Getting to my novel.

So honestly, I haven’t written anything. Not that I’m having writers block but I’ve just been slacking. Work, my actual job, is getting hectic. I get home and all I wanna do is sleep. Nothing wrong with that. No ones a super human and we can only do so much before it catches up to us. Good news is that I will have the weekend to myself and the Monday for Labor day, super good news. I’m feel optimistic. Anyways, like I always say, keep writing and see you next Monday!

Getting to my novel.

I’m going to go ahead and write this before I forget like last week. Luckily, unlike last week, where I barely wrote a paragraph, I managed to write close to fifteen- hundred words. It didn’t come easy. I had to get away from the front screen of my laptop and take a drive. If there’s something I’ve learned about getting around writers block is letting go and getting fresh air. I’d be lying if I said I came back and wrote the fifteen- hundred words. I sat down and wrote down all the possible outcomes for the following chapter. I followed through with all of them and saw where they took me. I did that until I found the one that made sense. I’d tell you what it was but that would ruin the plot to my novel and it will give it all away. So you’ll just have to buy a copy when it releases. What I can tell you is how to get around writers block! Get away from your novel. Take a drive or walk in the park. Write down your best ideas and when you get back see where they take you. Before you know it, you’ll be writing and three hours have passed by! That’s what I’ve been up too. I hope I’ve helped you in the bit.

As always don’t forget keep writing!

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 published my first novel about a year ago and I didn’t keep a journal of my journey of any sort. I wish I had because then I would be able to go back and analyze where I was weak in doing. Now here I am, a year later, preparing to write my next novel and now I’ve decided to welcome anyone willing to join me and my quest. Maybe, this will happen someone whose trying to get into writing their own piece but don’t know how or where to start.

I always knew I was going to write another novel but I honestly didn’t know when it was going to happen and like my last novel it started with a sentence. “Gods amongst us,” this phrase has replayed inside my head over and over for about a month before a character came to life in my head. A story then played out and like the universe, some parts grew and developed as others died out. This is one reason why I don’t write in a notepad or keep a journey, unless it involves dialogue. The best ideas will always stay and the only one I need is how it will all end. That and the book title. I have two so far: “Gods Amongst Us,” and “L’artist.” Two titles that give away two different feelings but both have the same intent. So now with everything in place I can now start my next novel. Now I can get a notepad and write down events and make sure they make sense. Until then, I have to decide between the two titles. Any thoughts? I start writing in the beginning of the upcoming month and I’ve given myself six months to finish a good enough manuscript to give out. Its noting complex like my last novel. My plan is to continue writing these updates weekly even if I don’t add anything to my novel. Novelist aren’t always writing. Sometimes we spend an entire week on one paragraph and other times we may not write anything at all and that why I started this. It may help and encourage more writers.

Lovely

A Poem By: Francisco Dosal

Such lovely rose

My heart arouse

To take it home

No more alone.

Petals fell.

Colors fading.

I took a life.

That needed no saving.
