A monthlong Twitter celebration of works-in-progress
- I stumbled upon the #WIPjoy hashtag on Twitter at the beginning of June and decided I had to participate :-). The idea is that each day in June, you post a bit about the book you're currently writing, using the below as a guide...
- So of course I had to take part! Here's a compilation of my #WIPjoy tweets for my Swan Lake retelling, MIDNIGHT SWAN :-D

- — Mary Fan (@AstralColt)Mon, Jun 13 2016 14:09:54#WIPjoy D13: At the beginning, Kali is rather unlikable and morally gray. By the end, she's chosen what kind of person she wants to be
- — Mary Fan (@AstralColt)Wed, Jun 15 2016 14:04:24#WIPjoy 15: I've been obsessed with Swan Lake since I was 3, and I wanted to write a girl antihero. Ergo, black swan retelling. Also, MAGIC!
- — Mary Fan (@AstralColt)Mon, Jun 20 2016 01:07:24#WIPjoy 17: Kali makes me proud by the end by finally confronting her demons instead of running from them, even though it costs her
- — Mary Fan (@AstralColt)Mon, Jun 20 2016 01:11:59#WIPjoy 19 - No contagonist for 2 reasons: Kali's curse prevents her from telling anyone about it, and she's allergic to asking for help
