My Journey to a Novel
As I continue on my journey to my novel this month, I hope you will come along. If you were ever hoping to write a novel yourself, let’s do it together. Comment below or shoot me an email and we can help each other out. To begin in writing my novel, I have made a board with important points to include in my book, and the journey within the book I want to take my readers through.
Choosing a title is not always something a writer/ author needs to do right off the bat. In fact, as I understand it to be most write their story and then choose a title as a last move! I personally think my title will help me focus on my journey, if I need to change it later it can be changed but it helps me to title it. It will lead me into my story.
Beginning my story
As I begin my story, I stepped back in the morning of my story and told my readers how we ended up in the beginning of our true journey. Which will lead to introducing our main characters. The introduction of our first two main characters take place in the first few pages of my story, then as they meet up with new characters we introduce them to our readers.
About this weekends contest
This weekend, I set out to and signed up to do a three day novel writing contest. It didn’t pan out, as I planned. As it turns out my muse cannot be told when to write or when to be creative on paper. It cannot be rushed.
Also to top it off my novel is an American novel, and the chosen publisher that will be publishing the winners book is from Canada. And to be honest although the subject matter is not political enough to sway anyone away, the subject matter may stop the judging in my favor. Bottomline, I started out at midnight Saturday morning and started writing but couldn’t get my flow going. I prepared- or maybe over prepared for things, to allow my muse to be it’s best. So I made the command decision to take this month and write everyday and complete my novel. Also writing my novel in three days is not exactly enough time to write it all, as it would only truly allow anyone to write a short novel.
My new goal is to finish writing my novel by September 30th and by October 8, 2017. Each day I will be writing a new portion of my book, today I am writing the very beginning which will get me to my first part of my journey. And introduce my first two characters.
Today we will be writing about the first steps in our day that will lead to the beginning of our journey. We will be introducing our first two characters to our readers which will lead to our true journey and our next two main characters.
To be honest, when we go out for a run, or do our doga or yoga sessions I have my muse very active and the ideas and all want to keep flowing. So as I head out for a run I will continue to run this week, but I will be using my headphones and dictating as we continue to run while I use my Dragon App.
Dragon allows one to work while on the go…
It’s easy to use and one can multi- task through their day and let their muse run wild.
Ok, so that is the beginning of our journey, we hope you will join us as we bring you more updates throughout the month and as we edit and look to get published and more.
Until our next update, have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day.
