Happy Sunday friends,
I’m finally on time with this posting!
It’s been a busy week here and I accomplished much of what I set out to do. There’s a lot more to look forward to this week and I can’t wait to pursue each goal 🙂
Here’s a small glimpse of what I’ve been up to…
My Writing Projects
My first goal this week was to complete edits on Heritage! And I did 🙂 She sits now at 84,847 words, which is decent for a YA fantasy, but I’m hoping to cut at least 5k down during my edit of the second draft next month.
My second goal was to start edits on the final draft of The Glass Slippers. So far it’s going well, but I’m about to hit the part I’m most concerned with! Here’s a small excerpt from the first scene:
EXT. MANOR. DAY
A luscious lawn surrounds a three-storey house, a decently sized estate, not extravagantly wealthy, nor terribly poor. Flowers coloured in a myriad of pastels blossom. Trees rich with foliage reach heavenwards.
SOFT PIANO MUSIC echoes from within.
LAUGHTER echoes — boisterous, innocent, free.

I also have exciting news to share! I’ve created my first monthly challenge! Fictional Flashback February 2017!
I’ll post a few more explanations about it later this week on my blog. Keep an eye out for it!
Feel free to join starting February 1st on Twitter & Instagram. I hope you will 🙂
That’s it for me. How was this last week for you friends? Anything exciting happen? Let me know and we can share our experiences!
May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,
