#BAWritingLife Day 3 - My WIP is the third draft of #EmberDragonDaughter. It’s a YA high fantasy following a kidnapped princess who discovers she is the long lost heir of the dragon throne. Can she accept she is part of the family she has always been raised to fear? Can she stop the plague of madness that has been sweeping her kingdom? You’ll have to wait to find out! 🤪 I started the first draft March 2017 and have logged over 200 hours on this book. So excited with the changes I’ve put into the doc today. It’s my book baby and I love seeing it grow! What are you working on?

This time last year I was doing the first version of @emberdragondaughter’s outline. ITS CHANGED A LOT. 😂 I had felt so prepared when really I had a year of learning and growing to do. While sometimes I feel down on myself for not writing enough (like today), I still celebrate how much my work has improved since this photo was taken. I’m grateful to have the resources and support to spend up to ten hours a week writing (without people yelling at me for being annoying) and I’m proud of myself for taking it on. I’m a creator of worlds! That is my domain. I am an author.

I am ready. Except not at all. That’s part of the beauty. You never know where a story will take you. I had outlined EDD more than I outlined any other project and here I am at draft three with a completely different story than I initially envisioned. I love it. I can’t wait to see what this round will teach me.
🔹
I have some major improvements planned.
🔹
New updates coming to @EmberDragonDaughter soon. Stay tuned! #EmberDragonDaughter

The thing that is different about draft three of @EmberDragonDaughter is that it is a LOT slower paced. Much more planning, reading, deleting words, and then rewriting (hopefully) better ones. What a challenge! I can’t wait to see how these changes will improve my story.

Daily efforts create lasting change.

New updates coming to @EmberDragonDaughter soon. Stay tuned! #EmberDragonDaughter

#Throwback to our honeymoon in 2014. It’s been too long since we’ve been on a vacation @chrcharcor - let’s plan one for Christmas! We need a break.
✨✨✨✨
Here is our itinerary:
1. Park Hopper pass at @universalorlando to see The Wizarding World of #HarryPotter
2. LOTS of Butterbeer. We’ll get one of each kind. For sure.
3. Jack eats a chocolate frog, it’s epic.
4. We have dessert for dinner at that new restaurant with the crazy milkshakes.
5. Next, Animal Kingdom @waltdisneyworld to see Pandora. Duh.
6. The rest is negotiable. Let’s talk.

Or you can read five books at once, browse Pinterest, listen to podcasts, journal, talk to writerly friends, then write your own book.

Finding my happy, every day.
#ShareYourLineFeb challenge - Share a line of your book every day. Here I have two snippets. The first photo is from Draft 3, the second photo is from my initial brainstorming in January 2017.
🔹
Follow @EmberDragonDaughter! More updates coming soon.
🔹
Ember has changed so much from my initial writings. Her name was Amber! There were no fated pairs, no other kingdoms, basically everything except being related to dragons was different. Stories develop with you! I do plan on incorporating some of these lines back in, as they are certainly creepy.

It took two hours to move draft two over to individual chapter documents in Google Drive, but I know this will make for easier note taking and draft three changes for @emberdragondaughter.
🌗
After tough deliberation, I’m leaving Novlr. It was such a great platform for writing, but the formatting of my exported projects was impossible to work with, and that became painful when working with my critique partners. I’ll still check in with the platform every once in awhile, as it has SO MUCH potential, but the changes were not in time for this particular book. I’m sad!
🌗
What do you use to write? I’m on a Chromebook, so that makes most platforms unstable for me.

🐲
The first line of #EmberDragonDaughter’s initial two drafts, but will likely not be the first line for draft three. It’s definitely a line that will stay in the book as I rework it since it is one of my favorites.
🐲
What is the first line of your WIP?

I’m currently reading #BetterThanBefore by @gretchenrubin and I 100% believe I am an Upholder that slightly leans to Obliger. I set pretty big goals for myself and work hard daily to make them happen, but whenever I’m feeling down on a goal and having trouble - I think about my son. Would he want me to be healthy? Yes. Would he feel like he could pursue his dreams if he saw me reaching for mine? Yes. He is my guiding light. #familygoals #momlife
🌗
Today’s #PlotterLifeChallenge is my working title, well @emberdragondaughter’s title is, of course, #EmberDragonDaughter. I am thinking of adding a subtitle, however, so that it’s easier to title the sequels.
🌗
I’ll be at @authorbrittanywang’s livestream at 10 AM EST to talk about the challenges this week, see you there! #amwriting #amwritingfantasy
It was a TOUGH morning. And I am in no way prepared for #PlotterLifeChallenge Day 24 (the book jacket), so here is Day 23 - my three sentence elevator pitch for @emberdragondaughter, let me know what you think: Ember was told she had to hide her differences from everyone around her to stay alive. But when her deformity is uncovered, she finds that it is actually proof that she is the sole heir to the dragon kingdom she has been raised to fear. Can Ember go against her true family to become the princess Ashkadance needs? 🐲🦁🦄 #EmberDragonDaughter
