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?
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.
