NaNoWriMo day 21/22 – another step forward

I actually published the first parts of my work in progress ‘Pink’ on WattPad tonight. Just a cover, description and the first four chapters. It was a pretty hard thing to do, because so far I’ve always kept my writing to myself. This is my fourth novel and yet it will be the first that …

Kings and Queens

So this is part of my #seizeThePen projects. You can see the rest here.   Countries watched as the two children walked up to each other, each one with a crown to heavy for them placed onto their heads. Daren looked at the girl in front of him and could do no more than blink. …
