SO today’s prompt is supposed to be “Remind us what your WIP is about. Now everyone RT/share your favorites and state why you love them!”
But I am a rebellious teenager child.
And I like to break all the rules.
(Okay not for actual real, I’m just being dramatic)
BUT. I’m not following this prompt because it’s quite heavy Twitter related, and I think we need to have a proper goodbye to Dement because
I’m actually putting it aside for now.
It’s been about eight months since I first started this draft and that’s just way too long to drag it out. I could have finished it in May if I hadn’t gotten a job, but since then I’ve never been able to pick it back up the way I had it this past spring. I’m not getting anywhere by beating my head against a wall, so I’ve decided to let it go. I don’t believe it will be gone forever, it’s too great a story to drift off and never return, but it needs some time by itself to re-percolate and replot itself into a better, fuller version.
It makes me sad because this reiteration of it was so good and I had such high hopes for it, but I’m confident that it will come back to me again when it’s ready.
As for #WIPjoy, I want to thank ALL of you again for spending this month with me. I love doing these post series’ and I can’t wait for the next one. (I think it’ll be in January? Bethany Jennings seems to do this about every three months.) I will feature a different book then as I have a few rattling around in my head that need attention, so that will definitely be something to look forward to.
Shennachie asked a question on one of the Character Take Over Week posts, so I will leave you with Reggie and Nevvy to answer.
Coffee or tea? And how do you take it?
Reggie: Coffee. Black. There is no other way.
Nev: *whispers* Hazelnut mocha.
Reggie: That is disgusting and an abomination to the name of coffee.
Nev: *sing-song voice* with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Reggie: THAT’S NOT EVEN COFFEE. Why not just drink hazelnut creamer if you’re going to dilute it so much you can’t taste the actual coffee anymore?
Nev: It is too, coffee. They sell it in the coffee shop.
Reggie: They sell smoothies and tea there too.
Nev: Hey, speaking of tea, that was part of the question.
Reggie: I drink tea when it’s served at the Capital, but not on my own.
Nev: I like tea, as long as it has sugar in it.
Reggie: What is it with you and doctoring up all your drinks?
Nev: What is it with you being such a drink purist?
Reggie: There’s a certain way certain things should be and you just can’t mess with them.
Nev: If you say so.
