If you’ve followed what happened on this blog a bit you’re certain to cry out: “Again?!”, and if you didn’t, well you should!
Now, what is this all about? “Tales of Ore? I don’t know that, what is it? Another one of his idiotic projects?”. If that’s what you’ve thought, then yes! You are totally right! That’s exactly it! It’s another writing project that I’m going to start and never finish… Or restart, if I want to be correct. Because yes, I have already written part of that story, some of it which has been posted on this blog in French and in English, but I never got the courage and the determination to continue it and to go all the way.
Tales of Ore, if you’re interested (if not, why are you here?), is a fantasy story I’m writing. The first one actually, my first story ever. I’ve been thinking about it for quite a long time and writing it bit by bit for a few years now. Sadly, however, it has never gotten anywhere really interesting or productive… I’ve stopped not even halfway through the first part of the story and haven’t written a word since… I try to pick it up from time to time but never manage to get far. That is precisely the reason I have decided to put this project in place!
“What is it this time?”, you may ask. Well! Let my explain.
It’s been some time since I’ve really gotten into writing a story, I’ve worked on a few projects of mine here and there, notably Echoes of Power and Stanley, but nothing very consistent (at least in my mind). Also, I haven’t been writing much either these last few months (except maybe poetry, which I have been quite productive at recently) and that bums me a little. So, having recently been renewing my interest/motivation for writing my stories I have decided to give myself a sort of challenge to motivate me and produce something.
The challenge: daily writing. I want to move forward with the story and there’s no secret: to write a book one has to write. So I have decided to write every day, a little bit of course, a minimum of five hundred (500) words on Tales of Ore. This is for two reasons. Number one, to make me write a little everyday. Number two, to finally manage to write Tales of Ore (which has been stagnating for months, years now…). These ‘parts’, as I have taken the habit to call them when I did this for Echoes of Power, will later be regrouped into real chapters, but for the moment here is what I promise: one part a day, everyday of the week (Yes! Even on Sundays!), with at least five hundred words. And that for a month.
Yes. Just one month for now. This is, sort of, a trial period to see if I can manage it. If it works out well, I will keep on going. If it doesn’t, well, revise my methods and start again!
So, yeah, in short: one part of Tales of Ore, 500 words, each day for a full month!
How about that?! Impressed yet? No? Aw…
Anyway. See you later today for part 2 (yes, part 1 was published this morning but it should’ve been uploaded yesterday so, whatever…)
And as always, enjoy!
