My Writing Process

Sunday, October 30, 2016

My writing process... wow. That's a big topic. Over the past three years in which I've been 'writing seriously' I've learned a lot. I'm constantly changing it and trying new things, but here's a basic overview of how I spend my days write, in a few basic steps.


#1 The Idea

 

Aughhhhhh! *cue frustrated scream* For some reason, this is always the hardest part for me. I know, I know. The idea is the book. But I usually get stuck at this step for quite awhile when trying to start a new project. The reason why?

I force myself to get an idea.

What I've learned:

Good ideas don't come like that.

Dream Writing

Thursday, October 27, 2016
It's a total fact about me in my family: I have weird dreams. Sometimes I'm climbing down a cliff. Sometimes I'm almost getting in a car crash. Or sometimes... I think you get it. It's crazy.

 However, a little while ago, I had a dream that surpassed all others.


It involved those alien dudes from the first Avengers movie.

Now, I haven't watched that movie in ages (call me weird). So how did those guys get in my dream?!?

And how did a character from a book get in as well?

My mom let me do a creative writing assignment on that dream. I've changed some of the names so I don't give any spoilers. I cracked up putting this together. Hope you enjoy ;)

When Fiction Comes to Life.... 

 

 I duck to the side right before one of the monster’s swords hits my head. I shouldn’t have left my weapons in that box in the garage. That was a big mistake.

Hi. Welcome to my new blog.

I hope you enjoy what you find here. But first, let's start with the basics. Why did I start this blog?

For a long time now, it's been a dream of mine to publish a book one day. Writing is a way of life for me. I can't imagine living without it. In my search for good books, I've discovered what I like and don't like, and set off to contribute my own works to the world, to change it, to help it.

I've been taking slow steps on that journey for awhile now. A bit of research. A lot of writing. A ton of learning. And starting this blog is part of that journey.

I didn't start this to just get my name and my writing out into the world. Writing is a ministry to me. I want to leave people feeling a little better than they did before coming here. Spread the love. Share some laughs. Make you smile. Here's what I hope to post here:


Writing Updates

On my favorite author sites, this is always important to me. I try and see if I can come up with something more interesting than word count ;)




Writing Advice

We're all looking for what works and doesn't work. I'd love to share some tips so you can avoid having as many disasters and discouragements as I've had. Even if you're a writer, I bet you'll find this pretty interesting as you get a peak at what writers go through. Yes, go through. 


Inspirational Quotes

I love seeing this sort of stuff on blogs, and I hope you do as well. We all need a little encouragement at times.

         And anything else that comes to mind....

I'm sure I'll think of more to keep you entertained to. I've found that blogs are a great place to learn things and have a good laugh. I hope you find that here.

Thanks for joining me on this next step in my journey
