My Writing Process: Short Explanation
This isn't going to be a long article, it's just a few things I need to say before I move and continue writing. I'm writing this to inform you about my past writing and my future writing plans, because I thought you guys would like to know.
Here we go:
As you all know, I write poetry, as well as, flash fiction and short stories. Well, I recently published my first Ebook. It's a short romance story that I published to Amazon and I'm proud of myself.
It was a long time coming because I couldn't find any free editorial service. I had friends edit it, then I used a free editing website and that's how I finished editing.
When I first started writing it, I couldn't concentrate. I'd tried all the necessary steps but my creative juices just wouldn't flow, so I left it alone for a few weeks. After those weeks, I had an idea of how I would start it.
Most of it was written on my bedroom floor. I would lay on the floor and began writing, and I was content that way.
After, I was finished writing, I felt as if it wasn't good enough. Or that I wasn't good enough and that was my insecure moments. But I got through it and I'm glad it did.
I'm proud of my Ebook.
I'm in the process of writing my next Ebook.
It is also going to be a romance but it will typically be longer than the first one I've written.
I started writing this in a different way than I wrote my first Ebook. When I wrote my first Ebook, I didn't have a set amount of words that I wanted to hit, but on this one I do.
I'd planned this Ebook before the first one, but I still had more planning to go. I've actually started writing many times, and scrapped it because I didn't like what I was writing. But I'm actually content with what I have now, so I plan to keep it.
I plan to have 10,000 to 12,000 words by the time I'm finished with my Short-Story Ebook. I feel that's more appropriate than the 7,000 I did with my first Ebook. And my plan so far has been to cut the writing process down.
I decided that my set word amount for a day is 2,000. So, I go into my own personal world, and I write until my hand gets tired. After that, I count the words. If I'm at 2,000 then I will stop, but if I'm not, I keep writing. I find that I like it that way, and I edit the 2,000 words after I'm finished.
I'm nervous about this one just like I was with the first one. That basic human emotion though, but it still gets to me.
I'm lucky enough to have supportive friends and family.
I have insecurities with my writing and I'm sure all of you do too. It's just the way it is sometimes and we have to accept. We should always try our best when it comes to our writing.
My first Ebook is called "Weird Circumstances But Let's Be Friends" and as I said before, it is a romance. It's about two people coming together after their relationships fail. They come together in friendship then something more.
I will tell you the name of my upcoming Ebook, once I've finished writing it.
Thank you so much for reading this and I hope you enjoyed my rant about my writing process!
See you later darlings!
