Editing complete. Chopped off a good four pages from the outline and tightened up the rest. Switched a bunch of things around in the process. Going to do some character sheets so I can keep track of the cast. Writing will probably be put on hold for a few days, so I can deal with this final for class, and I'll be getting started on Tuesday because I can't wait until April.
Working Title: Genesis Machine (this will be getting changed)
Genre: MG Fantasy
Summary: When a young boy goes to sleep on the eve of his tenth birthday and signs a contract within the strangest dream he's ever had, he has no idea of what's to come. He begins to dream of a hidden sanctum and is told that as the only one to ever reach it it's up to him to claim the power at its heart for his own. However, in order to do so he'll need to contend with the echoes of the dead god that once inhabited it. The daytime hours hold their own surprises when he discovers the awakening of his own wondrous powers by summoning forth a childhood imaginary friend.
But trouble rears its head in short order and soon the boy is pursued by two men who seek his power for their own ends. Not only that, but he begins to get the feeling that there is more to the sanctum than he was told. What really waits at the heart of the sanctum? Why does the dead god sound more human than divine in his writings? And what happened to the second person in those writings?
Things aren't what they seem during the day or night. And if this boy doesn't figure out the truth then his uncertain future won't last very long.
