I like to write about things that make me feel and connect me to other people’s experiences. At the moment I am writing Fiction, and have a small fantasy project. I need help with getting some ideas organized and fleshing out characters to make them feel a bit more realistic and less wordy.
I love YA books, poetry and some adult classics.
I love lyrical books, flowery language and a good character development as well as grey characters! (No good or bad, make me see them as people with possibilities of growth in all areas)
I think a good story can be found anywhere, yet I do not really feel drawn to the horror genre.
A girl comes to the big city to find that her friends have become famous and that what she thought was going to be a good opportunity for work brought her closer to a boy with an agenda to get back to fame at her cost.
It felt wrong, kissing her. Colby hated the taste of her lips, but the feeling of kissing, of focusing on his breathing and nothing else, it was a chase. A chase he needed. She was feeling worthless, he was feeling like a fraud. They both needed this, and she understood. She seemed to be rolling with the same feeling. They were both broken and if they kept breaking, tearing, maybe then their broken pieces could fit together. They could mend each other. Be the step that they both needed to keep on street and not fall down into the ocean.
Melody helping them. Melody laughing with them. Melody being with them. Any one of them! She was looking away from him…walking away…and then he kissed Madeline harder.
With each breath, Colby tried to erase Melody from his mind, the look of her back to him, the pain that moment brought. Not a sharp pain, but a heavy pain; a pain from inside. Almost like back then, like a version of Colby wanting to break free from his gut and hold her, not letting Mel get any further away from him.
I want to write a contemporary novel that is longer and has a a lot to do with flashbacks.
I am also plotting a fantasy novel that has a lot to do with he surreal and elusive.
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
