Challenges

One of my biggest challenges as a writer is writing anything shorter than a novel. I think it’s because I tend to think about a lot of things I would really like to add to my stories. I like to see myself as a complicated writer, not that it’s a good thing because it has its downsides. I really admire those who can fill around a hundred words with so much life and a backstory to fill the imagination. I think of short stories and flash fiction as a challenge than a weakness. I believe it takes a great deal of skill to write those, not that writing a novel takes any less skill. We all have our own skills and preferences.

So, I believe I’m a novelist by nature. I’d prefer to just read flash fiction and short stories.

Do what you can to make a difference and inspire.

Getting Ready For…

…6 weeks of a hectic Summer Semester. I’ll be back in the hospital for one of my subjects. It will be a great venue for new experiences and hopefully new ideas, not that I feed off the ill for my personal gain. I love being a nurse. I doubt I will be able to post much in the next weeks, with shifts at the hospital, a research I have to do, exams, requirements, and the fact that I have Statistics as a subect I hope to maintain my writing schedule even if it will not be that extensive. I am currently working on pieces that I hope to enter in a national competition, which will make my to-do list even longer (and it’s due before April 30!). I will post whenever I get the chance. This will be one of my adventures this summer and I hope everything will go well.

Be inspired everyone!

Changing Location.

No, I’m not moving somewhere. I’m talking about when I’m writing and working on my stories and novels. For the past three days, I’ve been stuck in my room and writing to no end (while simultaneously working on some other stuff, like watching TV shows and movies). Now I’m on my sixth day of writing. I started feeling stuck when I was on my fourth day and I tried it out.

I’m sure many of us felt something like this at one point or another. Well, I found a very simple solution, which anyone can do. Look for another place in your house or wherever you are to write. It gives you a sense of change and new energy. It sounds ineffective and I was a bit skeptic of it, but it really did work. I was able to add a couple thousand to my word count.

Well, we all have our own ways of making our creativity flow stronger and clearer.

Be inspired and inspire!

Vacation Time!

All my final school work is officially over. This is my signal to get back to writing, writing, and writing. I love this feeling because I can get all this pent up stress out and on paper. I’ve got 3 weeks to get a lot of writing done. I’m hoping to be inspired the whole time.

Be inspired and inspire others! 🙂

End of a Semester

Well, I’ll be having my last exam today before my semestral break. I’ve got no classes for about 2 weeks before I face a hectic summer back in the hospital and taking care of patients.

Luckily, I’ll be using these 2 weeks to de-stress and write tons. Hopefully, if my muse will permit, I need to reach half of my expected book length. This means I need to get about 6 or 7 chapters written in 14 days. Oh well, I’ll have to see where it takes me.

Be inspired everyone!

My First!

After more than 2 months of waiting, I got my first rejection letter. I know many budding writers would feel a pang of disappointment, but I feel hyper and more energized to write. I’m just really happy they took the time to read it. My chance will come in time. I believe it will.

Happy writing everyone! Be inspired as always!

Amidst All the Chaos.

I survived the month of February. It was a hell of a month. I barely had time to just sit and eat or sleep. Things went screwy and my stress was off the charts. Life kept backhanding me almost everyday. Well, I’m glad I survived.

Last month, I experienced, for the second time, someone giving me a book I’ve been wanting and being too busy to even just open it. Avid readers know what kind of torture that is, but hopefully, I can finally read it this month.

I finished the apparent 15% of one of my books in the works. I’m crazy for having 4 ongoing books all at the same time. This really defeats my rule to only having 2 ideas at a time. Oh well. It does help me defeat my writer’s block though, so it’s not so bad.

Have a great March.

Keep writing writers and future published authors! Stay inspired and always inspire.
