Writing & Working

I'm sort of participating in the Blog Me Maybe Blogfest. I admit, I am not the best so far. lol. Graduation and moving and now Peru...and I also have two jobs. Things are...interesting. I am also happily rewriting my book! :D

Like I have said, I decided to write an outline this time and I really like it. I think I like it because I enjoy having a map, basically. I transferred all my written documents to a slideshow that I am adding to as I read Anatomy of Story.

I'm keeping my same characters, but I renamed Kiera. She is now Larkin. :) This picture is best, because in the second chapter, she is wearing a crimson gown.

Of course this is Barren. He's older here, actually. I'll have to find a younger Barren Reed. I decided to make him eighteen in my books.

 And I had to show you this. My friend, Brittiny (who draws all the art on my page) drew Leaf for me.  This is her concept sketch, and she wrote FAIL but I think it's wonderful! He just needs longer hair. lol.

My wonderful Aladdin is playing around with photoshop, too and will have a map ready for me at some point. lol. Probably when I finish this book in a few months, lol.

Okay, there's an update for you. It's not much, but I hope you enjoy the pictures, and tell me what you think of the name Larkin. Do you like it? Also, would anyone like to read a bit of the new first chapter I've been working on?

  1. I HEART Larkin! And, please, please, please can you write me into this book?! I can be an extra--Barren's personal assistant, perhaps?? Shoot, I'll even change his chamber pot. *swoons*

  3. I LOVE your story!!! From the bits and pieces you'd thrown my way so far. Though I like the name Kiera better. Lol...I don't know why, but Larkins remind me of Lando in the Star Wars.

  6. I like the name Keira better, Larkin is weird but interesting at the same time. I like what I have read of the old version, this whole new story is weird to get used to, even though I didn't get to finish the first story, I would love read both versions. -Jennifer Chezem
