It’s November, and as I can’t grow a mustache (nor do I believe that mustache’s cure cancer anymore than ribbons do…but I digress), the only other game in town was to write a book — a la NaNoWriMo. Even joined an official writing posse headed by the sassy writer-girl Lisa Lister.
So my first book is underway! The heroine is ‘ella (with an apostrophe) — sort of like Cinderella as she does lead a charmed life…but sans the ashes and the daft prince. She’s a little witch that lives in a 5th floor walk up in Manhattan with her sidekick Dougie (a baby dragon, although the neighbors think he is a chihuahua), her rag doll Sprinkles, Tallulah (a fairy godmother-ish thing) and Poppet (the tarot card-reading hand puppet who lives in a crystal ball).
Yesterday was a long, but exciting, day of auditions for the main characters — despite the customary hiccoughs one would expect trying to herd baby dragons things went well and we now have a stunning and talented cast — can’t wait to see what they get up to!
