I got the idea for "Watching Over Me" when I entered a contest. The requirement was to write a short story under 5000 words that showed a strong female character dealing with something paranormal, demonic, etc. As I wrote out my story, I found that I couldn't limit it to 5000 words and my characters had a lot more to say.
So that's what I'm doing. I'm expanding my one-shot into a novel, and then I'm going to attempt to get it published. I hope you'll follow me on the ups and downs of writing a first book as well as what I'm sure will be a lengthy process in trying to get it published. Some of you may have read my one-shot of WOM. I've taken it off the Internet at this point, but I appreciate all the feedback that you gave me. I'm going to make a lot of changes to my story. I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.
If you have any advice, general discussion, or questions, please feel free to contact me or comment.
