It Continues...

I have been working some more and wrote a very funny scene last night, it was fun to write and my fingers were working overtime on the keyboard, some scenes are easier to write than others and last night was one of those scenes that gets written very quickly.

Still reading...

In between writing I'm still reading plenty, the most recent being Maggie Stiefvater's Linger, which is the second book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. The first book Shiver was a tear jerker and a brilliant story so I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of Linger and it didn't disappoint! I do recommend because Linger also bought me to tears!

Being thorough!

Me and Sophie wrote a scene on Friday night (an exciting scene I might add) set in Jarry'ds bedroom, easy! Anyway, we wrote the scene and had a lovely long debate on how the bedroom furniture would be set out, diagrams and all! We like to be thorough!

A good author advised 'to be a good author read lots of books' so i've taken that advice and have been getting through books this week like nobodies business! 'K, so i've read 3 this week but still... not bad! This weeks have been Firespell by Chloe Neill, The Splendour Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore and Linger by Maggie Stiefvater I would recommend them all! Peace out xx

Prologue written!

Okay so I've decided to write the Prologue finally and I'm 4 chapters into the book.
When starting our book me & Soph knew the basics of what was going to happen but sometimes the characters backgrounds or details unravel as we're writing, so halfway through chapter 4 a certain character's story unravelled for me and it happened to become the Prologue.
I'm pleased with it (Sophie amended any mistakes for me) and I hope the readers will like it too!
