The One? | My Writing Journey (part 3)

PART 3
Yo. I’m back for another rant. Ha, not really. I’m actually in a pretty decent mood writing wise. You want to know why?
Do you?
I think I found THE ONE!
Ahah, you like the new gifs? I figured I’d try and brighten up these posts, since they’re going to be pretty regular. It’s so therapeutic!
Anyway, what was I saying? Oh yeah, so I’m *touches all the wood* almost sure I’ve found the one story I will finish and am completely in love with. Okay so I feel that way about most of my stories, but seriously. Guys. Hear me out!
I wrote over 8 THOUSAND words in one night last Wednesday. 8K! Can you believe that? I can’t. I still can’t. Altogether I’ve written 16k in then. It’s not even been a whole week yet, people! 16K is more than I usually manage in two weeks, let alone in  5 days. Yikes!
I’m not sure if it helps that this is not a YA story, nor is it my usual fantasy based plot. It’s contemporary, and it’s…dare I say it, ‘inspired’ by my life? I guess at the start it was more “me exaggerated” and less “autobiographical”. I am, however, a bit awkward about showing any of it to my mum when the time comes because I know she’ll recognise myself in this main character.
So basically I’m praying to anything and everything that I don’t run out of motivation or…you know…plot. I don’t actually have any plot. So okay, maybe I should create one? Uhuh…yeah. 
You already know – or at least you should by now – that I don’t outline, though I’m thinking I should start. However, the trick to me getting so many words done in so short a time? Well, I’ve not been stressing. It was a fling, something I wasn’t even contemplating as serious, with no pressure to have it be seen, I was able to just…write. Also, it helps that it’s SLIGHTLY closer to home? Maybe not THAT close, but like…1 foot step? 
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that so far everything is going smoothly. I mean, I’ve not GIVEN UP on my other story…but in comparison, I don’t know why I didn’t think of THIS story to begin with? I guess because I don’t consider myself an adult (i know I am, but I don’t behave it. Logic, huh) and I don’t really read many adult contemps…so god knows. This might not even read as an adult contemp, which is why I’m wondering if it’d work as a YA. There’s quite a bit of swearing in it, but then, don’t a lot of YA have swearing in these days? Especially the higher end of it all. My MC behaves kinda childishly sometimes, but that’s why it’s so relatable. haha
So I guess that concludes my update. I hope it wasn’t too overwhelming. Hopefully next week I’ll be able to tell you I’ve finished it? 
One can dream.
Until next week, my friends.

    Hey, great news. The writers that I see talking about how they write, always seem to say its easier to write what you know! So, sounds like you’re on to a winner. Maybe its not necessary to define it to a genre just yet, just see where it ends up. (if you haven’t got a plot, then maybe its the way for you?).
    I like the added gifs to your posts too.
    Hope the inspiration sticks around.
