July 13th, 2013 I wrote the words, “The dark sky was ablaze.” I thought I was writing a short story.
By the end of chapter one, I knew that wasn’t what was happening. The first chapter of my first novel had been completed and 48,500+ words stood between it and “The End”.
Yesterday at approximately 8:05 PM I hit 50,000 words. This has been one of my biggest accomplishments, second only to nearly 14 year’s of marriage, and possibly completing my first 5K race.
On Instagram over the weekend I promised that I would reveal the plot/story of my novel. It has been something I’ve kept secreted away from all but a few people. Fearful of judgement, scoffing, being told, “That’s already been done, move on sister.” [Oh! Hello, my INFP is showing!]
So soon….I will share the big reveal. It is a story I am excited about. One that has literally been haunting my dreams since January 2012.
See you soon!
