A Novel Idea #3


Hey, young bloods! Today I'm linking up with Sky and Ashley for A Novel Idea, a fabulous weekly writing link-up. This week, the prompt is to post a quote from one of your WIPs, so I'll be sharing a snippet from The Other Side of Hope. It's the third book in my sorcery quartet (trilogy? who even knows at this point) - and shhhh, yes, I know I'm not even halfway done with the first book. (NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW.) Sometimes snippets just scream at me to be written and I must oblige. xD Like the following quote:

The sun was ever-shining in the Red City.
Now, it being evening, the sun had cooled from the bright white fire it had been at midday to a smoky red ember. It cast bloody light through the streets of the City, where cackles and screeches roiled around in a deafening soup of noise. Xiath’s kingdom was a land of the Undead, of fire demons who made deals with mortal thieves and murderers and evil men. It was a land forever hot and wicked and haunted by those who had sold their souls or were in the market for buying - an earthly Hell. And the Red City, the capital, was where most deals were made.

I hope you enjoyed that small snippet of writing. <3 Also, before I go, I created a survey for you to give me feedback on my blog! Click here to take it - I'd really appreciate it :)

Let's chat! Do you ever skip ahead in your writing? And are you participating in A Novel Idea? Comment below, and remember that you are all very beautiful pickles. <3

Namarië,
Ellie

  3. I've actually never skipped ahead in my writing, except for the odd line or two that I'll jot down onto an index card until I need it. For some reason my brain doesn't work that way; I have to be very linear. I wish I could skip around, though. In some ways, I think it would be more fun.

    1. I think there are merits to both ways! It sounds like you're quite organized in your writing, which is something I definitely need to work on.
