And I’m not sure for how long because of the way the rest of this month is set up. November, as you may or may not know, hosts the annual National Novel Writing Month. I have in the last hour or so began penning my second novel loosely titled ‘For The People’ which is more literature-ish than young adult fiction which is a genre I enjoy reading and writing on. It’s a story based on socio-political issues as experienced by a young teen activist. I’m fleshing out some parts of the plot as I go and I’m hopeful for that fifty thousand words target by the end of this month.
The thing I love about this all is that it has forced me to pick up blogging again. I was going to ease into it with a ‘Taking Stock’ post but the free form of a good old regular post (which I’m most familiar with) came as such a relief. I’ll still do the videos and all but for now I’m content with the written word.
For the most part of this year, I have had to let go of many writing gigs and competitions to immerse myself in learning about the ‘creative writing’ industry. I’ve tried to keep you all updated with posts on my social media pages though with few sparse details though that may change with time. In past posts I’ve talked about changing up things so that I can seek more avenues to creatively express myself and at this moment I believe my YouTube channel will be do just that. Then with that I’m enjoying the process of writing the novel, creating video content, communicating and building up towards greatness.
