Day One

I can’t believe, after not being able to fall asleep until after midnight…but being in bed trying, rather than being up doing something, I actually got up shortly after my alarm went off at 0400, and brought my laptop back to bed with me and started writing my Nano Novel. I wrote the first chapter, and logged more than 2,000 words in, which had been my goal. I will print it off and take it to work with me today, and see what I can do to improve it.

I did it! I achieved my writing goal for today.

My inspiration seems to come a tiny piece at a time, day after day. The focus for this blog is going to be: My Journey from Writer to Author. We all know there’s a difference. An author is published. A writer? Maybe not.

I’ve been working on my first novel for a little over 3 years now. I started writing it on Oct. 3,2008, and believe me, it has really morphed from the first concept.I was thinking of another concept to bring in last night, so I only got about 4 hours of sleep. Oh well. The basic story is in place now, but some of the supporting or secondary characters are going to be antagonists instead of supporters. Especially one prime character that is important to the protagonist. And one minor character (sort of) is going to start out an antagonist and she turns out to be an ally in the end.

This has already been quite a journey, but there’s much to go until I see this book in print. I believe it has great potential, and I believe in my talent. I also believe in my determination and drive. Currently, I am continuing to type the messy first draft back into my laptop in a nice, neat format. I’m actually a very fast typist, but I get sleepy after awhile…just like reading. Not because I’m bored, but I’m sleep deprived usually to begin with, and focusing my eyes on a screen or page for a long time makes me drowsy.

It’s time for me to leave for work. Like most writers, I have to have a day job to support my habit:)
