...until you think you're almost done. Then comes a character on the run, with more plot twists. ;)
Yes, that was super random. It's actually a sing-song rhyme about doing dishes. I just changed it to apply to writing. xD Because how many times have we thought a story is coming to an end, and then a character decides to do something else and a whole new dimension is added to the story?!
Anyway...augh. It's been forever since I did a post totally dedicated to writing. So. I decided to update you on how a few of my projects are coming.
--A Question of Honor--
It has hurt me, and yet at the same time shown me the beauty a single beam of light can bring into a hurting world.
Life it hard. War is hard. It hurts. And it changes people. Because after surviving through a living hell, nothing will ever look the same.
...they would learn together what it was like to go from living beneath gray skies and the constant threat of attack, to a place where the flowers still dared to show color and the sky seemed to always be blue.
(From A Question of Honor)
A week after The Silent Blade was published, I completed the 3rd draft.
After that, I sent it off to my editor for the first go-through, and two alpha readers.
Also...For nearly a year now I have had a secret pinterest board for this story, but now it is public! So if you're you'd like to see some of the story ideas/pictures I've pinned...you can now see it here!
And even if you don't have a pinterest account, you should be able to view it. :)
That is how that project is coming.
Since I'm kinda taking a break from it, I'm super excited to be starting the book that will come directly after it. I have a tentative title, but I'm not sure if I'll be using it yet, so...I'm not going to share it. ;)
It's still during the Second World War. Some of the minor characters from the first book are there, and you get to know them a little better. This book will take place almost exclusively in France, so research for that has been quite interesting. Here are a few pictures I've found just as references for when I write.
That's pretty much all I'm currently working on. I have many ideas for other stories, but I haven't done anything else other then dream about them. ;) Of course, sometime they'll probably come to life as a short story or some other such thing, but for now they're just waiting.
So, tell me. How is your writing coming? What helps inspire you to write? What's your favorite time period to write/read?
Have a wonderful weekend!
