So I had a little brain spurt the other day. I was thinking about the first young adult novel I ever attempted to write. About how excited I was that it was going to be the 'next big thing'. Then I finished it, put it out there and realized I had A LOT of work to do!!
Fast forward, 7...yes, seven!! years. I've been thinking about this story a lot and, well, as much as I had given up on it, I don't think it's right to let it go. I decided to shake it up a bit. I love the setting, love the characters and the plot, but it's the theme (werewolves) that has me hoping for change. So now, I'm creature searching. I need to find something different, something that will allow my MC to be the same person, just a different species ;) We'll see what I come up with.
Now speaking of old WIPS the Queen of Awesome, Jennifer Fischetto tagged me over on her blog. She's introduced me to something called the Lucky 7 Meme. I'm supposed to do something really embarrassing. Share a sample of my unedited writing. I chose my very first WIP. It's an adult WIP that nobody has ever seen before. Nobody. That's probably why it looks like it does.
Here goes :)
The Lucky 7 Meme:
- Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP
- Go to line 7
- Copy down the next 7 lines--sentences or paragraphs--and post them as they're written. No cheating.
- Tag 7 authors
- Let them know
Okay, my friends, here it is.
Alright, false start. Here it is, for real this time :)
After returning the items to the refrigerator, she washed her hands, grabbed a banana from the top of the fridge and sat down to enjoy her meal.
Her mind wondered back to Ian.
Where is he now? She wondered.
And my tags :)

Looking forward to see some your raw writing :)
