Hey everyone! I hope you guys are all doing well! So today I have a very exciting announcement for you guys that I have been talking about on my YouTube channel for the past couple of months and now I thought was the perfect time to talk about it here on the blog.
I’m writing my first book!!
So like I said, I have been talking about this on my YouTube channel for the past couple of months and giving short little updates whenever I had the chance. Since it has been a few months since I made that announcement, I realized that I had not yet talked about it here on the blog.
So about this time last year, I made up in my mind that I eventually wanted to write a book. Since I had been getting more into reading an writing at that point, it really inspired me to think about doing it myself.
So from the months of October of last year to around June of this year, I tried to come up with a concept for my story. I had so many ideas wrapped around my mind that it was impossible to focus on just one.
First, I went online and started researching all types of different genres. I knew already that I wanted my book to be a young adult book but I had to think long and hard about which sub genre I wanted to focus on. Fantasy or Science Fiction? Dystopian or Historical Fiction? It was a really hard process.
When I finally figured out what genre I did want to focus the most on (it was a tie between fantasy and dystopian for a few weeks), I had to come up with a concept idea. This was the hardest part of the process for me. It took me months to come up with something. Whenever I thought of an idea off the top of my head it had either already been done or I couldn’t come up with a good idea for the main character or the plot.
Once all of that stuff was figured out, I only recently (within the past couple of weeks) started to sit down and actually write the book.
I have to say, this process isn’t as easy as I thought but I bet it will be totally worth it in the end.
The only thing I can really say about the book at this point is what the genre will be. As of right now, it will be a Science Fiction/Dystopian book.
I’m really excited to start this journey and I hope you guys are too. I would love to become a published author someday but as of right now, I’m not expecting it to become anything for a while.
I’ll be sure to update you guys on my writing process here on the blog and on my YouTube channel whenever I can.
