Welcome to WIPpet Wednesday, a weekly blog hop which encourages writers to move WIPs (works-in-progress) to publication by posting excerpts related to the date. It’s hosted by the lovely K.L. Schwengel, maven of bad boys, stock dogs, and flying monkeys!
This week, I’ve got something brand-new – as in, less than a day old. It’s the beginning of my April CampNaNo Novella #1 (I hope to do two this month, assuming I can get the second one plotted!).
So what is this project? Well, last year, for the Blogging from A-Z April Challenge, I wrote 26 stories set at the Kifo Island Hospice Resort, which is a bit like Fantasy Island for the dying and their families.
During the course of writing the stories, I realized that what I had could be the basis for a series of novellas.
Transitions is Volume One in the Kifo Island Chronicles series. For now, let’s say that it’s a love triangle, with unexpected angles. It’s a contemporary fantasy/romance, or at least that’s what I think it is now, at the beginning of things…
- Today is April 1, 2015 – no kidding!
- You get 1 sentence today –the first one. Try not to spend it all in one place, OK? =)
“Hey, Corinne – you ready in there?”
Yup, that’s it. Who’s Corinne? Well, you can find her original A-Z story here. Who’s talking to her? Not going to tell you. What’s she need to be ready for? Nope, not telling you that, either. If you’re curious, though, you can pop over for my #8Sunday post, where I’ll share a snippet 8 times as long as this one. =)
Hopefully, by next Wednesday, I’ll need to be more selective about what I share…because I’m well into the novella.
