I am currently working on a story that I hope to finish soon. It is called Tower to the Sky. It takes place in a dystopian future and in the last known city on Earth. The story centers around the rivalry between two twin brothers who have lived very different lives. The first lived his life in poverty, struggling to survive the harsh city, while his twin was being groomed for power, expected to run the city by his father.
The first brother was separated from his family due to unforeseen circumstances and was able to keep going because he was with the woman he loves. It drove him and made him able to withstand whatever the horrible city threw at him.
Now, the other brother is in charge of the city after his father’s health declined. He has a firm strong hold over the city, but still longs for as much power as he can get. The difference between what drives the brothers will be a focus as their rivalry is rekindled with both brothers adults at this time.
The story will have a few science fiction elements but will mostly be driven by the characters of the story. As it stands, the story is at 13,370 words, so I have a lot of work ahead of me currently. I hope to finish it before long, but I do have a few projects that I am working on besides Tower to the Sky. I will try and post my progress, so that anyone interested can keep up with its status.
