watching, reading, and writing stories

A World of Novels

on April 17, 2013

Hello there, I’m Lydia and this is my attempt at a blog. I’m hoping my sister helps me out a bit. You see, we both really enjoy novels, and not just reading them, but writing them as well.

I think it was about two years ago when Alicia first started writing novels. She did the NaNoWriMo challenge and actually wrote 50,000 words in one month.

I have a different story… I’ve always liked reading novels. I could finish one in a day if I had the free time for it. But one day, back in high school, I started working on my own story. I didn’t know if I could ever finish it. But I wanted to try. So fast forward a few years and you’ve got my younger sister finishing her first novel. She’s written more in a month than I have in 5 years. So I got my butt in gear and started writing, editing, planning… basically I was inspired to actually finish.

And I’m happy to say I’m getting pretty close to being done. I still have some tweaking to do, and some illustrations to make, but the day of publishing is fast approaching me.

So anyway, I went to a conference about writing and one of the big things I took away was having a blog… So here I am.

I’m hoping to review books, spark conversation, and well have some fun. And I hope you are too!

So if you feel like participating please leave a comment, tell me what your favorite novel is, or what the first one you read was.

    I love novels that develop characters in a way that is unforgettable– they seem to weave in an out of your own life… you see the world through their eyes with a different perspective than you normally would have. I don’t think I could possibly have a “favorite” novel, although ” To Kill a Mockingbird” is high on the list! I hope someday to have a collection of “NovelSisters” 1st editions on my shelf!
