Awhile back, I did my #Booknerd Goals For 2016 post, but those were my BOOKNERD GOALS. NOT WRITING GOALS. ALSO SOME RANDOM QUESTIONS ARE INCLUDED.
1) What do you plan to do with your Wattpad?
UMMMMMMMMMnothing. HAHAHA JK JK. Actually I really don't know. I'm currently writing the last chapter in my Carmilla fanfic
2) What do you hope to have accomplished by the end of 2016?
Middle-earth domination. Oh wait, this is writing goals. Hm.. as soon as I finish editing and revising, I hope to find a literary agent for my book, and then sign a big book deal and make a million dollars off my book so I can BUY ALL THE BOOKS.
I'd also like to try my hand a writing some poetry.
3) When do you hope to finally stop procrastinating and get around to finishing editing/revising?
*hides behind Barad Dur* *SCREAMS* NEEVVVVVERRRRRRRRR!
Well what happened was, half way through writing my book, the main character's point of view on certain things in the book changed. In fact, the whole plot line also changed. So now I'm have to re-write the whole first half of my book. And then revise the whole thing. *jumps down a rabbit hole*
4) Any tips for editing and revising?
-run around screaming like chicken with it's head cut off, and once you've got that out of your system, sit down and edit till your finger fall off. Yes I realise that this was a gruesome idea. NO REGRETS.
-wear nice fuzzy socks
-listen to music
-drink 1,000 cups of tea
-print your whole book off and then revise it that way. It'll be easier.
-drink coffee. While I do not consider coffee to be as good as tea, it'll help you stay awake at 12:00 at night when your trying to figure out what character to kill off next.
-take a shower. All of my best story ideas have come from thinking while in the shower.
5) WHAT IS YOUR BOOK ABOUT?! TELL US.
First of all, you don't demand a Dark Lord to divulge her secrets. And secondly, it's too early to really say anything! I will tell you one thing: It's YA, sci-fi and I'm planning it to be a trilogy.
6) How many story ideas do you have floating around in your head?
Too many. I try and write them down. I have an idea for a steampunk story, a contemporary, a Lindsey Stirling fanfic(which has something to do with pirates), and a low fantasy story set in the UK(so England, Scotland Wales and also Ireland) that has faeries. Badass faeries. And those are just a few of my story ideas! *groans* I can't write them all. It's starting to kill me.
7) Will you participate in NaNoWriMo?
No. I don't think I'd do well with all that stress.
8) Do you like to kill characters?
Yes. I love it. The more painful the story, the better. Basically I sit down at the computer and do this:
PLOT PLOT FIGHT DEATH DEATH DEATH DIE DIE DIE EVERYBODY DIESSSS MWHAHAHAHAHAHA HEARTBREAK DEATTTTTHHH
So my plan with my book is to make it as heart breaking as possible so that my readers will drown in their tears. :) Aren't I a nice person?
Anyway, that's what I'm planning for 2016. Namarie!
