Well everyone I did it! I started my novella last Thursday, a short 40,000 word work based on two of my characters to the sequel of my manuscript The Crimson Hunt, and I wrote the last word on the page today! I laughed, I cried, but most of all--I finished!
I didn't know how easy this would be for me to do. I was used to writing 90,000 word count books with the handy Snowflake Method that I use and wasn't quite sure if I could trim, trim, trim enough to write a book at 40,000 words and it still make sense and be well written...well I did it!
I'm so excited and when I finally get these books out the door for "Crimson" I would like to send off the novella as a companion. And it is super funny, if I do say so myself :) It actually ended up being a Romantic Comedy and "Crimson" is more of an action/adventure love story, so I was surprised by the direction of where this one went, but it turned out well!
I wrote from 4 POV's and OMG writing as a 23-year-old male...I thought 20 something! females were crazy! Who says men aren't emotional??? Because they are! lol. Just wanted to let everyone know. I'm so excited :)
