Day 3 of writing

I have done no writing. But at least I thought about my story lol. I have also been taken over by feelings of disappointment because I feel like I should be more successful financial wise. I’ve been writing for years, my skill level is decent, but I have no marketing skills what so ever. Maybe I should go into erotica, I’ve got an idea for a story. That’s a sure fire way to get some cash right? Hahahaha.

I have this scenario in my head that I put out one story and it’s more successful than all my other books combined. That would be hilarious.

Day 2 of writing

I wrote a little bit for the third chapter, but it is not completed. I’m feeling a little better since I got back into writing again. It also helps that the cats are used to me now and sit on my lap, but they end up walking all over my laptop lol.

I might try to do some more after my second shift because I didn’t do anything during my break. I’ve decided that I’m going to finish the first draft of this book by the end of the year 🙂

Day 1 of writing

I’m going to be doing 30 blog posts, once a day, to prompt me into writing again. I’ve been slowly coming out of my burnout but sometimes writing still seems like a shitty assignment that I feel like I have to do rather want to do.

Only in the last few weeks that I’ve begun to have thoughts of returning to my works. I’ve got so many half-completed first drafts that it is not funny. Especially since I just begun another story and it might be a longish one too. I’m currently on the third chapter. This story is the one I mentioned a few days ago.

A new story in progress

I’ve written the first three chapters of a new story. I had writing a skeleton draft of this story last November. I pretty much started with the end in mind and during a plane trip got back into it and added some more events to it.

It’s going to be a young adult fantasy set in a late-medievalist style period, but at the same time, there is also a palace setting that is more advanced in culture and technology but not by much. Think 1600/1700’s.

It mainly follows one girl, Katella, whose brought to the palace in disguise by her half-sister and her father so she can help them stay in power because they have been conning the priests and the royal family. But it is also a time a stress and political intrigue and if they are found out to be lying about what they can do it can be disastrous.

The first two chapters were quite tedious to write. I’m thinking that it may be because I’m still a little burnt out. But I’m planning on writing the scenes I like first, so it’s going to be all over the place, but maybe that will help me as I’m going into this story half blind with what’s going to happen.
