Huzzah! BeFunky finally started working for me again!
And yes, this was supposed to be posted on Wednesday, not Saturday, especially since I’m planning a post to go up tomorrow. But WordPress did something funky and I had no idea how to write a post. Oopsies.
Anyhow, in this post, I’ll be telling you all about my three projects I have planned for 2018. You already know about Starless, and possibly, you might know about Autumn Rose. *has forgotten if I’ve shared about it before on this blog*
But…. you know nothing about Forgotten, and I thought I’d enlighten you.
and myself because let’s just forget the fact i know barely nothing about it cough cough.
Forgotten is…. a Sleeping Beauty retelling!
I think I got the idea for it because of school. My mom is from the Czech Republic, and I am fluent in Czech so that I can speak with my relatives. My mom has us listen to one song in Czech for school each month, and this month’s song was Šipková Ruženka, which means Sleeping Beauty. I’m not going to share the song, because you probably won’t understand it.
But it really got me thinking. What if Sleeping Beauty woke up totally alone… and forgotten by everyone? (Pretty sure you’ve guessed why this book is called Forgotten XD)
So… I was supposed to be outlining all my novels from here on out. Ermmm…. didn’t happen. I know next to nothing about this project, except for the following:
Erm. Basically, when Briar Rose, the princess, wakes up from a 100 year sleep, there is no one in the castle. No princes anywhere.
And so, Briar Rose, a tomboy, goes out into the woods, trying to figure out what in the world happened to her beloved parents. And she runs into a shepherd boy, whom I am currently calling Rowan.
From there, they track down Briar’s fairy godmother, and maybe…. if I feel nice…. find her parents alive. If I feel evil…….. *muhahaha*
And here… I couldn’t resist staring the novel already. Snippet for you:
The king and queen of Serembrond wanted nothing more than a child. For years, they had hoped and prayed, but it was all to no avail.
That is, until the beautiful queen Adelaide encountered a talking rose bush.
Queen Adelaide had seen unusual things before; Serembrond and the kingdoms surrounding it were chock full of unusual things.
But a talking rose bush? That was new. And really quite alarming.
Autumn Rose is a project I’ve been working on for a while, but I put it aside for some time. During 2018, I hope to rewrite it and get it ready for publication. I think I can do it in 12 months…. maybe?
Teralina is my main character in Autumn Rose. She is a 17 year old Elven princess, and she is captured by a dragon on her quest to get help from her elder sister when the castle where she lives is besieged.
I have a synopsis for it someplace…. but I can’t find it…. I should keep track of my writings…
And I won’t bore you with more about Starless… my goals for it this year is a perfectly polished manuscript, also ready for publication.
Okay, well… one more thing about Starless: A collage for my character Arendale.
In case you can’t see the text, it says:
“I may be what they call a Survivor…. but what is life when everything has been ripped from you? What do I have to live for now? – Arendale”
Sorry, couldn’t resist sharing… I’m proud of it. XD
Are you working on any projects in 2018? Tell me about them, please? *puppy dog eyes*
