I’m on the 9th chapter of my novel. This chapter has been a struggle, for a couple of reasons. One, I’ve been doubting my writing skills all week, which has made it harder to write. Two, I’m quickly approaching the mid-point of my book, which will be at approximately 40,000 words; that’s intimidating to me. When I finish the first draft, I have A LOT of work to do.
On a positive note, here’s what I liked this week;
- Most Common Writing Mistakes series on the Helping Writers Become Authors website. This blog series has been so helpful to me this week, and I know I’ll go back and reference it in the future. K.M. Weiland does a great job of explaining common writing mistakes and how to avoid them, with examples!
- Slime Rancher. Another video game. Gameplay consists of exactly what the title says, you keep slimes on a ranch. So relaxing, so fun.
- Harry Potter. Still reading Harry Potter, still loving it.
- Paper. Any other writers out there with an odd fascination with paper? As a kid I wanted to have a job that required a lot of filing so I could touch paper all day. Yeah…I just admitted that. But keeping documents on computers became a major thing and ruined my plans. Anyway, I bought some notebooks with neon paper on Wednesday and they make me happy. Don’t know if I will actually write in them, but that’s another issue.
