SO some of you have been asking for updates on my writing?!? AND OMG THANK YOU I AM FLATTERED THAT YOU CARE :,)
I currently have SEVERAL works in progress. I keep coming up with new book ideas when I still have 2983407 plot holes in all my others.
It’s okay though.
I have it all under control*
I AM GOING TO ANSWER ALL OF YOUR WILDEST QUESTIONS NOW so get ready**
*she says as dragons devour her whole and her characters mob her for killing them off
**YES questions you may not have asked BUT I’M GOING TO ANSWER THEM ANYWAYS
What is Feathers Black Even About???
SO as you may (or may not) know, Feathers Black is a dark, gender reversed retelling of Sleeping Beauty!
The gist: The evil sorceress threatens to kill the King’s son (duh), so the King has him sent away to live in seclusion with no idea what’s going on.
What people don’t know is that the sorceress has an actual legit reason for hating the King?!?! gasp
Prince Aaron grows up in the middle of the forest and doesn’t know anyone, and then one day he meets a small girl (who is actually older than him) on accident. She obviously tries to kill him, because #suspicious. This is when he learns that apparently it’s illegal to live there, and she’s convinced someone is paying him to follow her
Eventually she figures out he’s not lying and that he is actually just incredibly ignorant. AND THEN they go on great adventures together, OBVIOUSLY. In case you hadn’t figured it out by now: Prince Aaron is Princess Aurora, and Phillia is Prince Phillip, except she’s an orphan, and not a Princess…
How Many Books Have You Written?
WELL it depends on your definition of the word, written. I have several almost first drafts, and even more half-outlines. And EVEN more ideas that have not been outlined yet. As of now, I have one finished book, one first draft, and one almost-second draft!
I’m almost done with editing the first draft of Feathers Black! And then I hope to maybe get some beta readers but also maybe not. WE SHALL SEE.
Do You Participate in NaNoWriMo?!?
Why thank you for asking!
For the past two years I’ve participated in NaNo and WON. cue confetti
If you don’t know what NaNo is, it stands for National Novel Writing Month! It’s a place for writers to set themselves a goal (usually 50k words) for the month of November!
I’m planning on participating again this year, BUT I CAN’T DECIDE WHICH BOOK TO WRITE, so I’m asking YOU
WHERE ARE THOSE SNIPPETS YOU PROMISED US???
DISCLAIMER: It’s mildly terrifying that you want snippets XD but without further ado…
Too much flirting
“I’m Aaron,” he said. His voice squeaked on the ‘A’ as it had often done in his adolescence. Why? he despaired, feeling his cheeks grow hotter.
“Ooh, Aaron. What a pretty name!”
And – if it was possible – he blushed deeper. He was fairly sure he had never heard the word pretty in any relation to himself in his entire life. “Pleased to meet you.”
“Likewise,” Onyx replied, giving a sultry wink.
“Onyx,” Phillia said sternly. It seemed they had been through this sort situation before.
“Sorry,” she said, though she didn’t sound much like she was.
Ren threw a stony glance back at them. At the look on Onyx’s face, his eyes narrowed, and he looked at Aaron. Aaron quickly looked away, heart pounding. A few breathless moments passed in which Aaron was sure that Ren would come back there and pound him to a pulp. Then the burly man turned away with a grunt and continued walking. Aaron’s shoulders slumped and he let out a relieved breath.
“So you and Ren?” he asked, dreading the answer.
Onyx beamed. “He’s the sweetest, isn’t he?”
“Um,” Aaron said, not sure what to say. “I guess.”
When food is all that matters
She watched his eyes light up as he tasted the same wonderful symphony that she did. She couldn’t stifle the little twitch at the corner of her mouth. His eyes seemed to be getting bigger by the second. She was sure that if she introduced him to anymore new things, they would pop. She had to admit though, it would be funny to see.
“What is this thing called?” he asked around the roll, which was only halfway chewed in his mouth. He swallowed a chunk. “It is divine. A godsend. Magnificent!”
“It’s a steamed dumpling,” she explained around her mouthful. “It was first brought over by the Meisins a hundred years ago.”
“Well, I hope someone thanked those Easterners.”
OKAY THAT’S ALL my heart can’t take anymore has heart attack
I promise there is also lot’s of blood and revenge but I thought I’d save those bits for myself for a little while hehe
Don’t You Have Pretty Aesthetic Boards You Like to Throw At Us?
WHY YES I DO.
Here is my Pinterest board for Feathers Black:
Aaaand since I don’t like to discriminate, I won’t post the board for Red as the Storm because I don’t have one for the unnamed WIP yet and it gets jealous esily.
ANY THOUGHTS? ANY?? * dies of the nerves * What did you think of the snippets? Have you got a favorite? What are some parts of your writing process?!? Do you write?? What are you writing write (pun intended) now?
