New Story Idea

Goodness! I’m guessing y’all are probably wondering when in the world I’m going to post the rest of my writing-to-publshing story, and that will come, it will. I just have to be in the right mood to write it. Plus, there are many other things going on in my life that I don’t want to leave out of this sweet little blog of mine. Not that the blog is actually sweet, but the readers are. =)

My dad and I have been talking for a while about writing a series of books that have to do with success principles, goals, habits, etc… And I’m happy (and a bit nervous) to announce the the time has come for me to sit down and do it. Just do it, girl! 

Our family, who has started eating extremely healthfully this year (like seriously no processed foods, mostly fruits, veggies and meat) decided to treat ourself to some ice cream and fruit last night. It was SO much fun! 

So now I’m working on the brainstorming. The books won’t be very long, maybe between 25,000 and 35,000 words a piece. Then we’re going to turn them into audio books as well. (We have all the necessary equipment from Dad’s business to do the audio, and we’ve done some stuff like this before as well, so we have the experience. It’s still quite a task to bite into though.)

I’ll let ya’ll know what I’m thinking, because then maybe you can give me some input or advice or whatever you want to call it.

  • There are going to be two main characters, a guy and a girl, both of them around 18 
  • I’m thinking the girl’s name will be McKenzie and the guy can be… Ideas, anyone?
  • The girl works at a business retreat place in the summer where small company’s can bring their staff for meetings. Her family owns it and she’s head chef (Side Note: This parallels with my life working at a private retreat center) 
  • McKenzie’s cousin (enter: guy) comes to work there for the summer 
Alright, so now you have the setting. Please, do let me know what you think of it. Thanks! =)
