Happily Ever After
As Spring Break comes to a close, I’ll admit I feel a bit worn out. Which is safe to say, a bit ironic, considering that the purpose of Spring Break is well… to actually take a break from work or school.
But, if there’s one thing I’ve learned since becoming published it’s that there is no break from writing. Now, I knew this before, but it has never been so blatant as it has been this past week.
This week I’ve edited and rewritten parts of Playing Cupid, my new YA book. I thought I would have a bit of a break after I wrapped up a few loose ends in that story, but boy, was I wrong. Because no sooner had I finished typing The End, than the idea for it to be the first in a series popped into my head.
Before I knew what was happening I was outlining for the next few installments, Finding Luck, Pixie Perfect, Gnome Place Like Home, and Dragon Me Down (I just love mythical creatures).
Each book in the series tackles a various aspect of love. And, of course, each one has its own fairy tale ending. One thing I’m very much enjoying is writing problems for characters to overcome and then actually allowing them to overcome said problems.
Sigh. Happy feels. Gosh, I’m really a sucker for a good ending.
Though, to be quite honest, I’m a bit exhausted. It can get emotional with all the ups and downs and ups my characters face… especially the teen ones.
But, I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s totally worth it. Especially when they reach the end of their journey and there’s nothing else to write because they all lived happily ever after.
