Getting to my novel.

Not much is going on. I’m working on bringing in the three first chapters to good terms. I guess I could say that by finishing these three chapters I’d be closing in on the first arc of my novel, the introduction. Its a bit frustrating having to go back. I would like to keep moving forward but I find myself going back and re-writing dialogue or events. Its natural. The more you write the more you learn who your characters really are. For example, I had a character who I’m beginning to learn is better fit with fewer dialogue. Simple, “yea,” and “ah huhs,” suite him better. As for other events. Nothing major has changed. Just simple gestures and reactions. I’m hoping that after I finish polishing up the first three chapter I’ll hav a better understanding in where my protagonist is going.

& remember, keep writing!

Getting to my novel 7/2/18

Getting to my novel.

I’m starting the third chapter. All is good and so far no issues but I would like to wonder off and talk about writing a novel for a bit. Since I published my first novel. I’ve had a lot of emails, comments, messages, and texts of people suggesting me to read their manuscript and to return some feedback. I scan the manuscript and 99.9% the manuscript is incomplete. If I’m lucky, the piece of literature is half way done but most than likely, is just has a couple of chapters. Sometimes the beginning chapters. Other times, a random paragraph from their story. With so little given, I can’t make an honest opinion and the only feedback I can give is, finish your manuscript! Writers have no idea how much a chapter can and will change by the time they get to their final version and then re-writing and final edits. So before you send anyone a manuscript. Make sure you finish your literary piece or you will be wasting others time. So write! Write until you are finished because no one had ever made an opinion of a film, novel, or play with just the first scene.
