JOHN GREEN I NEED HELP!!!! First of all: OH MY GOD YOU’RE NUMBER ONE!! CONGRATULATIONS!! Ok, so odds are you wont even ever read this comment, let alone answer it but I really need your advice.
So, I’m trying really hard to be a novelest even though I’m still a teenager but it’s not really working for me. Most of the time I’ll write 2-6 chapters in the book and then get a new idea and completely forget about the original book I was writing. Except I got the idea for the currant book I am writing a year ago and I’ve been writing in it for one year, one month and three days(give or take a few weeks). I have 112 pages and 19 and a half chapters.
I started out really well; I was writing a chapter a day sometimes more and most of my friends thought it was a really good book and I could get it published some day. But over these past few months I write, like, a chapter ever two months and I feel like I’m loosing the main character’s voice; like I don’t have the ability to be him anymore.
So I guess my question is: How do YOU write your books? Do you have any advice for me? Should I just stop trying to write novels and stick to short stories and poetry and stuff? How do I finish this book without ruining it?
