A Beautiful Novel Aesthetic!

So the wonderful Aneeqah N on Twitter put out a call for authors to respond to. She said:

It’s been a tough week in this community, and as a writer, that can really made it hard to stay motivated on your work.

so I want to do something: reply to this tweet w/a description of your WIP/book + some keywords and I’ll make you an aesthetic!

I, being the visual geek I am, told Aneeqah of my WIP (five, queer, UK teens band together against the supervillain who overtook their city) and she came up with THIS THING OF BEAUTY

aesthetic. london street corner, 5 teens standing against the light, hack screen, nerdy boy looking up, quote 'and the only solution was to stand and fight', pile of books, girl jumps of building, wires, punk rock girl.

ISN’T IT AMAZING?

I love the quote in the middle and the pictures chosen are A+ like, really. It looks like stills of some soon to be released YA thriller or something.

If you want to check out her other beautiful aesthetics and/or RT mine, the link is HERE!

I’ll just be fanning myself over here.

#WIPjoy – Day 1

You may not have heard of the hashtag #WIPjoy, but it’s a month-long love fest for authors’ Works In Progress, of which there are undoubtedly many and occasionally even more than one per person.

I’ve decided to give it a try this month, simply to remind myself there are good points about my WIP and – perhaps – get to know it a bit better!

DAY ONE

My WIP as described on Twitter – YA fantasy, based on Bavaria, British Isles & ancient wars. Castles, magic and love, oh my!

To elaborate, it’s based around three POV’s (which I’ve only done once before) and goes back to my third person fantasy roots. It feels so good to get back into the swing of this, and I feel like the entire story has ignited something I can’t quite fend away.

More to the point, I don’t want to!

To quote dear Belle –

“Far off places, daring sword fights, magic spells, a prince in disguise!”

*pets WIP* I like you.
