Book Writing 101

The notebook pictured above was a present I received for my 18th birthday, and I haven't stopped using it since. It's filled with blogpost ideas, other project ideas and primarily, book ideas.

I've mentioned a few times that I trying to write this book, the first of many book ideas I've had in my brain since I was 13. 

I'm going to say the obvious now, writing a book is hard! It's not a five minute task that you can leave to an evening and hope for the best, no no, it takes planning and time- and time is something I don't have lots of and desperately wish I did!

I'd love for time to stop for a week so I could solely dedicate my time towards my laptop, whether it be for this blog, the book, editing or just simply getting my thoughts out, I wish I could just be creative for a little bit and have no other worries.

One thing that I am thankful for is that I am the kind of person who needs to write an idea down when I have one, and keep thinking of that idea until it is documented somewhere and I can forget about it knowing it is written down somewhere safe, therefore I have notes on each chapter idea etc. written down, and now I just need to write the content within the chapters.

The book I am writing (really really wanted to write the name then, however I'll save it for the day that I get to announce it! (if that ever happens!) is a very honest non-fiction book. It takes a little bit longer to be 'perfect' due to being sure that everything is actually correct and non-offensive. One blogpost I have written that has a similar writing style to the said book is 'Anxiety or Confidence?', so if you want to have a read of something similar to 'the book that is currently 5% on paper/laptop and 95% in my head', then go ahead!

That's all for now, I'm off to go and do some more writing, and singing, and monologue learning, and dancing, and 'trying-to-adult' thing- I'm still learning the art of that.
