Hello all :wave:

I swear I'm not dead, I just don't post much. My current writing project is coming along well! I've finished developing the characters so now I am working on a chapter by chapter outline of the story. The more organized I am before the actual writing begins the better. 

I don't know if anyone else does this but I create two outlines for a story: arc and chapter by chapter. Arcs for me are the big picture of events that occur in the story that are later broken down piece by piece into chapters. I have three arcs planned out and I don't know how many chapters each arc will have. Either way it will be a bit time consuming but slow and steady wins the race! 

It's been difficult to dedicate a lot of time to the writing with my summer job, working out, hanging out with friends who I won't see until next summer when we go back to college, etc. Even though I'm usually home by early afternoon I'm so tired that sometimes I just :faint:

Wish me luck, hope all of your summers are going well :)

I'm a bit of a perfectionist, and I probably worry too much about what other people think.

I am currently studying Biology and French, so I am consumed with studies. However,
fanfiction and story writing are hobbies of mine. I enjoy posting my stories online to receive constructive criticism. I primarily like to write romance and adventure stories. Some stories take longer than others, but it's a challenge I feel all artists face and the best thing you can do is take it at your own pace.

I prefer quality over quantity so I can't say that I'll post a new chapter every week, but I will try to post as regularly as I can.
