A Little Jump Into My Story: CHAPTER 1

Hello everyone! Today I was going to have a Valentine's Day Party Post but my camera lost battery so I sadly, could not. But today I wanted to share some of my story/novel that I have been writing. I'm not the best writer, but I enjoy it and that's what matters.

Undecided Name-CHAPTER 1: New York

Breathe Christina, it is going to be alright. Just open your eyes. Slowly.....

I opened my eyes to look around me. Everything was dark, no crack of light, just dark. Like night, like the darkest time of night when nothing is visible except the street lights.

I have been waiting for 4 months for the crack of light to appear.(of course, I am supplied with food and water) That is when my journey begins.

My journey? To find the man, and stop him before it is too late. I don't know what his name is, (to my people, it is Mighty) but I do know what he looks like.

I glanced down at the glossy picture of Mighty. I stared at him, wondering how he became so powerful. Mighty rules my world, in the year 2029. He is a fierce ruler (more like a dictator) and I have been sent here to stop him. No one knows what might happen if I do, but we believe that if it can save our world, it is worth it.

Okay Christina, go over the rules one more time. Don't destroy anything. Talk as little as possible. Don't get stuck in the city. Remember your mission. Save Earth.

CRACK! Huh? I turned and saw a big crack erupting with light. It looked like heaven, the beautiful light shining in. The crack turned into a door, welcoming me to walk through it.

Outside of the beautiful door was a beautiful city, New York. I ran back into the box, grabbed my supplies and the box disappeared.

New York was a beautiful city. People moving everywhere, signs and cars blinking, and the buildings. Oh the buildings, they were amazing, but not quite as amazing as my wonderful city, New New York. But we don't need to get into detail about that.

I scrambled through my  old tattered bag for a few old dollars from this time and the picture. On the back of the picture was an address. I quickly ran to the sidewalk and got onto a taxi. I handed him the picture, the money, and off we went!
      END OF FIRST CHAPTER
 
 
That was the first chapter! (As you can see, I don't really add too many details :P) I'm having a mini contest, who can come up with the best title and cover art for this book. Post your entry on your blog (it doesn't have to be a separate post) or email to me! If you would like to see more, let me know. 
 
I've seen a lot of writers do this, so this how I imagine Christina to look like:
 
 
Thanks for reading,
Noor

  3. Dear Noor,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog ^^ Your comment really made my day. You must be really interested in biology to have searched up some of the words I used! If you'd like, next time I'll add some explanations about what I'm saying (maybe even pictures too) so you won't have to go through the trouble of looking things up :)
    I'd like to contribute my ideas about what your book cover and book title should be. What exactly is your story about? I assume it's dystopia ^^ perhaps science fiction dystopia or simply futuristic?
    Have a great day :D

    1. Thanks so much Catalina. It's more of a science fiction dystopia, you're right! It's about a girl who came to the past to save her world.

  9. This first chapter sounds intriguing. :) It's great that you've started to write, and if you'd like to write more chapters, I'm not sure if you've heard of this, but you can use this website and app called Wattpad, and it's for unpublished and undiscovered writers to upload their work. :) It's a great site because you can gain some readers, some valuable insights, and upload your own cover as well. And Wattpad allows the stories to be made copyright so it's unlikely people will steal it too. :) If you do need a heads up for Wattpad, my sister uploads her work on the site, and I can attempt to ask her to welcome you there, haha. Happy writing. :)
