Happy Thursday book readers and writers!
This past month I participated in an Instagram writing challenge that a few of my insta-writers were putting together. The premise of this challenge was to write a dark love story, without the butterfly kisses, flowers, chocolates, and endless snuggling.
For me, writing dark tales is no challenge at all.
Even so, this was a far step from my WIP, which has its moments but is a far step away from what this challenge was asking for. Each day a prompt was given to incorporate into your story. It ran for 14 days and the challenge was to write 1,000 words a day.
I successfully completed the challenge and by George it was fun!
If you have been following my IG feed, I was posting excerpts from my tale every day to give a sneak peek as to what was happening. Now it is successfully up on Wattpad and I could not be happier with it. It still needs some editing, but it really gave my writing inspiration a boost.
I was kind of in a slump with my Dragon series, but writing something completely new and off the cusp was EXACTLY what I needed to get myself back into the swing of things.
Also, I would LOVE for you all to check out my dark tale on Wattpad. You can catch the first chapter below:
