Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.


So, do you write each and every day?




Bonus Questions:


1)What is your writing routine? How do you discipline yourself to keep at it?

2)Do like to challenge yourself when it comes to creative writing?

3)How do you feel about writer's block?

4)Do a lot of your stories take place on earth or some fictional world?


Enjoy!!!!

No, sadly I cannot dedicate every waking moment to writing. I am still learning and envisioning, but I wish I could just lock myself away and write until I finish something. To bad money gets in the way of such a dream at times.

Routine? Whenever the mood strikes me. There is a lot of mental preperation before I even begin to write, or pick up where I left off, and there is reason for it in a way, because I begin to play everything out in my head as I write which allows me to write chapters in one sitting, but editing those chapters fully is what takes the most time. Discipline? Learn to focus on your words, and tune out everything around you. You must learn to speak to yourself within your mind, you must learn to create moments and memories that never existed, but will hit you harder than your own experiences. Your writing must consume you, and live as your characters would.

Challenge? It is never a challenge, it is simply a matter of will. I could stay up 24 hours just to write if I didn't have to work. I guess the challenge is to write after physically draining yourself each day in the scorching heat.

Writers block? Never. I'm soo far ahead in my mind that I have to slowly piece my story together. I already know how it will end, and I even know where it will begin once more. As we speak I'm playing it out in my mind like a movie, and I do this every single day, even with my other stories, I know how they begin, what my characters are doing, where they will be, and how they will end . I'm excited just thinking about when I will actually complete them all however this does consume most of my life by doing this, but worth the amount of satisfaction and entertainment.

Most of them do take place on earth, but a cross the line of reality into fantasy and shape the world as I please. My main story is my own world though, every last detail is my own creation.

I do try to write daily in a journal. It helps me get my thoughts and emotions together and calms me down.

I'm not a writer, but I am a musician/producer so I can kind of relate since the process is not that different.

And so yes, I write every day. My routine is to get a basic idea ready, not worrying about the finer details(which in your case could be building up an idea for a story, not yet thinking about how to structure it). Once I get that idea, everything else pretty much flows into place slowly but surely over time. At one point I get far enough that I start sampling people's opinion on the work, get feedback and improve it.

My discipline is that I love doing it, so I don't consider it hard work. I spend roughly around 8-12 hours on it every day but time flies and some times I struggle to actually remove myself from work. My other source of "motivation" is of course that I get money, so I can live. It was hard in the beginning when I had to juggle a part-time job and also build up a decent network.

2: Yes, I always try to challenge myself. I want to learn something new every time I work on a project. If it's a genre I'm unfamiliar with, or a technique I've never tried.

3: It happens. Everyone experiences a writer's block at one point. When it happens, I usually force myself to write more, shorter stuff but at a higher rate. For instance, I create a piece within 30 mins, stop. Then go make another in 30ish mins. Stop, and another. At some point I can't stop anymore, and I end up all day working on one of the ideas that I just had to complete.

4: I guess this one doesn't really apply to me.

Writers Block? It's frustrating. There are times when you already had the story building up on your mind and suddenly you were preoccupied by other things, and then you start to wonder what story were you making again. Random plot pops out of my mind esp in the mornings while going to work, but they end up trash after when I get home.

I don't write but I sometimes make short (very short) stories. usually from random stories my mind makes up.

Sometimes I write short stories for my friend.
Only for her.

Never for yourself or others?

Nope. As she the only people who would recognise my tiny talent in writing, I only write about her for her to read.
