I have all the characters I need and I'm almost finished with the brainstorming part. This one is going to be A LOT longer than the first one. More chapters and action and drama and romance and death. It's going to be a whole new ride and I can't wait to get started.

Ever been told in class to write an essay about a very hard (or just stupid) topic? Like why you should have chores or why wearing shorts too short is a distraction in class. Well, brainstorming on writing a new book, is harder. Because your all alone and you can't really ask for help because its YOUR story. So I literally brainstormed for better ways to brainstorm. I found three things that got my mind working in the right direction.
1. I like the noise, but not like a crying baby in the next room or spongebob on the TV. So I popped in my earphones and Imagine Dragons and Florence & the Machine blasted into my ears.
2. I always get thirsty when brainstorming as if using my brain so hard dehydrates me. Water works great sometimes but I think sweeter (or even a little sour) is a lot better. So I drink lemonade or tea with A LOT of sugar.
3. Scenery is a big deal for me. Sometimes all the people is helpful. Other times, I just really want to be alone. And I find that when I'm planning an action or extremely important fighting scene, I like when people are moving around me. Don't ask me why, it just gets my pen moving faster. But when I'm writing something soft and sweet, or maybe a very fragile secret that's about to be untold, I want to be somewhere where I cannot get distracted. I don't even want a bird to flap it's wings past me. So I either lock myself in my room or hide outside.
These three tips are helpful. Brainstorming sucks, like a lot, but I can't do anything without it.

Took me a while, but hey, I finally finished it. My book! It's an eBook though. (You gotta start somewhere!) I've totally done what I've been dreaming on doing for like, ever. I've written every page, every chapter. And then I had to type it all up, which was excruciating PAINFUL. And last, release it to the world. It's the hard part, but also, the most exciting.
Couldn't have looked better!
It is available almost everywhere. JUST 3.99!
