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.

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!

I can’t say I’ve done much but I won’t say I’ve done nothing either. I’ve been messing with the first chapter longer then I should but I can’t shake the feeling that it’s missing something. I wouldn’t recommend doing this. I’ve always insisted that getting to the end is important and it is. By getting your manuscript done you can maneuver easier when you have to re-write and edit. In theory everything falls into place but in practice, you sometimes get stuck and even if you move on, you mind will not move forward. The best advice I could give is to satisfy yourself the best you can and move on forward. Work on the sentence, paragraph, or chapter just enough and try to get sucked into it because you’ll never be satisfied. I had to remind myself this. So I’ll leave you with that tip and I’ll do my best to take my own advice.

Getting to my novel.

The prologue and first chapter have been written. I wanna believe that I’m ahead of schedule but I know that the further I get on my novel the more changes and adjustments I’ll make. It’s natural, for example: I had the first chapter planned out yet random characters and odd dialogue have sprung up, unplanned. You go along with it and see where it takes you but always get your character back in track not for the sake of the story line but because your character, like any other character, has a goal and he/she can not stray from it. Other writers ignore these sideshows but I feel that by adding them to the story, it helps create a more authentic world. Not only that but, in my case, the side characters and the event unfolding has helped the transition into the second chapter fall in more smoother than I had planned. So its never a bad idea to see where your writing is headed and if it convoluted you can always delete it. So thats where I’m at. Hopefully I can keep this boat steady and get across the Atlantic ocean without any disruption.
