About eight years ago, I had the idea for the book above, Alizarin Crimson. So I wrote it, or I should say a started writing it. It took me exactly 36 pages to realize I had no idea how to write a book. The story I wanted to tell was too complex, the characters were too complicated, the plot too tangled. I knew if I wrote that story then, I would be disappointed in the final result. So I put it aside for a little while, and selected a project that I thought would teach me how to write. I wrote an 85,000 word traditional YA fantasy that was very similar to the works of Robin McKinley, my first love. I selected a basic plot- princess has to reclaim her kingdom from an evil dictator- and added magic. This was my “learning how to write” project. Even though I have no plans to pursue publication of it, it did teach me how to write and therefore was a worth while endeavor.
