I’ve found out that, now that I’ve started writing my novel, I can barely stop.
I stopped for half a day, because I got stuck on a part, but I ended up just pushing through it and it’s on a roll again. I’m almost at 10k as of right now, and that’s pretty on track for day 6! Whewt!! I’m hoping to push a little over that to 11 or 12k this evening, though. Working hard!
And Oh my gods, is this first draft the most horrendous thing I’ve ever written, but I’ve sworn off fixing and editing until I finish writing it. Even if that means that I’ll go into part of December without editing, I’m okay with that.
The thing that’s sort of holding it back a little, is the lack of research that I’ve done on certain topics. Like what happens on a cruise ship (though I’ve recently found a pretty awesome little resource for this), or specific little things about leviathans. I’ve done some base work research on pirate things, and old timey ships, but I’m not sure that’ll carry me through the entire thing. Ah well, that’s what free time and the internet is for. Also editing.
But I’m still having a blast writing it. Once I get things more together, I’m definitely going to be posting my book on Tablo. It’s this bomb site that I’ve found that I can publish my stories for readers, and it’s all free. For writers and readers alike! It’s great for first timers, or for stories that I don’t think would be a good fit for ebook/traditional publishing for one reason or another.
Anyway, that’s what’s been distracting me from posting here. I’ll try to make more of an effort to keep you guys updated, though!
That’s all for now, and I’ll keep you guys updated!~
Thanks for reading!
