HOBBY NOVEL : Using IG polls to Write a Story

Hello Sweeties.

I pray everyone is feeling great. I am currently sick, cold symptoms, and sitting up in bed, too excited not to share this with you right now!

I started out this year saying that I wanted LESS NETFLIX and MORE WRITING AND READING. I was sitting here and looking at this new journal my husband bought me. Im a woman who needs a journal for every thing I do and so as I stared at it, wondering what to use it for, I started thinking about the desire to write a fictional story.

I write but I don’t consider myself a writer. My podcast co-host, Jameson is probably wanting to punch me right now. lol. We have a whole episode on: whatever you do is what you are. You write, well then you’re a writer. Anyways, I have this story inside my head and have had it there for a year or more. Totally fiction but based on some real life feelings and tweaked events. lol. Is that a thing?

This year for me is all about WILDFLOWERS AND ADVENTURE. Taking risks and being brave. So why not just go for it?

I thought it would be fun to use the power of INSTAGRAM and have my friends on there help the story along. So, in my IG stories, you’ll be able to vote as I write. (Characters names…their choices…clothes…events…) I hope this is going to be fun and something people get into. When Im done (goal of 50,000 words) I’ll share it…maybe…ahh. lol.

 I came up with #HobbyNovel and if you decide to do it too. PLEASE let me know.

Less Netflix and more writing…reading…growing. 😉
