And the winner is...

So I got to thinking, and maybe a month was a little too long to run a poll for, especially when I am anxious to get to writing.
I am announcing the winning story from the poll, and it is.... EMPRESS (Actual title to follow eventually.)
Thank you to everyone who voted and commented, I have taken your thoughts into consideration, and some of you have inspired me to pursue things in different directions as well!

Now, if you all would give me about a week and I should have the first installment of something for you to read, tag along with my development as I go on my companion blog, I'm sure I'll be asking for your help there if I get stuck!

Thanks as well for your kind condolences regarding my friend who passed away, the next few weeks will be a struggle for his family (wife and 4 kids) as well as the many people who worked for him as everything is set into order and we begin to move on. His compassion and inspiration will be sorely missed by those of us who knew him.

Sorry I didn't really get a chance to read your story ideas and give you some feedback. I will be subscribing, though, and I'll be keeping up with your chapters. :D

I'm glad you finally chose an idea to pursue! Empress sounds amazing. It's almost like "why didn't I think of that"!! LOL ... Thanks for the inspiring words on my blog. :) I think I'll sit down tonight with a cup of coffee and see what happens. Will my writer's block be cured? (I hope so!) Maybe my characters will finish the story for me!

You are quite welcome. If us struggling writers didn't get support from each other, we'd really be in trouble!
I am making progress on my story, doing a little research at the moment, as I felt I needed to touch on a sensitive topic, I wanted to be sure I was proceeding correctly.
I don't know about you, but my characters always have ways of working things out. Might be different from how I might have done things in their place, but it works for them. Listen to your characters and don't try to force them in directions they don't want to go!
