Greetings everyone! Welcome back to another writing post!

Read a thousand books, and your words will flow like a river.”
― Lisa See, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

Welcome back everyone! I know it’s a bit early for this but I have to talk about writing my story because I can’t wait for the end of the month! I have four another writing journeys hereherehereherehereherehere, and here which you should check out those out. I’m currently doing Camp NaNoWrimo and I talked about that in my last writing post. I was at 7602 words and now I’m at 23973 and almost at 100 pages. I think I’m at 92 pages. I’M SO CLOSE.

I was going to reach 50,000 but I sort of gave up a couple days ago and I had to change my goal to 25,000 words. I’m a lot about to make that goal but let me tell you it was been a struggle! I wrote like 8,000 words of the beginning and then I decided to write the ending because I had more inspiration of that. So I wrote the ending and I spent a lot of my time jumping back and back forth from writing the middle / beginning and editing the ending. Now I got started on this other thing that I thought could work as like a other story but now I’m like weaving it into the other book.

It’s been pretty crazy writing this. I’m trying to pull through and finish it. I don’t know if that will happen this month or next month but if I can get 25,000 words or more in this month. I want to get to 50,000 word maybe a little more than that. Because I want it to be something like 200 pages. I think that is a good amount because I don’t want to over play this story or stretch it out. I’m not going to give out a lot about this story because I’m scared if I do and then I give up then that would be weird. I like this story though because it’s loosely based off of my experiences with things like depression.

As I’ve been writing that I’ve been writing Annabelle Strange because I want to finish that. Like I’m almost done. I’m thinking like three or two more chapters than that’s it. Then I’ll be writing The Space Between Us and Daybreak. Soon after that I’ll began the Forbidden Forest. Or I’ll just create a better schedule because I need to get writing because it’s been so longggggg!

Okay I’m done talking. I just wanted to rant before Camp NaNoWrimo was over. After I reach 25,000 which will hopefully be today I’ll go onto 30,000 words. My 13 Reasons Why review is coming up Wednesday and then Spiderman: Homecoming review. You guys should comment questions and other things that I should talk about because I don’t have a lot to talk about for these posts. If you would like to read one of the stories that I mention then go to my links page . I hope you enjoy this rant! I post once a week every week. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!

― Vladimir Nabokov

Hey! Welcome back to writing with me! I have four another writing journeys hereherehereherehere, here and here which you should check out.So I know it’s been awhile because I didn’t feel like writing. I was finishing school then I started Daybreak then I got two chapters of Daybreak out but then I went to camp for the first time ever and then I came back and I was home for awhile and I just didn’t write. Then I went to ALA which was amazing and then I came back and started writing all my original stories.

I’ve liked completely dropped all my fanfiction which sucks because I’m so close to being done with Annabelle Strange and it’s killing me *i also have a bunch of shit happening in my personal life right now but we don’t need to talk that. I’m doing CampNaNoWrimo and I’m doing great so far. I’m doing a story that I started awhile ago but I’m getting back to now because I feel like I can finally write it and my brain is like you need to get this out. I’m using a lot of personal experiences for this but I’m adding more to add more to the main character and her sister.

I’m at 7602 words right and I want to reach 50,000 words because that is the goal I have set up. I like I can do it if I put my mind to it and just focus. I have myself writing more than a 1,000 per day and right now according to the website if I keep doing then I should met my goal before the end of July. Whether my book will be finished or not, I have no clue. I’m not planing on it being some get epic but I have a lot to get out there because I know how I want this to end. Well I have an idea on how it should end and I want to keep that ending because I feel like for this story it’s a good ending. The topic the book deals with is a big one but I don’t what that to be the focus, the book is so post to be about dealing with the death of a loved one and not how they died.

Well that was fun to rant about! Sorry this was short but I have to go finish my words per day for today before it becomes the fourth of July. Thanks for hanging with me! I have my Mind Games review coming soon so look out for that. I also watch Miraculous and I have lots of feelings on that so you know review coming and CAREY CORP FOLLOWED ME ON TWITTER! You guys should comment questions and other things that I should talk about because I don’t have a lot to talk about for these posts. If you would like to read one of the stories that I mention then go to my links page . I hope you enjoy this rant! I post once a week every week. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!

