Yesterday’s post was an interesting one for me. No, it wasn’t a dream. It was actually the first chapter of my first full-length novel attempt. I say attempt because the novel is still a work in progress. It’s a project that I have been working on for about 8 years now. It’s about a 32 chapter project, and I’ve written up to about chapter 26. Seems close to being finished, but it won’t be done anytime soon. Its the first novel I ever started, but it will probably be the last thing I ever publish. As it stands, I don’t have the skill set to do the story justice. That is why I’m blogging and writing short stories, I am in effect grinding experience points.
I hear a lot of people talk about how embarrassed they are of the first or early writing projects. For me, I have spent so much time and so much effort cultivating this first book idea, I just can’t stand to see it go to waste as a result of inefficient writing. So I have put the project on hiatus, and after some time, after I have a few other novels under my belt, I will revisit the 26 chapters I have written so far and see what of the project can be salvaged.
I have about 4 chapters of that project that I will be sharing on the blog. I have titled the book, Secrets of the Heaven and Earth Society.
I hope you enjoy it.
