27 Thoughts All Writers Have



This will be a fantastic story.

No one is going to read this.

I have no idea what's going on.

Coffee

If I write it perfect now, I won't have to edit.

Perfection is impossible, failing is inevitable.

Now this, this is a genius idea.

Has anyone come up with this before?

The movie soundtrack to this scene would be amazing.

I wonder what it's like to feel that?

I'm grossly unqualified to write about life.

These characters are committing mutiny.

I need to have a backup plan if I get rejected again.

Cupcakes.

I wish more of my friends understood what it's like to be a writer.

It feels so good to have aching fingers from typing.

I will only use Pinterest for inspiration. I will not, in any way, get distracted.

Oo, chocolate cake.

Writing is harder than I thought.

I feel like this is taking too long.

These two characters: I ship them.

Why is one of my minor characters my favorite to write?

Am I the only person who will enjoy this story?

Maybe it's not actually worth it to finish?

I should move on and find a new hobby.

No.

This story has to be written, and I am the one to write it.

How to Create a Fact Manual for a Book Series {Peek into My Next Story}

I started my current story, Ideal Lies, last year, and this time, I decided to make it a trilogy. This story is a mix between dystopian and utopian.


I Missed the Only Year of My Life When I Could Sing, "I am sixteen going on seventeen."

Sound of Music has been my favorite movie since I was in kindergarten. My second favorite scenes was the invasion of the Nazi's. Don't ask why? I guess it was foreshadowing to my future history major. My favorite scene is when Liesl sings, "I am sixteen going on seventeen." 
     For years, I waited until I turned sixteen so I could sing that song. I didn't care that the two characters were falling in love. I just wanted to sing the lines, "I am sixteen," with accuracy. 
     Well, today I am seventeen. In the past year, I never got the chance to watch Sound of Music and sing along. This kind of made me sad . . .

She fell in love with the movie just like had, and she doesn't care that she's not sixteen. She just loves music and singing. Listening to her was better than fulfilling a childhood dream.

Writing a Book With Two POVs and a Linear Timeline

I've never been one to write an "easy" story.

Even the project I'm working on now, one I began almost four years ago, was one of complex construction. Mainly, this book was made up of two side by side points of view. Two different characters told two different stories that only intertwined at crucial points throughout the plot. Before I even began, I knew that it would be a difficult story to write without causing mass confusion. 
I'd never written a story anything like this before (and even now, I'm editing to change one of the storylines completely), but I knew one thing:  {My time-line could never back-peddle.}

This would prove an annoying decision, but one that drastically improved my story. Every story is different, but I can outline the logistics of what I did to make this linear timeline possible. 
First, decide your primary main character. With two stories, not just two perspectives on the same story, your story will appear to have two main characters. You…
