To any and all of you out there who are still checking in on me and this story. . .
I haven’t disappeared, but I’ve been taking a break. Not only have I been sick for the past couple of days, I was also starting to develop a little writer’s block for Chasing Amy. So, instead of forcing it, I decided to take a step back.
Where have I been? This great place called WattPad (http://www.wattpd.com) – READING! I love this site! (Thank you to my always-on-top-of-things Uncle Ben!) It’s a place for any and every writer to converge and share their talents and interests with our most important audience – the reader! It has millions of short stories, novels, poetry, etc. And the genres are as diverse as the people – everything from SyFy, to Romance, and to my latest (and suprising!) new love – Werewolves!
Okay, so maybe it’s not that surprising. I’ve been pushing J.J. Bonds and her vampire novel for months – so you all knew I had a little SyFy Fantasy in me.
Anyway – I would highly recommend that you check this site out! You don’t have to write – you just have to read! It’s a great place for authors to get their ideas off the ground, get feedback, and get discovered! And best of all to you – it’s free! You can read hundreds of books and not pay a dime for it.
While some of the work is immature – which happens when you’re a novice just disovering your voice – alot of the stories have good bones. With a litte tweaking, editing and maturing, I feel there are many “best-sellers” sitting on this site, undiscovered.
I have been LOVING the werewolf/romance stuff so much I’ve been fantasizing about writing one myself. HA! Now that would be different. I like reading and watching SyFy – but when writing I’ve always stuck to romance – especially Christian romance.
This would be different for me – which is why I think I find it so exciting! And in the end, most stories come down to the same points anyway – good vs evil, just in different forms.
So, anyway, I haven’t abandoned my novel or the blog. I’ve just decided to take a break, to read, and to find some inspiration. Which, I actually did – although it was for a different novel that I had started awhile ago, instead of Chasing Amy. But, hey, I’ll take it where I can get it! Maybe one of these days I’ll finish another one!
