This is unexpected, isn’t it?
I’ve talked about writing before. Okay… I’ve hinted at it from time to time. The reason why I’ve never talked much about it is because I don’t want to jinx myself by talking about something that might never get finished.
I’m notorious for not finishing my WIPs.
I really like this WIP, guys! I feel like it’s the story I’m meant to write. Yeah, yeah, I know that sounds cliché, but whatever. I haven’t felt this excited about a project in a long, long time and I want to share it with someone.
There’s only one problem…
I can’t tell you much about it! YET. I’ve only written about a quarter and I’m still figuring out the plot myself.
What I CAN tell you is that it’s split up into two timelines
because I just loooove to make things complicated and hard for myself both of which are narrated by Liv (17). I’m not even going to try and formulate the plot I’ve come up with thus far. Instead, I’m going to list a couple of things that you may or may not find in my WIP
- the enemies to friends trope (between two girls!)
- childhood friends who reconnect years later… and become more than friends
- summer school
- powerful, controlling families
- many, many secrets
- Game of Thrones / HP references
- web comics
- girl power / feminism
- complicated family dynamics
That doesn’t sound particularly cheery, does it? But that’s exactly what I’m going for. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I prefer emotional (somewhat “darker”) books to ones that are fluffy and happy. Basically, I want to make my readers cry and I’m not even sorry.
I realise that all of this makes little sense (heck, sometimes it doesn’t even make sense to me!). So as to not make this a completely useless post, I’m going to share my character aesthetics with you. It’s the first time I’ve ever done these but I’m really happy with them even though it took me HOURS
, which is time I probably should’ve been spent writing
So, without further ado, here are…
I’m reaaalllyyy nervous about sharing this with you so I hope you like it!
