This week has been a little strained for me and so I’ve struggled to get into the headspace to write a proper “writing” blog post.
So I thought rather than pass or delay posting, I’ll just give you some random writing facts about me. Enjoy.
☆ I currently have around 8 book series/trilogy ideas.
☆ Almost all of these ideas have either detailed plots or at least some semblance of a plot idea and characters.
☆ As well as these 8 book series ideas, I also have around half a dozen single-story ideas… that may eventually morph into series. I will be truly surprised if I ever write a standalone story.
☆ I have two manuscripts going at once, though I have been (mostly good) and tried to dedicate my time to just one of them.
☆ One of my manuscripts is currently over 200,000 words and counting (once finished…if I ever finish the damn thing, I’ll probably need to cut it down) lol.
☆ My current manuscript I am working on is a preternatural urban fantasy called Dark Hart and it’s killing me.
☆ The first manuscript I completed was a sci-fi and was about 25 chapters long. I was 14 years old.
☆ My biggest writing issue is keeping exposition down, I usually have to dump in all the expo and then go back later and cut it down, spread it throughout the manuscript.
☆ I struggle to keep myself from constantly tweaking a plot looking for perfection… I’ve sometimes tweaked it so much that it ruined the whole idea and had to start again.
☆ I get most of my ideas while driving.
☆ When I was a teenager, I had several poems published within an anthology.
☆ The hardest thing about writing for me will be letting my writing out so that people can read it.
