Day 12 & 13

I’ve got another confession to make: since my first day of actually hitting the 750 word target on 750words.com, I’ve written another post (again, a piece about myself) and I exceeded 750 words with a whopping 1216. Today, I went on the site again, hoping to push myself and keep the magic going and I was able to complete 800+ words. However, the words didn’t go towards finishing an old story. Instead, it’s gone towards a new story.

I had a bizarre dream the other night…very science-fiction and (I will admit) influenced by Tia and Tamara Mowry. It was about twins and their care-giver on the run from something or someone. I think I thought of those twins because I was watching their reality show before I went to bed, but I’ve been trying to remember more about the dream and when that happens, that means that I’m on the verge of a new story or something about that dream I find story worthy.

I see that science fiction/ fantasy may be the genre that I would very much like to pursue. Though I’ve written tons of short stories with a realistic fiction vibe, something about the sci-fi world allows me to expand my thoughts more.

I do need to finish my stories; I need to finish at least one before the new year.

Hopefully I can produce something memorable.

I will be posting an excerpt of my chapters from my unfinished novel soon. Feedback is always welcome.

w/love
