Okay, I'm a tease.

To be fair, I did say the first chapter wouldn't be up long. To everyone who had the opportunity to read it, my thanks.

I want to give a shout out to my #WIPFTW buddies on Twitter. This wonderful group of writers came up with the idea, for those of us who needed a kick in the pants, to finish our work-in-progresses by November 1st.

I started Djinni in April, right after I finished Juju's Child. The main character Cairo has undergone quite a metamorphosis since the first chapter. She's matured from a slightly egocentric, spoiled brat into a layered and thoughtful character.

As I enter the final chapters of the manuscript, I'm quivering with excitement. I have no idea what's going to happen next. I have some idea, but this story tends to go off outline in pretty surprising ways. Luckily, I've always enjoyed the direction Cairo decides to go in.

I hope her character survives. Not everyone will (sorry Sarah, don't kill me)


  1. Awww man, and I was gonna read it! Dang, too slow!

  2. Greenwoman,

    It's not your fault. Not only am I an impulse shopper, apparently, I'm an impulse poster.

    If I have time to consider whether I really need something, I usually take it back.

    Unless it's brownies. I love me some brownies.

  3. What?!? I saw that on my feed and I was mentally doing a reminder to come back and read it when I'm on my desktop (iphones are too small, and my eyes have been strained lately from doing #WIPFTW).

    Oh well. Maybe next time...? ;)

  4. Cherie,

    I'm still unsure of what I should and shouldn't post on my blog. I was advised that posting from a wip isn't the best idea, lol.

    Live and learn:)

  5. As if life, not everyone survives. Ehehehehe. I can't wait to see what you do. Speaking of which...


Now it's your turn. What do you think?
