SMOL NaNo Update // My Life // SNIPPETS (all the cute!!)

Hey everyone! Funnily enough I was going to post a nonsense post* about how to rate your books, but then I saw that Cait @ Paper Fury posted a similar one (let’s be honest it’s like a thousand times cleverer than mine hahaha) and I was honestly terrified of people just thinking that I had copied her and I DON’T WANT THAT BECAUSE #AWKWARD.

So now it’s half written and maybe I’ll finish it and post it another time haha but not today!

TODAY I decided I would give you guys  a LITTLE sneak peak of my WIP Red as the Storm which STILL needs a new name (suggestions are welcome hahaha), and update you on how my NaNo is going!!

*Nonsense meaning I was trying to be funny and witty and stuff you know??

I think this is pretty self explanatory! I just want to say that I was so far ahead at the beginning and now I’m struggling to stay on track, mostly because my last final is on Wednesday (!!!!!) and I’m studying a TON and losing my mind so don’t mind me.

I am proud to say I think the story is coming along quite nicely! Both main characters have suffered a nice amount, and there will most definitely be more suffering. PLUS there is suffering in the past* that has yet to be revealed, AND I think the plot twists are going to play out very nicely.

SPOILER: I have some really nasty ones planned guys. It’s making me so giddy.**

PLUS, we all know by now about the adorable red fox named Edhan that Lachtna (the main character) adopted. WELL I kind of did something mean to him?? AND IT’S THE FIRST TIME I’VE EVER SHED AN ACTUAL TEAR WHILE WRITING GUYS. And I feel so guilty.

On a side note: I have 16k words and only 2 1/2 chapters. I think the proportions may be a bit off here hahahaha BUT WHO CARES it’s a first draft, amirightoramiright

*10 points to your Hogwarts House for every time I say ‘suffering’!
**NO THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH ME WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT

OKAY SO HERE’S WHERE IT GETS EXCITING. I shall NOT be posting spoilery snippets. These are parts I had a lot of fun writing or that made my toes curl with cuteness, etc. SO GET READY. (INSIDER HINT: I have been frequently sharing little snippets on my bookstagram under the hashtag #NaNo17Peeks!)

The purity of a child’s love ♥

Beautiful scars

Witty banter?????

(I guess you’ll just have to read the book when it gets published to find out what they saw ;))

MUCH CUTE. I ship it. DO YOU??

ALL RIGHT AND THAT’S IT.

This is all from the first couple of chapters, so not too much. But. You guys. I THINK THIS BOOK IS THE ONE. Like. THE ONE I want to send out to agents and stuff and stuff and stuff. I know I still have such a long way to go, but I have never felt so immensely connected to my characters as I do with these, and I want so badly to share this story!

I hope you enjoyed this little mini update!!

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? How is your month going? Are you kicking ass or do you have a lot of catching up to do?? Do you like where your story is going??? HAVE YOU FOUND THE ONE YET??

  1. OMGGGGGG OMG OMG OMG THOSE SNIPPETS. YOUR WRITING IS SO GOOD. I’M ACTUALLY AMAZED AND CRYING AND IN AWE LIKE WOW YOU’RE SO TALENTED AND I REALLY LIKE YOUR WRITING STYLE??? Wow. Ok sorry, my almost-nervous breakdown is over.

    And I’m so proud of your for writing ahead! I’m actually so jealous of that graphic like WOW I wish I was that consistent XD anywho, good luck with your final!!! <3

    1. STAHP YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE ME CRYYYY It’s always a huge relief when people say they actually like my writing??? I COULD KISS YOU RIGHT NOW. Thank you so much!! * cries *

      Haha thanks I knew I would be struggling to keep up what with my finals so I figured it couldn’t hurt. PLUS I’m always really fast at writing the beginnings of books for some reason. I get slower in the middle, and stuck in the end :,)
      Thank you! <3

  2. OOOH a fox??
    EEK THOSE SNIPPETS ARE AMAZING!
    I haven’t cried quite yet while writing… but I have laughed hysterically. I don’t think what I wrote was even funny, it was more of a thing when I was literally going insane. oh well.
    GOOD LUCK ESTHER

  3. Your writing is amazing Esther, and I’m so glad you’re having fun writing with this story and you think this is the one you want to send out into the world as well. If the rest of it is anything like the small snippets you posted I’m sure it’s incredible! 😀
    I’ll say good luck for your final as well, and at least after it’s over on Wednesday you can come back to NaNo and hopefully kick your writing into high gear. I will say 16K words while studying is an incredible achievement.
    Great post, and good luck with both your final and the rest of NaNo! 🙂 <3

  4. ;ALJDF;LASKJFL;ASFJASDFLJAS;D I LOVE THOSE SNIPPETS YOU’RE AN AMAZING WRITER ESTHER AGHAHG. Also I just really like that font lmao.

    Anyways, I’m glad you’re on track! And I FEEL YOU. I usually rock at putting in chapter breaks, but now I’ve just been writing continuous, lengthy scenes and forgetting to do chapters??? Sigh. I’ve fixed it a little but the chapter breaks are at such random parts. And omg I’m so excited!!! I’m so so happy that you think this one is The One because that’s something AMAZING to just know that this is the one you want to get published. Best of luck!!! <3
