This post is for the insecure writers' support group. Last month has been fairly chaotic for me, trying to get a number of things in order following some family stuff. So, some brief things I'm being insecure about this month:
- A major ghost writing project. By which I mean around 100 000 words of non-fiction, which would make it my longest work ever, including my rather short PhD and my own novels. It's a quite daunting amount, and it seems almost impossible to write at the moment. Of course, that's normal, and the feeling should hopefully recede a little as I get to grips with the research.
- Getting to grips with Scrivener. There are things about it I definitely like, such as being able to see the shape of an overall project and being able to move things around easily. I've still got a lot to learn with it though.
- It does seem to have pushed me in the direction of multiple projects again, which is always a weakness of mine. I'm hoping that Scrivener will help me to avoid my tendency to delete things when I get stuck, by allowing me to jump around more.
- I'm almost definitely going down the self publishing route with my novel 'The Glass'. Now I just need to work out what I'm doing.