Writing with Gigi! | Part VII

Greetings everyone! Welcome back to another writing post!

If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
― Toni Morrison

Sorry since isn’t on time, we have the internet set up so that I can’t write post pass six o clock soo that’s a problem. I have four another writing journeys here, here, here, here, here, and here which you should check out. I went on break over the month of March which gave me a lot of time to write. Sort of. I feel like I wrote a lot but I probably didn’t but something awesome happened so I’m going with that I’ve been writing a lot.

I finished Skyfall in March which was soo great! I’ve wrote the final chapter and the epilogue and that final chapter took me so long to finish. It was 8,000 words and I don’t know how it started but I couldn’t stop writing and in the end it was 8,241. Since I have this story on three websites, I had to just copy and paste the words onto the sites repeatedly. Doing it with Ao3 and Wattpad was easy but doing it with fanfiction was not fun and easy. It wouldn’t let me post all the words at once so I spent the whole copying and pasting paragraphs onto the draft.

I’m so happy that I finished it though. I had been writing it for a year and I got to finish it and it felt so good. It doesn’t end on a happy note with the characters not ending up together and the ex-girlfriend dying which is weird because it is mainly a romance story but I guess that is what you get when you write a insta love relationship. I like that it end like that because now I can get into the second book which is going to angsty as hell and I’m so excited. The second book is called Daybreak and it’s only going to be posted on Fanfiction. I have no idea when I’m going to get started on it, I think I’m going to update Annabelle Strange and The Space Between Us a little more before I start it.

I was able to finally update Annabelle Strange and The Space Between Us which was fun because I was finally got to write something else. It was fun. Annabelle Strange got a sad Christmas filler chapter and then The Space between Us was going to have a larger chapter but then I felt because I hadn’t updated in so long so I just posted a short chapter.

I’ve also started doing Camp NaNoWriMo with a story that I started during my break while I was traveling through Maryland. I’m excited to do Camp NaNoWriMo because I tried doing NaNoWriMo and I failed. Hopefully I can do it this time, I mean I’ve already gotten started and I think that if I just try and write a little everyday then I can do it. I’m in a cabin and it’s like so you can socialize with other people doing this and I’m like so antisocial and I got anxiety from doing my introduction. My story is new and so exciting.

That was really fun to rant about. I’m excited about this year when it comes to writing, I’m off to a good start. I need to get back to my Moral Instruments reviews because I’m running out of time and I need to review Beauty and the Beast because damn it was great! You guys should comment questions and other things that I should write about.. I hope you enjoy this rant!  I post once a week every week. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!

Writing with Gigi! | Part VI

Greetings Earthlings! Welcome to another writing post!

Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” 
― Louis L’Amour

Fun story before we begin. So you know I usually post these at the end of the month and I did post a writing post but everything that I wrote had disappeared. So I deleted it and now I’m here rewriting for the month of February. Then I started rewriting I was almost done and then I went back to finish it up and half of it was deleted!!!! This the third time that I have rewritten a blog post because it didn’t save. My least favorite books of the year had a lot more on it but than none of it saved so I had to restart which really sucked.

Welcome to my first writing post of 2017. Right now I haven’t much. I’m trying to focus on other things like I’m doing a musical, I’m in school right now, and I’m trying to keep up with writing new blog post. I’m also  reading a lot! I have like made it pass 50 books just for this year. I’m trying to get my writing back up and hopefully be able to get those back out into the world.

I have writing goals for this year which are mainly just write without a plan and just try and go with the flow because some reason I can’t ever write like that so now I’m going to try. Another one is to finish Skyfall before March because as you made know I only have a couple chapters left. I know I can do this but I just need sit down and get focused! I’m currently writing a new chapter for that so look out! Another goal which is one that I have had for almost two years is to finish Son of a Demon. Thing with son of a demon is that I’m writing it in a notebook and not on my computer which I thought it would be easier and sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t. Just never really have time to write anything in it because I’m always busy. but this year I’m trying to write a little of it everyday which is good.

