Being A Writer

Hello, everyone!

This is just a quick little thing I was thinking about.

I was reading a blog post, and it said it contained book spoilers. So I went to work on my WorldBuilding board instead. (More about that in another post.)

I started writing down some stuff that would need to be built upon at the end of the story. Then I started thinking about that blog post again. I really wanted to read the character study, but it spoiled the ending. Then I started thinking about any spoilers that might’veΒ been in MY blog post. (Thankfully, there were none πŸ˜€ ) But…

If you want to be a good writer, you need to be invested in your story idea. You need to feel something. You have to hang on to your every word, feel as if you are standingΒ right nextΒ to your character. If you don’t want to read to the end of the book, chances are, no one else will either. But, the downside of being so invested in your book…

You already know the ending to your book.

I know, I know. This is what I signed up for. But have you ever been reading in your book, you’re really into it, wanting to figure out what happens next…

But you already know.

This is always a big letdown to me. I know it might soundΒ silly, but if your writing is good,Β IΒ wouldn’t want it spoiled. Even though I am the writer, and I brought them to life, I just don’t like knowing what’s going to happen in advance.

Has this ever happened to you? Comment!

  1. These are so funny! I agree especially with the pie chart…I always end up doing ANYTHING but writing…the cruel fact of life (which is why when my mum asks why I’m blogging instead of working on my book, I turn suddenly speechless)

  2. Wow… so so so so so true!!!! :O πŸ˜€ Actually….. I probably don’t always know the ending for my books…cause I’m one that doesn’t often plan out the ending! :O :O :O XD Haha!!! πŸ™‚ I loved the quotes! πŸ˜‰ I can relate… πŸ˜›

                    1. novellas are stories too!
                      Fine, I could see how if you were being finicky that wouldnt count.

                    2. *points to the fact that only one of those is finished* πŸ˜‰

                      I just found out that technically The Lady of the Vineyard is in the “novelette” category. Go figure. I guess 14,000 wasn’t good enough for those uppity novellas … oh well. I continue to call it a novella anyway.

                      Well, if you come across a place where something could be added in TLOTV, let me know. I can’t think of anything … but I’ve read it so often that I’m blinded to it. πŸ˜‰

                      i think i might actually put a character shelf/ graveyard on my site…
                      i dont know.
                      im indecisive that way.

                    6. well.. that would be cool, still! You could have it be like ” a peek inside the life of a writer” or something more catchy. Character Meet & Greet, maybe?

                    7. i am thinking of that… also, I want to redesign the menus of my blog! I really like my tagline, but it doesnt really explain my blog… so i have to fix that. 😦 nice remodel! Cant wait to read the new books!

                    8. Thanks! It’s my “election year” theme. XD #makeamericagreatagain πŸ˜‰ What I’ve been doing is going through my pages and making sure comments are enabled. XD For some reason they’re not. :/

                      Hmm ……. I don’t know what you could do, although I agree the tagline might need a little work … although mine isn’t the greatest, either. πŸ˜€ What’s wrong with your menus though?

                    9. I like your tagline and the election year aesthetic πŸ˜€ that wierd.. i dont think i;ve had that problem. I just need to reorganize/put some new stuff in my menus

                      specification: im using my IRL nickname instead of my author name. I came up with my pen name after the blog was created. so now thats another problem…
                      and the header is just me being picky πŸ™‚

                    12. Oh, yeah, I noticed that your pen name didn’t have Liv in it! I’m glad I saw that because I was gonna say something about you in the acknowledgements section of TLOTV and so … yeah. Would have been awkward if I used the wrong name. πŸ˜‰ Jk.

                    16. oh, cool! how do you balance so many projects at once?
                      i’m sure it isnt a mess! it seems like a great storyline! you could just… put all the chapters into seperate documents. it could make you feel a little less overwhelmed? I dont know.

                    17. well, i read this tip somehwere. you print it out, or use 2 screens, and literally just rewrite what you have. not actually writing, just reiterating what you’ve written
