Wannabe Writers is a meme created by Sarah of Confessions of the Un-published!
One of my goals right now is to move my literary ambitions out of the box and onto the shelf, by which I mean that I no longer want to ignore how much I enjoy writing. I love the idea of this meme, and I'll quote from Sarah's post here:
I often find myself searching the web for information during my struggles as a new writer. So I wanted to start a place where us future young-adult authors can come together to ask those questions, share our stories, and get feedback.
Where I am in the writing process: Woo! I actually wrote three sentences last week! It was weird; the first one took a loooong time to get down on virtual paper.
My current problems: Energy. By the time I get everything else done for the day and have a clear head, I'm really, really tired.
Also, all of my novels seem to turn paranormal or sci-fi. It's absolutely impossible for me to write contemporary, realistic fiction. I don't know what the deal is! It's okay, I guess, since I love my paranormal, but I thought it was really strange when a ghost popped into Novel #3 (completely uninvited).
Question(s) this week: I don't have a question this week, but I still wanted to keep the Wannabe Writer's going. Does anyone have a question that we could use this week?
No questions, except...how do you guys do it? Finding time to write was hard enough before, but now that I'm working full time (plus some), I just don't seem to have enough left in me at the end of the day to put my ideas into concrete words. What's your secret?
