The most disappointing thing I have discovered about writing is that my readers will never have a grasp of my worlds like I do. All of the histories and tidbits will never make it into my stories. There's just too much information to share. Right now, they'll have to remain my secrets.
I recently did a little bit of editing and realized that so many of the wonderful things I wanted to share with all of you are dragging the flow down and putting my word count way above what it needs to be. So, I'm taking the scissors to it soon and snipping out many of the interesting but relatively useless facts to make it a better reading experience for everyone. It kind of feels like cutting out part of my heart.
Silver lining? I WILL make the information available somewhere after the book is released. That way, those who are interested can learn more about Maylen and the characters. If it takes a while, I give you guys complete permission to nag me until I get it done. Just give me a month or so after it hits the shelves so I can bask in my accomplishment for a while. Soak up the dream state and all.
As always readers, thanks for checking in! You can also now find me on Facebook, G+, and Twitter. For a special treat, look me up on Pinterest to find pics of people, places and other items that inspire pieces of my story. For those that don't have a Pinterest account, I'll try to get them moved over to my Facebook page as well. If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear them!
Thought for the day: Still so much work to do. I need Twizzlers and Corn Nuts.
