Exactly eleven days until I can read my book. I am literally counting down the hours. If there are any of you that aren't sure what I"m talking about, let me enlighten you. I finished the first draft of my novel on November 1st, and I am letting it rest a month before picking it back up. When December 1st hits, I am taking the day to read my entire novel, and am making a list of plot edits. It will be a long day, but I'm looking forward to it.
Hello! My name is Elysia. I've written since I was six years old, and I wrote my first novel when I was twelve. I'm from Maine, and now live in Charleston, South Carolina. As far as random happy things, I've ridden a Clydesdale on the beach in California, zip-lined and swum in caves in Mexico with bats and stalactites, and spoken to an audience of 1,500. I own an old typewriter and one of Pete Wentz from FOB's guitar picks. I love to travel, and have visited nearly every US state, Canada, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, the US and the British Virgin Islands, Mexico, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Curaçao, Bonaire, Aruba, Switzerland, and Barcelona. I also dream of one day watching the ball drop in New York City. I love to type (I know, I'm a weirdo), and can type approximately 140 WPM, nowhere close to Barbara Blackburn's 212 WPM record, ugh, the overachiever.
