So, I finally decided to make one of these. Just a bit of background: This is my first novel (It's YA fiction), and the idea for it has existed for a little over two years. It currently does not have a title. (It's had many titles in the past, but none of them have ever stuck, so I just call it "The Story") Since it came into existence, I've written a "first draft" which has a very basic outline of what I want this story to be, and it is 22k. (It also makes me cringe and/or cry whenever I read it because it's not written very good) Present day: My "second draft" currently sits at around 50k (haven't done a word count add up in a couple chapters) I'm a little over half way done as long as I don't add any more chapter ideas in my outline. I started this in, probably, March 2017. (Can't remember for sure) This book means a lot to me, and I hope to one day get it published. I feel like only then will the characters leave me alone (If they were real people, I think they would be constantly tugging at my arm, saying "Come on, keep writing!) I feel like my young age is a good and bad thing as I try to write this novel. Good because I have the self satisfaction of knowing that I'm a "young writer" (Don't know if that makes sense or not, but oh well) Bad because I sometimes feel like since I'm young, I'm automatically not as good as other, older, more experienced writers. I'm naturally creative though, so I'm not very surprised that I've found myself on this path. My current goal is just to keep writing, and make sure I'm writing as high quality chapters as I can. Anyways, I will try to keep this updated as I continue on the path of finishing this draft, and whatever happens from there. Thanks for stopping by!
