The Literary Horse

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”~ Ernest Hemingway

I’ve recently got back on the literary horse. It is something that I have been wanting to do for a very long time now. And only this past week, I began the new adventure of writing short stories again. I am a little bit excited about it.

It’s been going well so far. I noticed that when I finally stopped to begin the project that I kept going for almost six hours and written 19 pages using Microsoft Word Document.

The first day though, I kept writing until my hands were practically numb from typing away on the keyboard.

I’ve written other short stories before, and I have been told by people that I should publish them. But I lost them in the move when I left my ex-girlfriend as they were stored on an old computer. But I doubt that even she could get to them as the mother board had died before I moved away.

I probably had enough short stories to publish a small book that would have been a collection of stories. But oh well. Time for something fresh!

Since then, I have had a few ideas of what I wanted to write about and what kinds of stories that I wanted to come up with. But this time, I’m composing the story in a different way than I have done before in the past.

As certain ideas or scenes come to mind, I am writing them. And then I intend on surrounding those parts with the rest of the story. I really wanted to concentrate on getting the raunchy sex scenes out of the way first before I write the other parts to it. I need to make sure that it doesn’t sound like just a fetish story.

I was surprised with myself though the first day. I normally have tons of problems trying to figure out just how to start writing with the first paragraph. For this project, I had no troubles at all. I pulled up a new document and went to work. I finished the opening section of the story and got done a few of the amorous parts.

I’m proud of myself for being able to do that.

I wrote more today and (according to the Word Document) I have started on the 29th page, and have over 13,000 words to it written. And I have yet to fill in the other parts to the story.

But I’ve learned my lesson. I will no longer go for a long stretch of hours. I will take more breaks in between and learn to stop once in a while. My hands and arms hurt after that first day of writing. Perhaps only write so many words a day and then stop would work better for me.

I’m hoping that this goes well. Wish me luck!!!