 Annabelle Strange is still on hold for right now but at first I was trying to rush the ending and it was really stressing me but I think it better when I just write and I’ll finish it when I finish it. I think I have to much fun with Annabelle Strange because whenever I miss it and I just go back and reread it. It’s just a story that I really really love. Maybe it’s because it was my first fanfiction or maybe because I just have such I great love for Harry Potter. It’s just a blast to write and I love all my characters. I’m so excited for when I can go back and write it and finish it up and then go and start the second book because I have so many plans!!!!! The Space Between Us is also still on hold and that is also driving me crazy. I just want to be getting back to all my other story because I’m getting sick of Skyfall which is why after I finish it I’m going to be taking a break and then going to start writing Daybreak.

Who’s excited? ME!!!

That was really fun to rant about. This was my first writing post of the year and I’m really excited for this year because some good things are happening like Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield made out so Spideypool is real! I feel like Phan will be real too. You guys should comment questions and other things that I should write about.

Writing with Gigi! | Part V

Greetings earthling! Welcome back to the last writing with Gigi for the year!

Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.”
― William Faulkner

I have three post following my weird writing journey herehere, here, and here  and you should go check those out. If you read my last post then you should knew that I went through so hard stuff so I wasn’t able to write a lot. Now I have finished exams, I’m out of school and I’m being really lazy but I’m writing now! I’m back to writing my stories and braining storming like crazy. I already have like fifty different story idea in my head and I’m debating about writing them.

I’m so close to finishing up Skyfall with only five chapters left. I’m currently writing Skylar and Renesmee’s first date and I’m having so much writing that so far. The plan for Skyfall right now is to finish it up before the end of the year and then move on to sequel which I came up with a name. It’s going to be called Daybreak and it’s going to be crazy! I figured out how to delete those really weird comments off Skyfall on Fanfiction which I’m also very happy about because like I have said before they were so weird. I’m alway doing little short stories based off some of my original characters in Skyfall so that’s going to fun. I don’t think I’m going to post Daybreak on Wattled because it’s more popular on other websites.

Annabelle Strange is currently on hold for now because I’m trying to finish Skyfall but that’s also very close to being finished. I want do like three more chapter then a epilogue and then began the sequel to The Creature of Many Faces which will be called Annabelle Strange and the Forbidden Forest as I talked about before. A lot of people enjoy Annabelle on Fanfiction  and I’m very happy about with it having sixteen reviews. I don’t think that it’s more popular then Skyfall but Skyfall isn’t that popular either. I’m proud of both of them so.

Space Between Us which is on Wattpad  is also on hold due to the fact that I’m trying to finish two different stories at the same time. I also wrote another hella depressing poem while I was at because I sort of going through some stuff that I talked about it in the last post and it carried to the beginning of December but like I said school is over so I’m much better and I’m just relaxing because if I get really stressed out I get really bad headaches.

Stories like Son of Demon that I have mention and aren’t fanfics I still haven’t really been writing with. I wanted to finish Son of a Demon this year but I think it might be a while before I finished that because I wanted to finish it last year and that didn’t happen so I’m going to just finish it when I finish because it’s not a story that I want to but presser on it right now. I’m going to back to this Christmas story that I started in earlier in the summer which is fun to write because it takes place in the year 1999.

That was really fun to rant about. This was my last writing post for the year, I can’t believe 2016 is over and I’m so happy about that because this year sucked!

Greetings earthling! Welcome back to writing with Gigi!

You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
― Madeleine L’Engle

I have three post following my weird writing journey here, here, and here should go check those out. I started NaNowrimo because I heard a lot of people do it and some authors get started this way but I started in day 13 and then I got too busy to continue doing it. I started it mainly so that I could get the first part of SOD typed into my computer but that’s not going to happen. I felt so bad. I had always wanted to do but there were some many things that happening!

