The Fun of Writing Research:
These past few days have got me thinking about how bad this society has been. People not helping others in the street, and saying they deserve what they get. My research for this next story has led me to Superheroes. I watched a documentary on HBO that chronicled Superheroes, and I was amazed. They help the homeless, and come in contact with real criminals without harmful weapons. I wish society had more of them instead of the people out there now a days. The people who do nothing while watching someone choke, and the people who walk by when someone else has fallen.
My latest stories have even led me to research guns, and conceal carry. I have read all kinds of things on it, and that people are afraid of weapons because of the horror stories about it. I see no issue with it, and I want to conceal carry eventually because it can protect me from rapists and pedophiles. It can act as a useful tool of protection. Cops do not like it I noticed, but they should take a better look outside because I see stuff they don’t. I see people who will stand by while a person gets murdered, and I have heard people ignore the screaming of victims. That is another reason why real superheroes help people, but they do not carry guns.
All this research has led me to craft the next story I am working on with guns, superheroes, and helping people. In the mean time I am doing more heavy research on it all to make people take notice. Maybe it will change someone’s mind about weapons, and superheroes.
Being a writer is not always easy especially if you are starting out. There are so many new things to learn about like blogging, using the social networks called twitter, facebook, learning how to network… The list goes on, and on. Some writers give up because it is so overwhelming, but the truth is the more you practice at it the better you get. Sometimes you stay up late at night wired on voltage, and head full of ideas. Sometimes you really do not feel like writing, and only reading which is okay.
The point to all the late night writing sometimes is publication, and the end result of finishing something. To me that is the ultimate goal with why I am writing getting published, and changing the world with my view. I have already completed a novel, and I am in the stages of editing. It took me 4 years off and on for the rough draft of it. A lot of revisions I have to go through, and many more to go as of now. I am going to finish editing, and then after that I will type a query letter. The query letter is a letter to a literary agent, or publisher about your novel. You also have to worry about making the agent hooked enough to read. I have a pretty good idea of who I want to query. Research is another part of writing, and finding the agent to send your letter to.
To all aspiring writers out there do not give up the dream of getting published, and having your book end up on the shelves of Barnes and Noble. That is all for now, and I will keep you updated as I try to get published.
