Family, friends, and curious visitors, welcome to Butterfly Mind! I am your host, Anica Grey, an aspiring professional Science-Fiction/Fantasy author, and I invite you to take a voyage with me as I pen my first novel called Timeless.
Timeless has been a long time in the making, born from a dream I had as a teenager, and evolving from two scenes I wrote about that dream. I have countless ideas for other novels and their sequels, but if I had to write just one book before I died, it would be Timeless.
I’ve wanted to give up so many times because of writer’s block, with some blocks lasting for months. However, as any writer will tell you, you must be a masochist to follow this dream. Who else would want a hobby or a career that is as vital to the soul as blood is to the body? Writer’s block is as sure to come as night, and in that torturous darkness, we swear that we shall never write again. But at sunrise, our stories are back to wake us, and shake us, until we finally get out of bed vowing once more to finish what we have started.
And now, I’m here to show you, and myself, what it will take to finish what I have started. I hope that my chronicles will inspire other writers or other people with dreams they are compelled to complete, and I hope that your posts inspire each other (and me!). Also, please check out my sister, Sydney Grey’s blog, to follow her own journey toward the bestseller list (her link is below). Syd is an aspiring professional young adult/fantasy author. Along with our sister, Emily, we are each other’s personal editors, critics, and muses.
I hear a sweet, Timeless song calling to me, and I find that it’s time to answer that call. Time to write.
