Not dead, don't worry. Just a horrible blogger!
Quite a while ago (I'm talking July, here), I FINISHED the first draft of my novel, Saved Alone! *happy dance* And it only took a few years (please note heavy sarcasm). I'm super excited to announce that I'm in the process of editing it, with hopes of publishing it soon. Stay tuned!
Here's a little snippet:
My breathing became more erratic as I desperately tried to get their attention. My raspy, almost non-existent voice sounded like one who had been smoking multiple cigars each day for years.
“Help! Please help me!” I cried. But it didn’t carry.
God, let them know I’m here. Let them find me.
I held fast to the wooden plank with my left arm, and waved the other wildly in the air.
“Here, here!” I screeched.
The light began to move farther and farther to my right. My last hope of survival was disappearing and there wasn’t a single thing I could do.
Why aren’t you helping me?
Before I could make another plea-or rather, accusation-to God, my left hand slipped. A huge splash later, I was immersed in the cuttingly cold Atlantic Ocean. Darkness surrounded. The surface grew farther and farther away, and I began to sink.
