Spring has sprung and a new project is in the air!
I thought Kwizera was ready to go, then I posted the first 250 words on a blog contest. Wow! Some comments were really out there (a child leaving school to help her family is a sci-fi/fantasy cliche?); some were constructive.
A few days to process the “info dump” has helped and now I actually look forward to re-writing the beginning – not revising, re-writing. First, I will take a class on non-verbal expression for writers. Then I will re-write the beginning of Kwizera with new knowledge in my brain.
In the meantime my new WIP (work in progress, for my non-writing friends) is coming along nicely. All I can say for now is that it is part historical, part coming of age, with a mysterious fantasy-related twist. I will explore mother-daughter relationships, independence, entitlement, and anti-Semitism.
