Two things happened recently that I’ve been waiting a long time to happen. I’d long given up on either of them happening.
The first is that I found a title for my novel.
The relief I feel at this happening is enormous. I really thought I’d be selling this book with some horrible title that just never really fit. I’ve only told one person the title. I’m just not ready to share it. It’s been sitting with me for a few weeks, solidifying and becoming permanent. I’m letting myself know what it feels like to have this title before I can see how others react. This is the first time I’ve had to keep a potential title to myself.
The second thing is that I’ve heard a song that is totally my novel. If I had to pick a theme song this would be it–it describes it in so many ways. So many authors have songs that depict their novel, and the fact that I didn’t was always a bummer to me. I thought I just wasn’t cool like that. Guess I was wrong :) The song is Radio Active, Imagine Dragons.
Other than that I’ve been busy getting my novel complete. Most of my brain power is designated to writing, and there’s not much left for my blog. I’m just writing as much as I can. Here’s hoping by the end of the summer I’ll have good news about my progress. I’ll be popping in occasionally.
Have a great summer!!!!
