Well, this is my first post this year. I’m a bit lazy, I know. But that doesn’t mean I was just sitting around doing nothing. As a matter of fact, I was quite busy writing. I try to write every single day, in between my household chores, my girls, and my husband.
Speaking of my husband, he asked me once why did I keep this blog anyway since I had no followers and no readers. My answer is that this is my place, my one, my precious :). The one where I share my thoughts and my dreams even though I’m the only one whos’s visiting so far (and two other persons, actually). It is actually the place where I keep evidence of my writing. And it’s also the place where I can be myself. So yes, this blog is very important to me and I’m not going to give up on it.
Now back to the topic. It’s true, I don’t have too much to say. My self-published story, The Hidden Princess, is not as popular as I was expecting (I can see that in my sales boards). The second story in Whispered Tales series, called Beyond, which was due last Halloween is, obviously, still not published. I don’t have a cover for it and it is not formatted yet, so there’s a lot of work to do on that one, too.
Meanwhile, my story on Wattpad, The Moonlight Boy, has reached 2,55 k. It’s not as expected, either. But the reason I love Wattpad the most is that it urges me to keep writing. I post every week and sometimes it is a struggle to meet the deadline of posting. And I also met some wonderful people there, too. Some of them are even editing my story and pointing out the flaws and inconsistencies. For free!!! Chapter by chapter! Which is great because proofreaders are so hard to find. And even if they do accept to proofread your story, sometimes it takes months to get to yours among hundreds others.
Currently, I am sketching the chapters of book two in the Ferry’s Tale series, called The Lost Son. The action takes place seven years from the period of the first book and it tells the story of the complicated life of a complicated being at a complicated age: a fourteen-years-old boy fairy. I’m really excited about this series and I can’t describe the joy I’m feeling when I’m writing this story.
But my TO DO list is not ending here. I have to translate the third story in the Whispered Tales series (which is due June the 24th), called Forest of the Wind, and revise my novel, which doesn’t have a name yet and on which I’ve been writing for the past five years. It’s about time travel, one of my favorite theme in the whole world!!!
And all this time, I haven’t had writer’s block not even once. Simply because I don’t have time for it. So when I do get the chance to write (usually at night, when my girls sleep), I write 🙂
