Still Plugging Away

I'm still plugging away at my novella but it's nice to see it take form. I had a few minutes before work today to go back over my writing and do some editing. I'm trying to use a more descriptive writing style in the future.

Busy With My Day Job

I'm busy with my day job (as a cashier at a grocery store) but managed to meet my goal for the day, which was to write the next paragraph of my novella. I am realizing this story will come together at turtle pace but there really is no hurry.

Writing Goal of the Day

My goal for the day is to simply write the first paragraph of my novella. I say simply...ha ha. I'll let you know tomorrow if that's true!

What is a Novella?

Before I can write a novella I need to define what exactly a novella is. Here are a few different definitions I found online. A novella is a short novel or long story. A novella is a story with a compact and pointed plot. A novella is a work of fiction longer than a short story but shorter than a novel. Now that I have a clear definition of what a novella is I can set myself on the course of writing one.

In Preparation for Writing my First Novella

In preparation for writing my first romance novella, I'm reading a book called A Novel in a Year by Louise Doughty. The book promises to guide me from the first to the last page in 52 weeks. I'll keep you updated on my progress!
