I know is still 2019, but with 2020 so close, I didn't see a point in making a 2019 journal for only three or four weeks. My last writing journal was from 2018, I think. I decided to start a new journal because I'll be working on a diferent project. I'm currently taking a one-year-long novel writing course, which is different from the ones I've taken before. In this course I have access to all the material from the very start, and I have a year to talk with my tutor and ask her for guidance and feedback while I work on my current project. My tutor won't read any part of my novel during this year, because I'll be working on a first draft, and they are usually not the best material to show to alpha or beta readers until they are complete and revised at least once by the author; but I'll be showing her my planning documents and making some brainstorming sessions with her. And I'll also be asking her questions about theory and practice, and also whenever a hit a roadblock. I'm now one month into the course and I've gone through all the material once. I've also told my tutor about the plot of my story, the characters, and the major roablocks I've faced so far while trying to write and complete novels. She has given me feedback on it, asked more questions (some of which I've already answered), and suggested some ideas to think about. I've also started to fill some of the worksheets that come with the course material. My next task from the tutor, besides pondering on some suggestions she made plus some ideas, is to write a brief summary of each part of the novel: The Beginning, The Middle, and The End. The main tools I'm using so far are Scrivener, AeonTimeline, yWriter (both the PC and the Android versions), printed worksheets I'm filling by hand, and the resources at the One Stop For Writers website. Besides my main project for the Novel Writing Course, I'll be working from time to time on some side projects.
