Novel Writing Discussion

I’m not sure why colored pens make me so delighted but they do. So I’m going through the second part of my book and adding in little details. Sometimes I wonder if adding those details right now is a waste of time but I ignore that voice knowing if I’m gunna have to scrap a section, that I’m just gunna have to scrap it details and all.

But you know what I enjoy about writing a novel size story? I enjoy that I can move to another part of the book for a long enough time to let that other half marinate. lol So when I’ve edited one section to what feels like oblivion, I just move on to the other half of the book. Keeps me connected with the story and doesn’t burn me out.

On a fun note

As an experimental fiction author I get excited about how we can get my product out to the readers (when it’s time).

I saw that Kindle has this new series option. So authors can release sections of their story over a period of time. I really do love that idea. It’s accessible and creative. And people like me who read blogs regularly and appreciate small bits at a time will benefit from it.

I’m not sure exactly how I’m going to release the book. But I definitely want to take advantage of some innovative options.

Do you think about different ways you can get your writing out there? Do you prefer all the traditional avenues?

Some thoughts on the novel

My main character is on her hero’s journey. What’s interesting is the hero’s journey is a very solitary affair. How can we all say yes to the journey while juggling so much? In the book I have to remove my main character from all her duties so that she can take the time she needs to blossom into the higher self she was always meant to be. I do wish it didn’t take some traumatic removal for us to finally hear the call or see the door. That’s something Christian’s mentor also struggles with.

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

  1. I too am a sucker for colored pens! I have too many all over the house. Instead of doing details I find that if I have my favorite color a lot of time this makes me write more (not necessarily better). I need to check out the Amazon publishing bit you mentioned. I might try that myself. Thanks!

    1. Haha you get it! This comment makes me smile. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a magic pen that made us write better. lol But hey we have the joy of writing with colored pens. I think that something to be proud of. I’m glad you shared your mutual love for colored pens with me. It brightened up my day.
