Hey everyone, how are you?
Today I am going to be writing and hitting the laptop hard as there are things that I want to achieve.
I have writing that I want to do today on the book chapter. On Friday, I finished reading an academic journal and it has given me many ideas of how I can use it to analyse my own mental health narrative. I am really excited by this and want to get the ideas down on paper and draft something that I can type up at the start of next week. So, I am going to be hitting the writing hard today, also, having a chill day yesterday really helped as it allowed me to sit and refocus on what needs to be done. Although the writing is academic, rather than fiction, I find that I can allow myself to be creative in my writing style. But also keeping it within the academic language that is required. I am missing writing fiction though, it has been a few weeks as I am on a deadline for the book chapter.
This being said, if I get a chance to sit and write some fiction, either on the novel or the short story that I started then I will be jumping onto it. I still have the characters bouncing around in my head and how I want them to appear on paper. One book that I read recently by Angie Thomas about writing gave some good ideas about how to develop your characters and how to mould them to what you want them to be. I am going to go back to this book and use it over and over again to help with the novel and short story. If you haven’t read her first two novels “The Hate U Give” and “On The Come Up” then I’d highly recommend them. I cannot wait for her next book “Concrete Rose” which is coming out sometime next year.
I also will be reading a lot today as well, as I am aiming to finish the self-help book. I want to review it for my other blog and get it online as soon as possible. I will have less than a hundred and fifty pages left by the time that this blog goes live at midnight. I could write the review now given that I have read the majority of the book, but that’s not how I like to do things. I’d like to finish the book before I make my final opinions on it. I have missed having a fiction book to sit and read as the two books that I am currently reading are non-fiction. But I have some books coming in the post soon. And I still have the massive pile of books at the end of my bed that still need to be read as well.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
