Hey everyone, how are you?
This weekend is all about fiction writing as I am taking a break from the book chapter.
Yesterday I made a start on the mind maps for the new short story and it has helped to sort things out in my head. I tired to make it simple, but also make sure that I have enough information on there to trigger my memory. I am also flicking through the Angie Thomas writing book, as there was some good advice in there as well. The new short story is called “Virtual Reality” and aside from the information on the picture below that is all I am going to say about it detail wise. I can say that, I have started writing it and I am nearing the end of the first chapter. I plan to finish it off over the weekend so I can upload it next week. I B will upload it in stages as it has been a while since I uploaded a piece of writing. It feels good to be writing fiction again. I have missed it and I am looking forward to getting back into the novel as well.
Over the weekend I am also going to be writing some poetry. I have many ideas of what I want to write about and am inspired by some poets that I have seen live. I know that I will be rusty to begin with but I am hoping that it will come back to me. One poet that I have got into lately is Laura Taylor. She performed at an online festival that I attended last weekend and she is really good. That I bought one of her books. I am going to read it throughout the weekend. I also want to write more of the novel and get the mind map started for the main characters and scene settings. I think mind mapping it out will help to make things clearer for me. I also want to look over what I have written so far and see where it can be improved.
As well as getting on with my own writing throughout the weekend, I want to read some more as well. I have gotten the second book in the “Hunger Games” series; “Catching Fire.” I am looking forward to the second book. I enjoyed the first one, even though it is not a book that I would read again. It is different to what I normally read and I am intrigued on how the author is going to move the series forward. I have not seen the film adaptations so it is all new to me. So, overall, it is going to be a good and productive weekend.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
