#WritingANovel: Preparation for Plotters and Pantsters.

I’m way more a pantster than a plotter. But it makes sense. A hell lot of sense.

Alison Williams Writing

“It’s a job, not a hobby. You don’t write the way you build a model airplane. You have to sit down and work, to schedule your time and stick with it. Even if it’s just for an hour or so each day, you have to get a babysitter and make the time. If you’re going to make writing succeed, you have to approach it as a job.”
Rosellen Brown 

 So you’re ready to write your novel? You’ve got an idea burning away at the back of your mind that you can’t get rid of. Characters keep popping up, talking to you, urging you to write their story. But the notebook’s blank, the computer screen‘s white. You’re hesitating over that first line. How do you get prepared?

Well, that rather depends on whether you’re a plotter or a pantster!

Friends and Making Friends: 11 Realizations

I’m not talking about Friends as in the TV series. I’m talking about real life friends and friendships. As I near the end of high school (in my country at least) I know that I may not have exhausted my ability or willingness to make friends just yet, but I also know that I have most certainly lost the momentum I gained just a couple of years ago. In retrospect, I’ve had two of the best years spent with my bestest friends yet. Guys, they say if you can be friends for 7 years straight, nothing can tear you apart.

Random Tidbits

This post was pretty solid in my head. Now that I come to it though, it’s not much of a post. Not at this moment at least.

My last post, 9 People Who Feed My Well of Words, came up on the 5th of April. Almost a month ago. I remember promising to come up with a post at least once a week, but I’ve lost momentum. Again. This is the third time I think.

Now I’ll tell you the reason, dear reader, of my disappearance of late. My O level exams, seemingly the most important examination of my life yet, are starting the day after tomorrow, and I have been doing my best to stay off the internet and study. Not that it works all the time, but I think I’m good to go at the moment.I have 10 subjects and the entire syllabus will take almost one and a half month to finish.

Keep me in your prayers.

Meanwhile, I’ll be coming up with some plans for future blog posts. Stay tuned.
