Day 1

Good morning everyone, I trust you are all doing well and being successful with your projects.

This morning I didnt write at all, instead, I spent 40 minutes in the train day-dreaming about other people reading my novels. It was quite a nice feeling to think others will be reading what I have written very soon, exciting but also unnerving as I am sure not everyone will like what I write but there is more than enough time to prepare for that.

Tonight it is writing night for me, time to map out the characters as I have completed chapters 1 and 2 and it is time to get to the nitty gritty with everyone and at this point everyone’s story is pretty much outlined so it is incorporating time for me. Amazing how I began with a completely different story line to the one I have now, whereas my first draft was completely chaotic and full of action, now I have a draft that is mildly chaotic with a little more reality.

I am really hoping that the message I am trying to put across will be very clear by the end of the novel!

How are you all doing? Ready for another day?

Word and more words

Hello everyone, I trust you are all doing well!

This week has been a strange one so far, every morning I wake up thinking I’m a day ahead, this morning I thought it was Thursday, tomorrow morning I will extremely disappointed when I realise its not Friday!! Ha!

I am so proud of myself, I have been writing non-stop for a whole week now and getting that Evernote app for my ipad needs to get some credit for it, it really has made a huge difference to be using my commute to write as it has been immensely productive!

Needless to say, my novel is going ok, the beginning is being really full of surprises, even for me. This is because the story is completely different than what I make it out to be in the beginning, I am excited to put the twist in soon!! 🙂

How are your projects coming along? I have to say, it is great to be back here with all of you!! 🙂

It Begins

Good morning everyone!! I trust you are all doing well.

Yesterday we discussed writing resources for Ipad and there were some really good suggestions here, in the end I decided to try out Evernote and have to say, it does the job really well!!

So due to that, my writing hours have gone up by twice as much as I write on a normal day. Great news!! Bad news is that I’ve restarted my novel, well, not really bad news as I now feel I have a lot more than I did before. I have also decided that it is going to be a short story rather than a really long one, maybe the next one is longer.

The story is going well, I am actually basing it on some personal experiences I’ve had not so long ago and it has been so inspirational. Right now I am so excited to take the story to a different level, the second chapter should be epic!

How are your projects going? Any exciting news to share with us? 🙂

Writing resources

Hello everyone!!

How was the weekend? I hope you are all well today, the start of the week has been a rather difficult one so far, why are monday’s so exhausting? Ha!

Anyway, today I want to talk about resources for us authors and potential authors like me. I have been thinking about writing on my commute to work as there is enough time to write a whole chapter, time that I feel goes to waste as most of the time I dont do anything at all other than stare out into the open and get lost in thought.

So my question to all of you is, I have an ipad and would like to make the most of it, I have looked at various apps for writing but feel it would be a lot easier to get opinions before I go an purchase anything. So, has any of you used any writing apps? If so, which one would you recommend?

I hope you all have a great day and I look forward to seeing what you all say!

Story

Hello everyone, I trust you are all well and enjoying your start to this Friday, cant believe it is finally Friday!!

The writing restarts tonight and will most likely carry on into Sunday, I am going to write until my fingers are sore (or at least until I get writer’s block! haha).

I used to think that time was a writer’s worst enemy but I have proved myself wrong on this, motivation is a writer’s worst enemy as without it there will simply be no words flowing even if the inspiration is there!

So today, I am making my blog about motivational tips, what do you all do to remain motivated and on the ball? It would be interesting to see how everyone’s methods are different.

Have a great day everyone!! 🙂

The wonders

Good morning everyone!

How are you all doing today? Thank goodness it is nearly Friday, this week has been a rather long one meaning I have done no writing or anything other than work, how sad am I? haha

One question I have for all of you, has any of you experienced the odd occasion when you write a novel and are near the end of it when you watch a movie or read an article and find way too many similarities between your novel and the movie/article even though you know you got the ideas from your head and not from another source?

It would be good to know as I think I’ve fallen prey to that and am now considering what path to take, the wonders of writing a novel, either you do it quick and your idea remains safe or someone else will think of it but use it wrong! Ha!

Have a great day everyone!! 🙂

Novelling

Hello everyone, I trust you are all doing well and getting on fine with your projects!

Before you say anything, yes, I have invented a new word, novelling!! It has to be a word because that is what we (writers) tend to do quite a lot! Novelling and more novelling!! Ha!

Today I am wondering where my new novel is going, not thinking of the name yet and actually trying to not even let it cross my mind just yet. I believe I have chosen something really great to write about but also think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew, it is a very intricate story with various characters and I am really hoping I dont turn it into desperate housewives!! ha!

One thing I have to say is, scientists should invent the time machine soon or at least something that will slow time down, with so much to do there isnt ever enough time and writing a book isnt exactly just slapping words on a piece of paper and off you go!

Before I go, I would like to thank you all for yesterday’s warm welcome, it really makes me happy to see that even though I have been gone for months you guys still come and say hi!! 🙂

Return

Hello hello fellow bloggers, how have you all been during this long time?

My degree has kept me miles away from here but now I am back and ready to find out what is new with all of you!

The low down of my activity is, put my novel on hold for now as there are too many things I need to complete before I can even think of focusing on my novel. Secondly, I’ve decided it will be best to begin writing a new one while I complete the first, found it will keep the ideas flowing and fight writers block, the new novel has begun but I am not sure yet what to call it or where it will be going. It is a “make-it-up-as-i-go-along” type of thing, for now at least.

So, enough about me, what have you all been up to? Any exciting news to share? 🙂

Pushing Ahead

Hi everyone, how are you all doing today? Only one more day to go and the weekend is here!!

Yesterday something quite funny happened and I hope I am not the only one who this has happened to!! Haha!! Anyway, I sat down in the evening to write for a while, by the time I was ready to go to bed I realised I had only finished one sentence!! How weird!!

It must be a case of writer’s paralysis!! haha

Anyway, today will be more successful, I will be writing shortly after studying and then later at night again 🙂 It should be fun.

Here is a little something from my photography archive for all of you!! Enjoy and have a great day everyone!! 🙂
