I was going to write a book. Honestly, I don't even completely remember the original plan outside of that. I do know, I definitely was NOT going to write a love triangle. Definitely, freaking not. There's just no way to write those and make everyone happy. Ever. I was NOT going to try.
Wait. I do remember. I remember I was going to write about a guy who lost all of his memories. Forgot everything about his past, his life, his family. Everything. Except Her.
God, does it get any more romantic than that?!
That's what I was going to write.
The tragic story of a man who struggled to remember the love everyone wanted him to forget. Because, how dare he remember a girl...a girl who as all wrong...when he couldn't remember his parents. His carefully crafted future. His obligations. His history.
Then, as I sat there, typing away at this new story I found quite exciting, the words were just rolling.
One chapter. Done.
Second chapter...looking good.
Who the hell is Gunnar?
What the hell kind of a name is Gunnar?
Why the hell is this GUNNAR in my story??????
That's when I heard it. The taunting giggles. The quiet whispers. And then, the chirping sounds of mean little elves as they sang,
'Gunnar is here to stay - he won't go away.
And Gunnar's his name, no one cares if you think that it's lame.
Suck it up, butter cup and find your story's new angle,
because Gunnar is here to welcome you to the hell that is writing a love triangle'.
And that's when shit got really complicated...
So complicated in fact, I no longer wanted to write a book. I wanted to write two.
There you have it. Forget Me Not now has a buddy, Memories Made...out NOW and set to get you all confused and ready for FORGET ME NOT which will release on April 2nd (which also happens to be my birthday...which makes it sound like this is a coincidence, it's so not. I planned it. The whole thing. Well, not the date of my birth. That was my mother. Release date - that one - all me.)
Anyway - Memories Made - Free and exclusively available at the link below (I'd click it, but I already read it.)
