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).

time to editTo 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? 😊

xoxo Melody

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.
