Now that the overall shock has worn off a little bit, it’s all starting to sink in. I’m getting published!!!!!!!! What I’ve worked for, for the past year and a half will finally show some fruit. What does that mean for me? Well, it means I have to get serious, and get to work on my romantic fantasy in progress, (you l ike how adult and responsible I sound right now, don’t you?)That’s right, it’s a romantic fantasy. Not a fantasy romance.
This story, although focusing on a hero and heroine and on their relationship with each other, also deals with a detailed world and the repercussions of actions and broken rules and so on and so forth. It isn’t just a romance. It goes much deeper than that. Hence, it has now been deemed a fantasy. Which means that I get more freedom to be a little out there. To really delve into this world, to create it from the ground up and focus on it. It can be as long as I want it to be, because heck, fantasies are known to be like 700 pages! (Trust me, mine won’t be 700 pages. I’ll be lucky if it hits 100 with the way my brain blanks out). But I mean, it’s nice to have a direction. Now, I just have to sit and figure out how I want this all to work. Where I’m going to go, what I’m going to do, etc, etc.
But it will all have to wait until the final week of March. Until then, I only have enough energy to focus on one thing at a time. Right now, it’s the musical that’s taking up all my time and attention. Singing, dancing, acting. Sheesh. Who knew it was so incredibly exhausting? Starting Saturday we go into full day rehearsals. Which means from 10am-5pm I’ll be working. Then that night, I’m going to rehearse singing with my friend’s dad’s band, who want me to sing with them at a few gigs. So, I have a few irons in the fire. But don’t worry, I’ll be immsersed in words before we know it. And hopefully, I can get this book, which has lingered for 2 long years, out of my head and on paper, for good.
