So That Ugly Draft with That Elkanah Guy is Done!

Sooo this happened  last night. I was going to crop and cut because it’s messy and ugly but then I thought, nope. This is writerlife.This is how my process rolls. My initial thoughts are messy, imperfect, incomplete,…  I call this an Ugly First Draft (#UFD) for a reason. I don’t know when I’ll get around to first edits as I have other stories pending want to figure out this new series a bit more before I start the process of getting it out. But Elkanah’s story is out of my head. One more step before I can put it to bed completely until it’s time.

For those who try to read my not-so-great scratch 😁 it reads:

“Because of the losses he bared and what the pain of that made him do, maybe the stain on his soul from all of it was enough.  Maybe justice was the images he could never forget. Only Elkanah Bennett knew for sure and for Sheriff Thaddeus Johns, that was as good as it got.”

I am contemplating another story I’ve had on the back burner for a while… I’ll keep you posted!

Notes From Palessa, , ,

About A~P

Palessa started reading her first romance novel, at the age of 11. Then she got introduced to V.C. Andrews, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Anne Rice and many more notable contemporary authors as well as some of the classics, A Tale of Two Cities, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Great Gatsby and others. It was during her teenage years that she dabbled in writing. First, it was in her diaries, then she started creating characters, stories about romance, the supernatural and much more. Being an International Baccalaureate student as well as entering college, left little time for writing and so she put it and the ideas aside to pursue a career. It would take almost 20 years, a radical move from the city she grew up in, Miami, FL back to her Caribbean birthplace, and a chance Facebook meeting with Sable Hunter to start the juices flowing again. After some fits and starts, the Baxter Family Saga was born. Unchained Hearts is Palessa's first published fiction book with Beau Coup Publishing. She considers herself just a storyteller that sees no reason to shy away from the juicier romantic elements. She currently lives in the mountains of Jamaica with her crazy, cracker-munching-mutt Ivy and a farm, primarily managed by agribusiness partner, also known as Dad.
