It's time for another edition of Book in Progress! If you missed the last one I really recommend you go check it out, but I'll give you the rundown. I started a new project (WIP "Spring"), and since have been struggling greatly. I have been going through some tough burnout, in part because of all … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Nine: When Plot Holes turn into Canyons
I debated on calling this "Book in Progress vol.2" because I STARTED A NEW BOOK! And. I. Hate. It. Not the story itself, exactly. More like I hate the process of writing the first draft. You know, I used to think my least favorite part of the writing process was outlining. Yeah, no. I HATE … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Eight: New beginnings. New Stress
And this is why I don't tell many people I'm a creative writer. I had a teacher back in my freshman year of high school, and during an assignment, I mentioned that I wanted to be an author. I don't tell most people this because I know most of them won't take me seriously. I … Continue reading The time I almost gave up on Writing
Hello readers! This is our last book in progress before NaNoWriMo begins. For those of you who don't know, I have been working on a sci-fi thriller for the past year (more about that in a second), this nano I plan on writing a middle-grade fantasy that I am really excited for. I plan on … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Seven: The last Update before NaNoWriMo
I'm having a crisis. A mental break down or something. Nothing makes sense anymore. What is my book? What is a book? What is life? What am I doing here? I have no idea. I've re-read this project so many times, it doesn't make sense anymore. I feel like I'm in a time warp. My … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Six: Time Warp
To celebrate finishing my first draft, I want to share a little bit about my book with you! And by a little bit, I mean the bare minimum that you probably already know. Sorry, I've had a lifetime fear of being plagiarized, but that's another story for another time. Like any good project, it needs … Continue reading Book in progress: part five — A little bit about my book & dealing with doubt
You know the writers who will finish their book with almost 200,000 words? Yeah, that's not me. Currently my novel is a novella. But, hey, I finished!!! This is the first time I've ever finished a project of this size! I started my second draft June 13. There's something so special about being able to … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Four: I think you are know what this is about
Hey there! Long time no read! I had my posting schedule for May all worked out, and then I decided the Adventures of a Nerd needed a makeover. Inside and out. So if you notice that a post or two is missing and a few things are rearranged, that would be why. I am also … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Three: Clock’s ticking, dude.
Hello and welcome back to the book in progress series! This is the series where I talk about what I'm writing, the challenges I'm facing, how I plan to overcome them, but overall, I complain about everything that's going wrong. The reason I have been MIA for the past month is because I have been … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Two: Too Much Inspiration?
Hello, readers and writers, and welcome to the new and improved 'Book in Progress'! Last year I had started this series but it was really unstructured and random, but that was at a time where I was struggling to get back into writing after a short break (btw, never do that. It is almost impossible … Continue reading Book in Progress – Part One: A new-ish start.
