Book in Progress — Part Ten: Love triangles are confusing…

Hello readers! I'm baaaack!!! *maniacal laugh* Here's a little life lesson for ya... When you know that you don't handle caffeine very well don't drink coffee before bed. It's 11pm and though I finished my coffee hours ago, my hands are shaking as I write this. Physically I'm tired, but mentally I can't shut up … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Ten: Love triangles are confusing…

Book in Progress — Part Nine: When Plot Holes turn into Canyons

It's time for another edition of Book in Progress! If you missed the last one I really recommend you go check it out, but I'll give you the rundown.

Book in Progress — Part Eight: New beginnings. New Stress

I debated on calling this "Book in Progress vol.2" because I STARTED A NEW BOOK! And. I. Hate. It. Not the story itself, exactly. More like I hate the process of writing the first draft. You know, I used to think my least favorite part of the writing process was outlining. Yeah, no. I HATE … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Eight: New beginnings. New Stress

The time I almost gave up on Writing

And this is why I don't tell many people I'm a creative writer. I had a teacher back in my freshman year of high school, and during an assignment, I mentioned that I wanted to be an author. I don't tell most people this because I know most of them won't take me seriously. I … Continue reading The time I almost gave up on Writing

Book in Progress — Part Six: Time Warp

I'm having a crisis. A mental break down or something. Nothing makes sense anymore. What is my book? What is a book? What is life? What am I doing here? I have no idea. I've re-read this project so many times, it doesn't make sense anymore. I feel like I'm in a time warp. My … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Six: Time Warp

Book in progress: part five — A little bit about my book & dealing with doubt

To celebrate finishing my first draft, I want to share a little bit about my book with you! And by a little bit, I mean the bare minimum that you probably already know. Sorry, I've had a lifetime fear of being plagiarized, but that's another story for another time. Like any good project, it needs … Continue reading Book in progress: part five — A little bit about my book & dealing with doubt

Book in Progress — Part Four: I think you are know what this is about

You know the writers who will finish their book with almost 200,000 words? Yeah, that's not me. Currently my novel is a novella. But, hey, I finished!!! This is the first time I've ever finished a project of this size! I started my second draft June 13. There's something so special about being able to … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Four: I think you are know what this is about

Book in Progress — Part Three: Clock’s ticking, dude.

Hey there! Long time no read! I had my posting schedule for May all worked out, and then I decided the Adventures of a Nerd needed a makeover. Inside and out. So if you notice that a post or two is missing and a few things are rearranged, that would be why. I am also … Continue reading Book in Progress — Part Three: Clock’s ticking, dude.

Book in Progress — Part Two: Too Much Inspiration?

Hello and welcome back to the book in progress series!
