I tell you what, writing is hard. Well, putting words down on a piece of paper or on your hard drive might not be so difficult, but actual, good writing is hard.
I’m currently working on the third rough draft of my novella. Many changes are being made. It’s a tad tedious, but I am enjoying the process, and I love the story. My hope is that if it’s fun to write, it’ll be fun to read.
I’ve found that listening to music while I write helps, though this may not be for every author. Depending on the scene I’m writing, I’ve been listening to: Loreena McKennitt, Sisters of Mercy, The Chameleons UK, Disturbed, Florence and the Machine, and Ennio Morricone. An odd mix, I know, but it’s a strange story I’m telling.
I hope you are all well!
First of all, all hail George Miller, the director of Mad Max: Fury Road. Otherwise known as the Finest Film Of All Time. Whether you are a writer, an actor, a painter, or any type of artist, his inspiration is transcendent it its influence.
Welcome to the website! I’ll be keeping you updated with this strange journey I’ve begun as a writer. Stay tuned for details.
Currently, I am in the midst of editing the second rough draft of a novella I’ve written. I’m also working on the second draft of a short story, and formulating an outline for a ridiculous tale that might get me sued.
I’ll keep you posted!
