Book in Progress — Part Eight: New beginnings. New Stress

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

The time I almost gave up on Writing

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

Book in Progress — Part Six: Time Warp

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

40 Things your character can do when in Pain

Let me guess, you're writing a fight scene and your character seems to be able to brush off every punch without so much as an "Ouch." Hey, don't worry! We've all been there. Being a writer is hard. Especially when you characters are feeling something that you can't relate to. I was struggling just like … Continue reading 40 Things your character can do when in Pain

Book in progress: part five — A little bit about my book & dealing with doubt

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
