I can’t believe that it has been almost a year since my last writing update. I would like to say that I have progressed a lot in my project but that would be a lie. I will say that there was a point where I wanted to just quit and that is why this update is so late. Long story short I decided that I shouldn’t quit and that I should give this project my all. I filmed a video called Writing Project: I don’t know what I am Doing where I go into detail about why I wanted to quit. Continue reading “Writing Update # 4: Changing things and NaNoWriMo”
I just wanted to take the time to come on here and say that I have decided to get back to writing. Last year I did a few blog post about how I wanted to write a book and about starting that process. After a while, I stopped working on it and I basically wanted to Continue reading “Back to Writing”
Today’s post is an update on the book I have been working on. I am going to be covering naming my characters as well as figuring out what their occupation will be. That being said let’s just get right into it.
One thing that has taken me so long to do is name these characters. I have had their first names for a few weeks now but in the last few days, I have had to figure out their last names. Oh, boy was that a process! For my characters I wanted their first and last names to flow well together. Also, I wanted them not to have names that are used a lot, I wanted them to be at least a tiny bit original. Now, did I accomplish that goal? I have no idea but I am happy with the names that they ended up with…well at least for now. I have no clue if they will end up changing once I get to the actual writing of this book and truly discover who these characters are. Honestly, I am okay with that as long as I feel that by the end that I have found the best name for them I will be happy. I am so excited to actually get started on the book and see where these characters take me. Continue reading “Writing Update #3: Naming Characters and Occupation”
Okay, I know what you are thinking. My last writing update was in May! Yes you read that right May. Well, I am fixing that now because I am back to writing…well outlining. I have recently been re-inspaired on this book that I thought about writing months ago and I think that I am starting to really know what the story is going to be about and I am so excited about it. So what have I been working on? Well, I started to outline again and I think it is going really well. I also created a binder so I can keep all my outline stuff in there. You know keep things organized. I want to make a cover for the binder but I don’t know how I want to make it. Continue reading “Writing Update #2”
This post is going to be on what I have been experiencing so far in the planning stages of my book. I will first talk about what I have so far without giving too much detail. Then I will go into what I hope to get done next. Now let’s get into it. Continue reading “Writing Update #1”
So, about a week or so ago I was watching a reality show and thought, “ This would be an interesting book, I would read it.” Then my wheels starting turning and I started to come up with ideas for the plot of the book. Now I am not going to tell you what the show is because it might give things away. I typed out a plot of what I wanted the story to be. I had some of my friends read the plot and they both thought it sounded interesting. Let me tell you I made sure they weren’t just saying that because they are my friends. They encouraged me to try and write this book. So that is exactly what I am going to do. Continue reading “Writing a Book?”
