There are updates I must tell you now. I’m at 49k in last year’s NaNo project. That means I just have to write the ending and I’m done! Then I can turn my attention to getting ready for this year’s book which is going to be the exact opposite of a fairy-tale retelling…it’s going to be a contemporary book set in contemporary times.
I’m feeling so much like a little kid right now.
Also my co-author and I have been waiting for our edits and they came in! I’m so excited I can barely breathe.
But first let me say, the idea of making Cinderella into a story with dragons in it was just an idea I had and it grew and grew until it got to this point. I can not believe I was able to put so much into it. I know it’s not great writing. But it’s more then I’ve ever written in my entire life.
I won’t talk much about it now. I’ll share a video that kept me going through the toughest part of my MS.
I cried after watching this. The song “Impossible” had been stuck in my head all morning, so that’s why I decided to watch the video and later that evening I sung it as a watered the garden. It just reminded me how to dream. I think sometimes it’s easy to forget that. It’s easy to forget the power of dreaming and having faith in something nobody else may believe in. In a way that’s woven into my story, but it’s mostly become my motto as a writer.
I want to write some more short stories soon, so keep your eyes open for those. I did post some on Wattpad.
I am going to go check out my edits now. I’m so excited. You guys are in for a treat. One of the serial novels I’m co-authoring will be up on Figment and Wattpad soon.
I guess I should also get breakfast.
