What Fuels Your Writing?

writing

This morning I woke up and glanced over at my bedside table and the notebooks on top of it. Inside those notebooks, my characters, plot, and story structure live and breathe. I’m still in the planning stages of my novel and I feel an unexplainable hunger to just get it finished already. Some days the ideas don’t flow, but other days can be like an ocean. Most people probably would’ve given up by now and thrown away those ideas, but not me.

My main character is talking in my ear 24/7 and lives inside my head. He and the world he lives in call me to the page. I am their magician, their warrior, their god. They call upon me to create their world and direct their lives.

That’s part of the reason why I keep going. That hunger to create new worlds and lives on the page drives me. Novel writing is a bumpy ride, but I’m enjoying the journey. That’s the fuel I’m powered by.

Enough about me, what about you? What fuels your writing?

My Writing Update

I can’t believe it has been about a week since my last blog post. I’ve been busy for these last seven days, so I wasn’t able to post anything new. But not to worry, I’ll be posting much more now that all my business was taken care of, so stay tuned for more blog posts in the near future. Many more blog posts. For now though, I think I should give an update on my writing progress…

I’m currently in the final editing stages of my short story called “Coffee Shop Surprise” and once it’s finished, I’ll post it for all of you to read. I am also still planning my novel, and I recently made a breakthrough in its progress. I was having trouble figuring out my characters’ personalities, so what I did was write down a page of details about them and tape them to the walls of my room. It helps me to keep organized and I also have the pleasure of waking up every morning looking at my work. It’s the perfect inspiration.

I feel like I should be writing more poetry, but after the short story is complete I’ll definitely be writing more poems. I have much more works that I’ll be posting on the site, including some interesting (if I do say so myself) short stories that I’ve already written.

I hope everyone is having a great day, and please stay tuned for more updates, blog posts, e.t.c.

Hi!

My name is Daevone Molyneux, but you can call me Daevone (Day-von). I’m a 19 year old writer who lives in Florida. Ever since I was 5 years old, I’ve dreamed of publishing a novel. So, I would write stories about monsters, dragons, demons, and all sorts of stuff, just for the love of it. 

Not much has changed since then. I still write stories, but they’ve become more and more complex. Since those days, my writing has evolved like a Charmander into a Charizard (if you understood that, then we’d make great friends). 

I’m plotting a novel right now and I hope to have it ready some time before my birthday (October 5), so I’ll update you guys frequently on its progress. 

Not only will you be following me on the road to my dreams, but you’ll also read my rants and observations of everyday life. Not to mention some short stories and poems along the way.

I post regularly, so keep coming back to the blog as often as you can. Spread the world, tell all your friends, and don’t forget to leave comments. See ya soon.
