So lately I have not been in much of a blogging mood lately. I have been pretty stressed with some personal stuff the past couple of weeks. Thankfully that is over now, so I can get back to life. Isn’t it amazing how much something can affect your life without you even realizing it? The human mind is capable of such amazing things. So much is going on right now, I have no clue where to start.
My parasols came in last week! Jacob donated money to the dance program so I could have them. I am so thankful that I got those, they look wonderful and the girls love to dance with them. (Pictures to come soon)
I finished the first draft of TLT, it didn’t get to 50K, and it needed a lot of work. I sent it to Rachel, and a few people from the Go Teen Writers page, and I got some really good feed back from them. One of them gave me some great tips, and did a really in-depth edit. She should be an editor, she pointed out the good and the bad, and not only did she tell me what needed to fix, she showed me how to fix it. I am not trashing it. I am going to keep working on it, but I need to do a lot more world building, and I need to develop some sub-plots and whatnot. More importantly…
I have two new project.
Project one. I woke up the other morning at four, and knew what I needed to write. I had a title and main idea. I thought I wrote it down, well I thought wrong. Thankfully, I was able to remember it. So I started writing it. I have no clue how to write it yet, it’s not a normal fiction book. It is actually a non-fiction, which is new to me. I won’t say any more than that. It is a book that I feel needs to be written, but no one is going to even know the name of until I am sure about it.
Project two. I started writing it a couple of weeks ago just to get it out of my head, but it is actually turning in to a book. It wasn’t supposed to be anything, just random paragraphs when I needed to get out of my head; but it is turning in to so much more than that. It is non-fiction, and it has a Faults in Our Stars vibe about it. (That was not intentional!) I am not sure where this book is going, but it has a title that I have fallen in love with, but will not release yet.
I feel like both of these books are more important than TLT. These stories need to be told, and I am the one to tell them. I will keep you posted.
I have been spending time on the schools cheer program, but that is another blog post. I shall write again soon, I promise.
