It Starts

Hello! To all of you who don't know me, I'm Cortney Pearson. I'm currently working on a kick-butt YA paranormal romance novel guessed it, The Mind Writers.

The Scoop:

It's about a hit man who sold his soul to a demon for the ability to control minds by touching people. He's sent after an unsuspecting, sixteen year old girl, but when he falls for her instead, the demon exacts ownership over him. Now the girl has three days to figure out how to save his soul without losing hers in the process. Who wouldn't love that? Hit man, demon, love story...

So this blog is going to be about my mind writing adventures. Not only with that particular novel, but also with short stories and other novels that I also have in the works. It's also going to concern the writing tidbits and interesting snatches I learn along the way! Because I'm reading TONS of books on how to become a better writer. It's a craft, really, not something just anybody can pick up and just do. I play the clarinet, and I practiced for hours and hours and hours until I perfected that skill. Writing is no different, that's why you always hear the phrase "Write every day." Because it's true!

What is a Mind Writer, you ask? Instead of reading minds by being able to hear what people around them are thinking, my hit men--the Mind Writers--can touch anyone and write over his or her existing thoughts, making that person think whatever a mind writer wants him or her to. Pretty amazing actually. In a perfect world we'd all have this ability--or maybe one or two of us :) because if everyone had it then it wouldn't be cool anymore.

Anyway, I'm hoping to have my novel completely ready in the next few months. I've rewritten once already, trying to perfect it, so many times and I'm thinking third time's a charm. It's going to happen, peeps!

Make today amazing!
