Yay Lilly VS Willie has finally got an illustrator! So excited. Got the first drafts for the main characters last night and am almost lost for words! They are exactly how I pictured them in my head and so happy to finally see the story coming to life! Ran them past the children this morning (who better to judge a children’s book than children?) and they were very excited about it. After 2 very long years of wondering if this book was ever going to make it to publication I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. 🙂
Another 1000+ words into Don’t Rock The Boat and I am feeling good. I have decided that bite size writing sessions are the way to go. This book is forcing me to draw on some very deep and personal emotions which can be exhausting but it is also strangely exhilarating. I am currently writing a very emotionally charged chapter which is exploring some of the darker corners of the human psyche and I am having a great time and realising a few things about myself in the process. This chapter is also going to provide a chance for some excitement too which I look forward to. One or two more paragraphs and my imagination will be released full throttle! I know that I am of course biased as the author however I really feel that Don’t Rock The Boat has the potential to become an epic story.
Hope you all have an awesome day 🙂
