Writing Related Update

I’ve finally gotten myself back into the swing of things. I haven’t really done any writing since I submitted my entry to the competition last week.

You could say that writing competitions are stressful.

I really hope I win.That would be absolutely fantastic. I mean, sure I still get to go to the workshop and learn about publishing novels, but who doesn’t want a could hundred bucks in their pocket before they go off to university?

Anyway, I’m pretty excited about the book I’ve been working on. To be quite honest, I think that I’m falling in love with it. Everything about it is perfect….I refuse to give up on this book like I did with the last. I know what I’m doing now, and I’ve got a ton of experience after editing and rewriting the same novel for…*sighs* almost seven years–I can’t believe I spent that much time of my life on a book that had no actual plot or structure or–.

Well I’m pretty excited and I’m looking forward to having this book published so that people can read it. I hope that they’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I think this is the first book that I’ve ever written completely in third person, as I used to only write in first person. Third person however works much better for these types of novels….I don’t want to give away any spoilers.

I’ll be heading off to school in a little while so I’d better stop here.

Hope you’ve all been having a wonderful month.

I’m so happy the snow is finally melting! I’m having a great week. Life is pretty great…especially since I had chocolate milk and a muffin for breakfast today. Now nothing can go wrong!

 

May the force be with you,
