Grimes has many job titles on her resume—songwriter, musician, producer, engineer, music video producer, and if all goes to plan, she’ll be adding author to that list.  The multi-talented artist casually mentioned that she was writing a novel on Instagram, with a new snapshot photographed by HANA and styled by Purity Ring. In an even more interesting development, HANA is also the editor of her first novel—maybe.

Accordingly, the creation process is off to a bumpy start. “My editor informs me that my first chapter needs more showing and less telling,” she sassily mentioned. According to her sarcastic retorts, the novel will center around a fictional alternate universe, but there’s not even a solid plot yet. Therefore, we won’t be able to read the novel for a good while. “This is gonna be a dang endurance test if there ever was one and don't expect anything good for like 20-25 years,” she warned us. Usually, a wait that long would frustrate us to no end, but with Grimes’s track record, give her all the time she needs.

st

started my novel, but my editor, @hanatruly - informs me that my first chapter needs more showing and less telling. too bad the people don't want a novel comprised entirely of fake facts about a fake universe. re read some good intros to double check and i guess its best to start w a plot. this is gonna be a dang endurance test if there ever was one and don't expect anything good for like 20-25 years [email protected] styled by @purityring
