New Book; New Doubts (Thoughts)

A few months ago, a thought crossed in my head regarding starting a new book. It has been a year since I wrote and published my first (e)book, Let the Water Rise and Other Stories – a collection of my short fiction. I must admit – my book is young and free; scattered thoughts of my head, but dark and with touches of tragedy. It speaks my head and heart and I love it – I would not change it the way how others want it to be. If I do, then I am pretentious.

I am not an english native speaker, but I have served the book with my learned knowledge. After [and along the process of writing] the book, I have gathered bunches of lessons from different sectors of my daily living. It has greatly helped me.

I remember when someone asked me about the nature of my first book and the only word I could say was “tragedy.” Nothing else. It exudes how undeveloped I am.

At present, I am writing my next anthology, but I am having doubts. I [finally] have a concrete concept – stories with only 100 words – and different chapters; not only encompassing the nature of tragedy. But inside, my hands and head will not let me finish it. Probably because I still think it is not a ‘literature.’ I am in my drowning stage.

With you, my fellow readers and writers, I hope I can finish this journey. I am asking for your help; pieces of advices, wording tips, editing skills, etc. If you have anything in your head that you know will or can aid my process, I hope you can drop it in the comment section.

Every help is a blessing. Thank you!

All my gratitude.

  1. This sounds exciting. I wish you all the best with it. Your idea is great and you’ve asked for suggestions so may I offer some? It’s best to write everything you want to say and then trim the words. Sometimes, writing one story will give you idea for a new one so you won’t see the other one until you start the first one. Also, one hundred word stories have been done, so what about 99 words? It’s roughly the same but might draw lots of readers as it’s under 100. Another idea is to invite a photographer or artist to work with you to provide images that blend with your stories. A prolific amateur photographer would be ideal, as they have archives of material that haven’t been seen. And what better way to give a vote of confidence to a colleague than by inviting them to participate in your project. Best wishes and thank you for reading my thoughts. x

    1. Greetings, Sabiscuit! Thank you very much for your golden words; truly, they have contributed a great help to me. I have noted your suggestion on writing new stories, the 99-word stories concept, and the team-up with a photographer. I love your suggestions and it has served as a reminder to me. I am sure this will help me — a lot. Thank you very much, once again. I hope you will be able to ride with me in this journey. 🙂 If you still have other suggestions/recommendations, please feel free to offer it to me. Thank you!
