Partly due to my move, partly due to the fact that I have only written about 500 words in my story.
I like sharing snippets, but I don't have many to share. It is going somewhere, the ideas have arrived, and the world is forming.
I was freaking out a bit at first because it wasn't unfolding like my Beauty&Beast retelling. None of the character's were formed and it seemed generic, boring even.
No worries, it somehow fixed itself with a mix of coffee and prayer.
I now have a tentative outline in my mind ( I have a mind palace guys, it's safe)
So, my entry is different and honestly I didn't like it at first. It was the only idea I had so I went with it. You can find a synopsis here Show and Tell
Along with a lot of other entrants stories and synopsis. Check them out!
My story, 'Kiss My Eyes' is about a 14 year old girl who has cancer and is facing an operation. The story itself is her fantasy world she creates. A tale that mirrors her own life.
There is a bit of gender bending, and a diverse cast of characters including an ogre boy, goblins, crazed fairies and a one very obstinate princess.
Here is one snippet.
I ignore the call from Aden, my assumed friend. The assumption was his.
"Are you there?" I can tell by his tone that he has no intention of leaving.At least until he is rewarded with a response.
Which I am hesitant to give to the Jackanapes.
"No." I call back, "Go away."
"Ah, ha so you are there, Oh sullen princess." I hear scraping, he is probably attempting to climb the wall again.
I pull myself off my bed where I had been sulking, "Not sullen, imprisoned and cursed." I shout back.
His untrimmed head appears at my window, "Well than I shall have to break your curse with a kiss." He straddles the sill, and pursues his lips at me. His exaggerated motions sent him over the sill and onto the floor.
"Only a Prince's kiss will do, dolt." I spat, throwing my hair back saucily.- Kiss My Eyes
