Summer Project and beyond

Postby Pony » June 29th, 2020, 4:51 pm

I decided a few months ago that I wanted to make a writing blog/website to post blog like writing. Sort of what we do for our sims. I want to get the website launched by September 1st and I have a ton to work to do. But I'm super excited about it.

I want to have ten entries ready to post. So far I have the first section done and just got the first crit back for the second. And it's a little harder to stomach than the first one. But I'm learning lots about writing. It was a lot of fun taking what I learned from the first crit and applying it to next section. And I'll continued to get better and better. It's so exciting.

I haven't thought up a name for the website yet, but I'm sure it will come to me. My ultimate goal is to gain experience for writing full length novels.

Right now I'm posting this to procrastinate looking at the crit :lol: But it has to be addressed eventually.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

Congrats on the site setup! And nothing on the web is truly finished so...:spin: (I was gonna say that writer friends have told me that online writing versus published is worlds apart but the big difference is critique, which you're getting and taking like a champ)

You guys seriously made my day! You're all so awesome!

I did go through the crit yesterday and made some changes. I'm waiting to hear back from my step mom who is critting it too before I decide if the second draft is done. I started going over the third section with what I've learned in mind and should have that ready to be looked over soon.

Next step I think is deciding between a hosting site. Whether or not to start simple with Blogger or LiveJournal. Or just go for it with Square Space.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!
