After sitting at my computer for nearly three weeks non-stop (and staying up way, way, way late into the night and early morning on work days nonetheless), I am close to finishing the first cut of edits.
I will be sending the novel out to a few people to read… namely those who love reading and/or those who read on their daily commutes. I hope they will give me their honest feedback and we will see where we go from there.
Exciting times are coming! Next up – Lady Second!
So I want to shed a little more light on the long-term project that I’m working on. I originally wrote a story called “One Week” before taking that story in another direction. I’ve decided to rename this story, 5 Weddings. And as you have probably guessed – the story is about five different weddings.
The prologue starts with a man watching a woman walk down the aisle. She is his ex, but must have stayed close enough that he warranted an invite to her wedding day. He learns one of the most valuable lessons from watching his ex marry another man.
The story will then lead to another wedding during the introduction, presumably the fifth. The main character is fumbling around trying to find his seat. He’s a nervous wreck and begins to reflect on how he arrived at this point.
So there are two of the five weddings already revealed. The story then follows three more weddings that build up to the fifth wedding mentioned in the introduction.
It will be a love story (going back to my roots here).
After I lay down some more of the foundation I have a couple other projects that I want to work on.
A friend of mine, Pritpaul, is a part-time writer and is looking for a new project to tackle. Together we are going to work on a post-apocalyptic-esque story. A total 180 of what I’ve been doing here, but I hope you will all enjoy it.
On the picture book front? Well I’ll be putting together book #3 during the “off” times when I’m not focused on my novel or other projects.
Happy 2014 everyone! I think this will be an exciting year.
