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 ♥
(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??
