Today is one of those days when every line I write is crap, every word I read—sleep inducing. A lot of it has to do with the flu, I suspect. Or at least I hope so. Otherwise, I probably should just quit right now. Not that I will. Somehow, I always end up coming back to my writing.
Today… today, however, is a day I needed a break.
Being self-critical might be an important part of writing and editing process, but it also has a flip side to it. Especially when one is under the influence of cold medicine. So, I closed my WIP and opened Photoshop.
I didn’t intend to work, but what started as an attempt to relax, turned into a scene I created because a few lines from Till Death and Beyond popped into my head and wouldn’t leave.
I walked through the night like a shadow,
I held no one close to my heart,
Until the day that you reached me,
Until you banished the dark.
Okay, so she is not exactly a shadow here, but I like the end result. Thought I’d share it.
That is how I see Amira. At least one side of her. There are many more, and maybe someday I’ll be able to illustrate them all. (Another is shown on the book cover.)
I write books I would love to read with fantasy worlds I would like to be a part of. Where anything is possible, but nothing more magical than love.
