Welcome to Myers Fiction!
I wanted to give a big welcome to our new followers. There are 11 new followers in the last month and that’s pretty exciting for me! I’ve already received some exceptional comments and look forward to future engagements with everyone.
The Closing of a Story
With the end of September, I closed out the Frozen in Line series with what I’ve been told was a great ending. I hope you enjoyed it, and if you’re a little behind, or new to my story lines, go back and read the old story lines here. I enjoyed working on Frozen in Line, but I couldn’t have told you that would be the ending when I wrote the first episode. Let me know what you thought about it in the comments below. Parting with a story can be exciting and saddening as you leave the familiar and work on something new. Now to what to expect for October?
I will continue to write posts about the first draft process. Look for tips on how to get past the hard parts, some of my own life lessons, and resources to help you make your first draft the best it can be. While I promised a Halloween special storyline, life events have prevented me from taking the time I want with this storyline. I want to do this story right and give you the best writing I can. So there is no new storyline beginning this month. Watch for behind-the-scenes posts on Saturdays as I share some of my experiences with creating the stories I’ve shared so far. I’m going to take the rest of the year to work on planning out a fantasy novel and work on a story I’m extremely excited about that will begin next year.
Thank you for all the new readers and writers following Myers Fiction and all the veterans who’ve followed me since 2018. While I will continue to write no matter what, your ongoing support helps me keep focused on my goals and one day, giving you a physical book to share with family and friends. As always, keep writing, keep learning, and stay fresh, my nugs.
A Quick Peak into my Research
So with me beginning a different novel, I wanted to actually prepare for this one instead of pantsing the entire first draft. A lot of my writing tips posts are also relevant to me. I wanted to go outside of something I’ve already written and fell on my Fantasy series idea that’s been brewing in the background for a while. One of the first things I wanted to look at was my magic system. The thing about Fantasy fans is we love our magic systems and, though it’s never stated, we love unique magic systems. So while I’ll use some familiar magic systems like wizards, witches, spells, and magical creatures. I have three other areas of magic within the novel at this point. I’m still fleshing out the details, but I hope to share my ideas soon. Check below for an example diagram I built off of what I did on paper.
