I want to write! I have a decent idea and I’ve been studying my genre. I need to do some more reading in my genre, but I have good idea of tropes. Unfortunately I keep starting over. I find some reason or something I need to have in the beginning which I don’t have, so I start over. I need to stop starting over and just finish something!
I’ve realized I need to shut off my filter when write. I need to stop worrying and just do it. I want to shoot for 40k to 50k words. I am writing the the steampunk genre, but I want to do a military steampunk mixed with some fantasy elements. I am including dragons! Because dragons sell, lol!
I’m thinking of writing in first person. A lot of the urban fantasy stories use a first person, gritty, noir style of writing. I want do that. Some of the steampunk genre I read are first person, so I don’t think I am too far off writing first person.
My world planning is done. I’ve create a rich world with so much happening. I have airship and aether, I have dragons and zombies. I have a little bit of a plot, and need t develop it more. I want to develop my characters more too.
Lastly, I want to build a good sized email list, but a high responsive list too. I want to have a website and post short stories weekly to build up interest towards my initial release. I don’t want to pay for my list, so I will boost my shorts on FB with a link at the end to my email list.
So time to begin again, and don’t stop! Time to write!
