There have been some changes going on in my writing life – changes that I am nearly ready to start with… Nearly.
I am nervous, because it is romance writing, and it isn’t something I am really that crash hot on, but after reading some really interesting information from Net Places about writing a romance novel (they also have lots of info on writing a novel and creative writing too!) I found this site very interesting and informative and I am almost ready… almost.
But I am procrastinating. I guess because I will be writing a story from scratch – unlike Medusa which was reworking a story I had. While it was a rewrite and I added almost 30k, it isn’t the same as starting a story from the beginning, filling in the middle, having a satisfactory ending, while also making everything come together romance-wise.
I have the storyline, a plot, couple of subplots, bits and pieces of the middle, a kind of ending, but for some reason I am resisting writing. And I think it is the nervousness of writing something. Even though I know that it won’t be bad, it just makes me extremely nervous. I guess, I won’t know how it will go until I get down and dirty with my laptop (excuse the pun).
I also like having a timeframe to write in, that’s why I love SoCNoC and I am considering writing during Nano – except November is Exam month traditionally in NZ, so I won’t be able to write through some of it, because I will be reader / writer, possibly for more than one teen.
But I digress. I guess, I could just challenge myself. Set my own deadline and write to it. I suppose I could… eventually.
