Suppose I should keep a journal. I have a half-assed one kicking around in a Word document, but there's no accountability in that. I'll put it here as well, as sort of an exercise in exposure therapy. WIP is a YA Fantasy full of all the tropes I love but cringe to even think about discussing for some reason. Perhaps because my husband keeps referring to it as my Maradonia and asks at least once a day in ye olde English, which I am not using, how Velvet Verdigrand (or whichever other fantasy-esque mock name he has come up with that day) is fairing in the troll castle (there is no troll castle). There will be faeries and elves and dragons and magic and all that good crap that I adore. Current status: First draft, book 1 of 3, possibly more considering I keep on adding chapters to my initial framework. Ideal word count ~100k+ February 24, 2019. Word count = 45209 Just finished a chapter wherein we discussed the possible goings on in the Elven province. What the heck are they doing with fairy blood? Devious things. A war is coming. MC needs to win herself a dragon in the coming few chapters. Have laid the groundwork for upcoming romantic relationships. Need to start putting down more of those bricks so that I can smash them down later.
