How My Book Writing Has Been Going

Hey all! Thank you for joining to me today on my blog. I hope you’ve got a delicious beverage with you as you read this post. The right kind of beverage can really add to the moment you’re in, am I right? My top beverage of choice for writing still is English breakfast tea. But without further adieu!

I’ve started the first chapter of my comedy story, but I’m still doing some brain storming and idea searching. I won’t give away the premise yet, but stay tuned! It will be the first funny novel I’ll ever write. Despite my love of laughter and light moments, my stories can be pretty dark and brooding at times. I thought it would be fun to switch gears and make light of a certain environment I’ve spent a lot of time in. I promise you it’ll be funny with lots of laughs.

I’m over half way finished with a historical fiction novel about a shepherdess surviving in ancient Israel. Her journey as the story progresses is incredible and as I’ve been working on it, it’s amazing to see how far stories can bring their main characters. It’s my classic style of an idealistic character being put in eerie and dark settings. I’m very excited about this story. While the character will go through many hardships, she also experiences many lovely moments and I promise you it’ll be a satisfying read. I’ve always been attracted to survivalist stories and they’re fun to write. While I’d never want to be in that situation, it’s interesting to imagine how you or someone like you might react when placed in certain scenarios and how you might overcome it. My writing process has been steady – I’m 24 chapters in and very excited it about it being closer to the finish line! There will be, of course, a lot of editing and rework to do. But that’s when the real fun begins. I love editing.

I’ll be giving you more details to follow about my two stories. πŸ™‚ I’m hoping to publish both of them this year.

What are you working on right now? Do tell in the comments below.

  1. Good luck with your writing. I’m just starting to edit my latest novel. Unlike you, I am not fond of editing. I can’t seem to spot something wrong even if it is staring me right in the face.

  2. It’s neat that you’re writing what sounds to be two really different stories. And awesome that you’re excited about the historical fiction one! I hope that energy continues as you work on the stories πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Sara, I am always impressed by those that can weave complex stories and turn them into great novels. I have aspirations for something more like a magazine. I am thinking about bringing back the street Zines that I remember for NYC. I don’t know if they still exist, but you used to love picking up the underground music Zines when going to see the punk rock shows. My version would be less music and more nature oriented. Hmm, not sure that would work. Anyways, great stuff!

  4. Would love to follow your blog, but it doesn’t recognize my email address. Are you on Instagram? Do you have a Facebook page?

  5. Btw, have you ever thought about publishing your work via Amazon’s Kindle contest? As for beverages, coffee in the morning (with a shot of instant), and something harder at night!

    • Right? I find it hard, too. I think what attracted me to writing was the need to write eerie, dark tales lol. But I think it would be fun to switch it up. We’ll see how it goes. πŸ™‚ Happy writing to you, Sally!
