12 Writing Facts about Ari Meghlen

This week has been a little strained for me and so I’ve struggled to get into the head space 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.

12 writing facts about me

☆  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 work out so that people can read it.

Happy writing
