which is another thing that I think held it back.

For example, at first I just wanted to kind of skim over the years he spent training in the barracks, but later on I wanted to go back & spend 3-5 chapters there, showing his growth.

I'm just a very innocent person - all my stories never go down... "that road", if you know what I mean. :P
My stories can tend to get a bit dark sometimes, though; and rather unsettling... I need to go find something I can post here as an example!

I guess I might as well share mine. The story begins with a teenage boy named Jay living with his father (the mother died at childbirth) in a secluded Floridian swamp. The Jay's father is a genetic scientist who is currently working on creating the ultimate seed that can grow anywhere and possibly end world hunger. But when nonbody was looking, Jay snuck into a machine that combined the DNA of plant species and accidentally activated it. His father came too late and later discovered that Jay now possesses the ability to control all vegetation and harness the sun's energy.

That pretty much takes up the first chapter. I'm thinking of delving into the teen's predicament, like getting picked on when he goes to school due to his weird situation before going into a depressive state and attempting suicide. After failing suicide (the plant DNA ends up saving him) Jay will come to realize that maybe there is a reason behind his new ability.

Beyond that the antagonist is a scientist who used to work for Jay's father. His plan is to launch a rocket to another distant world before destroying this one due to his belief that the rest of humanity is beyond hope of redemption, and thus decides to play God and recreate his own earth using the rocket he stockpiled with resources, such as genetically altered creatures designed to live on the new planet.

A support character and possible love interest is a girl about Jay's age who lives in captivity deep within the evil scientist's underground lab. She was an early experiment to see if airborne humans would be useful on another world, and as such had a pair of wings genetically grafted onto her back when she was a child. Basically, she's a manmade angel.

As for personality traits I'm not too far into it. Jay will go through several phases from happy and upbeat, to dark and depressed, to like he was before, but with a more mature and no nonsense side. The evil scientist I want to be dynamic. Like he won't be totally insane and has second thoughts about his actions and even feels sorry for the troubles of the world. Though at the same time his twisted mind tries to justify his plan that the earth isn't worth preserving.

The girl is the most difficult part. I'm not sure if I want her to be shy and scared, innocent, a tough tomboy, or other personality possibilities.

Geez that's a long post. :o
