Alright, everyone! Today we're gonna chat about how I am starting up a brand new writing project and how things are going so far!
You guys, I have never been more excited to start a writing project in my entire life!
I have written other things before, mostly poems and short stories/novellas under pen names and pseudonyms. Lots of fan fiction, too. And I mean LOTS!
But I've finally decided to get out on my own and write the stories that have been in my head for the longest time. I can see my main characters when I close my eyes. I have their stories planned out. And it's finally time to put pen to paper!
And I am starting with making a series bible!
A few weeks ago, I learned all about series bibles (also known as series binders) from some lovely people on YouTube. A series bible is basically a big folder/notebook that you fill with all the information about your story. Settings, details, descriptions, character information (down to the baristas and the shop keepers in your little town!), and even a place to brain dump information. And the first thing I did was grab a mask and set off to the store!
For now, I'm working with a simple spiral notebook with little tags on the ends, but I'm already expecting to move to a virtual binder before this is all over!
Right now, I am working on my first idea for a romance series... A witchy paranormal romance series, of course! I've got my ideas for my main characters and who they are and what the love... And I am already completely in love with my first main character, Sydney. She's already someone that I adore and someone that I would want to have as a best friend.
So, my plan is to start working on the series next month. I want to give myself plenty of time on it, letting myself write every day and give myself plenty of time to edit, rewrite, and all that good stuff.
Next time we talk, I'll be putting my fingers to the keyboard on the project! But for now, its pen and paper and I'm jotting down everything I can possibly think of to make Sydney's world full and real and exploding with magic and love!
Just me, a paranormal romance author with big dreams and even bigger crushes!
