Chris Rock is Writing a Book

I’m sure a lot of people have heard of Chris Rock before. He’s an American comedian, actor, writer, producer, director and countless other things I am sure, and he got his big break as a cast member on Saturday Night Live in the early 1990s.

Some people like his humour, some don’t. Personally he’s not my type, but he has some good skits that I enjoy. I wouldn’t say he’s a bad comedian at all, just more so that his style and mine don’t overlap much.

Anyways, apparently he is writing another book.

The apparent title is “My First Black Boyfriend,” and is apparently a collection of different essays planned to come out next year and will focus on race and relationships

Wednesday News: I’m the main character…of course

Wednesday News:  I’m the main character…of course

I’ve wanted to write a book since I was a kid.

I remember in my Grade 2 Language Arts class, we got the chance to write a story. Most kids wrote a 2-3 page story about some dog, cat, or other simple story. I decided to go above and beyond that, cause my story was closer to 20 pages long.

I would write stories now and then in school, mostly for my own personal accomplishment than for actually showing others, but most of them were scribbled onto some pieces of looseleaf.

Fast forward to nowadays, and at first I didn’t know what I wanted to write about. At first I wanted to write a book about what it was like when my brother passed away several years ago.

I thought about it and thought about it, and I didn’t really know how to write a book like that. I’ve never read a book like that, and I didn’t really want to, so I took that as a sign of me not wanting to pursue that idea.

What does that mean for the fantasy book that I now want to write? Well I want it to be my story in a way. Obviously my real story would be pretty boring, but I want my book to be about what I imagine I would do in a fantasy world, while putting together all the different aspects of fantasy that I enjoy the most.

What can I tell you about the book without spoiling anything? Well ideally nothing haha but I will tell you that there will be the main character (based off of me) and he will go on a journey (duh!) and maybe save the day? Maybe die? maybe perish within minutes in a skyscraper sized fire tornado throwing sharks and giant whales at everything that moves.

Hopefully next week I’ll be able to share some very rough (and I emphasize the rough) sketches I’ve been doing of some of the main characters and the map of the world.

Book News: July 24

So like I have said a few times already, I’ve begun “writing” my book.

It’s still in the early stages, and I’m still figuring out all the kinks, and probably will be for a while, but I have begun figuring out some of the characters and the overall plot that I want to follow.

Most of that people knew already, so what’s the big news this week?

Well from early stages of development, I’m looking to make a series for this book, all related, instead of just a one off. With the ideas I have rolling out right now, it makes more sense for a series, AND I think it’s easier to tell a good story over a few books instead of in one book.

I’ve got a title figured out, and some of the main characters, but I’ll update you about all of that next week when I give you another update (hopefully).

Wednesday News: It’s Begun…

Wednesday News: It’s Begun…

Months ago now, I had made a post about how I wanted to write a book, but I didn’t really know about what.

Well I’ve figured out some rough ideas of what I want to write.

I’ve loved fantasy books my whole life, and I think that creating one of my own would make the most sense to me.

I have a few ideas rolling around in my head, and if you’re really curious about what it might be about, feel free to make guesses or ask in the comments.

I will give more updates in the future about what is going on, and maybe ill make it the weekly news post, but for now, just know that baby steps are being taken.

Wednesday News: July 10
