Guess what? I’m finally using my Wattpad account!
I’ve been working on a novella specifically for Wattpad for a few months now. It’s been through a lot including three name changes. Some of you might know the story as “Special,” others as “The Librarian,” and now it’s finally “The Scribe.”
This novella originally started as a special Short Story Sunday. It ran through the month of August, each part being posted on Sunday and ending with a poll. My readers chose what they wanted to happen next in the story. You can read the original story HERE. Through that, it sparked some new ideas for me.
I decided to expand upon the story in November during NaNoWriMo. The story ended around 50,000 words, which was fine for me because I wanted it to be a novella.
After editing for a long time (and I mean a long time), I got the story to around 17-18,000 words. It’s a fantasy with Greek mythology roots. Here’s what it’s about:
“When one Scribe becomes three, three Fates will become one.”
Sadie Powers is an average college student. She has a couple of good friends and a boyfriend and has straight As in her classes. So, why does her science professor want to see her in the library late one night?
Professor Hobbs, well known by the students as “Crazy Hobbs,” gives Sadie a notebook. He claims it contains special paper. He wants her to keep it a secret and to use it wisely. He knows she will do great things with the notebook.
Believing him to be crazy, Sadie heeds his words with a grain of salt. But when he shows her the Room of Destiny hidden within the school’s library, Professor Hobbs explains Sadie is the next Scribe. She is to keep order and balance within the seven billion people residing on Earth.
The Scribe’s job is supposed to fix any unjust or premature deaths using her notebook and powerful quill. How is she supposed to tempt with Fate? Because, as far as Sadie knows, magic doesn’t exist… Does it?
So, I’m proud to say The Scribe is finally published on Wattpad! I’ll be uploading one chapter every day until the story ends. I do hope you give it a read. I’ve worked hard and I’m happy with how it turned out. I hope you are too.
