The adventures of writing a novel.

Basically here I will post about writing my first novel (and maybe even post a chapter or two!) Uh, I guess that's all it is...

Chapter 1 has begun! My word count goal for the entire book will be 160k. I realize that seems like a lot, but I tend to write 1000-word short stories, so that's setting the bar kind of low for me.
The summary:
Trey Macklin lives in a cold, dirty apartment in a bad neighborhood in Chicago with her older brother and sister, her skittish mom, and her alcoholic dad. She has low blood pressure and faints often. She's always done that, but now she starts to have dreams that show her life from other points of view, and parts of her life she never saw.
(Yes, a lot of you thought she was in a car accident with her older sister, and went into a coma, where she had those dreams. I changed it to work better with the storyline.)

The book isn't as hilarious as the quote so far though. I got struck by inspiration and wrote the last bit of the last chapter, and it was really sad. It was good though!

Re: The adventures of writing a novel.

9:34, PM, Monday: I have a breakthrough, and actually accomplished 3/4 of a chapter.
11:20, PM, Tuesday: I delete everything I wrote yesterday. XD.
At least I polished the plot and made it easier to understand (I've never shown anyone the full plot, and it's extremely difficult to understand, even for me.)  Now if I could only figure out a beginning. XP

12:27: I practically have like 5 chapters of a Frozen/Tangled fanfic in my head, though I still have no clue what to do for the beginning of Wake. Great.

Re: The adventures of writing a novel.

The life of a writer *applauds*

I wrote chapter 16 of Loyalty first. It sometimes helps just to write what you know and want to happen and then go back and cover the beginning later.
