Fairy Prince Blogfest and WIP IT GOOD

For this blog fest, we are asked to tell readers who our favorite Disney prince is. For me, this is a simple one- I love the Prince from Snow White! I only wish he had an official name, but he's too mysterious for that. I love him because he is handsome, very personable, and has an AMAZING singing voice! I especially love the very last scene of the movie where he and Snow White ride off together into the sunset. I wish they could make a sequel so we could see what happens to all of the characters- especially the dwarves and the queen! 

I'm not sure if a speech counts as a WIP, but it's all I have. I am in the middle of finals prep right now and things are getting crazy!

WIP Title: Cancer 101

Word Count (projected/actual so far): 471

Genre: Nonfiction

How long have you been working on it?: About 7 Days 

Elevator Pitch (if you came across an agent in an elevator ride, what couple of lines would you use to summarize your book): My encounter with cancer as a teenager

Brief Synopsis (250 words or less): I was diagnosed with a really rare type of cancer when I was 15. I had three surgeries, and this is my story. I am proud to be cancer free! This piece discusses my experiences through my own eyes, including the events leading up to surgery. I focus quite a bit on my emotions during that period of time. 
Are you looking for a Critique Partner?: yes 

Are you looking for a Beta Reader?: What is that???


  1. Sounds like a very personal piece of work and you're very brave to be out there sharing it.

    A beta reader is someone who reads your finished draft and gives feedback on the story as a whole.

  2. This is a brave idea and it could be a huge resource for other teenagers who will tragically suffer as you did. Well done!

  3. It most assuredly is a WIP...and a great one to boot!! Good luck with it! :)

  4. Hi Morgan .. it's not the easiest time to deal with "a major" like cancer when you're in your teen years .. so I hear the part about your emotions speaking.

    I'm sure you'll find the right mentor to help you through the edit process - someone who will definitely relate to your story ...

    Telling it - will help many others .. I'd love to read it, as I'm sure it will be very thought provoking and very good .. cheers Hilary

  5. Wow! I bet it's great! Something def worth sharing with the world. Best of luck with it!! :)

  6. Sounds like a very personal and emotional piece. I appreciate your courage in sharing your experience.

  7. Sounds like a very hard struggle for a teenager to go through. Congrats on being cancer free!

  8. It's going to be a speech? That's a very brave thing to do on any topic, let alone something like this. All the best with it!

  9. Good luck with your speech, hope it goes well, a really brave topic x

  12. Good on you for getting your story down on "paper", so to speak. A lot of people will be able to relate to what they read there.
