So I dream to write a book some day. Or more! But let’s talk about one to begin with. I have thought about starting several times and I did write a couple of pages a few times. However, I lose steam and the story just stays as a saved draft somewhere on my computer. So, I decided to try a new approach this time and just started writing snippets from the bigger story I envision – that’s the idea behind the RheaandNeal stories. I have written five pieces so far, but they don’t follow any particular order at this point.I hope to write a few more posts in this series.
I am learning to confront my fears by breaking big challenging goals into small actionable items and starting from there. In this case, rather than thinking about how I can’t write a book or no one will like it or I’ll be a terrible writer, I decided to write these small posts. If I enjoy writing and people enjoy reading these, I can keep writing either on the blog or make it into a novel. If I don’t enjoy writing or they are badly written or I get negative feedback, I would still have tried something that I have wanted to for a long time, and know that it doesn’t work out.
I have ideas about how I want to develop these characters and the story line to write a short novel on this. Have you read the RheaandNeal stories? Do you have any comments/feedback for me? Did you find their story interesting? Are they well written? Did you like/dislike something specific?
Here are the five pieces I have written so far:
