And so it begins…
The story I am writing has been on my mind for sometime and actually began it as a script a few years back, but it got shuffled into the “to-do” pile.
I reently uncovered it and changed a few details around, and started writing notes about characters and other details late last week. Read the first few paragraphs to my wife, and she cried, so I knew I was on to something.
One of my biggest obstacles is finding a place where I’m comfortable writing. I haven’t had an office set up in the house for quite sometime. It’s only been in the last few months that our youngest went off to college and late last year when I resigned my position as Shelter Director for a non-profit job to begin focusing on writing.
In the meantime, I’ve been just writing on my Chromebook, saving it to Drive, and reviewing it on my Android, and then I have a desktop, which is more multi-functional then the Chromebook. Unfortunatley so many software downloads do still require a Windows operating system. Something I wasn’t anticipating when I purchased this Chromebook. So I’m glad I have my desktop, but it means having to add everything to a cloud to make writing wherever I want wherever I want easy and then revising it on the desktop. So I am using Word, and Google Docs.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, my plan is to work on three projects at the same time, but thus far, have only began starting this novella. But hope to be on the other projects by Monday.
I wrote 3000 words today, which isn’t a lot for me personally, but when I get on a role I’ll be doing much better than that.
But so far, I’m feeling good. I’m getting back into shape, mentally. Like riding a bike.
Until tomorrow, much love and respect to all of you…..Chad
