We did it!

Nanowrimo winners

Firstly, let me wish you all a belated Thanksgiving, we are always so very grateful for your visits, support and kind words! Secondly, when I had my daughter I wasn’t sure if I ever would get a chance to read a novel again let alone WRITE one!  That’s right my friends, Michelle and I actually completed and won our first Nanowrimo! We are both in shock and are giddy with accomplishment. My husband whom I abandoned this month asked me, ‘So, what are you going to do with all your free time now that the project is over?’ Without missing a beat I answered ‘Edit’. Michelle and I are thrilled with the start of this ‘novel’, we know that we have a lot of work ahead of us, but we have come this far and we don’t want to abandon this labor of love.

We would love to continue working on it, polishing this little lump of coal and hopefully it will turn into a brilliant diamond.

We would love to continue on this journey and see what exciting landscapes we can conquer.

We want to continue our explorations and see where we may land.

We want to spend more time with our characters, we have grown quite found of them and their adventures and it would be heart-rending if we didn’t have an opportunity to enjoy their company for a little while longer. We thought we would leave you with a tiny snippet of a beloved character:

Emeline Thames was a born charmer, not of snakes but of people. It is said that the doctor who delivered her was so startled at his urge to claim her for his own, that he gave up medicine and moved to Mexico the very next day.

We look forward to sharing more of our story in the near future!

P.S. We didn’t just abandon you for our novel writing endeavor but have been hard at work with client work, some new Foto Rx sets, a new Photoshop class and a super top secret project that we keep pinching ourselves that it is actually coming to fruition!

Miss Tristan B. is the co-creator of the world’s best + easiest product photography editing tool-Foto Rx | Shopkeeper’s Helper and one of the writer’s of this delightful blog. Her lofty goal here is to make this a creative resource repository and to inspire you to fall truly, madly, deeply in love with your life.

  1. Hello, Lovely!
    I’ve been meaning to pop in for over a month now–to read the snippet of your story. The intrigue!
    I love it already; here’s hoping I’ll get to read the rest in 2016. :)
    Best wishes for a bright & happy New Year,

    1. Thank you Amy, we are pretty excited to start edits, we have a laundry list of things we want to accomplish this year:) Happy New Year to you too!
