So, a couple of weeks ago, March 16th to be perfectly accurate, I decided to start writing a book. Now to be completely fair, I’ve had this story in the back of my mind for years, and I do mean years. No, I don’t think you get this, this story is the origin story for the first novel that I had set out to write back when I was 11-years-old! Does that make sense?
Okay, let’s back up. When I was 11, I wanted to write a fantasy book. I’m not going to lie, it was pretty much Harry Potter but from a girl’s perspective, but I do digress. As I set to write that book, I ran across the desire to explain to my main character some of her family histories. So I came up with a surprisingly intricate back story. Well, that back story has loosely become what I am working on now, with, if I might say, some major improvements to the plot and characters.
Since endeavoring to tackle this project, I have been hammering out this thing like a speed demon. I am 26 days into writing and I’m feeling very satisfied with my current word count, which I am doing a very silly happy dance for right now (I’m at 27,244 words for anyone who would like to join me in my celebratory dance).
So, moving forward, I will continue to post any random writing that I happen to produce, cute pics of my sillies, and of course any updates about how the book is coming along!
