I’m going to start writing about some things on my bucket list (completely cliché?). However, having it written down and posted for everyone to see will be good motivation for me. Now what is it that is number one on my bucket list?
Writing a book.
This idea has been on my bucket list for about 7 years now. Do you want to know how close I have been to completing it? 35 pages. You can’t imagine how proud I was that I had 35 pages of a story written. What’s happening with that, you ask? It has been chilling in my documents folder for about 4 years. Such Progress, right? Along with that I have many “Idea #_” that are saved.
It’s the same process that happens every time I think of a new idea. I always get completely enthralled in the story. I make a little outline, play out the opening scene. I literally will think about this story constantly. Then, I sit down to write it. This is where my plan crumbles. I feel like I have such good ideas, but I never know where to start.
Once I tried to solve this problem by saying my story. I got out my voice recorder and I tried to say what I was going to write. Let me tell you, I felt so awkward, and it did not help at all! I thought the process would be faster, that I could say what I was thinking, but I still was caught up on all the details. Needless to say, this was very frusterating. Although, my roommate, Jenna, got some amusement out of it.
As some of you might know, I love books. Love them, I could buy one book each day and be completely happy…poor, but happy. It would be such an incredible feeling to see something that I created sitting on my shelf, next to my favorite book series.
I’m semi-holding everyone reading this responsible! Does anybody know of any writing ideas? I can use all the help I can get!
