Writing A Novel


writingnovel

Well I have officially started planning my novel, yeah ‘planning’, not really got pen to paper or words to a page just yet… I keep changing my mind on things about my story and the characters. I really want to start writing it but I know that there is something about my story that doesn’t quite click with me. I have the basic plot of my story and I know how the narration is going to be. I even have a title, whether that changes during the process I don’t know but I think it’s the perfect title at the moment.

I’m getting a little bit of writer’s block and being a Gemini I bounce from one project to another.. which is a problem when you need to commit to writing a novel! I know that when I have no distractions, no uni work and nothing else to take up my time I will sit down with my laptop and just start to write… probably complete nonsense at first!!

Redrafting and editing will take a very long time, I’m aware of that but I would like to have my first chapter at least a first draft before the end of April. If I set myself a goal I am more likely to strive to achieve it. In the meantime, I have lots of uni work to complete, books to read and other things to balance in my busy life at the moment.

I just hope that I actual start writing this novel, it’s something I want to do and it’s something I feel have to do! Writing a novel isn’t easy, I know this and I haven’t even got the first word written yet! Any advice on how to get started?
