As promised to everyone on the lovely site BookRix.com, I’ve uploaded the first chapter of an old WIP. It’s not in the condition I would like to “publish” it in, but I’m going to try and hold myself to the deadlines I’ve placed. Plus, I’m really getting into the story again. It’s strange to see how my writing has changed over the past 5 years and how it hasn’t. Honestly, I’m surprised that my high school self would start something that was so complex. It seems I’m incapable of writing anything that doesn’t require serious consideration.
I have four or five beginnings to stories, but only two of the starts were ever finished. Then, there’s the ten or so story ideas. Part of me hopes I’m not the only writer to give up a story part-way through… I feel bad leaving them behind. In the end, though, I hope to come back to them, like I did with Kerista. Maybe it’s just not the right time to finish a story. Maybe there’s something that needs to happen in life before I can finish it. Or maybe I just need to read more books before I finish it. Whatever the reasons, I’m glad I’ve come back to Kerista. Calypso is still in progress. I will finish Calypso by May 30th (hold me to it…), but I’m having fun with my monthly diversion.
Do you have any works in progress that are no longer “in progress?” I’d love to hear about them.
