I had a pleasant surprise when I finally decided to pick up the pile of plot cards titled Cladessa: Book II of The Taverner’s Daughter – somewhat curious to see what I had written ages ago before getting bogged down in revising Taniel.
I have my story sentence …
An ancient prophecy activates and more is at stake than an individual’s freedom to choose her path but Taniel is determined to use impending motherhood and magic to get her own way.
Not only that, I determined my story arcs for Taniel, Jarryd, Dax, Sam, and Rufus. Can a dragon have a story arc? Apparently, Rufus can. I have an arc for Hanrey, too, but can’t read my writing. Surely, he is not glued. I have character goals. I have a wish list of events in chronological order. I have shared the Wattpad cover.
Therefore, I have a plan!
And, in a flash of recall, I remembered that this plan was created November, 2016, with the intent of drafting Cladessa during NaNoWriMo. I’m such a gunna person! I’m always going to do this, going to do that, with no visible results. You can imagine my relief when I finally shuttled Taniel off to Amazon.
I actually wrote a book.
I had a physical rendition in my hands, yesterday. I comb-bound a copy for my mum but forgot to take a photo before shipping it off. I have to write the next ones really fast as Mum says she has few years left.
I reckon that is incentive enough to pull my finger out and get cracking. So, without further ado, I shall put away the laptop and START.
