Flashback: Discovering My Writing Process

June 13, 1997 (Megan is 16)

Very little happened yesterday — I spent a good part of the day writing. I’ve found it goes somewhat faster now — it used to take me an hour per page, and now I’m getting at least a page and a half done, sometimes two. Maybe it’s because I’m writing so much, my mind is really geared into the story, plus I have it outlined so well, I don’t have to think much on where I’m going.

It’s kind of sad, though, don’t you think? I mean, I spent a good part… most of grade 11 working on STARS FALLING, but it just sort of… crumpled. Really, it’s because I hardly outlined it at all, and also the idea was too big. But now, it looks like I’ll finish this novel in less than a month. Of course, it helps that, being summer vacation, I have lots of time to write, but if I didn’t have each scene mapped out…

How cool! Thanks for sharing a glimpse from the past. I kind of wish I had kept a journal just so I could look back and see how far I've come. =)

Glad you enjoyed it! :) I wish I'd kept mine more carefully--it drives me a little crazy that the one during my first year of high school has no actual dates (I just wrote in it sporadically without noting the day) and there are some gaps around things I don't totally remember and wish I could. It is neat looking back, though!

I think I'm really going to like reading these flashbacks. I already do, actually! Thank you for sharing them. :)

You're welcome! I'm glad you like them--it seemed like a fun 'project' to me. :)
