The use of the plural in this section is somewhat optimistic (considering I’ve only written one standalone novel or pessimistic (given that it implies I won’t be writing any more stories in that world however much I might like to).
Basically my current standalone is a nerdy romance set partially in an MMORPG and all about gaming, gamers and virtual spaces.
I’ve no idea what else might end up in this category as it’s sort of definitionally eclectic.
So, yeah, I play Heroes of Legend, y’know, the MMO. I’m not like obsessed or addicted or anything. It’s just a game. Anyway, there was this girl in my guild who I really liked because she was funny and nerdy and a great healer. Of course, my mates thought it was hilarious I was into someone I’d met online. And they thought it was even more hilarious when she turned out to be a boy IRL. But the joke’s on them because I still really like him.
And now that we’re together, it’s going pretty well. Except sometimes I think Kit—that’s his name, sorry I didn’t mention that—spends way too much time in HoL. I know he has friends in the guild, but he has me now, and my friends, and everyone knows people you meet online aren’t real. I mean. Not Kit. Kit’s real. Obviously.
Oh, I’m Drew, by the way. This is sort of my story. About how I messed up some stuff and figured out some stuff. And fell in love and stuff.
