From the posts I’ve come across discussing whether book bloggers like writing as well as reading, the answer seems to be yes, a lot of book bloggers love to write as well. And I don’t mean they just like to write posts because that would be a stupid thing to say because there’d be no point in being a book blogger. Unless you didn’t write the posts…and just posted pictures…
But anyway, the reason I wrote this post is because I have decided that I’m going to put way more time towards writing a novel. It might be hard, with school, blogging and all, but it’s something I’d really like to do – so why not?
I have been trying to write a novel since I was about 6. No exaggeration. I think it was handwritten and about 3 pages long, including a cover page. What was it about? Apples. Yes, apples. I wrote a slightly longer one when I was eight and from then on I just kept going. In more recent times, I have tried to write four 80,000+ words novels. My best one was actually the first where I wrote half a first draft. Then I had another idea and started writing that one. That just keeps happening. I have a fifth in mind. But, believe it or not, I’m going back to the third one.
I have been thinking about it and planning every single little detail. And I think I’m ready. No, not to run an Olympic race (yeah, I totally just made it sound like that).
So, my question for you, lovely followers, is a) do you write and b) have you every tried writing a novel? Advice would be appreciated 🙂
