My Writing



   

    I started writing fiction in 2014 when I decided to take a short break from my Psychology classes. That spring, I enrolled in my first fiction writing course. Our final project that semester was to write a nine to thirteen page short story of any genre we wanted. By the end of the semester, as I was completing my final draft, I realized that I could not seem to find an end. I became so enveloped in my characters to the point of even having vivid dreams of them at night as I fleshed out scenes by day.

   

     As it turns out, my final draft ended up being a total of twenty-six pages. Wow! The next semester, I even decided to take another class with the same professor. Somehow, I ended up writing several back stories (with the same characters). This helped to solidify the fact that this needed (and I mean absolutely needed) to become a novel. By the end of 2014, I made my first cosplay ensemble of my protagonist, Miss Celia Frost, and had a party with friends and family announcing that I was in the process of writing my first book.
