It’s All Coming Together

I’m so excited today. My book idea is finally coming together. I think I’ve finally found “The Book” to write. I’ve been researching since I got home yesterday and have found lots of info on my topic. My only issue about my book is that it may only appeal to a certain “type” of reader. It is based on a folktale in the Bayous of Louisiana, but the folk tale is known around the world and in every culture, so it would appeal to readers around the world, but only in one aspect of those who love the supernatural and mystery. It will also incorporate another story into it that is a childhood favorite – “The Three Little Pigs”. I know it seems a bit odd three pigs and a wolf for a novel, but I think I may be able to put a new spin on it. I’m not going to let that stop me though. I’m still going to write the book and try to get it published.

I always want and need to option of having the chance to use some of those ideas somewhere in my writing.

The Writer’s Survey

Writer Survey
I discovered this interesting little survey on Hannah’s Blog. I figured I’d give it a try.

1. What’s the last thing you wrote? What’s the first thing you wrote that you still have?
The last thing I wrote was a part of the setting on my new WIP. The first thing I ever wrote and still have is a short story that I hope to one day turn into a novel. (wishful thinking)

2. Poetry? (more…)
