I had to reorganize my storyboard because of my freaking cats (PSA, cats love anything made out of cardboard and don't give a cap if it's important or not!) But it's done, and it took one large poster board and then half of the smaller one. I'm very proud of how it turned out, and I've already gotten some chapters written.

I hope it's not too long. I'm the kind of person who is going to jump to whichever scene/chapter she wants to write the most. Anyone else like this? How does your outlining process work? Do you use storyboards? I'd love to hear your answers!
Also please note my ARC of Sadie by Courtney Summers! Gonna start reading it soon!

👺The face of a young man who is currently suffering on the inside, but things are starting to get better, thank the Light Bringer!

👺Tomorrow is Exam 3 of Precalculus and I can only hope that I do better than the last exam (I did fucking awful on that shit, way too much to remember😅). Let the anguish continue.

🖎As for writing, I'm doing interludes for Thrashing Claws because, why not? The Stormlight Archive has interludes, but they don't connect to the main plot of the series. So what I decided to do is have interludes in Golumek's Legacy, but this time, they'll have connections to the main plot of the series. More like a story within a story, sort to say. .

Still working on this draft, and others, and in fact, part of the reason I'm putting them out there is to remind myself to keep doing them. A lot of surreal imagery here. I knew I wanted to encapsulate the intensity, the "don't give a fuck" moments that we all have, and so I created all this stuff. Try to launch a missile at the sun and see where that gets you. Or pour gasoline on a guillotine, but it doesn't sound like a good idea for anybody. But it's how I feel. Every day and again, you'll really want to tell the whole world to go to bed.

This week I finished the first draft of Book 1: Destiny Taken. I'm reading a few books to help me with the editing. The first draft needs a lot of help but, it has good bones.
For motivation, I updated the working bookcover for that book and the next two in the series. These covers are just mockups. Really they are my version of a vision board. I look at them and I'm reminded the story is there I need to get it on the page. When I get closer to publication I'm going to pay for awesome covers. But, for now these will do.

I am both excited and slightly dreading the editing process. But, there were times I didn't think I'd get a first draft of any novel done; now look at me.

So while I'm reading up on story arcs and editing I'll finish the outline for book two. Last NaNoWriMo, I started writing Destiny Earned but without a full outline I got stuck early on. I think this will give me a good break from book one but, still keep me immersed in the world.

HOLY COW!! IT JUST HIT ME! I FINISHED BOOK 1!! I'VE WRITTEN THE FIRST DRAFT OF A NOVEL! WAAAA 😮

(Not my desk😂) A little update on my WIP, I finished going through chapter one, I was basically deciding which plot points to change from draft one and which ones to keep. Tomorrow I’ll go over it again and focus more and wording and stuff like that, making it prettier. Hopefully then I can move on to the next chapter🤞🏽 how are your projects going?

You were WHITE
too pure
to be true
You hid
rainbows
In you

And I was BLACK
too dull
and dark
hiding
thousand
mysteries
In me

We never dared to cross each other paths
So we kept our distance
But sometimes I swear we were

“Loves, because I’m open & authentic with you all— I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t address the lesson I’ve learned these past few months. To make a long story short (which will later be revealed in a blog post— this week), I was dating a man that gave the illusion that he was a “good one” he respected me, showcased effort, consistency and so forth. How he came into my life so strongly & full of vibrancy that exuded a fresh of breath air— that I wasn’t accustomed to because I’ve been closed off from dating/relationships. He & I dated, I meet his family, & everything seemed great... until it didn’t. The calls/texts & efforts decreased drastically— & then the big, “it’s not you— it’s me... I’m the one screwed up,” & Loves, that was a form of pure rejection. Rejection that I wasn’t ready for & it stings to be honest—in ways that I didn’t ever imagine because he seemed to be such a great man but when something’s not meant for you, God will remove them out of your life— with no warning but immense meaning & I’ll be lying to all if I said that it doesn’t hurt, & that I’m not wondering what happened, that was it me? Did I do something? Am I not beautiful enough? Is it because of my choices with sex? What did I do? For the past month in a half, I’ve been in a whirlwind— not understanding, not grasping & trying to make sense of something that didn’t make sense truly but in retrospect it did. & after evaluating the final chapter of this —I’ve learned a valuable lesson in opening up & letting myself date & in giving potential partners a chance. Now does this abrupt form of rejection sting? Yes. Am I slightly wounded? Yes. Am I strong though? Yes. Am I acknowledging my feelings as I move through this phase in my life? Yes. Do I regret anything? No. I’m learning to live life with no regrets, allow myself to grieve, & move through rejection/break up. Did I make some mistakes? Yes, but have I learned from them & is applying them? Yes. & I have to thank the tribe of women I have in my family that subtlety given me the strength I needed just by observing how they move through life after heartaches. And Loves, I just wanted to remind you all that WE will get through this—>

Reno project this week. It’s kinda getting in the way of #campnanowrimo #amwriting #progress. My mind wants to write but the ol’ body’s pooped. More of the same tomorrow too so no burning the midnight oil.

