Work in Progress

If I don’t seem to be around as much as when the new year first kicked off, it is because I have become immersed in a new book. I was hit with this spectacular idea and I just can’t let it go.

I have been a writing fiend the last while, and I have decided that writing this book is like chocolate – ADDICTING. Plot points and twists are always popping up in my head and I have to jot stray notes down on paper anytime my computer isn’t near. I’m calling my friends and gleefully giggling over things my characters decide to do.

Granted, I am still keeping things in balance with being a mom and wife, but I my fingers and brain itch for the quiet moments when the kids are in bed and chores accomplished that I can attack my book again.

I am even dreaming it.

It will be a YA novel, called the Forbidden Fairytale. I’m 13,000 words into it and counting – the fun has just begun!

    Wish I were “immersed” in my mss right now. It feels like pulling teeth right.
