So, I want to become an author, but I have a really bad problem. I start stories then I get writer’s block and then I start a new project to help get over writer’s block and plan on going back to the other one. The thing is that on paper it’s a good idea but when I am working on it, I never follow it. I start the new one and just never go back to the old one. This last month I have been looking through my google docs. I have found more than 20 stories but most of them had the same concept from other stories just with different character names. There are at least thirteen different stories. So, I’ve been re-reading them. I try to figure out if it’s something that I should keep it, or should I just delete it. The plot in the ones that I delete normally isn’t something that I can follow very easily, and I know that if I can’t follow the plot I won’t be able to write a good story from it. I know that to become an author I need to finish a story, but I’ve tried outlining and that’s made it harder to write the story because it feels written out and there is no creativity in it. I’ve tried just writing it out from start to end, but I get writer’s block about 2/3 of the way through it. I think I need to find the middle ground in between the two. I think outlining the basic chapter and leave how it gets to the next chapter up for creativity. I will be taking the story that I am working on now and apply this way of outlining and see if I finish it. The thing is that I won’t know if it works until six or eight months down the road. So, what I will do is I will make a weekly post about how I think it is going. I will make it sort of like an update.
I am thinking of things that I can do with this blog. A lot of them are more like updates. Some of them are like story updates. Then there are some of them that are getting to know more about myself and letting you guys know more about who I am and what I stand for. The thing is that I will not be taking a political stance on anything in this blog. I don’t want people hating on me for where I stand with that. Thank you for your understanding. I know that I am doing the best I can.
I am getting a b- in my class as of right now. I have just two more weeks in this eight-week class. All my classes are going to be eight weeks long. I know that they are going to get harder or more difficult, but this is something that I want to do. I am going to school for Creative Writing. I did go to another school for creative writing, but it just wasn’t what I was looking for. So, I transferred out. I will not name the school here because over all I liked the school and if I want to take my creative writing into a different direction then I will go back to that school. I like where this school is taking me in my path to become an author.
I just want to thank you all for taking the time to read this. It really means a lot to me. So, thank you and have a good day.
