#IWSG: Story Update and My Writing Space

 

Insecure Writers Support Group Badge

Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Here is the complete list of participants.

How is everyone on this fine Wednesday in December? I have written right at 40,000 words for Town Curse now. The story is shaping up and I like the path it has taken right now. There are some interesting twists unfolding for the main character and some of the other characters. I have to write another 20,000 words for my next thesis but NaNo helped me to get a jump on that. I have right now about 2500 words written for the 20,000 assignment(s) for next term which starts the week before Christmas for me. I only have 3 more terms and I’ll have my degree. I will receive my online teaching certification in January. This will be a birthday present for me as my birthday is happening right around the time I receive it. The other 3 terms will finish up the creative writing side of the degree.

IWSG Optional Question:

What are five objects we’d find in your writing space?

That’s easy. The first object would be my laptop which I do all my writing and schoolwork on. The second object would be post-it notes. The third would be pens and highlighters. The fourth would be folders which hold my syllabi and class assignment grade rubrics. The fifth object would be my textbooks and other reference books I use.

Saving Infiniti by Rose Garcia

Title: Saving Infiniti
Author: Rose Garcia
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Publication Date: December 14th, 2018
Cover Designer: Regina Wamba at Mae I Design
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:
Welcome to Havenwood Falls, a small town in the majestic mountains of Colorado. A town where legacies began centuries ago, bloodlines run deep, and dark secrets abound. A town where nobody is what you think, where truths pose as lies, and where myths blend with reality. A place where everyone has a story. Including the high schoolers. This is only but one…
Infiniti Clausman is making the most of senior year. Throwing parties, pulling pranks, and breaking all the rules, she’s determined to graduate with a bang! But there’s one thing on her senior year bucket list she hasn’t been able to cross off yet—falling in love. In fact, she’s never even been kissed.
Infiniti hopes to change this when she travels from Houston to Colorado for the holiday break. Instead, she finds her world turned upside down when she discovers all things supernatural exist, time travel is real, and her very life is at stake. Suddenly, that kiss is the least of her worries.
Joe Greg will never forget the injured girl he and Kase Kasun found on the side of the mountain. It was 2012, and he was only twelve, but the image of the wreckage and his interaction with the girl has never left him. When he sees the girl again in 2018, she looks exactly the same. He figures out that she’s time-traveled to his present, with a reaper on her heels and a mystery to unravel. Drawn to protect her, he’s hell-bent on standing by her side. Even if it means his death.

Her mind reeled at the pieces of her ordeal filtering back into her memory. Throbbing pain. Splattered blood. Shards of glass. The guy looking younger and transforming into a wolf. What the hell was happening?
 
“Who are you?” the guy whispered.
 
“I’m Infiniti. I’m from Houston. Who are you?”
 
“I’m Joe, and I’m from here. Havenwood Falls.”
 
“Havenwood Falls?”
 
“Yeah.” He leaned over the table. “The town close to where you crashed. You were transported to the medical center.” He moved in even closer. “You disappeared.”
 
She stared at him in disbelief. She pressed her back against the booth. It took her a minute to find her voice. “I what?”
 
“You vanished. We searched for you for days. Months even. With no leads, we had to give up.”
 
Her hands folded and unfolded on her lap. Her mind raced. “I crashed. I woke up, and I walked over here.”
 
 
“You woke up? As in, just now?”
“Yes.”
 
Now now?”
 
“Yes. Like ten minutes ago now.”
 
His brows stitched together. He rubbed his chin. “So what happened to the last six years?”
Six years?
 
She examined his face. He most definitely looked six years older, but her car crash had happened that day. So that would be impossible. But then she thought of all the sci-fi movies she’d seen, and all her supernatural paraphernalia at home—her Ouija board, the spiritual cards her neighbor Jan had given her. She was a believer in all things unexplained, but had something otherworldly really happened to her? As in, for real?
 
Her hands trembled. She shivered. “It’s 2018?”
 
“Yeah, it’s 2018.”
