When I woke up this morning, I didn't expect to write ten thousand words. My plans for the day had initially included reading Brandon Sanderson's The Way of Kings, or maybe reading the second book in the Wheel of Time series. Yes, I know I'm way behind the rest of the world, or at least the world of fantasy readers.
Now, I don't know what sparked my inspiration today. If I did, I would make sure to repeat it. I haven't had a writing day this productive in a long time. It feels good.
My current project is a fantasy, which may or may not be young adult. The main characters start out the series as teenagers, but they are going to age significantly over the course of the story. This is actually a rewrite of a four book series I originally started writing when I was a sophomore in high school. Now, as a college graduate, (I don't know when that happened) I'm returning to it. My writing is so much better now. I can thank lots of reading, writing, and surfing Absolute Write for that.
Well, I don't know what else to say. My life isn't terribly interesting. Taking a year off before graduate school has been a good choice, though. It really gives me the time to catch up on reading and get some writing done. You never know. Maybe by the time I return to school, I'll have an agent and a publishing deal. One can hope. Right?
