I left a comment on her blog post “Tell me about what you’re writing” that I think works as a blog post.
Whether it’s a novel, a memoir, an essay, a song, a poem. What’s it about? What inspired it? How are you finding the writing process? Are you going to try and get it published? Are you afraid of sharing your work with others, or are you an old hand at this? Share the first line, or a little blurb, or the best/worst part of the writing process so far.
And I left this comment:
What’s it about?
I’m busy writing a novel about a vampire hunter who wants to avenge her family’s death. When the opportunity to do both that and save humans kidnapped by Vladislav and his colony, she grabs it. With a huge amount of other hunters, as well as a two “good” vampires (who kill with the sole purpose of feeding), she will do whatever it takes to save those humans and finally get revenge. Unfortunately, she’s walking on the fine line between justice and vengeance and if she’s not careful, she could die before succeeding.
What inspired it?
I was inspired by Twilight, which represented not only vampires as wimps, but also its protagonist. My vampires are badass and so is my protagonist.
How are you finding the writing process?
I’m loving it, although for the first 2 years, I didn’t accomplish much. I had trouble finishing my novels.
Are you going to try and get it published?
I don’t know yet, but I love writing it and that’s all I care about for the moment. (Also, if the only people who read it my family and friends and they love it, that’ll be good enough for me.)
Are you afraid of sharing your work with others, or are you an old hand at this?
It depends, sometimes I am, sometimes I’m not. But I have posted my stories on Fiction Press before without fear. (Though not recently, because I wanted to actually finish my novels before posting them.)
Share the first line, or a little blurb, or the best/worst part of the writing process so far.
First line: Morana had spent hours hunting down a vampire belonging to a particular tribe or pack or whatever they called it, so she wasn’t about to let this vampire escape.
My blurb is at the beginning of this comment.
-writing 6000 words the last day of NaNoWrimo
-Getting a review (on Fiction Press) that makes me squeal with joy when I’d spend the entire day depressed
-Writing and being so caught up with it that I don’t notice the sun rising
-This will sound weird, but: that feeling when I haven’t written in days. It makes me realize just how I LOVE writing. (Absence really DOES make the heart grow fonder.)
-Being on a roll
-Realizing I’m growing as a writer and have learned to discipline myself to write everyday
-Being completely immersed in your novel
Worst moment: Not writing.
- School: It (school) is crushing the life out of me! I feel like I’m drowing in homework and I’m so tired that when I got home yesterday, at twenty past two, I spent 3 hours not doing anything important. Why? I was just too damn tired. For next week, I have French research thing, English homework, a test or two (could end up being three) and a LOT of Geography homework that was supposed to be for tomorrow but was pushed back. (Hallelujah!) The only teacher who notices how tired we are is my science teacher. (Even she’s surprised at how tired we are. She’s a teacher!)
- Writing: Didn’t write anything yesterday because of aforementioned exhaustion. Today is better. *eyes widened* Oh shit, it’s almost 9 PM and I still have to shower and do 3 physics exercises. And tomorrow I have sport. *growls in the manner of Dr Cox* Shoot me. Shoot me NOW.
