Contrary to popular belief I have gotten some writing done. I finished the hand written draft of my novel and am in the process of typing it.
I honestly think typing it is harder than hand writing. I can’t sit and type for more than a half hour before having to jump up and run around. That and I start mistyping a lot of stuff. Maybe that’s just me.
So here’s a question: how does everybody else write their books and short stories? Handwritten? Computer? Do you take frequent breaks?
I know some people find that two hundred hand written pages is a lot but honestly I’ve done it for three books and it feels better for me. I feel like ideas flow better.
Besides, when I go back and type it then I get a small overview of what kind of crap I’ll be editing in a month or so.
That book is in production but I’m taking my time so it’ll be a LONG while before I have it remotely ready for trying to publish. There are some good parts about it, but it is a little rough around the edges.
My other book, the one I want to e-book, is still sitting stagnent. For now. I’m going to get to it as soon as I’m done typing the other one.
I’m a little worried about e-booking. Honestly, I prefer the old paperback and really don’t like the whole idea of books going electronic so I try to avoid anything and everything associated with them.
But I’m going to give this a try. One, I want to see what happens. Will it actually get a few people to buy it? No?
2) I want to see if other people like my style of writing. In all honesty I want an honest opinon. The book is in a different point of view and way out of the realm of fantasy I usually write. It deals about some more mature themesand I’m curious to see if I have the ability to tackle that.
3)It’s free to publish! I think. Not much else to say here.
4) Okay, yeah, if I can make a couple of bucks in the process then that wouldn’t hurt. Of course this will be dependent on how well I can market it ( I have no idea how to do that) but if it’s sellin’ then people like the writing which ROCKS!
Make it or break it. All or nothing. A good experiment.
And that is all of my writing as of late. A lot of it will probably be done by later next semester. Hopefully school will cool down.
