Not gonna lie, I love it. You know how people always give the advice “write what you want to read.” Well I did it, and the results are fantastic! I don’t know if anyone else will like it but at the very least I am having the time of my life building this world and getting to know my characters. I was hoping to finish the rough draft before my 25th birthday (yesterday) but the book is much longer than I originally expected.
Flirting with 70k at the moment it just keeps going on and on. I don’t want to rush the ending, everything has been so organic up to this point the last thing I’d want to do is have a letdown, lazy ending or a pointless cliff-hanger that screams “I’m Lazy!” or “Buy my next book!”
Other than that things have been going well for me. Taking summer classes to prepare for my Econ Masters program and just wrapped up an extra role in the Thurgood Marshall Biopic starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, and Kate Hudson. The amount of talent on set (shout out Sterling Brown, Dan Stevens and James Cromwell) was mind blowing. I haven’t acted since the fifth grade Peter Pan play (I was some nameless pirate) so at first I wasn’t sure what to expect; it was more of a bucket list item for me than a career stepping stone. But holy crap was it more than anything I could’ve imagined. It was a truly memorable experience and I cannot believe how lucky I am to have been a part of it.
So, being 4th of July weekend, I took this extra day to finish this WIP. Tomorrow normal life begins again; I head back to work, and do the final touches on my August release Lost Boys.
As always thank you for reading.
