I need to let out some serious steam. Read at your own risk...this is going to be really opinionated... So, today I was just doing my normal Sunday routine of blog hopping when I ran across a new novel to come...ELIXIR by Hilary Duff--first I've seen of this one--and AHHHH!!! I'm so mad right now! Here's why: The title to one of my Works In Progress is called ELIXIR. Actually, it's the title of my favorite one, the one I hope to be the book that one day gets published. So this officially sucks!!! First of all, nobody wants their WIP book title to be used before they get the chance to use it. :( But what makes it worse that Hilary Duff is the author. I hate when actors or singers try to write fiction. (Is it really their talent that gets them published? Probably not. And are they really writing this on their own or do they have other writers and editors helping them out? Probably.)
In truth, most likely I will never get published. Under this title or any other. I know that; it's the simple fact of things. And Hell, I may never even finish my novel I've title ELIXIR. But still this bites and I guess I need to face the fact that Hilary Duff beat me to the punch. Ugh. See, now I'm rambling.
Has this ever happened to you?
Oh, and I am so not changing my title and I am refusing to ever read her novel.
