Who’s Molly Greye?

I’m Molly Greye (pronounced like the color grey)

If you are reading this, it must mean that you also like to read and write as much as I do. I’m flattered to have your attention and I hope you enjoy my little musings.

I’m a full-time college student. I love to travel and document my adventures. I love photography and drawing. I love my cat who acts like a dog and is very clingy. I absolutely love listening to music. It is the one thing that helps keep the creativeness flowing when I write.

I’m working on a trilogy I started years ago. I’m currently editing my first book titled, “Of Love and Lies,” which I haven’t made it official ย (please don’t grow too attached!!) I promise to come up with a good title that doesn’t sound like a stereotypical love novel that Nora Roberts would write. My dream is to publish this world I have developed and fallen in love with.

I encourage everyone to give some critique on my samples from my book. I could use some feedback on it and I would greatly appreciate it.

Other than that, stay awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I started back in 2010 and had WAY too much free-time on my hands. Editing is worst part because it is taking me forever to makeup my mind of whether I like a scene or not. Thank you for stopping by my page and I hope you enjoyed your wine time ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Originally, it was going to be one book but I reached 300 plus pages, I realized that I was nowhere near done with the story. Right now, I’m pausing on writing until I finish studying the architecture of the era I’m basing the story on and adding a few styles of my own. I probably won’t it all finished for several more years.

      It doesn’t help that new book ideas pop either so I know exactly how you feel ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Yup. I often wish for assistance or a team I can go to with ideas. Otherwise, I come up with more “seeds” than I can flush out on “paper”. I can start one and feel I am neglecting another. It’s even harder to juggle sometimes. Meh. What are we going to do?:P

        I’ve been shooting for 300-400 pages each book regardless of genre. Some of these newer books seem to be filling lots of pages with big print to sell more paper. Meanwhile, I feel like I have to shrink everything down to save space:P I’m still striving to complete the great novel. I got halfway through one or two books before I stopped to rethink the whole thing. Again, meh.

        I am terrible at research:P But, I have picked up a few details here and there for a few projects. I think I’d doze off researching architecture. But, I did look into Quonset huts and house styles briefly once.

      • Don’t get me started on books with large font. I think it’s pathetic on both the author and the publishing company to have to resort to that because they want to make some more bucks.

        As for the research, I would also like a team who can help with the architecture part, another for editing, and another to get me coffee and breakfast sandwiches.

        Am I asking too much? ๐Ÿ˜›

      • It may seem pathetic on the publisher’s part, but I do approve the big print for readers who struggle with their eyesight and younger readers. It’s no different from kids books. But, sometimes it just irks me when I feel like they are trying to print more pages for a bigger book on the shelf. I can’t quite explain or be certain of what I am saying…:P…but that about sums it up. I flip on this topic. If it makes the book more expensive…and it probably will…then it may not be worth it.

        I could be big on any editing team. I am very particular about pinpointing mistakes:P I rephrase sentences and mess around with punctuation. I am fairly keen on spelling (I catch most typos). I suspect my only weak areas might be varying sentence types and paragraph structure. But, I will surely clean up the text so it reads well and won’t make the author look absent-minded.

        Coffee and sandwiches? Now, you went too far:P Now, you’re a writing diva. No one needs to wait on you hand and foot. You should settle for a good brainstorming group. One or two doers/writers, one spare idea/counter-point person/editor and one or two research fanatic(s)/bookworm(s). Those would be the bare bone essentials if not just one good co-writer.

        Get your own damn sandwiches and coffee:P hehe

      • Lol, it was worth a shot for that team ๐Ÿ˜‰

        But no, I don’t need a writing team that is equivalent to Mariah Carey’s hair and makeup team. If anything, I plan to meet with an editor. I can’t wait to get my research done and out of the way. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Now, you bring up a good one. Yea, I need calla lilies and red roses and a box of quality chocolates–no cheap stuff with lemon and peach cremes–on my dressing…er, writing table:)

        I could be your editor:D You can be my research gal.
