Hello guys and welcome to another chapter of I’m Wittier in Writing!
For those who don’t know I’m Wittier In Writing is a post fortnightly meme created by yours truly just to share my trials and tribulations that might have happened over the past two weeks connected to my writings. I just this might be a good place to express my feelings over my writing experience and hopefully these might be a little bit relatable.
Here is the previous chapter if you want to check it out: I’m Wittier In Writing- Chapter 1: Suffocation, Frustration and Inspiration?
I don’t read a lot of poems. That’s probably a bad thing considering what I’m going to say next but it’s true. I don’t read poems. So why do I want to write them? That’s a tricky question for myself to answer. So as you guys know I’ve been editing my NaNoWriMo novel when I get the spare time and I few days ago while I was editing it a thought clicked into my head- what if this was a poem? I hope this doesn’t sound too crazy but I really believe in this idea. What I know is that I want this story to be told, but I’m not sure if I want it to be told in novel form. I’ll probably have to experiment a bit before coming to a solid decision. But the cogs are turning.
I am finally writing! Remember two weeks ago when I said that I have this new novel idea kind of rolling about in my head but I was a little bit stuck about it? Probably not, but I did and I finally started writing a bit. I realised that I was getting bogged down with the idea a bit and I kind of stripped it down bare. Now I have a simple idea but loads of places to go with it and that doesn’t daunt me anymore. But I do have one little problem and it starts with the letter P. Plagarism is always a worry while writing and reading! I don’t want to have a really good idea in my head and then stumble upon a book that has already fulfilled that idea. The thing that I am writing now doesn’t seem familiar but can easily become that book that was just like Book A or something. Hey, well at least I don’t have a strange case of writer’s block!
Writing groups, do you have one? I don’t think I want to join one as I like writing in my bed, with a hot cup of lemon water and The Hoosiers banging through my eardrums. Not siting still and being on my best behaviour and making sure I am politically correct when speaking. I guess it’s a good thing to get instant feedback as well though I doubt how genuine it is going to be as you are only sitting a centimeters away from the person. I would love to know your view on them!
Those are all of my thoughts at the moment! Feel free to comment down below about what you think of my strange musings and I’ll comment back!
I’ll write soon!
