On Twitter, I’ve been taking part in my first-ever fiction prompt during the month of January. I’m loving it so far. Of course, I didn’t even realize that I wasn’t sharing the responses here, so I must remedy this problem.
But first, the prompts.
Rather than starting at day one and just being several days behind, I’m going to do a week one wrap-up. And then start tomorrow with daily posts.
Day 1: Introduce yourself & WIP
I’ve always craved the escape books could offer me. That’s why I started writing adult urban fantasy romance.
I’m currently editing the 6th novel of my Earthen Witch series. It involves finding happiness and redemption, despite the darkness of the past.
Day 2: Goals for this year
My goals for this year:
– plot, draft, & edit new MS
– finish editing & publish 2 WIPs
– help friends with their book covers
– help friends with their editing
– read more indie authors
– write and share reviews
Day 3: First line in WIP
Everything around me was shrouded in darkness, but somehow, I recognized what was happening. It wasn’t the first time and I knew it wouldn’t be my last. —from Stronger Than Blood, coming in February.
Morbid fascination held me in its grip as I watched the melee in front of me. They were moving faster than my human eyes could follow, but I could see enough. —from Enduring The Flames, coming in August.
Day 4: Favorite writing quote
Everything you can imagine is real. —Pablo Picasso.
Day 5: One project at a time or multiple?
With my own work, I only do one project at a time. Since it’s an ongoing series, I don’t want to mess up timelines. If I’m helping others with their projects (like book covers or editing) I can do more than one at a time.
Day 6: Dangers/obstacles in WIP
Danger? Everywhere. The biggest being an antagonist trying to start a war over an old grudge, not caring who dies along the way.
That, and the redemption arc in Enduring The Flames.
Day 7: Feature Friday
The first Friday feature feature has to be L. V. Russell — @fey_girl63 on Twitter. I finished Darling, There Are Wolves In The Woods a few days ago and LOVED it, and I’m almost halfway through Hush, The Woods Are Darker Still. Stay tuned for a review.
There you have it. From here, I’ll share these little prompts daily.
Until next time,
