Okay, so, a blog. When it was recommended to me to start this, I wasn't sure how to do it, or what to say. Well, I've successfully managed the how. Unfortunately, I'm still not sure on the what. Honestly, I'm not that interesting. I go to school. I work. I parent. And I write. Which is why this exists.
I have written stories since elementary
school. During middle school I wrote my original characters into Harry
Potter, I became an X-man, I was an ice skater. During my Buffy and
Angel years, I wrote characters who slayed vampires, most often
substituting my characters into familiar scenarios.
fanfic for a while, in a LOT of areas. Buffy, Angel, Dark Angel,
Twilight, Harry Potter, Gilmore Girls. I think that might be all, but I
might have missed a couple. Finally, a few years ago, I got an idea
worth writing down. An original idea.
I had been writing "books"
for a while. Here is how it went: 1. Buy a Five-Star five subject
college ruled notebook. 2. Carry it EVERYWHERE and write at all times.
3. Each chapter shall be precisely 5 pages front and back. 4. Each
"book" shall have exactly twenty chapters.
It was my formula. I
read a lot of Nora Roberts, in which people fell in love and had a
happily ever after in 200 pages or less. I liked the stories, so that
was the way I wrote. Eventually, I outgrew it. I wanted to write
something worth reading. Something that made people want to keep turning
the page and that would make them gawk at the end. I wanted to write
one of the books that you can't stop thinking about.
get me wrong. I'm no literary artist, and I'm not writing the next Atlas
Shrugged. What I have crafted is a religious thriller that will(I hope)
bring your nightmares to life. And I think I've written an ending no
one will see coming.
And because I want other people to read
this, it was suggested that I start a blog to raise awareness and build
an audience. So, I am. I'm sure I'll start with my friends, but
hopefully they'll help spread the word, and eventually I'll catch the
eye of an agent or a publisher. And hey, if anyone reading this happens
to know one, feel free to send them here, too!
