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.

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.

As a writer, the Pullitzer Prize is one of the biggest honours someone can. There’s nothing that comes to mind that could be more of an honour except the Nobel Prize itself.

In a world full of awards for movies, tv shows, songs, and countless humanitarian awards, it seems like awards for books sort of get lost in all the noise.

This article by Book Marks talks about the 5 books that won 2019’s Pulitzer Prize in Arts and Letters.

If you call yourself a book lover you had better at least check them out. And you’re welcome for making your TBR list a little taller.

Find out the Pulitzer Prize winners here.

So usually for the weekly news update I find some article online that gives us some news on a book, author, or something in that field, but this week I have something a little different.

I’ve always had a love of books and reading, and had a dream of being an author. I remember there were a bunch of times as a kid where I would write out a short story or a small book in class instead of paying attention.

My books were often about knights or heroes of some sort, and usually were torn up or lost before anybody else read them.

I didn’t mind that, it was more of a personal quest. Write books of the heroes I want, going on the adventures I want.

I’ve sort of accepted that I won’t be some famous author. I won’t sell millions of copies of my books and be considered a ‘classic’ writer in my genre.

I still love writing though, and I would love to write a book, and I have been thinking about it a lot lately now that school is almost done.

My biggest problem was coming up with a subject matter and genre. Did I want to write about some heroes going on a fantasy adventure? A detective novel? Sci-fi?

I had no idea, but I knew I wanted to write a book on something that I knew I could write.

After much thinking, I came up with an idea. I’m not gonna tell you here until I’ve hashed out the details and know I am going to go through with this, but I guess this is my official announcement.

It is still in the works, but I plan on writing a book myself.

I hope you all are as excited as I am. I’m a bit scared at the same time, but I think it’ll be exciting once I start doing it.

Stay tuned in the next few weeks for some more information on it. It’s probably going to fill up the Wednesday News posts for the next few weeks.
