How are you all doing? How is your writing coming along?
I've gone back and forth on what I'm writing. I am still working on my BIG project, but love writing children's stories on the side. I'm working on a "fairytale" at the moment, and I think it's quite creative. It was actually inspired from a video game of my childhood. Yes,
I've also realized it doesn't matter if my writing ideas aren't very good, the KEY is to keep on writing. Even a little bit each day. When I go lengthy periods of time without writing, I see how rusty I truly become. It's a very negative aspect. Also, reading a lot helps as well. I read a TON, and when I do, I gain ideas, and see the writing techniques of other authors. It's almost better than being in a writing class; the authors are our mentors. My professor if you will.
I start Grad School next Monday (AH!), and I cannot wait. But I go every single day, full-time, for 8 weeks. I'm going to be super busy and won't be able to go on a lot of trips this summer or what not. But, I have realized that this is the perfect opportunity to write a lot (between studying/homework). I am going to school at Westminster College, and it's a beautiful campus. Lots of quiet places to write. I'm really hoping to get a rough draft done of my main project by the end of summer, but all good things take work.
I just got the Harry Potter series on my Kindle, yes, the whole series, and I just love the way J.K. Rowling writes. It reminds me of why I love writing. It's all storytelling and I've been storytelling since the age of 5. My cute Nana would listen for hours as I would tell stories and write them down for her...poems as well. There are people who really support my writing, and others who look at it merely as just a hobby and nothing will come of it. That's fine. I don't have to have that many people back me up. I know it's a passion of mine, and I would love to become a published author one day. I might not make it big like Stephen King, J.K, or a lot of others, but I will be sharing what I love, and that makes all the difference in the world.
Thank you for following me on my journey; I'm very blessed to have bloggers like YOU in my life.
