Writing Musings.

So, last night I sat down and opened up my word document and the story that I've been faithfully, happily working on was in coded gibberish....and I can't get it back!  I'm pretty upset about that.  But, I'm praying about it, and meanwhile, I decided to work on some character enhancing and also try to re-write what I lost.

I started scrolling through a blog, looking for tools to use, and then it struck me.....I don't have a villain!  At all!  I was planning it all out and getting really excited, and I don't have a villain.  How on earth did I miss that?  Huge plot hole right there.  I'm workin' on it.  :)

So, the title of my story/novel/book (for now, anyway) is "The Scarlet Princesses."  I really can't tell you much about it now, but....I'm very excited about it.  :)  I've been thinking on this idea for a pretty long time now, and I had written the first chapter and part of the second, and then I deleted all of it and decided to start again.  :)

It took me a while to figure out what my main character's name would had to be fitting, feisty, have a relatively fitting meaning, and be true to her nationality.  But I finally decided on Flann.  And that's all I can say.  :)

Anyway, just had to let out some writing rambles.

God bless you guys and have a great week!  :)

Yes, hurry please Joy, and work on this book. :) I am just as frustrated as you about the word document! Keep writing....I know it will be good!

Love you! 10!

How terrible to be unable to uncode your story in progress, Joy! Once, I lost my book that I'd been writing in for more than two years and I only had an older printed version of the story in random sheets. With God's help I didn't give up, and the reworked story - The Crown of Life - is now a far more developed story! So I hope all the best with 'Scarlet Princesses' (I love the title!)... it sounds so intriguing. Ah, villeins are fun things to write - especially if they have a compelling past :).

God bless, and keep up the good writing!
Lots of love in Christ,

Oh dear, oh dear!! That is so terribly frustrating. :( I hope you can get it fixed!!! I understand the feeling. I thought I had lost some of my writing when my computer crashed, but good ol' Word saved it for me!

Your story sounds very exciting!! And Flann. How enchanting and unique...
