Poetry Slam #16

Let the Author Turn the Page

One chapter is ending
As another one begins
There's a memory in each letter
But let the author turn the page

A hero's story ends in victory
Though the journey comes with falls
He carries on and grows from them
When the author turns the page

Find your strength from every conflict
And your hope from scenes gone right
Remember them and keep high hopes
For when the author turns the page

Let the words be in our past now
Not forgotten but let go
Because each sentence forms our future
Let the author turn the page

Happy New Year everyone.  :)

Blog Tour: Treason by S.M. Boyce

I'm happy to be one of the blog tour stops for S.M. Boyce's new book Treason!  Here's some more about it.

About Treason:

Ourea has always been a deadly place. The lichgates tying the hidden world to Earth keep its creatures at bay—for now. Kara Magari ignited a war when she stumbled into Ourea and found the Grimoire: a powerful artifact filled with secrets. To protect the one person she has left, she strikes a deal that goes against everything she believes in. But things don’t go as planned.  Braeden Drakonin can no longer run from who—and what—he is. He has to face the facts. He’s a prince. He’s a murderer. He’s a wanted man. And after a betrayal that leaves him heartbroken, he’s out for blood.  To survive, both Kara and Braeden must become the evil each has grown to hate.

Now let's meet the author!

S.M. Boyce is a fantasy and paranormal fiction novelist who also dabbles in contemporary fiction and comedy. Her B.A. in Creative Writing also qualifies her to serve you french fries. She updates her blog a few times each week so that you have something to wake you up in the morning.

And the NaNoWriMo verdict is...

...that I WON!! :D

It took me to the very last minute but I got there.  You probably know that I write my NaNo by hand but when it got to 10 pm and I was still about 3k words away from the 50k I got on the computer and typed the last bit up in the last hour and 15 mins.  Lol.  I couldn't let myself not finish when I was that close!

FINAL word count: 50005/50000


So I didn't finish the entire story yet but I think that I will.  I want to do a little outlining first I think but the very last sentence that I wrote was in the word document: (*Marcia* was my 50000 word I think)

They had to figure out a way to get out of trouble or to at least to not look like they were being suspicious and so they found a wall and Adan cornered *Marcia* and started to kiss her!

So how did my fellow Wrimos do?  Did you make your goal?  It's December so have a rest now everyone.  You deserve it!

(Huh, just noticed that this is my 100th published post.  Appropriate!  :D )
