Angel Dust

I haven't posted in awhile, but everything has just been crazy in my little side of the world!

First, some super exciting news: my short story, Angel Dust, won first place for best fiction in the FCCPA Awards!!! The FCCPA Awards is basically a Florida State Community College Writing and Arts competition.

Angel Dust is a short story based on my novel Bloodstone. Drake, the narrator and main character of Bloodstone is in this story. Death, tragedy, love, and choices play a big part in my writing, so it comes to no surprise that Angel Dust is filled with all of these elements.

Also, I have been editing Silver Touch, and planning on re-writing Bloodstone this upcoming November for NanoWrimo, so I have been writing notes and outlining.

I think I have re-written Bloodstone about three or four times, but it still just doesn't feel right. I have set it aside since last Nano, and hopefully fresh eyes will catch small glints, plot holes, and flat dialogue.

Oh! And I am currently reading Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick and it is incredible!!! Just as good, if not better than Hush, Hush! So be sure to pick it up!

I know this post was short, but I have another short-story due tomorrow for class, so that calls for my attention. I'll try to post soon, though!!!

P.S- I haven't forgotten that I promised I would post pictures of my story board for both Silver Touch and Bloodstone! Soon!

Hope all is well in the writing world for all of you bloggers! Fill me in on all the exciting news! Oh, and who's participating in Nano this time around?

The waves broke out into a fury, galloping toward the shore, trying to reach the clearing, but all was gone. -Angel Dust
