Along Came Neil (Wings From Ashes:3)

by Linda Nelson

There’s a new boy in town, and Ashley wants him badly. Will Karla steal her man too?

Karla Centon no longer is the newest student at Brantwood High. Since moving to Brantwood six months ago, her life had been going nowhere in the right direction until she meets Neil Allard, a handsome cheerful boy who wrestles his way into her heart. Karla takes an instant disliking to Neil because she thinks he’s not her type. However, what is her type? Is it tall skinny guys who wear baseball hats backwards and who happen to be bad boys or warm loveable funny guys who are more than just nice occasionally, like Neil?
Ashley likes Neil too, and her friend Maggie tries her best to keep Karla away from him. However, when Ashley starts making a big deal out of his wandering eyes, Neil doesn’t like it. Karla is his friend, which is more than either of the other two girls can say. Karla begins to notice that Neil is actually rather incredible at heart. He may not have the body type she is attracted to, but his good-hearted nature attracts her instead. Finally, when Ashley throws one last tantrum at the dance over Karla, Neil has had enough. Who will really win Neil’s heart?

What a Weekend!

I went to my very first NECRWA Conference. We had a fantastic lineup of speakers and workshops. Let me name a few of our speakers. Bella Andrea was our keynote speaker, she was amazing. I attended the workshop, Before you hit Send. It was about self-editing and given by Angela James. I know what I will be doing over the next few months. Our Saturday Speaker was Cara McKenna, she was fabulous. I also attended the 2 hour workshop given by Madeline Hunter which I do believe has helped me break past my writers block.

I know I walked away with a lot this weekend, besides books. By the end of the day, on Saturday, I was exhausted. The conference was well worth the time, effort, travel, and the money.

Would I do it again?


In fact, I am going to try and make it my annual event to attend.

The Jersey Conference is coming up in October. I don’t know if I would be able to make that one, but I am sure going to try. It will all come down to having funds available for another event. I may have to work tons of overtime at my day job, which would be nice. I will have to take a wait and see approach with that event.

Not too much to report this week for word count, except that I am making this post. I think I know where my Wattpad story is going to go. I did a little plot outline today, thanks to some sparks that shot into my head during Madeline Hunter’s Workshop. She talked about using strong conflict in your story to get the book to write itself.

Next weekend I will be attending the Deb Dixon Workshop given by my own NHRWA Chapter. That following Monday I will be doing a little experiment by trying to write a book in a day.

I wonder if it can be done.

    It sounds like that conference was wonderful. I love attending writer conferences. I learn so much and get re-energized for my stories. Enjoy the Deb Dixon workshop! Have a marvelous round, and best wishes with the book in a day (wow!).

  2. Thanks Julie :)

  3. conferences and workshops are fun exciting and soooo exhausting but the buzz in ones mind afterwards is amazing – so glad you enjoyed it:)

    • They are very exhausting and well worth it. I have never had so much fun doing what I love to do.
