Struck by Inspiration 


I’ve mentioned this before, I think, that I have multiple projects going on at one time. It’s really hard for me to focus on just one story. Plus, it doesn’t help that my brain vomits new ideas almost every week. I would be lost without my idea notebook.

Today just happened to be the day that I got struck by inspiration  to write the next chapter of The Vampire Prince goes to High School on wattpad. Yes, I know how it spounds. Don’t judge me. However, I will say that I’m working with themes such as discrimination, issues over species, being a bystander, among other subjects. I’m not sure how effectively I’ve executed those themes but the intent is there.

It’s taken me a long time to write this story but it’s a story that I want to write and I want to finish no matter how long it takes. Although, I didn’t get to write much on Spirit Guardians or work on all the stories I have to beta read, I don’t feel bad. I’m trying to avoid putting too much on my plate right now. While I can multi- task, I don’t want to drown myself. There is no pressure to finish beta reading those super fast. So I got time.

For now, I’m just going to go with the flow. I’m still going to work on Spirit Guardians but if inspiration hits for another, I won’t turn my back.

Rest is for the weak


December 1st is upon us! To everyone that successfully completed NaNoWriMo, CONGRATULATIONS ! !!!

To anyone who didn’t, don’t get discouraged. At least you participated. There’s always next year. Don’t give up.

Now that I don’t have to write a novel in a month that doesn’t mean that I’m going to take a break. If there is one thing that NaNoWriMo taught me is this: just keep writing. It doesn’t matter how it sounds now. With those words in mind, I’ve gone back to a story that I’ve stopped working on because I didn’t like how it was turning out. Now, I’m ready to give it another chance.

The story is currently titled Spirit Guardians but I’m thinking about changing it. Fantasy genre. I’m drawing from different cultures for inspiration – myths, legends, and monsters. That sort of thing.

I did go back to writing on paper. Honestly, I think I typed too much this past month. I need a break from that. Plus, having Power Rangers playing in the background really helps.

For now, even though my writing is vague on descriptions and information, I’m just going to keep writing. I just got to remember not to revise. The second drafts are much better than the first but not by much.
