My tumblr: http://calmyournibs.tumblr.com - mostly I put up the same things as on here but I'll put some really short drabbles and such as well, things I never finished, my thoughts on books and writing exercises and it's just a little more flexible than my booksie here, so if you want to see me go there!
My name is Jenice, I spelled it wrong in my username hoping to stop people who I know in real life from discovering this little corner of mine.
Things you might want to know about me:
Location: Seattle Washington
Some information on my writing :
Inspirations : Music, other people's experiences, my own, reading, anything I find interesting or intriguing.
Things I like to write about : relationships, the non romantic type. I'm more interested in the kinds of relationships between parent and child, siblings, friends, especially friendships between the opposite sex that isn't romantic, I feel like they can be even more meaningful. I like to write about people experiencing new things or having sudden realizations, doing things they never thought they would, sometimes bad things, I even like to write the occasional sci-fi thing, but it's always more focused on the way this fictional environment/situation would affect a character. I love to write about things involving psychology. Sometimes I like to try for the abstract as well, like dream sequences or drug trips. In my occasional poetry I like to steer towards darker subjects, murder, loss of sanity, hiding from your problems...
My reading interests : mostly fanfiction at the moment, lol. I like to read character based novels about people in challenging situations who grow from them, or sometimes don't.
My writing proces s : I almost always start with an outline, which is basically me writing a long winded, disorganized summary of the story itself. Once that’s basically finished I’ll start writing the actual story, but it rarely sticks to the original outline which I almost always go back and change depending on how I write the story. Sometimes I’m struck with inspiration for a scene instead of a story so I will write the scene and then an outline, molding it around this one instance.
“The Hit List” – Novel
- Plot: Harlan’s best friend Joel was in a car accident a few months ago and is in a coma. Harlan, notoriously bad at dealing with his own emotions, tries to pretend he’s fine but is far from it. He realizes that he knows virtually nothing about his best friend that doesn’t involve himself and resolves to make up for it somehow. As things move along Joel and Harlan’s other close friends become involved and things get a little out of hand.
- Progress: I’m currently around halfway done (I hope) and may begin to upload what I have on Booksie at some point, as a very rough draft, but I’m not sure when that will be or if that will be the case at all.
And I’m always working on short stories and poetry.
Things I’m trying to work on: Variety in every sense that it applies to literature. Grammar and conventions, pacing my stories, narration.
Micellaneous information: I suffer from something called “missing word syndrome” and you may notice that there will be entire words missing from my work a lot. I try my best to proof read things usually but sometimes your brain corrects a mistake for you and you just don’t notice it on your read through.
The current novel I’m uploading at this point, Closet Space, although finished, is not something I ever plan on pursuing publication with because I don’t think it’s good enough. It was my first large project ever finished and although I really love it and it’s kind of my baby in a sense, it’s very….amateur writing and it’s much too long. I might try to rewrite it someday FAR into the future but for now it is something I am done with.
P.s. My profile picture is one of my drawings.
