Some people have asked me whether I’ll be participating in August’s Camo NaNoWriMo competition after successfully completing the challenge well before time last month, I know Laura is taking part this month because she’s a writing machine, I on the other hand am not.
Who would have thought a year ago I’d be talking about writing my SECOND novel?! Let alone my first, since the completion of Twist of Hate I have yet to even edit it. If anyone is willing to have a go at it for me let me know and I’ll send it you to look at even if you just want to read it, I’ll probably get around to it sooner or later I just haven’t had the drive to do it yet. I want to read it with fresh eyes and forget about everything I’ve written then attempt to have a crack at it.
Twist Of Hate probably isn’t good enough for a publisher to even look at, it’s probably not even good enough to be self published, but *shrugs* maybe I’m just overly critical of my work due to me not having confidence in my own writing.
Plus August is likely to be a busy month, I should hopefully have a job by the time August rolls around, it’s my birthday (ugh) in 9 days and I have Leeds Festival towards the end of August, not a good month overall to be writing.
I’ll most likely attempt to write my second novel during the NaNoWriMo in November, the second one I need to plan out carefully, I have so many ideas constantly running through my head, I need to start writing them down. The tentative title of the novel is Ascensionem De Insania (Ascension Of Insanity) and will be based on the series of short stories entitled Insanity’s Ascension which I wrote for one of Jame’s literary blogs. Be sure to read them and let me know what you think!
Since writing them I have thought about how cool it could be to transform it into a full novel, not too long enough I have a lightbulb moment of how I could and hopefully develop the story into a full fledged novel, this time though I don’t want to stop it at 50,000 words, I want to make it longer, I want it to be around the 80,000-90,000 mark so I need to plan it extensively before I attempt to write it in November to ensure I finish it in the 30 day alloted time.
Then once it’s published it’s going to be bigger than any 50 Shades of Shit book, I shall become a millionaire, I’ll buy you all a McDonalds and continue blogging from my private Island somewhere in the middle of nowhere.
…A man can dream.
