it's easy to SAY you're going to host a blogfest, but as for actually participating...
well, of course i'm going to participate, but i have a problem. i just hope my writer friends don't hate me for it.
i have A LOT of favorite scenes.
that's the problem with writing novellas for myself. (i used to call them short stories, but they generally end up being 25,000 to 30,000 words, so i can't really call them short stories.)
and why do i write novellas for myself? because my brain gets bored with 2nd drafts and it has to do something new or it won't cooperate with me. also, my novellas are usually less complex than my novels, and i'm writing them for me (not an audience), so they tend to come out of my brain easier because i'm not worried about what anyone will think.
excuse me, i digress. back to the subject at hand.
so i have 7 novellas hanging around on my hard drive, 2 novels in progress, and 1 completed novel that i self-published. i enjoy reading them all.
should i use a scene from the one about the man who comes to earth in the 1800's, chasing a criminal from his home planet? or what about the one where a guy from modern earth ends up on a world where the women own men as slaves? of course, there are the 2 mermaid stories i've written. and there's a chick lit novel that's in its 3rd draft. but there are also 3 about slaves who find freedom.
decisions, decisions, decisions.
i hope you have an easier time deciding than i do. whatever you choose, you can sign up here for my July 1 blogfest: Share Your Darlings
welcome to my blog
welcome to my blog
i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-lover, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.
all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...
