I Live

πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹ I know I haven’t updated this page since November because I was trying to draft something and then had RL stuff kick off which interrupted my flow, then I tried to carry on drafting that something for a while but then gave up a few months ago while sat on 100k words. Soooo, seems like I’d better finish that something.

Anyway, I’ve realised that while I have no problem writing, I have a massive problem finishing stuff. And there’s not much you can do with unfinished stories. I literally have an 80k manuscript that’s incomplete and 100% abandoned, a 100k manuscript that’s incomplete but don’t want to abandon and a start to something new. The latter two I’ve decided to post on inkitt along with the old GD and TWW manuscripts. I won’t be writing sequels to them, unfortunately, but they’re both reposted up there. Along with recent unfinished work. I know inkitt have a publishing contest but I’m not interested in that bit. But from what I’ve seen, you aren’t obliged to enter? Just going to treat it like some portfolio, record of writing thing and see if I have a slightly better experience on there than I did on that other place. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ


Cheerleaders and verbal abusers to help me finish stuff is much, much appreciated.

  1. I’ll definitely be checking out your stories on Inkitt! Also, is the problem that you don’t have an outline? Or do you not have an ending in mind when writing?

    1. Nope, everything is always outlined with an ending in mind. Sometimes outlines cause plot problems for me if they’re too “tight” or they make me lose the excitement. It’s doubt that’s the problem. What’s the point of finishing this? It’s sh*t anyway. No one will like it. The ending won’t be good. It will be a let down. It’s not good enough to publish. What’s the point of writing anyway? *Decides to end writing career before it even begins* *finds a new shiny a week later* *starts writing again* *looks at old, ‘almost-finished’ project and sighs*


    1. I’m finishing off The Last Petal to Fall ATM which I have 100k for (length of TWW) and then I’ll be working on Blossom and Blood which I have a 15k start on πŸ™‚

  2. Hey!
    Join the club..
    In five decades of scribbling, I wasted a forest (and later hard drive estate). Never published because I never finished anything.
    Please do better.
    Or not.
    Have a good day!

    1. Yeahhh, I’ve just been busy with offline RL stuff really. And still busy through this summer with my Master’s and then teaching qualification, but I’m trying to do my best to get some writing done. I’ve been quite bad at consistency lately because of being so busy but I’m hoping posting online will help me
