I have never written one before. I have written poems but never in a narrative style. So this is a first for me. I don’t even know whether there is a genre for this: fantasy-poetry.
How it all started?
- Back in July 2018, there were too many things going on with my life. I was in and out of the hospital. So I wanted to put myself at ease, and had to put my mainstream novel on hold so I can work on something simple! Something like a collection of poems, and since I love writing poetry, so why not!
So I had to do some major tweaking here and there…but did I survive writing this project?
I didn’t. Haha.
Thoughts of wanting to abandon the project were in my mind. I wasn’t thinking straight. A part of me wants to work on something new, and another was feeling like, ‘No, I’m not going to do that, that is cruel.’ Even though this is a quirky story, I still want to make it work.
One day, I decided to sit down and create an outline for it. And from there, I wrote a pitch for it, and a logline in case I needed to refer in the future. I also can keep in mind what this quirky, fun story is about. I tend to forget stuff so yep!
And I got it! I know what this story is going to be.
