A Writer's Journey

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.

I'm a Writer...

A few weeks ago, the genius of Imran Siddiq decided to pull together a collaborative video to showcase a few of the amazing published and unpublished up and coming writers that he's come across from all walks of the social network circuit.

I'm not entirely sure what the criteria was in being included, but I had the absolute pleasure and great humbling experience to be included with this great bunch. It sort of a fun way to show the different types of writers and their respective genres and also gives you a little peek into what the writers think of themselves.

So, now... without further ado...

I'm a Writer - video compiled and edited by Imran Siddiq

And now for our regularly irregularly scheduled pretty...

Lucky Seven Meme!

My very good friend and fab critique partner, Lori M. Lee, recently tagged me in a writer's meme. I thought it would be a great way for me to dust off the old blog and perhaps jumpstart me into blogging again. *cue party hats and music* In lieu of the usual music stuff I put up for my irregular regular Music Mondays, I thought I'd jump in on the meme fun and take a stab at this instead! xD

The Lucky 7 Meme Rules

• Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP
• Go to line 7
• Copy down the next 7 lines--sentences or paragraphs--and post them as they're written. No cheating.
• Tag 7 authors
• Let them know

And here we go ^^ ::

An awkward silence followed and an image of her expression at the Prescotts’ party popped into my head. She fiddled with the chain of the small vial and turned back to her book. I was uncertain if bringing up the scene from the balcony was a good idea, but the thought gnawed at me. She caught my eye and shifted uncomfortably.

“So, did you move here with your parents?” I asked, pretending to browse through the open book in my hand.

“Parents?” She looked confused for a moment. “Oh, no parents. I actually live with my aunt."

This was from the most recently revised version of this WIP, which still needs quite a bit of work. I'm hoping to get cracking on the new revisions once I finish the first draft of the current WIP I've recently started.

Now for the tagging!
