I am once again diving into National Novel Writing Month! My story is titled, Intersecting the Abyss. Here is the synopsis from my NaNoWriMo page:
Two ships meet in the vast, empty abyss between stars. One is huge, if not massive. It is a “Millenial Ship,” a massive colony ship travelling from Earth to a new a star system. It left Earth almost 800 years ago, and it still isn’t even halfway to its destination. The second ship, while far from small, is a dot compared to the first. It is less than a decade old, and is a Cruiser. One of many sent in an attempt to find the Millenial Ship.
There are dark secrets on the Millenial Ship. Dark enough on the surface, but even darker underneath. The Cruiser, her crew and her mission seem straightforward. But is their more to her depths as well? Were there other cruisers sent as well, or did Comman know the Millenial ship’s trajectory all along?
And then there is the question of psykers. Both ships have them, but only one officially knows of them. What role, will they play? Are they merely just another character? Or are they really the director?
I am planning on adding an excerpt as well, but for now I am 1,589 words in!
