    Inspired by something I wrote under the pen name, Gillian Merrion. Enjoy!

  • I've another #snippet for you, lovelies. This time, it comes from Chosen.

    Just wrote this, too, so it hasn't been edited. I may end up changing a few things, but you get to #read this in its raw form.

    Enjoy!

  • I'll be diving into my cave in a little bit.

    Swung by Zathom for a little #writing inspiration. Thought of this while there, and thought I'd share it with all of you.

    Who is this person? Why is she hiding? Who do the footsteps belong to?

    Who is this person? Why is she hiding? Who do the footsteps belong to?

    This definitely has the potential for becoming an extended story.

    Enjoy!

    I've something a little different for you all this morning. I don't have a tagline or a summary for this new #story yet, for which I apologize.

    I've been winging it, you see. Chosen was born via the website, Zathom. I've been utilizing the #writingprompts—or #fathoms, if you will—the site provides to #write diverse pieces of #stories, #poetry, and #microfiction.

    They've recently incorporated being able to write longer pieces—220 words per piece with the option of continuing what you've been writing.

    In doing so, I've been able to write the first entire #chapter for Chosen. It clocked in at a total of 1989 #words. (1983 written via the site, plus 6 additional upon adding the chapter header and subheader in the document I've saved the story to.)

    Anywho, without further ado, here's a #snippet from Chosen. I hope you all enjoy it.

    There's more to come!

    Taking a little break from what I've been reading through today. Have been immersed in this project, so I apologize for not posting an #excerpt these last few days.

    This book may end up being retitled. For the moment, though, it's name remains what you currently see listed.

    Without further ado, here's today #snippet.

    We stood in the middle of the cave, eyeing the teardrop-shaped cocoons. The light coming in from the natural skylight in the ceiling encompassed them. Rainbow streaks illuminated the entire area. The unexpected bloom of luminescence astounded me.

    “What do you think they are?” Kyla asked, pulling her cell phone out of her pocket.

    Good morning, lovelies.

    How have you all been? What have you been up to?

    Me, I'm #writing this morning. Something new. Something fresh. Something totally not science fiction.

    Good morning, lovelies.

    How have you all been? What have you been up to?

    Me, I'm #writing this morning. Something new. Something fresh. Something totally not science fiction.

    It's been a while since I've written anything romantic. Last night, though, my Muse—and I capitalize this word because it's how I refer to my muse. Like it's a name instead of a word, you know?—whispered sweet-nothings in my ear.

    I started writing earlier and in less than 30 minutes I had a few paragraphs written down. A total of 442 #words, to be exact.

    The #story, though #fiction, has elements of real life in it. These are elements I've used as inspiration, however. What these elements are, though, I shan't say. That's the beauty of writing. You can draw inspiration from just about anything and anyone.

    I've been debating on whether I want to do a serial sharing thing via #Wattpad. I've seen quite a few authors do this, where they release a chapter a week up until the story is completed. Readers get to read the story in its raw state with the chance to offer their opinions/feedback, allowing the authors to keep things as they are, or improve upon what needs improving.

    So my question to you all this morning is this—have any of you participated in serial novelizations like the above? If so, would you even want to read the story as it is shared?

    Let's discuss!

    Most of all, lovelies, I just want to say thank you. For sticking around and bearing with me while it's been super quiet on here. I've been mulling a lot over these past three years. I think it's time I pick up the reins again.

    So, thank you. From the deepest reaches of my heart. Thank you.
