My Future Plans for My Writing Process

It has been over a year since I had begun writing my 4th book. My goal was to have it be publishable my December of this year. Sadly, I don’t think that is going to happen.


I am currently enrolled in grad school, taking a major in library science. I had a lot of work for my first semester. So, I did not have a lot of time to work on my story, whether it was outlining or writing it. I have not even submitted it to an editor yet.


My goal moving forward is to revise outlines at least a few times before writing a draft. Of course, this would not apply to the first draft. Unlike other authors, I need my first drafts to start of short and sloppy. Otherwise, I can’t get through it. Setting my expectations high only leads me to having writer’s block. As I revise each draft, though, I produce more words and strengthen my writing and content little by little.


I am taking a summer class for my grad school program. I am hoping that it does not interfere with my time to write. Although I have completed an outline for this upcoming draft yet to be written, I know the storyline needs a lot of improvement. But I am still going to write the darn thing. Maybe I will discover some ideas for my next draft as I write.


Just like with writing my drafts, I may change the approach to writing my outlines. I could start of with short and vague summaries for each chapter, and lengthen them as well as add more details.


I also want to eventually write few drafts. The first 3 books took, at least, hundreds of drafts. I cannot keep track of how many. A lot of authors can complete their stories in as little as 10 to 12 drafts. That is another goal that I wish to pursue. My writing abilities have grown over many years. Therefore, I am confident that that wish could come true one day.
