anthimeria: Open book, says "sometimes you reach what's realest by making believe" (Books)

Greetings, well met, hello the internet!

(Hmm, that rhymes.)

I have been less present here because a) I am on twitter and it's distracting, and b) BECAUSE I STARTED WRITING THE SWAN BOOK AND IT IS AWESOME FUN.

Okay, that's a little bit of a lie.  I pulled teeth to get 4500 words into a first draft in third person before I gave in to the manuscript's insistence and rewrote the beginning in first.  It works much better, and a week later I'm 7k words into the new first person draft.  It is now awesome fun.

I also decided on a working title: Wingless.  It'll go with Heedless and Fearless for books 2 and 3 (it's a closed trilogy).  Haven't decided on a series name yet, so as a collective they'll still be called the swan books, but for now book 1 is Wingless.


(PS: Just got back from FOGcon this weekend and had a fabulous time!)

Hey, Christine here,
From what little I've heard about the Swan books, they sound fascinating and I'm so glad writing is going well for you. I can't wait to hear more and if you ever need someone to rant at, bounce ideas off of, or read a draft, just let me know. :)

By the way, is it safe to resume (non-serious, friendly) communication?
