My Writing “Secrets”: Part 1

I always loved to read about other peoples creative process.  So I wanted to share with you mine, As I promised a few posts ago (Click here), that I will share with you about my projects, so here it is.

I started writing this post and I couldn’t stop. I wanted to share with you a lot of information and the post became too long so I divided it into 3 sections, hope you’ll enjoy reading them, just as much as I enjoyed writing them ❤

So… What am I working on? You might ask…

I really love to have a few writing projects (or other types) at any given time, I get bored very quickly and lose momentum if I only work on only one thing, I like the variety and that I can change things depending on how my life is going or my mood 😉

I have 3 major projects I am currently working on and a few small ones:

  • A Science Fiction standalone novel (this one came as surprise to me, but I love it) which I am working hard to finish and hopefully after proofreading and editing I will send it out to the big world in hopes that it will grow up nicely ❤
  • A YA Romance standalone book, this book as well is a bit new for me (the genre I mean, lol).
  • A Children’s Fantasy series, here I am at the editing stage of the first draft 🙂
  • I really want to re-type the books I’ve lost (more details in part 3), I still have them printed out (most of the work)but I need to re-type them and there are tons of papers there 😦
  • I have a few post ideas for this blog and other blog-related ideas, that I will share with you slowly.

Why I write?

I wrote a blog before but it didn’t click right. With this blog, I feel more connected to the people and to the large community of WordPress.

Over the years I’ve learned so much about writing and life, but about the writing, the learning was amazing for me.

I changed so much as a person because of my writing and I’ve changed my style as well, in fact, all these new and old changes were the things that gave me the courage to start this blog, to finally share bits of my life and even share more about my writing.

Writing for me is like air or like the morning coffee, I just have to write. No matter if it’s a book, a journal, a diary or a blog. I have to put the words down on paper (or e-paper, lol).

No matter how much life is getting hard I still believe in magic, in people, but mostly I am a strong believer of expressing your individuality in any way that may help you or even help others. This is the main reason why I write and why I believe, with a full heart, that I am a writer and that I was meant to share my words.

I started to write as a child, building worlds and characters. Some stories were meant to be just stories and some helped me to deal with hardships in my life. Writing kept me sane when everything around me collapsed, it helped me keep memories better and in the past few years, I also learned to share and make my writing more public… Just taking the risk and sharing scared me a lot, it still scares me.

That’s it for part 1, it’s still long I am sorry for that… Hope it wasn’t too long, lol.

More to come… Part 2 and Part 3 🙂

Have a great day & Thank you so much for reading ❤

  2. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but
    I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my
    own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points
    or suggestions? Thank you

    1. Building a blog at WordPress (com) is really not hard, but it is a hard work of keep blogging and posting new content. Visiting other blogs and building a nice community 🙂
      If you really want a blog just pick a name, a nice theme (there are a lot of free ones here) and start posting and following 😀
      Be kind and nice to other bloggers and they will love your blog.
      Best of luck with your new blog and have fun with it,
      Galit

      1. You are so welcome 🙂 I think a little encouragement is needed when pouring your thoughts & heart out onto a page – and you do it so beautifully. For me I’ve come to finally accept that the fear is down to lack of self-confidence. Somewhere, somehow we tell ourselves ‘it’s not good enough’ or ‘what will they think?’ – overcoming that is one of the greatest obstacles but sometimes you just have to take that leap of faith…. I’ve yet to miss the safety net as a result lol Which of course is a good thing… it pushes me that little bit further each time and I realise that it’s not so bad after all 🙂 X

        1. Awh… How true. Fear had stopped me from writing a lot in my life, but with the help of this blog and with the help of awesome people (like yourself) , I am more sure of abilities as a writer. Fear is still here, but it’s noblonger in the driver’s seat.

    Amen to that! I started as a kid. I gave it up several times. But it keeps me sane. I still feel a bit scared when I share whay I write, but it’s worth it

    1. I know… it is so scary to share my thoughts and words, but it is worth it. I learn that everyday through this blog.
      Thank you so much for commenting and for sharing your side. It’s nice to see that others have the same fears as me, lol. Makes it easier I guess.
