Major Milestone and the Future

yuriko/ June 4, 2019/ writing/ 0 comments

As of today, it’s been 2 days since I finished the first draft of the story.  Following a piece of advice from fellow writers, I am currently putting it aside to let it stew and will return to it at the end of June or beginning of July. In the meantime, I am working on another story idea, which came

Vomit Draft Progress Report #6

Good morning, everyone! Happy Tuesday! Well, it’s been a week since I’ve updated my progress, I think. The days are starting to gray together and now, I’m not so sure where I left off last.  The draft is up to nearly 76k words.. . And 19 chapters. Not bad for a quick run of the old brain, right? I’m happy

Vomit Draft Progress Report #5

53k words in to the story.  The MC has had a few nasty things happen in her life and it led to more bad things.  I sometimes feel bad, as a writer, that these kinds of situations arise but if it didn’t, I wouldn’t be interested in finishing the story, would I? And you, as a reader, wouldn’t care much

So, here we are. First weekend of May. Just finished watching Season 8, Episode 4 of Game of Thrones last night. I’m happy for some bits but sad for others. I’m coming along on the 1st draft – 36k words and 14 chapters, though it seems my characters have a mind of their own and are NOT following my outline

Well, I think this might as well be the first report again. After 36k words, I decided to redo the story from scratch. It was a hard decision but I think I like the direction it’s going right now. I’ve changed some of the attributes of the MC and the love interest. She’s older now and in college. So far,

Vomit Draft Progress Report #2

yuriko/ April 23, 2019/ writing/ 0 comments

I’m 36k words and 10 chapters into the story and I wonder if other writers ever struggle with their work as much as I do. Even though I was happy with it for the most part, like my protagonist, I feel like the story is not set at the right time. Or the right situation is not presenting itself. Currently,

Back to My Writing

yuriko/ April 12, 2019/ writing/ 0 comments

Ever since I was little, I’ve loved stories. Now, I didn’t say I loved reading… Although, reading is usually the way to absorb stories. And since most of the time, I was bored of someone else’s ramblings, I have been a writer. I’m not saying that I’m perfect, because I’m a realist and I know myself. I just think that

Looking for a Challenge

yuriko/ March 22, 2019/ 2019, Blogging Challenge/ 0 comments

In an attempt to jump-start the blogging, I thought about what I wanted to talk about. But unfortunately, I don’t seem to think that I have a vast archive of knowledge to share with the world. I doubt anyone really cares about my opinion of Game of Thrones or why drivers should have their headlights on when driving in the
