So, as I feel I have only been sharing things that have to do with writing or my books lately, I am going to change the subject. (I heard that sigh of relief)
So, what's exciting right now? Well, to begin with, my elder sister is getting married! Just over a week to go and she will be a wonderful wife on top of being an amazing sister.
I am super excited. :)
My little sister and I will be standing up at her wedding, so that's fun. I've never been a bridesmaid before, so there's also a tiny bit of nervousness. Mostly I'm just happy for my sister. :)
We've been busy, making mints, buying jewelry, having dress fittings...all that jazz. I'm super excited!
So that's what new, folks. Stay tuned...there will likely be pictures to follow in a few weeks. :)

I am currently being inspired by dresses. I also happen to be an outrageously horrible artist, so I won't bother showing you some of my drawings that were inspired by dresses. But I will show you the dresses themselves.
My mind has been an explosion of ideas lately, and I can't seem to slow down the fireworks. It's exhausting, really, having your mind running all all cylinders constantly.

Well, not really. But the story I am writing is pretty intense.
Not once in my life did I ever think "let's write a dystopian society book"...'cause, that's fun. And then, once the crazy idea was planted I was thinking, "uh...everyone is writing this same story these days, why am I doing this again?"
Funny thing about stories though, once they find their way into your imagination they never let go. Ever. So, my futuristic dystopian society is coming to life....and destroying the world in the process...
Cassy Wilmark and a band bedraggled teenagers are taking on the world...and it's incredibly dramatic. I've never written anything with so much drama and nail-biting worthy sequences. It's rather scary, actually. It is as though all of my worst nightmares have come together and created a story.
Besides being terrifying to me....this story is so much fun! I love it, just as I love all of my stories. :)
Cassy is nothing like my other heroine's....at all. Not the gentle, sweet, all goodness wrapped into a charming lady type at all. She's frank and blunt, sometimes downright rude, fiercely loyal and brave, cares nothing for hygiene (YET. I will change her mind...I hope), and totally self-reliant. Cassy is just different. And I love her.
"What is it about you, Cassy Wilmark, that they find threatening?"
I flinch for the blow I know is coming. Sure enough, I find myself flying across the room and hitting the wall painfully.
Curiosity is definitely going to kill a few cats in this story. Don't ask questions, my lovely readers, because it could very well kill you.
The problem for Cassy, is that she is really, really curious.

I’m awake, though my eyes refuse to open or my limbs to move. I struggle to breathe. I don’t know where I am, or who I am. All I know is that I am in pain.
Another new work in progress, although not nearly as new as the Daisy Danielle Davis story. I started this book last Thanksgiving. It's a fun story to write, but I am so wrapped up in Sherwood most days that I haven't had the time to get very far. So, consequently, I have absolutely no idea what is going on in this story or what it's all about.
I suppose we shall have to discover these things together. :)
