That’s it I’m all outta words for today – bookwise that is. I’m having a major writer’s block, like the worst ever. I need a few thousand more words but they just aren’t happening. I’m ready to end it (the manuscript) but I don’t think I can. I’m not going to waste all this time writing something that should be a novel and not a novella. Words why won’t you come to me? Grrrr.
I found my favourite little gif to add to this blog (I apologise for those who get offended). I regret not loving when I was in the same situation where I needed to type, to get all of my ideas down as quickly as possible so much so that everything ached and I felt like the little guy who typed his fingers off. Its definitely feels like you can’t stop, unperturbed by the pain, cramping body parts and blood loss to the fingers. I want to move on, start another book (the second book in my series) but it’s not fair on this one. I’ve been dying to try my hand at the self-publishing game and I think this book is the perfect one. I’m lucky enough to have some beta readers who I know can whip through this book in no time then it’s on to trying to create a cover…. but I’m excited about it all. For that to happen though, I need a finish manuscript. I know I call my manuscripts my ‘books’ but to me they are and even if it’s not the ‘technical’ name for what they are, they’re my babies so I’ll refer to them in whatever way I think best suits them. When I first starting writing my first ‘book’ I wondered how I’d ever get the idea for another book. I was stumped but I was only half way through that one and the ideas for a second, third, etc flowed in. Slowly I started to have random thoughts about stories that would play out great. Ideas that I would be able to write 10’s of thousands of words about and now here I am. Once I finish this book I have not only the second book to start but there’s another idea that randomly fills my head, showing me the events that could happen, leading me to write a great story.
Yet now I sit here blogging, not an idea in my head for this current manuscript. It’s empty, I’ve used up all my thoughts. I really hope they replenish and SOON.
I’m going to try my hand at book reviewing and I’ve read a few books in the last week so I guess now is the perfect time to vent my thoughts on them. I guess I’ll try not to add in spoilers but they ruin a book if you’re yet to read it. I may just sit here for awhile and blog til my heart’s content.
