Plugging Along, Over Half Way There with Crossing Cassie

I have never been so motivated to finish a project like this one.

For years I have enjoyed writing fanfiction, extending my love for a show by writing the characters the way I see them. I even did some alternate universe stories, with the TV characters, molding them a bit. But they were always someone elses character.

Creating and fleshing out Cassie Cross, my heroine, has been a true journey for me. Getting in her head, speaking through her voice, giving her that voice. has been a freeing experience.

I want to create this world where ambiguity plagues the reader. Making them wonder if they are rooting for the right person.

Cassie Cross is a young woman looking for something. She isn’t sure what she wants and where she belongs. Cassie is a victim of missed opportunities and chances. I live my life on the belief of no regrets. Cassie Cross has regrets and is afraid to step out of her comfort zone, to take a chance.

I am also enjoying fleshing out Dr. Samuel Thomas. He is a broken figure, suffering from a tragic loss. His driven blinded goal causes him to fail to see what is right in front of him. He is also suffering from regret, a regret that will haunt him.

I have asked a few select people I trust to look over the first few chapters. I am getting really excited about this.

I am not concerned about making money or creating a big splash. For me, its about creating and completing something. About achieving a goal, about not having any regrets.

I plan to self-publish and I hope this story will touch people and make them question what is right, what is wrong and that sometimes we live in the grey area of life.
