As this blog is still fairly new I thought that maybe you should know a little bit about me so here is my post about my writing. Enjoy!
My Past In Stories
I can barely remember a time when a story has not been running around in my head. As far as I can remember they've always been there. I remember trying to write stories many times through my childhood and not then letting them go. The same sort of thing has happened when it has come to journalling. I will get a new notebook and maybe write a day here or there but then it goes nowhere.
Well, this changed at the end of grade 8. That year I received a secret santa present of a notebook and a pen together. It was the perfect gift because this was the notebook I began journalling consistently in as well as writing a few crazy story ideas that would have been in my head back then. I think it was partially this prompt that helped me really gain my moment in my dream for writing.

What I Write
Though I haven't actually written a complete first draft yet there are bits and pieces of stories floating everywhere. By everywhere I mean I have had lots of notebooks since grade 8. Many of the stories that come to me are definitely fantasy. In fact I believe there are few without some sort of fantasy element in it.
I have one main goal for this year and that is to finish the first draft of my novel. I had thought that I could work on this during Camp Nanowrimo but I didn't end up working on it as much as I would of liked and I changed my mind on the story I was working on because I felt I didn't have that much planning for it. The story I have currently been working on I am doing a lot of planning. I feel I would benefit from that.
How I Write
I pretty much take my two notebooks everywhere. One is for journalling and the other is for creative writing. For me it is a big no no not to have them. If I don't have room in my school bag I do my best to make them fit. At the start of the year I started with only take one of them to school with me but I then started taking two and couldn't continue with the sacrifice of one.
I also write on my computer but it is handy to write bits of scenes in my notebooks when I have spaces of time that a too short for getting my computer out but long enough to write something out by hand.
