Hey everybody! So...my hiatus went on a little longer than I planned. Okay, a lot longer:) I could say that I've been busy traveling the world and fun stuff like that, but that's not the case. I guess I just needed a break. Anyway, I'm excited to jump back into the blogosphere, and I'm really looking forward to catching up with you.
After a year and a half of working on my dystopian, I'm finally working on a new WiP. I was completely burned out with the dystopian. It didn't even resemble the idea I started with (the idea I fell in love with), plus I felt like I was trying to make changes to please the market. Big mistake. So I figured it was time to shelve it. That was harder than I thought it would be. Way back in March, I toyed with the idea of putting it aside for a while, but I was too stubborn to let go. Fast forward to June. After a little over a month of absolutely no writing, a wonderful thing happened. I had one of those Shiny New Ideas (got it from listening to the song If I Die Young by The Band Perry). Anyway, I made an outline, character sketches, found some inspiration pictures, and now I'm drafting again. I'd forgotten how much fun that could be! Currently, the new WiP is at a little over 13,000 words.
Also I'm not sure if you noticed, but my blog address now matches my pen name. It's been aggravating changing my fb page, twitter, and a few forums I visit, but I figured I needed to make the changes now rather than later.
So how have YOU been? I look forward to hearing from you!
