Hi guys. It’s past midnight as I begin today’s post. I won’t write much, since I have to be up early at 7:45am tomorrow.
Today, I made a breakthrough in brainstorming for my first novel. I won’t spoil the deets just yet, but the only thing I’ll say is, within the next year-and-a-half before grad school, keep an eye out for not one, but THREE of my books on the shelves!
Was rewatching the movie “Divergent” earlier tonight, for what’s gotta be the third time. I’m so inspired by the part of the movie where Tris is training to become integrated into the Dauntless faction. Stage 1 of training, aka physical combat, is especially difficult for her, since she has a small build with little to no muscle. But she fights her way through and exemplifies bravery on so many counts. It’s inspiring, truly.
I’ve been reading a lot of articles lately on how to become a published author. They say that it’s very possible for a blog to be turned into a book; however, it’s not as simple as stringing together all your blog posts in an incoherent fashion. There needs to be a central theme and a solid structure and plot to drive home that theme.
The path to getting your book published is not easy, and most people who dream of writing a book end up never doing it. I will not be one of those people.
Excited to keep you guys posted, and as always, I hope you guys are doing well.
