WIP Update 12 – Writer’s Creed 1

WIPU

I actually did some writing in spite of having to overcome some tremendous obstacles I’d rather not discuss now. I added another chapter to a book I thought I finished months ago, but with the release of Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel only weeks away, Eternal Curse: Battleground was whining for some attention.

After that some of my other works started vying for my attention. I added another chapter to It’s Like the Full Moon, but that’s only after I rewrote almost half the book…I just realized that I never updated you guys on that. The last time I updated you on that story I was pretty much finished with it, but then I had a dream that I royally screwed up the ending. So I went back and rethought and rewrote quite a bit of it. Romance is so hard for me, especially since it’s not juicy romance. I have to keep it sweet; anything else from me would just sound weird.

I’ve actually jotted down some ideas for new stories, but I’m not sure what to do with them. I may try to work on some short stories and see what happens. I fear that maybe I’m hindering my own writing process by trying to write only things I feel will be good novel length stories. It’s time to put a stop to that and just write.

Here’s a little something new; I’m sure 2014 will bring in many new things. I’ve taken on this writers creed and here is my first update on the matter…

It’s my first month so I don’t feel too bad about not keep up 100% with the creed. It’s been a rough few weeks for me and I’ve been able to stay on top of things, but it’s taking its toll in other ways. I’m a blogger for life, so I’m sure I’ll have plenty of chances to live of the creed in the months and years to come.

Do you have a WIP update to share? Do you want to take on the Writer’s Creed 2014?

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords

    1. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. I think I’m just going through a rough time because I need to, as crazy as that sounds. I believe, for the most part, that everything happens for a reason. But I can’t wait for this season of struggle to be over.

What are your thoughts?
