Last Wednesday, I posted a note about the story I’ve been working on since February. It’s my first novel and I’m really excited about writing it. The fictional characters, their life and the mayhem they go through all keep me wanting to write more and more everyday…to share their dramatic tale of survival (hint).
To start, I’ve been writing short stories, poems and my own lyrics (r&b & hip hop) ever since I was in junior high school, although, I have nothing published as of yet. But, I often wrote these works for myself and those around me (unbeknownst to them) and short essays for school projects -way back when. Now, I have a ton of unfinished manuscripts and crumbled (but neatly flattened out) poems just sitting around collecting dust in the bottom of my dresser drawer lol. So, this will be my first officially “completed” story ever that I hope to find an agent and publisher for; prayer hands up!
Anyway, I just wanted to share a really quick summary of my novel idea with you, just to give a small glimpse into what I’ve been writing about.
To sum it up in two sentences: My story is about a young woman with a fear of flying forced into her first flight across sea to escape an abusive ex while inadvertently falling into the arms of a mysterious stranger. She soon finds her trip has been diverted through a path of hell with no way out.
Hehe 🙂 I know… I wish I could tell you all more but then I wouldn’t have a book to write, Right? 🤔Lol
Thank you for reading!
Please stop by, this Sunday, when I share one of my past poems or stories!
btw can you say ‘she had a fear of flying forced into her first flight across sea’ 3x fast? 😊
i’ve been working on a novel idea since february
i’ve been working on my first novel idea since february. i wrote the first draft down quickly and soon found out that i left out a lot of details and back story of key characters. i’ve edited & rewritten it twice. now in order to make the story “make more sense” (because i started writing without developing my plot first), i am starting my story over with a different scenario but the same premise.
next week i’ll share my novel idea with you.
solemn is the night and day, i pray that i won’t grow weak. you offered me a subtle kiss, when in my light i did not……
solemn is the night and day, i pray that i won’t grow weak
you offered me a subtle kiss, when in my light i did not deserve it
i grieve no more, now that you are here, but my fear still stands by
at every turn it pushes me into a dark corridor, where it shamelessly hides
lurking in the blackness, in the thickness of the air
i mutter out one last cry before it takes me deeper, but there’s no one there
to hear my breathes of endurance or my pains of laughter
no one sees when i am doing well, they only witness my disaster
where is god? i thought he sees all, why would he want me to suffer
am i acting unto him, like i do in the eyes of my significant other
shame on me, i must be dreaming, this is no life for royalty
oh god, please walk with me again and do what you must with our rings

this is my second post, i apologize for not introducing myself in the first one. but here goes a short & sweet intro…….
i’m mrs. melodrama mama aka melody 🙂 i created this blog to showcase my writing skills in hopes to share my stories and poems with others who may find them a tad bit interesting, entertaining and insightful to read. maybe even catch the eye of a few beta readers, literary agents and book publishers for my upcoming novels. that would be so amazing. for now though, i just want the practice of writing everyday, journaling my thoughts, editing old stories and making new ones come to life on my blog. i’m also going back to college for creative writing in the fall after several years of being a full-time professional self-taught artist.
i wrote an impromptu poem on my about page for fun, if you’d like to check it out click the about link at the top.
thank you for reading! follow my blog to get notifications on the new drama that’s about to unfold next week.
peace love & melodrama 👑💋📝🎨💃
