So I don’t know if I have ever mentioned this before, but one of the reasons I started writing a blog was to help me get better with my writing skills.
Well because for the longest time I have wanted to write books that one day will be published. I have written many stories in my life time and even currently I have a least four stories on the go. But there is one story I am currently writing that I have been staying true to since the moment the story popped into my head.
I have been so focused on getting this story written that I have actually gone to a writing class before now and have even done research into one of the locations mentioned in the story.
The story is a murder mystery set across two time lines with only one connection.
I was so excited while I was originally writing it, that I got swepted up in the story only to then find out certain elements of the story didn’t fit with the time the story is set, so back to the drawing board I have gone and now its turned into something I wasn’t expecting.
You see my process/style is I’m one of those who sits at the computer and just lets the words flow out automatically, if the wording isn’t correct to the period I can alter that later, sometimes I write a whole section that makes no sense only to then scrap it. But I am thinking I might do a vision board of my story to help me get an idea of where I want it to go, I already have my beginning and end its just the interesting middle bit that I need a more clear focus on.
I admire past writer like Jane Austen and the Bronte Sisters because of just everything. The were in a time where women were not allowed to write, they had to write by candle light and use old school ink and paper, man what I would give to be able to see there early ideas all scribbled down 🙂
The reason I am telling you this is because, well I want to bring you along on this journey of mine to one day be published. 🙂
(I hope I do get this story published one day, as it would be amazing to see my creation on shelves)
