70,698 Words

As promised, the first draft of my manuscript is complete! This is just the beginning but I wanted to share my feelings with you now.

These words…all 70,698 one of them…they are mine. I did this. I can’t even begin to explain the triumph I feel right now! I’m already thinking of the edits I have to make. But let me tell you how difficult it was to have the ending written before the rest of it was complete. I don’t want to give any of it away so you’ll have to see what I mean when you read it!


While writing, I was obsessed with Miley Cyrus – Maybe You’re Right, Sia ft. Diplo & The Weeknd – Elastic Heart, The Civil Wars – My Father’s Father, John Mayer – Edge of Desire




                I looked nervously around the room, aware of the few people still eating. A couple of them looked at us, smiling fondly at Edric. I slipped my hand into his and there, beside our food that had gotten cold due to the sparkling conversation, we danced.

                I melted when his hand gripped my waist. His other hand pulled mine upward until they were tucked between our joined bodies. Slowly we began to sway to the music as Edric’s eyes told me he loved me a million times over.


I want to thank you all for accompanying me on this journey but stay tuned! We are only on our way there!


All my love,
