I'm not so scared anymore.
creaturesbby said: hi, I really love your book Love & Misadventure and I can't wait for your new book also! I was wondering if you ever thought of writing a novel or something like that? :)
Thanks, I am so excited about Lullabies too. Can’t wait for September! :)
As for a novel, yes I am writing one. Lately I’ve found myself completely immersed in its little world, like a cocoon. I keep hearing conversations between my characters and some have even worked themselves into my dreams. (Michael and I have started discussing them like they are real people.)
It’s winter where I am, so I’ve been writing up a storm and honestly, I can say this is the most excited I have ever been from a creative standpoint.
Here is a short excerpt from my first draft:
Ana was the original sad girl. She held the unofficial title, long before her death. We all became sad girls after that.
At her funeral, everyone wore black because it was customary. Because it was the colour that best defined Ana.
We learned in art class that technically, black is not a colour, but rather, the absence of. Black was in fact, a shade—one that held its presence in every gradation of grey, only departing completely, with the transition into white. I always thought of white as a clean slate, an un-written page. A snow covered field or a wedding dress. White is starting over, an absolution from all your sins. That day, I was the furthest away from white that I could possibly be.

When life gives you lemons, cut it into two halves and apply honey on one half of it and rub it all over you face. It is good for your skin and helps removes blackheads too. A beauty tip for you cause I love you( did that rhyme?) ;)
Yes it rhymes and thank you for the beauty tip! I will definitely give it a try because as it turns out, there is a box on my street filled with lemons with a sign that says ‘free lemons.’ Lemons are the best! Also, I love you too!
