This is the post excerpt.
My name is Alexandra Mars. If you guessed it, I am an inspiring author pursuing my goal to become published. My friends, call me, Alex, and welcome to my blog. I write fantasy and science fiction because I find that genre fascinating to me, for there are so many paths a writer can take in his/her world.
I have been creating stories my whole life when I was a child, my Barbie dolls and My Little Ponies all had their own personalities. In middle school I discovered my creative writing skills, and I have remained on this path ever since. The journey to arrive at this point hasn’t been easy for me, and at times been very arduous. Now, I see excellent things in my future, and I hope you and I can take the next stage of this wonderful journey together.
You’re probably wondering what’s the next stage, I’ll tell you, my friend. In 2017 I will release my debut saga here on my site. I am excited!
In the meantime, I will be discussing many topics on writing and my life in my blog.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you continue to follow my blog.
In April, I completed my rough draft of my short story. At the beginning of May, I started reviewing my story. I am in the process of editing my draft one. This stage is a bit time consuming for I’m placing my characters in certain events to have an intriguing plot with good pacing.
The new scenes, rewritten original scenes, and the new changes in Draft One there is more a define direction in the story. I’m focusing on the plot, pacing, and the events in the correct order to create a fantastic story for my readers.
On a personal note, my family adopted a kitty, Golden Shadow from a local rescue two years ago. I can’t believe how time flies. In February he turned three. He is one happy cat and enjoying life.
If you want a pet, please adopt from a local shelter or a rescue you will be saving an animal’s life. If you can’t adopt, please consider donating money or volunteering so an animal can find a forever home.
Last Wednesday, I finished my rough draft of my short story I have been working on. It is nice to have a finished draft before I start the editing stage.
Sometimes, it is hard to finish writing projects dealing with Attention Deficit Disorder. I managed to stay focus on my task.
I had been spending time with my family for the past couple of weeks and enjoying the nice weather. There have been many distractions, but I stayed committed to finishing my short story. I did it!
My short story is finished. I have a rough draft.
Today is the first day of spring! Once again, I made it through another winter but, it wasn’t that harsh. Something deep within my soul tells me winter is done.
I believe we are connected with nature; and our ancestors knew winter was a dangerous time because the hardship of the cold and dark season, and why we celebrate the first day of spring.
Now, the temperatures are warming up slowly and more sunny days are coming. The trees are still asleep; I’ve watched for leaves to bud. Nothing. It won’t happen until April.
Also, spring brings severe weather like tornadoes and strong winds. Already, March has been very rainy and windy too in northern Indiana.
I’m wondering if March will roar like a lion, but it will be revealed at the end of March.
My life has been a little crazy for me lately for I have been dealing with a sick kitty. He is feeling better now after I took him to the vet about two weeks ago. The Golden Shadow is back to his old self. It is good to see him running and playing through the house.
I have been focusing on my short story which I am almost done with it. A couple of days ago, I wrote the ending. Now, I need to write the remaining scenes for the climax. Then I will put it aside for a while before starting the editing stage.
Then I will work on another writing project and finish reading some novels that I have been reading.
That’s what I’ve been doing for a couple of weeks.
