The Legend of Eugene

Young Adult Fantasy | #TheLegendOfEugene

Eugene Tanaka wants nothing more than to be an ordinary teenager. He used to be one, before he was involuntarily summoned to another world, forced to become their hero and battle monsters, and then dumped back into this world as if none of it had ever happened. He’s struggling with PTSD, reverse culture shock, and phantom pains from battle wounds his body no longer carries. Just when he’s finding his new normal, a girl from that world comes looking for him. His past actions had unintended consequences, leaving her people on the brink of extinction. Will he refuse to save the world he resents or will he follow her back to rescue them from his mistakes? If he goes, he may not make it home again.

The most important thing in writing is to finish. A finished thing can be fixed. A finished thing can be published. A finished thing can be made into a movie.

An unfinished thing is just a dream. And dreams fade if you don't hold on tight enough.

So finish the thing.

“I can’t read your future,” the gypsy said, peering into her crystal ball, “The branches in your lifeline are too #manifold.”

“No one can read my future,” the time traveler said.

“If you already knew that, why’d you come into my tent?”

“I came to tell you your future.” #vss365

Writing is not just the time spent hammering the keyboard. It’s brainstorming in the shower, lines of dialogue that appear while you’re driving, characters that form while you’re eating, and so dear IRS audit that is why I have declared everything a writing expense

One thing they don't tell you about writing is that in order to stay relevant, you need to keep putting out work.

Which often means multiple projects.
