Getting to my novel.

So far I’m 1/3 of the way done with my novel. That itself is an accomplishment on its own. Hopefully I don’t mess myself up and keep the pace up. I will say that I am questioning how I execute my next arc. It all needs to come to together for my final arc. I know where I wanna get I just don’t know how I’m going to do it right. Anyways wish me luck and as always, keep writing!

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.

All is well so far but I am still cautious. I’m still waiting on the day I run into writers block or when I throw a monkey wrench into my own creation. I’m finishing up chapter six and heading into chapter seven. I’m 10,000 words in. I know that isn’t much but like I always tell other writers the main goal is to write the story down. You can always come back and add the small details that bring it to life. So right now my main focus is sketching it out; I’ll fill it in later. I’m actually exited about getting to the next chapter. I’ll be introducing the antagonist. So that so far where I’m at. (I’m actually currently writing so I can’t write much) Like always keep writing and I’ll write more updates next Monday or so.

Getting to my novel.

It’s been over a week and few updates have been made to my novel. My main focus right now is how to start. The first sentence and word are important to me. Some of my readers may disagree and suggest that worrying about the little things will make no difference and I would agree if it were the rest of the manuscript but were talking about the beginning sentence. A small detail that will decide whether the reader will continue or not. You’d be surprised how many people decide if their going to read a novel based on the first chapter and even first sentence.  So now the question has been, how to start? Imagery, dialogue, or action. I’ve thought of all the circumstances and I’ve painted different scenarios using all mediums and have finally decided on how to execute the beginning. I think I’ll present my protagonist. This will be the best way to start. I’ve seen others do the complete opposite. They bring the world and the circumstances the character is having to live in before presenting him or her but this is no story about the world but the character and his views on it. I think what I want to do is bring my protagonist to life first before anything else. He will come into existence first and then the world as followed.