I haven’t written at all this month. I keep trying to write something with an Annabelle Strange chapter and I’ve been writing it for a couple of days and I’ve only reached a thousand words. I’m probably just change the chapter name then just cut it short because I’m over it! I guess I have writer’s block but that’s when you don’t know what to write. I have a weird thing were I know what I want to write but I just don’t know how to put it down. I have been writing a lot of sad poems about unrequited love and other because that is my life at the moment because I’m sad. It really help though because I don’t really have anyone to talk to.

I’ve started a lot of stories and I don’t get back to them. I’m just trying to push through everything to get through this stupid writers block. I was hoping to finish Skyfall or Annabelle Strange before the end of the year and that is still my goal but I really have to get through this if I want to complete that goal. Annabelle Strange isn’t as close to being finished as Skyfall but I could still make it. Skyfall only has six chapters left and I really want to finish that. When I’m done with both stories, I’m then just going to focus on the Space Between Us for awhile and then start the Annabelle Strange sequel, Annabelle Strange and the Forbidden Forest coming soon and then the Skyfall sequel and the title is unknown at the moment.

Exams are coming up so I’ll probably take another break to focus on that and then start posting more chapters during my break. I’m just going to post chapters that are easy and won’t cause me a lot of stress so they will probably be poorly written and short but I’m okay with it being like that for a while. I’ve said this a lot recently and you are probably tired of me saying but I’ve been so busy. It has just been school, homework, training violin, writing these blog posts, play practice, dealing with depression, and suffering of a lot of headaches.

That was really fun to rant about. I feel sort of better but not really like I said I’m going through a rough time. You guys should comment questions and other things that I should write about.

Greetings earthling! Welcome back to writing with Gigi!

I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I’m afraid of. ”
― Joss Whedon

*THE KING

I decide that these writing posts are going to be like one per month so even though by the time this gets out it will be November, this post is typically my October post. I have two other writing post you can read them here and here.

 I have soooooooooo much to talk about in this blog. First is that I have finally finished the first part of Son of a demon *yayayayayay!!!!. If you don’t know, I’ve been writing this story  since last year and now I’m finally getting somewhere. If you want you can read the story on Wattpad*, it’s not edited yet so don’t judge. I’m so happy about where this story is going and I introduced a new character and she is hopefully going to be really fun to write about. I’m taking a break from it though because like I said I never have time to do anything.

Secondly, in my last writing thing I talked about writing a troyler fan fiction and guess what? It happened! The first three chapters of it are up on wattpad and ao3 and it already has 11 votes and over 100 views which makes me so happy. It’s  been a lot of fun lately. It’s a very angsty story and if like I said it’s sort like star wars and what I mean like that is that it is in a universe that is like the star wars one.

I haven’t posted or written anything for my stories in two weeks. I’ve been so busy with school and family and cross country that writing isn’t one of my top priorities at the moment. I mean I want to write and I have so many ideas that I just want to start writing but I never have enough time. My Skyfall fanfic has only six chapters left and I’m having a hard time finishing it up. Maybe because it’s been one of my favorite things to write but I’m trying to write chapter 10 and I can’t seemed to write. I have picked the ending that I want. At first it was going to be three books but now it’s two books with an ending that I like and no one else probably will.

Annabelle Strange is doing really well. It’s almost at 200 hits on Ao3 and has a lot of reviews on fanfic. I don’t think that I’m going to keep posting it on wattpad after I finish and same with Skyfall. I’m not going to keep posting them on wattpad because I only have one popular post on wattpad and that’s the space between us. I’m trying to write another original story that I had the story board for and I didn’t realize at first but one of the characters I wrote is based off someone I know. Then I realized I have like fifty other characters based off my friends.

Well this has been fun. That was everything I need to rant about and I feel so great! You guys should comment questions and other things that I should write about. If you would like to read one of the stories that I mention then click the page titled Stories by G. I hope you enjoy this rant! My throne of glass series reviews will be coming up next with Heir of Fire and another top 10 list.  I post once a week every week. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!
