“The Bridge” – by…Me! (Chapter 1)

That’s right, everyone! I’m starting to post some chapters from my own writing, on a kind of corner of my editing and writing website, Shiny Ideas.

I’m starting with sample chapters from my YA novel, The Bridge, which I’m currently editing to try to resubmit to some agents or publishers. But in the meantime, I’m posting the chapters for all and sundry to read if they want. (I don’t believe “The Bridge” will be its final title, but it’s the best I can come up with for now.)

There will be other pieces of writing posted in that corner, including an ongoing soap opera I’ve been working on for a long time, for my own entertainment and just to see if I could do it. 🙂

Meanwhile, this novel is about a rather mousy, bookish high school girl with a very active imagination, who escapes from her boring math class by creating a fantasy world in the back of her notebook. But she finds that imagined fantasy world taking on a depth she never expected in her wildest dreams.

So without further ado, here is The Bridge – Chapter 1.

        Bwa! You may be reading it in the only form it’s ever going to be able to take, dahling. But I’m so glad you enjoyed it. More to come!

      Phyl, great start to the novel. Good luck resubmitting it. I think it should do well once published.
