Word Count Wednesday #14

What am I working on?
I've started to think about ideas for my next chapter I've written down a few things but nothing really as of yet. 

How do I feel about the process?

It is definitely a lot harder than I ever thought it was going to be. I want to not only please myself but make it so that people want to read it. It's a tough balance but I'm going to keep trying. 

What am I reading now?

Still pushing through The Road

What am I working on?
I've taken a bit of a break after writing my second chapter but I'm going to give slam poetry a shot and see what I can do with it.  

How do I feel about the process?

I was pleased with my second chapter but I haven't figured out exactly where the book is going. But I'm excited to see what slam poetry brings to the table and what I can do with it. 

What am I reading now?

Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf for my other English class.

It has been good so far, I've introduced new characters and I'm enjoying discovering who they are and their purpose in my narrative.

Lately, nothing to be honest.

What am I working on?

My novel. After the last submission I've gone back and tried to figure out exactly what I wanted to do and I'm still trying to figure that out. I've started to write an alternate version of my book this time with a new lead and the two cops coming in later as minor characters. I also have thought about the plot more and where I might want to take but so far nothing concrete. 

How do I feel about the process?


It's tricky, to be honest. Finding out what will work what characters go well together and the overall appeal of the story are things that have proven to be quite the challenge. 

What am I reading now?

Still just reading The Road and blogs.

Word Count Wednesday #10

What am I working on?

After the character building we did today in class I've decided to use that character in a story. When I finished writing the first chapter of my novel, I wasn't entirely happy with the outcome therefore I want to take a different approach this time using this new character.

How do I feel about the process?

I have always been one to make up a character as I wrote, but after today's activity I've  been exposed to a whole new world of character building. Moving forward I plan on always creating a character in depth before writing their story. 

What am I reading now?

I am still reading and having a lot of fun with The Road.

What am I working on?

Not much. I've just been working on the same projects as well as tinkering with a few ideas for some of the experiments. 

How do I feel about the process?

It has been a relaxing process just writing what I want when an idea pops into my head. 
 

What am I reading now?

I finally was able to pick back up The Road and have been reading that for the last couple of days.

Word Count Wednesday #8

I hope everyone is having a wonderful spring break. 

What am I working on?

I have not been working on much this week just spring break fun but I have bought a small notebook that I can carry around. After we talked about how to get more writing in I thought hey! let's give this a try. As someone who prefers writing with a pen, it seemed perfect. I've only written down random thoughts so far but hopefully something more concrete in the future. 
About 300 words

How do I feel about the process?

I love it. I feel like I feel more accomplished when writing something down. So I'm excited to see where this goes. 

What am I reading now?

Not much still just taking my time through On Writing.
