Day One

So, today is my first day of writing. I have managed to spill out 2,425 words so far. Enough for my first chapter.

I'm not sure if I will keep going today, but I believe a break from the computer will be in order at some point. This new story, which still does not have a name, is coming along nicely. I'm writing it in third person, a first for me, so I'm a littler nervous about that. I'm afraid it will end up reading like a screen play and not a novel. I have a lot of dialog. I don't feel this is such a bad thing though, because I always love stories with lots of dialog and find myself skipping to it as well.

So far, I'm pleased with myself and am ready for this story to take shape. I know last time I wrote I had people who read my work and helped me. I am all for that this time as well so if you are interested let me know either on here or facebook me, or e-mail me.

I have to work all day tomorrow so I doubt any writing will be able to be squeezed into it. But since school is over for now I'm going to take total advantage of my new free time. :D

Getting into the swing of things

I finished my last paper for school today, and am finally free to read and write what I want. :D

I have had an idea for a story for a few months now, just been working it out in my head, and now its finally time to start typing away at it! I made myself wait to write it so not to interfere with my grades. Writing, for me at least, its very consuming and takes up lots of time. I wanted to make sure I had one less commitment. So, this summer break I hope to crank out this book! Plan to hear lots from me on this blog and Facebook and twitter. I might even plan a giveaway or two! Online world be prepared...I am coming at you with full force!

There are a few staples I have to have when preparing to write a book. 1. An empty notebook. Mine is red (my favorite color) and my mom gave it to me. I use a notebook to keep track of plot lines and use it to write my outline for the story. It is only a one subject so I have a feeling I might have to buy another one at some point. 2. A good pen. I found one of my favorite pens today right in time! I like pens where the ink flows and goes on smooth. 3. A computer! A person who really believes in my bought me a computer about a year ago just for my writing and I'm glad I can finally say its going to be used for that.

Tomorrow the writing begins...to bad I don't have a title for this new book yet.
