If you know anything about giving birth and writing books, you might say that they’re pretty much the same exact thing.
This is what I try to explain to new friends while they nervously giggle and ask me to please stop touching their hair. You’re the one who decided to use conditioner, lady!!!
But I digress.
What I mean is that writing characters is TRULY a labor of love.
And if creating these crazy cats is all about love, then having to quietly snuff them out is all about eating Doritos and drinking all the hot chocolate and blaming it on your child. Or the dog. Blaming the dog also works.
God bless pets.
My skin is still tinted orange and I’ve yet to wipe off the chocolate mustache.
I was dreading the “goodbye,” the hug and kiss and the “See you in my hot chocolate induced dreams!,” but then I got to thinking: What if I don’t have to nix Wren for good?
So I’m doing it. I’m saving Wren.
I’m writing a serialized novel based on Wren’s life on Wattpad.
This means you can read it for free.
And that my dog is allowed to look me in the eye again.
WRITE A REVIEW OF WREN
In addition to giving Wren for free, I’d love to hear feedback about the character, the book, how amazing I look smeared in Doritos…you know, usual writer stuff. So here’s what I proposed on Ello, and I’m going to give my WP peeps a similar version:
- Read Wren for free here: http://bit.ly/WrenTheNovel
- Write a review of the book on your blog (an honest, on point review, please!).
- Link your review in a comment below plus also leave a link to something you’d like to promote.
- I’ll promote your link (it can be a book you’ve written, a blog post, my diary from the sixth grade – get creative!) on Twitter and in a round up blog post this coming Friday.
I will also put you in my will. I hope you like Doritos!!
