How I Wrote My First Novel (#tbt Pics!)

Hi!Β πŸ’–Β It’s been a while.Β  I was getting over a back injury and enjoying a concert.Β  More on that later, but let me show you something awesome I found!

I had almost forgotten that I wrote my first novel with nothing but a pen and tiny pieces of paper!Β πŸ˜‚

At the time, I was working an office job with empty hours between clients.Β  Tired of browsing Google news, I started to jot down this idea I got in my head.Β  The idea was inspired by Kerli’s song, “Walking on Air,” which I had heard one morning while driving to work.

This paper is the size of my hand, with tiny Sharpie handwriting 😁

I would just push the work keyboard aside and write while I waited for my next client.

Why the tiny notebooks?Β  Because it was all I had at the time.

On and on I wrote and stapled the papers together.Β  Then I would mark the ones I had typed.

Soon the clients started pouring in (finally) and I wrote the rest of the story on my laptop at home, on my own time.

After a while, I was able to finish my very first attempt at a novel.  I even did the ebook cover myself 😊 Here is the end product:

Bryexe ebook cover.

Bryexe: She Lives in a Dollhouse

Amazon $0.99

Barnes & Noble $0.99

Also available at various ebook stores and iBooks.

I guess we really don’t need much to start writing, do we? 😁 Just an idea, an inspiration, and something to scribble on.

So, I was gone because I pulled my back and was in a lot of pain.Β  Then I recovered just enough to see Sarah McLachlan in concert~ no way was I going to miss my favorite artist!!
