And now, for a little something fun, we have ten random facts concerning Dandelion Dust. Hopefully these are enjoyable. xD
1. It's my fastest written book to date, finishing at 25 days.
2. At the time, it was the only thing over 1,500 words that I'd written in first-person present tense.
3. Katydid, Ryder's dog, was not in the first draft.
4. What is now chapter nine was not in the first draft. I had so much to add between chapters eight and nine while editing, I ended up with an entirely new chapter.
5. The idea for the book came from a dream I had on Christmas night, 2016.
6. In my notes and plans for the book, Ryder was supposed to chew his nails (and Char was supposed to find it gross), but that never actually found its way into the book.
7. While writing the first draft, there was not a day I didn't write at least 1,000 words. (A new record for myself.)
8. The title came to me quite out of the blue on December 29th, my fourth day into writing.
9. I wrote nearly half of the first draft with my iPad's on-screen keyboard, before my Bluetooth keyboard arrived in the mail.
10. One of my friends has been convinced since the beginning that the book's sister-character is based off her...which may or may not be sorta slightly true.
11. Mr. and Mrs. Traven did not have first names in the first draft.
12. I have tried many times to set my friend up with Drew from DD...but they're both fighting me on it.
13. I never struggled much with anything on the writing end of this story. It's like God just placed the story in my heart, and that was it. I didn't have to work and struggle over anything; the words just flowed.
