WIP Wednesday


The purpose of WIP (Work-In-Progress) Wednesdays is so I can set personal writing goals. It also serves as a way to let you all know what I’m working on. I hope you’ll join me and link back to your own or share in the comments!

To play, just fill in the following:

1. What are you currently writing?

2. Inspirations:

3. Plan for the upcoming week:

1. What are you currently writing?

I finished it! Part One of the Reborn sequel, that is. Teehee. ;-) Part One sits at about 37K, and I’m excited to keep going–I’m on sort of a roll right now (my muse has crappy timing). The sequel will have plenty of twists and turns, juicy college drama and epic romance (or maybe lust is a better word for it…). Some people have asked me about a release date–and I still don’t want to commit to an exact date yet–but it will (hopefully) be in late fall 2014. But I’m excited you’re excited. :-) I’ll choose an excerpt to post on here sometime soon.

2. Inspirations:

I really love describing clothes in my stories, especially fancy clothes, and I’m gearing up to write a dance scene. I want my main character Siobhan, who’s normally a pink-loving blonde, to wear a sophisticated, black cocktail dress, so I’ve been looking at dresses on Google Images. A change in her taste in fashion throughout the book is going to mirror her transformation in the book as she gives in more and more to her dark side. (I know, I’m so deep.) I was inspired by this scene in Legend (I also posted this video to the Facebook page last weekend) in which Princess Lily is dancing with this black dress, transforming from a fresh-faced innocent to a gothic princess in three minutes. By the way, 80s fantasy movies are the BEST.

3. Plan for the upcoming week:

Well, this might take me longer than a week, but at some point I really need to get Reborn up on Smashwords so it reaches more distributors. I’ll call it one of my April goals. That, and just to keep on writing…

Here are some possible dresses for Siobhan:

  1. I love this movie too, I just couldn’t remember what it was called ;) And I like the second dress. I’d like the first best, but I don’t like the way it’s cut in front. Give me full princess skirt. And congrats on finishing part 1!

  2. Just to reiterate what I said on your ‘About’ page, really looking forward to reading/reviewing the sequel to Reborn. Sorry I haven’t stopped by recently but have been busy with book reviews and mostly non-blog writing, and some more stories for my anthology. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at some of my stories too, much appreciated!

    ps, Have tweeted this post with a recommendation for Reborn
    ps, let me know when Reborn is up on ‘smashwords’ and I’ll add my review there too

    • No problem! :-) I haven’t been around to visiting my writer friends’ blogs either lately, so I am trying to be better again about stopping by! I’ve been working on the sequel but also have had a lot of school stuff going on so I haven’t been on WordPress much lately except to write the occasional update. I enjoy reading your short stories and am looking forward to reading your anthology.

      Thanks for the support, and I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop. :-) Although its’ definitely coming along it’s definitely not ready for publication, haha! I’m hoping to have it ready by the fall. We’ll see…..I’ll let you know about Smashwords, it’s definitely my goal to get Reborn up there soon.

  3. Another reason it’ll be good to have the sequel is because I’ve put a pic/link to your your book in the sidebar of my blog under ‘My book recommendations’ heading, and it would be nice to have the sequel nestling just underneath it.

    Cheers,
    Paul…
