By that I mean write whatever comes into that pretty little noggin of yours. Don't censor yourself. Let yourself go into whichever path your creative mind chooses to take you. You can edit later. Trust me, the first draft of every single story you put together will be a horrible draft. It will be riddled with mistakes--from spelling and grammar to complete plot holes. You're not perfect and you shouldn't expect perfection right away.

The most important one: Don't give up. It's easy to give up. For some writers, they can write out whole drafts in a month. For others, it may take a whole year for one draft. Work at whatever pace works for you and don't let the small snags and speed bumps along the way derail your dream. Don't let one negative comment throw you. Haters are gonna hate, don't allow them to be the reason why you're not writing. I've had good AND bad reviews. Not everyone is going to like your style of writing. Let it go like water on a duck's back and keep pressing forward. You will not regret it.(less)

I'm hoping to get to work on it by the end of the year. I tried to get started on it last year right after I wrote it, but I wasn't feeling it at the time and decided to set it aside. I have in mind how I would like the story to go... but when I told my best friend the details, she asked some questions about the plot and characters and I couldn't answer them. So, I think I need a little bit more time to work out these "plot holes" before I can start writing the sequel. I'm hoping *fingers crossed* to be able to get to it by the end of 2015 and have a 2016 release. I hate to put it off that long, but I want to give Adrian and Hazel the story they deserve. :)

ETA: I probably won't be writing an official sequel, but I'm considering writing a short story of the morning after instead, since I've already dabbled in it. :)(less)

Somebody to Treasure Release Day!


It's release day for Somebody to Treasure!

After my year-long relationship ends abruptly, my best friend and movie star Jasper Schwarz whisks me away on a tropical vacation. The two of us have been friends for years, but this close proximity at a romantic location is stirring up emotions I never thought I'd have for him. I keep getting the feeling that he might be experiencing the same, but Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Lilly Avalon  (?)

“God, you're so sweet.” He holds my face in his hands and kisses me deeply. I slowly unzip his hoodie and touch a hand to his bare chest. I relish in the feel of it. Barely an hour ago I was admiring it from afar, and now it's no longer just a tease. When I slide my hand down to his stomach, he groans and his hands slip just under my shirt. “So that's why you didn't want to change.” I can feel his smile against my lips. “You just wanted me to take your clothes off for you.”

“Guilty.” I lift my arms for him to pull it off. Instead of returning to kissing me, his eyes roam down my body. I fight the urge to cover myself; even though my bra is still on, I feel exposed. His hands lightly touch each side along the seam. My breath catches in my throat.

Meeting my eyes, he says, “You're so damn beautiful.” He leans forward, pressing a soft kiss in between my breasts. I shiver at the light touch of his lips to my sensitive skin. If this is how he makes me feel with such little contact, then how will the rest of this feel? The need is building inside like a spark starting a fire.”
Lilly Avalon, Here All Along

“Did you want to change into something more comfortable?” Adrian asks with a raise in his eyebrows, breaking me out of my train of thought, but not away from naughty thoughts.

I smack his knee. “I'm comfortable, but I know you're not.” He doesn't mind dressing up, but on most days I see him in casual clothes like screen-printed tees and hoodies.

“You're right,” he says, tapping my knee lightly, standing up. As he walks toward the hallway, he slips his shirt off the rest of the way. I can't look away from the sight, even if it is only from the back. Damn. What is happening to me? Have I gone mad?

Before I can tear my eyes away from him, he turns around. Judging by the look in his eyes, I've been caught. I have so been caught. Damn again. I didn't want him to see me practically drooling. It's too late for that now.

He smirks. “You know, I could spend the rest of the night just like this.” He places a hand to the hard muscles of his chest.

I clear my throat, trying really hard not to imagine my hand in place of his, and say, “If I'm wearing clothes, you're wearing clothes.”

“So if I'm not wearing clothes...” I grab a coaster from the coffee table and fling it at him. He catches it in his hand. “Just remember, all you have to do is say otherwise.”
Lilly Avalon, Here All Along

“I need a drink. Now.”

After tossing—fine, throwing—my purse and keys on the couch, I march straight into the kitchen. No more delays; it's time to forget tonight. It’s been yet another night like all the other first dates that never meet a second one. When you begin to lose count, that's when it's really time for a drink.

Adrian stands there, leaning against the counter in an unbuttoned dress shirt and dark wash jeans. He glances at me as I walk in. “How was your date?” he asks, taking a swig of his scotch.

I brush past him on my mission, opening the cupboard and moving a couple bottles around. I reiterate, “I need alcohol.”

Out of the corner of my eye, I catch him hiding a smile before he says, “That bad?”

My face twitches as I ignore his line of questioning. It is more like a statement he wants me to clarify, even though he already knows the answer. Instead, I ask, “I have vodka left, don't I?” I stand on my tiptoes in hopes of spotting something in the very back. Nothing.

He waltzes over and looks with me, his chin almost touching my shoulder. “I think you polished that one off after last week's date.” His voice is low right next to my ear, very nearly causing a shiver.”
Lilly Avalon, Here All Along

“Nothing is determined by fate. We create our own fate.”
Jessica Sankiewicz, If Only We

“Often when you think you're at the end of something, you're at the beginning of something else.”
Fred Rogers

“Why did you do all this for me?' he asked. 'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.' 'You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing.”
E.B. White, Charlotte's Web

“We kiss again. This next kiss is the kind that breaks open the sky. It steals my breath and gives it back. It shows me that every other kiss I've had in my life has been wrong.”
Gayle Forman, Just One Day

“I knew one hundred little things about Noah Shaw but when he kissed me I couldn't remember my own name.”
Michelle Hodkin, The Evolution of Mara Dyer
