Okay, so I've done this a few times here before, I've also down Beautiful People on my old writing blog, and the NaNo version Beautiful Books. If you don't know it's ran by Cait and Sky and it's super fun and perfect for writers and I've decided I'm going to start doing it every month not only because it's awesome but also because I'm going to try to post once a week about writing this year and this fits perfectly!
Anyway! This month is awesome because it's basically new years resolution based questions! Let's do this.
1. What were your writing achievements last year? novels and spent a good eight months working on perfecting my main novel.
2. Tell us about your top priority writing project for this year?
3. List 5 areas you’d like to work the hardest to improve this year. Setting and world building, I'm horrible at setting which is one of the main things wrong with Dragon Heir right now, it's set on this huge amazing world that I never really describe in the actual book. I'd like to get better at writing effective plot the first time through. Plot is where I really struggle, honestly. I would like to get better at short stories. I tend to start them and then forget all about them. I really need to work at not being afraid to go back to fantasy, fantasy was the first thing I wrote and then I kind of abandoned it and haven't touched it since. I also need to work on my characters ages in that I tend to have them not act their age a lot, if that makes sense.
April and July Camp NaNoWriMo as well as regular NaNo in November.
Do you have plans to read any writer-related books this year? Or are there specific books you want to read for research?
Pick one character you want to get to know better, and how are you going to achieve this?
Do you plan to edit or query, and what’s your plan of attack?
Toni Morrison once said, “If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” What are the books that you want to see more of, and what “holes” do you think need filling in the literary world?
Please, leave me all the links below so I can see your posts and writers, let's talk! What are you working on? Do you find yourself with way more first drafts than seconds?
