A few fun facts about this series

Initially, I wrote Soul Survivor for an annual Wattpad event 2021 Open Novella Contest (ONC) under the title Of Love and Death and Everything In-Between.

The rules of this contest are: Write and edit a brand new novella in the span of thirteen weeks by using one of the eighty provided prompts. It was my second time participating. Check out DragonSky – the result of ONC 2020

The novella did well in the contest, being chosen as Round 2 Ambassador Pick, and then making it to the Longlist, but it needed significantly more than thirteen weeks for me to craft it to its full potential. 

I wonder how it would have done in the contest if I had known back then how to end this story. Would it have won? Perhaps it’s better that it didn’t. I don’t know if I would have pushed myself as hard to fix the story if others had told me it was great as is.

The novella has evolved and expanded into a novel since then, but these two ONC prompts can still be found within the main story concept:

Main prompt

There is a terrible drought ravaging the land, but when the waters recede from the local lake/reservoir, they reveal something no one expected to find.

Secondary prompt

If only you knew you'd meet them, you'd have dressed a bit better. Especially since the only thing you can think of since you've seen their smile is 'Oh shit!'

Two more prompts were incorporated loosely:


Three childhood friends on vacation tell stories from their past while trapped inside one rainy day. As the stories become more and more convoluted, they realize there are things in their past they have been suppressing all this time.


You're never without your playlist, so much so that it dictates every aspect of your life.

To continue the tradition, I wrote the sequel, Soul Seekers, for ONC 2023, using the following prompts:

Main prompt

Accidentally stuck in a place between life and death, you open a door that allowed the dead into the world of the living. Now you and the grim reaper have to pull each of those souls back.

Secondary prompt

You finally build enough courage to talk to that cute someone you see every day on the bus. Their face turns dark as they respond, "You shouldn't be able to see me."

Soul Seekers did even better in the contest, making it to the Shortlist. Following the tradition, it didn’t win, but that’s okay. At this point, I no longer enter ONC to win. Rather, I like the results. The combination of writing prompts, a strict deadline, and a community involvement is a recipe for amazing stories. And I like the concise nature of novellas. Even if I later expand them into novels, it forces me to plan a small story scope, which later allows me to dive as deep into the character’s psyche as I want. And that’s where the magic happens.

Neither of the books is available on Wattpad anymore. Revised and expanded, they have both found their new home on Campfire, where the series will continue.
