Planning >> Drafting >> Editing

Something is better than nothing right?

It looks like I have a long road ahead of me in my "training", or maybe I should call it "reeducating". Maybe it's not "Re" at all.

How long will it take me until I feel that I've improved? I don't know. I don't know at all; it frustrates me that it is these thoughts of self-doubt that prevent me from writing.

So, this week, I'm going to do some drafting for the upcoming chapters of the following:
~ Howl of Gray Wolf
~ SolAka
~ Leaping Monkey (Sasuke's story; Seishin)
~ United We Soar (might be two chapters)

After that is the checking or the editing; in other words, proofreading and the like. This is the tough part! Not sure if I need a Beta Reader or not, and it's usually proofreading that takes me forever. For now, I think I should focus on drafting and what my style looks like. Just plain and simple freewriting, no writing.

For later chapters, I will have to plan on where I want the stories to approach. I have a notebook for that.

- Drafting and Revision

- Write and Revise Rought Draft and Essay

Word Meaning
PLAN My intended actions to determine goal; sketch of produced ideas; gathering info
DRAFT Getting it on paper. a first or preliminary form of any writing, subject to revision, copying, etc
REVISE Analyzing and evaluation for clarity, unity, coherence. Editing and proofreading


I do plenty of planning for Seishin, but found the utmost difficulty in writing the stories.

mastergraywolf: (Huh?)
A new TAG. I got a bit of blogging to do.

Memorial Day (U.S) passed. I wanted to get back on United We Soar but I'm still beating myself up.

This has been happening a lot. The more I think about how my writing style is terrible, the more it'll hinder me to return to my works, and the more I will think that I need to read up on guidelines. But will I remember? That's another worry of mine. I wonder if I can identify my mistakes and even others (say, if I wanted to do beta reading).

How should I say? The technicalities of grammar are not my strong point. I can write a sentence unconsciously but can't remember the rules of it. School was long ago. I didn't pursue writing (and reading) and did not stay fresh in it, but my passion makes me want to revise my mistakes.

Maybe I am impatient? And I hate having to look back and see many mistakes that I should fix? Takes up too much time?

Anyways, how to deal with my writing insecurities?

Let's start with the basics. Under the tag, "Technicalities of writing" are entries pertaining to sentence problems, use of punctuation, pretentious language, spelling and punctuation mechanics, etc. Anything that can help me. Anything in linguistics.

The tag "literature:writing" is for entries on anything about writing art, but there isn't much direction.

Also, for now on, I'll do "Word of the Day" and "History of the Day" on Twitter. That'll keep it active.
