Shifting into High Gear

Lately I’ve been somewhat restless – sure I’ve gotten my sleep at night, but I’ve been itching to do something – in literary terms. I’ve been wanting to get back to my writing and finally finish one of my many “work-in-progress” novels, then get it published – no matter how long it takes. I suppose it’s the lack of momentum that is keeping me in a rut, and to truly achieve the momentum needed, I have to get back to writing each day.

My first big-time writing project sprouted from an idea I had in 8th Grade, as well as a short story I drafted for a school assignment about the same time. After working on it for years, I finally ended the story back in 2010 or late 2009, though it was without much satisfaction – considering it didn’t meet up to the standards I wanted it to. My second project, and the one I wish to resume, was originally released as serials on InheritanceForums.com,  which I discovered was most likely my best work of the time. After releasing a few serials, I stopped posting them on the website and made a quick choice to turn it into a novel. To this day I only have about 10 pages or so written of it, not including the various chapters I’ve drafted here and there – then tossed when they didn’t seem to suit the tone I was trying to create. Next, next week I hope to officially take on this project with a full-throttle, one-way, nonstop perspective. Then we’ll see where I go from there.

As for blogging! I may post occasional updates as to my writing pursuits, although I’ll mainly be posting reviews for Scorpia Rising, the Nintendo 3DS, and finally catching up on the Weekly Photo Challenge.

Thanks for reading!
