I have been a writer since elementary school, and I haven’t stopped since. I love writing novels, novellas, and short stories. I love to write about vampires, werewolves, witches, and angels. I love the supernatural and writing about that is my escape from the world. The reality is that without writing I’m not sure I would be able to survive without it. I love doing it too since it’s a form of therapy. I love writing about my experiences and sharing them with the world. It's something I do every day, and I always have a journal with me to write about the world and my experiences. It's amazing to be able to create worlds from thin air. I can do it all day, and every day since it's something that is my passion. At times when the words don't come, it can feel like work. The majority of the time it doesn't since it feels like I'm getting my feelings out. Novels allow me to write about worlds no one has ever been to, and worlds created out of thin air. I love creating characters on the page and bringing them to life. It helps me escape when the world threatens to swallow me up whole, and it helps me create characters that can combine fantasy elements with the real world. Writing is a part of my life.
Writing a novel can be easy at times, and downright frustrating. Rough drafts and rewriting is the difficult part since you have to face the blank page, and the rewriting can be hard to since you have to make sure the sentences make sense. It is hard to write a novel from start to finish, and at one point I wrote without an outline. It kept getting difficult since I was writing myself into a corner, and I had to finally write an outline to know where I was going. It is worth it in the end to have the ability to create worlds out of thin air. It does get easier with an outline, but it is hard to go from point A to B. Finding the time is an important part of the novel writing process since it takes so much to produce a novel. Sometimes the words will come, and sometimes it is like pulling teeth. The characters tell their story, and you write it down. It can be learned with enough practice, and it is worth it since it allows you to have a voice in the world. It allows you to teach lessons about life through fiction. If you’re a writer you know it since usually there is something urging you to write. Writers have to write since that is what they do. They have something to say and stories to tell. They it's their destiny to entertain people, and they are put on this earth for a reason. Writing a novel involves creating characters that will stay with people for a long time to come. It involves putting in enough man hours to finish a project to the end.
Novel writing involves creating your own world or changing the world we live in now. It is worth it in the end though. I love the novel writing process since creating novels is something I love doing. It helps me get over my past issues, and it gets rid of my anger. It makes me create real characters going through real struggles, and it is better than therapy. Whenever you’re writing a novel outline first, but don’t be surprised if it changes. Keep going and don’t stop. If you’re stuck free write or do writing exercises then keep going even if it sucks at first since there is always room to improve.
It's something I plan on doing for years to come, and I hope to be a writer the rest of my life. I also hope to have more novels and novellas out for readers to enjoy.
