Do I have a writing process?

My gut reaction would be to say “No”.

If I think about it a bit, I’d reply “Yes, trying to make sense out of Chaos”.

And that’s true, but after years of reading, introspection, trial and error… I’ve realized I prefer writing on paper. Thus, I have several small notebooks, and I always carry one with me wherever I go. Whenever I start writing something, I make a note of the story/idea it belongs to. Each notebook has parts and pieces of various stories, and my mind doesn’t quite grasp the meaning of time and chronological order, so I have to make sense of that mess eventually.

This happens when I type everything I’ve written. I use Scrivener for that, and it’s very useful to be able to jump from folder to folder within the same project, but I can’t use it as my sole tool because I keep revising the text every time I open the project instead of writing anything new.

So I’ve decided to stick to my notebooks. But first I have to type everything I’ve done until now because the queue is turning overwhelming. I’ll let you know each time I finish with one, as a kind of reward.

The First Step

This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, but I never had the courage to attempt what feels like an enormous undertaking. I’ll still be on the low while I finally start writing what I want to write, but I thought creating a blog would be useful for me. I’ll try to keep track of everything this way, and maybe it’ll help me visualize that I’m getting something done.

So here we are. Now I have a writer blog and it feels kind of official. I can’t back away. There’s nowhere to hide. I mean… I’m glad to be here, hahaha, why would I want to run away? I’m fine. Everything’s fine. Not having second thoughts at all.

Anyway, this is the first step on my journey to become a writer, and I hope it’s a fruitful one.

See you again soon!
