Writing Installment #4

So, today’s my day off from my other assortment of jobs, which means goals on the writing front. Despite my sparkling new idea I had begun to work on, I got a response on the challenge I’d applied for from the publisher who brought out By the Sea, Poisoned Apple and the up and coming, Soul Solution. This is another one like Soul Solution, a Beyond Fairytales challenge. Since I love fairytales and I love challenges, I figured it was a perfect fit, and ho-damn, it definitely is.

I was lucky and got the Celtic fairy tale of Connla and the Fairy Maiden. About a page or so long, it was a simple story, as most fairy tales are, and yet the second I finished, my brain started bubbling forth with ideas, of hunters, and Philly, and the fae.

So, even though I started this last Wednesday, I’m already plowing through at 10,000 words. My goal for this one is a little loftier than the average novella–I’d like to get my story up to 50-60,000 range. Since I only have 6 months to write and edit, I think that’s stepping up my challenge game a bit.

Thankfully, I love challenges.


I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