Sometimes success is sitting and writing 3000 words in one go, and sometimes success is forcing yourself to sit down and write for 30 minutes, even though you feel stuck and you're terrible and riddled with anxiety and self-doubt.

Why yes, I have started a WordPress profile...3 years ago apparently 😂

I never published anything though, so when I tried using my email address, it said it was already taken. I found an unpublished introduction, so I went ahead and updated all my details, added a pic, and so on.

This is my first post:
"Intro - Me in a Nutshell" is a surprisingly short intro. I'm shocked that I didn't end up turning it into an essay like everything else - this post for instance is getting longer than necessary.

All I want to say is that I'm now on WordPress with the username melaniepaigeblog (I seemed to think it was good 3 years ago). This will be an interesting new adventure. Let's see if I remember to post instead of letting it collect digital dust in the endless void that is the internet.

I'm stopping now.
Peace out! 😘💗

Day 21 in the #romancewritersjuly challenge is Worst Romance Book...now to be fair, I can't actually say this is the worst romance book I've read, because I haven't finished it...3 times. I wanted to read this book because so many people love it, and generally I love historical romance, but I've started it 3 times & I can't get into it. Will it ever happen between me & The Bronze Horseman? I don't think so. I want to read a book that captures me within the first 100 pages & this one just doesn't. #thebronzehorseman #notmyfave #romance #lovestory #lifestooshorttoreadacrapbook #melsbookreview #bookstagram #booklover #bibliophile #book #paperback #bookreview #bookgram #bookish #bookworm #amreading #amwriting #readersofinstagram #reader #read #books #bestseller #review #historicalromance #russia

We see princes in shining suits planting gentle kisses on the lips of a love they’ve never met

in Technicolor.

We see men

Mixing a drink with their pinky finger

For a woman they’ve just met

Across a loud, crowded room.

And then we see wolves

Licking their fangs

Four feet in front of us.

We’re in a corner
And our eyes are wide

They’ve always been circling us

Only now we pay attention

And it’s almost too late.

Run, fast.

I tell them

I’m talking to the wolves.

So we’re totally obsessed with young Love because of how real it feels to fall in love for the first time. Everything, Everything was so sweet and Love Simon was just as sweet! The actor portrays both the leads in these two which further proves he can have chemistry with just about anyone! #romancewritersjuly #diverseromancewriter #weneeddiverseromance #diverseromance #bookstagram #amwriting #writersofig #authorsofinstagram #booknerdigans #bookaholic #bookish #igreads #booknerd #currentlywriting #romanceauthor #goodreads #authorsofcolor #booklover #bibliophile #booklove #authorlife #multiculturalromance #interracialromance #wocinromance #blackromanceauthor #irromance

Draft 1 of “The Nawie”, my first horror novel, began Nov.10, 2017 and today I finished Draft 4, aka: my Final Draft! It feels a little surreal and I’m a mix of excited, nervous and a little sad. I love this novel and I hope all of you will love it as well. *
*
Next phase: marketing, publishing and promotions. I’ll be releasing more teasers, contests and some super dope and creepy video teasers as well. *
*
Many thanks to my supporters, followers and anyone who liked a post.
I raise this here Brown Sugar Old Fashioned in cheers to you to the luck and life of “The Nawie”. #woot ☠️

*Teaser, just a few more chapters to go*
I was his worst nightmare dressed in a f**king suit. I would be the last face he sees, right before he took his last breath. Sending him into a black pit where his body would rot in hell.

I'm so thrilled to announce that I have a literary agent!
🤩
Linda Epstein of Emerald City Literary Agency offered me representation after reading my middle grade magic realism. The happy match came about thanks to Writers Victoria who awarded me the Nielma Sidney Travel Fund, which allowed me to attend the Highlights Foundation Summer Camp at the Barn. That's where I met Linda and we really hit it off (look at how happy we are in that photo! It's like we knew what wonders were in store for us!)
🦄
So thanks to lots of fortuitous happenings, and a bunch of hard work I now have an agent! 🙌
*Squee!* Like, actual *SQUEEEE!*
🌈
I've written about it on my blog (link to my other amazing announcement in my bio, then you'll be able to find it).
😁
Everything's coming up Michael.

Don't start writing thinking it's the easiest job in the world and that it's always smooth sailing. Yes, it's fun! Yes, it's an amazing hobby, and if you're lucky enough, yes, a great job to do.
.
But writing is not always easy. And sometimes very hard.
.
Writing for some comes naturally, and I envy those people. But for the rest of us, we struggle, we battle with ourselves choosing the right words, then delete them. We argue with ourselves in the same way a mathematician would when trying to solve a maths problem. Because writing is like solving a puzzle. We have to make sure everything fits.
.
Perseverance is needed. Be resilient when you hit a wall. Develop a thick hide when you get to the point that you're sending your work out. Ask for feedback and take it in. But don't let the negative stop you!
