From Script To Novel Writing…

I absolutely have to update you about my writing life!!! Yes at last! 

While I was busy with exams and catching up with vlogging and blogging, especially the Weekly Photo Challenge, afterwards, I also had a lot going on with my pen and paper… well, mainly with my MS Word. And it’s only now that I finally pushed away my laziness to sit down and write a post about some serious business of mine: writing.

From the title of this post, you might have an idea of my writing projects. In fact, before my exams started I spent 2-3 consecutive days at writing a whole short film script. Like, non-stop. Except for sleep.

By the way some of you who liked my facebook page (An Evil Nymph) did see a status I posted at that time telling you about that little project. So, for you it’s not the big news yet 😉

This article serves the purpose of helping people take their negative emotions and channel them into something useful and positive. Dealing with stress and anxiety can affect one’s mental health, so dealing with it in a healthy manner can reduce the intensity of these emotions over time. Consider using creative methods to deal with these emotions so that you can get on with your life and stop wasting time wallowing in these pessimistic feelings.

 

hateWith all the expectations placed on us each and every day, it’s no wonder that the average level of stress experienced by people is increasing each year. There are different ways of coping with stress, such as exercise or doing yoga. However, have you ever considered channeling all of the stress and negative emotions associated with it towards something productive?

You would never think that you could get results out of using your negative emotions for something. Usually, people are trying to get rid of or ignore their negative emotions so that they can get on with their work. However, if you’re creative, you could produce something interesting out of what’s causing you to worry, such as writing. Some of the best writings come out of the most intense emotions ever experienced, and worry is one of them.

Aspiring Young Writers: This is a Message for You.

Many teens have the secret dream of becoming a famous writer just like for example J.K. Rowling.

But most of them end up burying this dream deep into the dirt long before they reach adulthood and when they are past this age, becoming a writer was just like saying I wish to become a Hollywood celebrity or marry a Royal family. These of course can happen, but it happens only to 1 in a million of people.

But why do people assume that the 1 in a million can’t be YOU?

If we get discouraged and slowly build a lack of faith especially in teenage years, obviously, we won’t likely reach the dream… 100% determination and independent voice are what we need.

If we go back to our childhood, we notice that parents and relatives constantly asked us what we wanted to do when we grew up. We mainly said things like ‘pop star’ but as years passed we began to think of the possibility of achieving this job and we thought, well ‘teacher’ or ‘doctor’ is more reasonable… and approved by the others.

My Writing Mistakes [Special 100th post!]

I can’t believe that I’m currently writing my 100th post after more than four months in WordPress’s blogging community. Time flies so quickly! Before I come to the point of this post I want to thank you all for being here -virtually- and reading my blog. I’m so grateful to all of you for supporting me in my writing/blogging path. Love you all guys!

thank you!

Now to the main subject: as this is a special post I wanted to share some advice… Or anything that might help you. I like my posts to be useful, productive so that at least I know that my readers will have learnt something or enjoyed this reading moment. I want that my writing contributes to at least making you smile. 🙂

We writers usually write to create a particular effect to our readers, to pass a message to the world.

This is how writing is an art, a passion.

Getting to Know More About My Characters…

I usually plan my characters first, before going on to the plot, when I write a story. Sometimes when I get a great idea – great for me LOL – I note it down of course, then I let myself dive into a whole new universe…

universe and galaxy

I sort of enter a relationship with every of the characters I made up and as I get to know more about them, I slowly build up a plot that will maybe never be written – haha, because I’ve never thought of seriously writing a novel before I met NaNo.

Do You Follow Yourself?

Well, I DO. Yes it’s true, for both of my blogs. I follow/subscribe myself.

Is this a way to get another bonus follower? No not really.

What it does is that this way you can be at the same time the writer and the reader.

Got it?

No.

Alright, here’s the trick:

When you follow youself, you can see how people get your notifications about your posts, and this can make you improve. For e.g. when I first started writing a blog I wrote too many posts at the same time, and I wrote LONG posts. That’s not right at all because then I get lots of mail and when you have lots of mail I guess you just end up marking everything  as ‘read’ or simply don’t bother check your mail anymore. This will make you learn how to control yourself if ever you have this problem.

Maybe you’re not aware of your presentation mistakes, because just like a book, if the cover is nice, it is read. First impression = last impression, right?

Always try to be at your readers’ place and you’ll do the right thing.

Blogging Yours,

An Evil Nymph
