I've been pouring over my beta readers ideas and suggestions, exciting things are in the works! I've been working on query letters and my synopsis, and I've even started on a marketing plan, and after much deliberation I think instead of continuing with my nano project I'm going to start working on a second adventure for Birdi and and her freinds!!!

Ich gehe ins Bett und schlafe direkt ein - Ha ha - nichts da 🙈 nicht wenn mir immer Ideen kommen. Und da mir Dialoge besonders gelingen, wenn ich todmüde bin und eigentlich schlafen will, muss ich sie aufschreiben. Das bleibt leider dann nicht bei ein paar Sätzen. Und schwups bin ich wieder ein oder zwei Stunden später eingeschlafen als ich wollte und überlege am nächsten Morgen, warum ich so müde bin 🤔😅 Tja was soll man machen?

Day 18. #fantasywipnovember How do you feel about killing your characters?
🦇
A weird one for me. I've stressed about it, I've over-thought about it, and I've done it accidentally. Was literally so in the zone once that I had found out my MC was dead on a readthrough. Whoops?! But my main thing, these days, is that the death should mean something. The loss should affect characters, plot, themes, something! If it doesn't, it strikes me as hollow, and likely due to that character having simply run out of steam. Not good. That won't impact the reader, or story. I also want killing characters to be infrequent. Not out of a precious attitude, or not wanting to "hurt my babies" - it's a figment of my imagination, not a puppy. I kill infrequently because that avoids it losing impact! It avoids it becoming predictable!
🤓
How do you guys approach killing characters?

✨ Your writing environment matters.⠀

Guess who's back....
Hi everyone! So I've been lost in a world of my own for the past few month, I've been travelling Italy and have now returned to the uk to study English lit! I thought I'd do a reintroduce of myself as it really has been a while.... I'm an aspiring writer, born in Scotland, I adore medieval things and old buildings, I get angry at technology quickly, I'm very unorganised and I'm queen at procrastination ...
Okay that's the basics.
Project wise I'm still working on my fantasy mystery novel Divine Monsters, hence why I chose this particularly cool looking stone wolf as my photo for today!
I'll be posting extracts, poetry and general updates on my progress, in the hope it pushes me to work !
Also good luck to all those doing #nanowrimo ! You brave souls, good luck! 🐺
🐺

Day 17. #fantasywipnovember a song that reminds you of your Villain. I have a couple villains to choose from, but when this song came on I immediately thought of Vincent Praiden the man who shakes the whole regiment up with his appearance. He wants it all, and considers himself worthy of more than it all.
🤓
I don't really focus on song themes, so these questions always trip me up, but are great to consider! Do you guys have songs for your characters?

It’s been AGES since I posted a photo of me so I spent today worrying about how I was going to get an amazing Insta worthy gorgeous photo of me when it’s just me and the dog and I’ve got loads to do 🤷🏻‍♀️ so here I am! In my new favourite genuine Scottish woollen head band 💕 and in the background there is my gorgeous 13 month old Labrador puppy Bucky 🐾
*
I also haven’t done a #fridayintroductions yet so hiii!! 👋 I’m Jenny, a fiction writing coach who has been telling stories since I was 3 or 4 and writing fantasy since my teens.
I have 4 published novels and a background in marketing, and I want to help build your confidence to tell your stories ✍️🎉

Your turn! Let me something about you in the comments below 👇👇👇

Happy Friday and midpoint of #nano ! I've done nano about 8 times now, only twice officially, and this is the first when I'm editing instead of charging through new content. But I love it. I always expect such serene powering ahead, and always end up maniacal... 😂 Maybe it's just my natural state?!
🤓
Day 16. #fantasywipnovember how do you name your characters? I go for a simple approach, I just think of what they parents of the character would have gone for. Or their guardian, whatever. I don't use names with "meaning" because it rarely makes sense to me, unless we're talking prophecy etc.!
🦄
How do you choose names?

Did the live video in the Facebook group today outside to see if the quality would improve and IT DID! 🤷🏻‍♀️ This is where I sat while filming and this is the little furry one who did laps round the bench while on lead and wrapped me up 🐾💕

Day 14 #fantasywipnovember is #1linewednesday I hope I didn't get it wrong, I've shared just a line I like, rather than my first line. This is during the first on page encounter with a Golem and I just really enjoyed writing the description!
🤓
Sending to Beta Readers today! Very excited and very very nervous! Still gonna do a last read through of the chapters, just to double check, but otherwise I'm good to go!
🦄
So nervous!!! What was the last thing in your writing to make you nervous? 📖✒️🐦

Ooft! #nanowrimo vibes! I'd never hit the 50k in a month target working full time too, but 10k in 13 days... I'll take it! And I'm actually pretty happy with how the story is moving along too 🤓

First of all, ✨persistence✨ is the key to writing and finishing what you're writing. It doesn't matter how long it takes you, just keep at it. A little bit at a time is better than nothing.⠀
There's no glory in defeat! Don't let procrastination and fear defeat you ✊
*⠀
But also...⠀
Have you seen ✨Bright✨? ⠀
It's an urban fantasy movie on Netflix. If you take Will Smith out of the equation, it's a fantastic film.⠀
It's supposed to be about prejudice. About orcs not getting enough respect in society, and then the orc who wants to be different and be a police officer not getting respect from his colleagues or the orc community.⠀
I see something else, as well. I see a story about class.⠀
*⠀
A little while ago I came to realise that class issues are something that every country suffers from but only the UK seem to acknowledge and talk about.⠀
If you have affluence and poverty in your country, then you have a class system.⠀
I come from a proud working class background. My grandparents worked their fingers to the bones in factories (my grandmother was so short she had to stand on a box to do her job). My parents worked hard to give us the life of the lower middle class and now I'm striving to stay there and not dip back down into the poverty-stricken (hard in today's economy).
*⠀
The orcs in Bright are the working class, stuck in poverty, ignored, forgotten and a little bit feared. The elfs are the upper class, rich and affulent in their shining part of the city.⠀
I guess that's why I loved this film. I loved watching Joel Edgerton's orc Nick grow, persist in the role he's wanted to do since he was tiny despite everyone making his life hell, and in doing so, start changing the world.⠀
*⠀
Nick inadverantly starts the beginning of something new. It's time we started something new too, in the UK but also in the US. We need a revolution ✊
