Welcome to my all new author blog. I decided to move to Blogger from Wordpress because this is a lot more user friendly for me than WP was. It's been working out very well for me so far.
This isn't the only new thing around here. See my gorgeous new blog design? It is brought to you by the absolutely amazing Pandabops Design. I highly--highly--recommend Giada for your blog design needs. Her communication and skills are the best around.
Other than the revamping of this blog, I've been hard at work with a new story. Initially, it was supposed to be a short story. A writer friend and I were working on putting together a compilation of short erotic stories, so I started brainstorming short story ideas. This one came to me and I started writing it. In fact, I finished writing the short story at approximately 4000 words. I started working on expanding the story: adding in details, rewording, etc. Then something strange happened. While the story worked to some degree, it felt like something was missing. It felt... incomplete.
The more I thought about it, the more I realized that this isn't a short story. Far from it. I started to outline it as a novella, then discovered there was even more to this story. It's slowly turning into a full-length novel. In this story alone, I wrote 10,000 words in 11 days. I can't tell you how exciting it is for me to be so inspired by a story. I've had stories get to me, but not like this one. Never like this one. And then, another one came to me too, drawing me in until I couldn't stop thinking about it. So, here we go again with an overabundance of inspiration.
Right now, I'm working on the second one, a novella, which I'm trying really hard to put all my energy into right now. I feel like I'm constantly going through a "one step forward, two steps back" phase with my writing. I'm not going to let life get in my way though. I'm going to do my best to get a second book written and published as soon as I possibly can. And that's all I can ask of myself right now. You can't rush genius. Or crappy first drafts. Lol.
And by the way, I now have an official Facebook page! Just click the link there and "like" it to stay up to date with everything going on in the world of Lilly Avalon. Hey, that rhymed! Ha!
Alright, until next time...
