I know Christmas is technically over, but that isn’t stopping me from letting my creative juices take over. And boy, have they taken over!
You might have noticed some new pages have been added, here and there. The reason is because I’ve got so many ideas and just keep making them happen. Amongst these ideas is a mini-series of novellas, that follow the sisters of Santa Clause. Yeah, who’d have thunk.
The idea for these novellas was actually my aunt’s. For Christmas, she put in my stocking a Santa’s hat, with a cheetah printed brum/puff. I wore it all day, even to the party later that evening, along with a pair of brown gloves, with similar print on the hems . . . borders? The part that covers my wrists. We were talking about my joy for writing all day, leading up to this one point where she looked at me and said, “You could be Santa’s gorgeous, partying younger sister.”
And then we had a moment. We literally both thought the same thing, and pointed at each other. “Story idea!“
I’ve since played around with the idea (I’m sure I mentioned it in my recent post, but if not I am now!) and I really like what I’ve got going with it. Only it’s not what I am going to actually work on at the moment.
BECAUSE I’m writing my modern re-telling of Little Women, and it’s 95% done! How? I DON’T KNOW! It’s just happened! I told myself I wouldn’t work on anything BRAND NEW until after I’d finished other stories. Of which, I have finished BLACK & BLUES. I still want to get ESCAPING REALITY finished, since it’s only the last parts of the epilogue. Just a few more paragraphs! 😀 Which I have just passed the 50k mark. So it a “longer” novella.
Also BRAND NEW that I am trying to NOT work on is THE WOLVES OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY DUET. Don’t know where the heck this idea came from, but I know I was consulting my creative mind-crew in my sleep. Because I saw it from start to finish. And I wrote down every single detail I could squeeze into four little pages of my WACKY IDEAS JOURNAL. It’s going to be awesome. Once I start writing it.
Let’s see. *talks to self* Anything else I wanted to talk about?
Aside of all my writing and my blogging, I’m trying to find some simple freelance work. I gotta. It’s the only way I’m gonna be able to pay (myself) for some of the things I want to do this year. (More on that another time.) I am looking into Fiverr and Freelancer. Freelancer has skills portfolio, and Fiverr has some deals I’m offering. Feel free to check it out, if you want.
Well, that’s all the news I have for now. Don’t forget to browse the new pages. See you on the flip-flop!
