Too Excited Not to Post...

After pulling off three of my best writing days ever—a total of 11,027 words—I've finished the draft of my fairy tale retelling! And I couldn't resist sharing. [EDIT: I'm an idiot. The link won't take you to my story, as my wording suggests. It's just an image. It'll be an indie- or self-published book eventually, if I can pull it off, which I expect to be able to do.]

42933 / 35000 (complete!)

Happy rest of 2011, and happy New Year!


  1. I clicked onto the picture, thinking that I'd get to read your newly finished draft--silly me! I hope you let us read it when it's all done, Jenna. :o)

    With gratitude for your lovely blog, and best wishes for a Happy New Year!!

  2. Haha! Carrie-Ann, I forgot that picture would link off the blog due to its being on Picasa, which would naturally make things confusing. Better let me revise first. :) But I'm looking forward to sharing the story!

    Best wishes to you, too!

  3. Yeah, I too thought you were sharing your story. But sharing your joy is good too, I guess. ;)

  4. Aw, dang! I confused everybody. I'm sorry. :S

  5. Bummer. I see I wan't the only one who got suckered by the link! Looking forward to reading it someday. :)

  6. OH MY GOODNESS it's my wording. I said "I couldn't resist sharing."

    Dang it! I'm really sorry, everyone. I'll never share a first draft--it won't happen; I must revise first. But I do intend to make the story available as soon as I can, probably through independent micropress or self publishing (novellas are so difficult to get traditionally published nowadays that for me, for this, it's just not worth the effort.) Stay tuned!

  7. Haha!! You're not an idiot. :)
