Getting to my novel.

I’d be lying if I said things were going smoothly. Its nothing I can’t handle or anything out of the ordinary. I’ve just had trouble planning. These kinds of things happen to an artist I feel. One minute an idea is perfect and you plan it out and the execution should not falter but then the idea could come falling about with just a single hiccup. I guess you could say thats whats going on with me. I had a plan and now I’m debating if the story flows. Nonetheless, I am writing. You have to! I really believe that even when nothing is making sense everything will fall into place. Thats what happened in my previous novel and that piece of literature is much more complex than this novel. So I’ll keep writing even if none of it is making sense. I’m sure that near the middle I’ll move some paragraphs around and maybe some chapters and it will all come together smoothly. So thats where I’m at with my novel. Where are you?

Oh, and before I forget don’t forget to keep writing!

Getting to my novel.

I’m late in writing this. I’ve been busy with a painting that just could not give me the time of day to ignore it. I finished it a bit rushed but it was good enough to let go for another time. With this having been said, I have not added anything to my novel. I’m questioning its plot sequence and trying to figure out what the best next movie is. I’m debating between introducing a key character into the scene or continuing the protagonist quest. Whatever I decide, determined a lot of where my novel goes so I’m taking my time and not rushing into anything I’m going to regret later. Sometimes its better to just sit back and not write. I hope I get to write a bit more this week.

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.

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.
