No. I’ve not written a knock off of the E.L. James’ series. I’ve been painting -The living room. The dining room. The hallway. The office. Whew! Who knew there were so many shades of beige?
While standing atop my ladder, inhaling paint fumes, it occurred to me that the painting process is similar to the writing process. It starts out messy; at times the stench is pungent enough to clear a room; few can appreciate what the final outcome will be, including the creator and the only way to get to the end is to keep working at it. Then suddenly, miraculously, it’s done and you realize that all of the work was worth the effort.
Speaking of writing, I’ve managed to put the final edits on Unlocked Diaries – to be published soon! And, I’ve made a serious dent on my second novel, The Call. Also, a micro-flash fiction I submitted was selected to be included in Serious Flash Fiction: Volume 4. Woohoo!
I’ll do my best to blog more frequently, between home improvement and writing projects, but we can also keep up with each other on twitter and Facebook. You can find me at @MsMoxieMalone.
