What is the date you began writing this piece of fiction and the date when you completely finished the piece of fiction? I began writing this in 2008 and completed it in 2017.
Where did you do most of your writing for this fiction work? And please describe in detail. And can you please include a photo? I was in grad school at the time so I did a lot of writing in classrooms and libraries up until graduation in 2011. I kept writing whenever, wherever until early 2017 when I decided to change the storyline completely. I mostly wrote the new story (that I ended up publishing) in cafes with members of my writing group. I don't have a picture. We frequented Khaldi's, Barnes and Noble, and Bread Co.

This is an emotional excerpt for me because this is the first story where I wrote the beginning scene first. Since inception in 2008, the opening scene has never changed. It has gone through revisions and multiple drafts for sure, but the essence of the scene has not changed.
It is my favorite part of the
entire book and the part I have the most history with. Originally, this book was something else entirely. I changed scene after scene multiple times. I changed the storyline multiple times. In every draft through the final draft, Selene (not her original first name ten years ago) has always woken up in the morgue. Only what she has done after waking up in the morgue and the story thereafter has changed.
