So in the past month, I’ve been writing in my novel. I hope that my new found motivation to write weekly continues. I have been inspired by listening to a playlist in my ipod. It comprises of artists such as Kelis, Michael Jackson, Childish Gambino, BoA, Foo Fighters, Sade, Clipse, and a few others.
Music inspires me because it creates this feeling much like nostalgia. It pushes my creativity and makes it flow. I have been going to this wonderful place called Tsutaya in my town. I get there early like 9am to beat the rush of people. I get me a matcha frappuccino and sit in bliss. The goal is 3 hours. Last week I did two days back to back with 2 and a half hours each. Today, I did 3 full hours!
The downside of this is sitting for so long. If it weren’t for nerve issues within my back due to sitting too long then I would do about 5 hours! I was really going today and felt great! I notice that if I do this every week, then I could complete many chapters and make my goal of finishing by January!
I don’t want to push too hard as I don’t want garbage. Quality is key and re-writing my novel proves to be beneficial to fleshing out the story and characters.
I’m eager to have it published by April of next year. Then I can go back to my science fiction novel I started in 2005. I also have a horror novel and science horror novel I want to write. However, they must be on the shelf in my mind while I work on the current book.
I feel really good and unstoppable in my quest to accomplish my goals. Please stay tuned! Once I finish my current book and copyrite it, you bet your bottom dollar that I will have a few chapter samples for you to read before the finished product comes out!
