Work in Progress

Hello Friends!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

I am happy to write that I am still excited for my new book idea and it is at this point, pretty much fully structured!
I have already named a few characters and drafted the story-line from start to finish. This is exhilarating for me because I can practically see the characters come to life in my mind. Some of their backstories are already forming and it is shaping up to be something I think could be a decent book!

I haven’t begun writing chapters yet, because I want to get to know my characters and story more thoroughly before I dive into that. This is a new style of writing for me, but I feel like it is helping keep me stay creative.

This project is probably going to take a few months and is primarily something I am doing purely for fun and experience, but if it turns into something more than that then this might be my very first book release. That thought is completely overwhelming, but I feel that I am ready to share a bigger project with the world.

I am still in very early stages, with that being said, so far so good and I hope to continue along this path and come out the other end with something I am proud of.

To all of my writer friends out there who have works finished and/or published: Any advice for this writing journey would be appreciated. From what your writing style is to any habits you have instilled to keep you going. Anything and everything I want to hear about to keep the inspiration alive!

That is it as far as updates go for now. I will be working on character development over the next week, so I will see where I end up and if I have any more news to share.
I am ecstatic to take you on this journey with me, I hope you will enjoy it!

Until next time, stay amazing!

-Sara

  1. I am currently in the process of writing a book too. I have a few finished books under my belt. I don’t plan my books out though so I can’t help with that. However, I recommend when you start writing to make a plan to write something nearly everyday even if it is a paragraph. It can get really easy to lose the story if you don’t consistently peck away at it.

    1. That’s vital advice I think. I get ideas all the time about characters and their development, so I am constantly working on the background, even if it doesn’t make it into the book, I think it will make the characters more real.

  2. Sounds amazing! Please share first chapter or book overview once is finished and I am happy to give feedback. Fingers crossed for you i am sure you will smash it! x
    As a advice please never stop believing in yourself and write. even if it does not look good – write, and write more and more until you will be satisfied! Write write write, lack of inspiration – go for a walk, listen your fav music, see friends or family, get ice creams what ever makes you happy then come back, sit and continue to write.

  3. I’m so excited for you! The one thing that I can say that you’ve done that I haven’t is a true outline. I always had the ideas for stories/novels in my head, but I don’t think I’ve ever done a true outline for any of them. I remember doing outlines for papers and such in school, and I probably should apply that process to my own writing. Best of luck – I’m rooting for you here in Virginia!

  4. It’s the best feeling.. to know a complete world is created out of your imagination. It might be the one of the toughest times to sit down and stare down a paper or screen in the process of writing a book, but I am sure you wouldn’t want to trade it with anything else, ever. All the very best! 🙂
