Hello Fiction Lovers!
I realized that I haven’t really said much about what I’m currently working on with my writing. Right now, I’m working on editing one manuscript and writing the first draft of another–both have progressed to the point they are at because of the story sections I talked about in an earlier post. I used to be horrible at finishing the stories I was writing (before I switched to a new idea), but doing the story sections has helped me keep focused on the manuscript I’m sending out to friends and family. Because I was so bad at finishing stories, however, I don’t have much experience writing endings or editing so it’s taking a lot of work to get that first manuscript to where I want it to be. The editing is going slowly, but I rather have it take a long time and be good than rush through it and not have it improve much.
The manuscript that is being edited is called The One Who Speaks and is about a young woman, Irene, who loses her voice under mystical circumstances. After the incident she gains a power she didn’t have before and her body starts moving without her direction. The story continues as she tries to find out what exactly what happened and how she can get her voice back. Along the way she is joined by the son of a spirit, Vix, and her cousin, Sao.
The manuscript I am currently writing is called A Cursed Blessing. The story is told through the eyes of the main character, Ismelle, a family of nobles keeping a secret, and young woman trying to follow her goddess-driven dreams. As the story continues you learn more about each of the characters from their perspective as they try to figure out why monsters are appearing, worry about the danger Ismelle’s presence in the manor poses, and try to keep their secrets.
Do either of these stories sound interesting to you? Please let me know what you think and feel free to share what you are currently working on writing-wise. Thank you for reading and let me know if you have any questions.
