New Writing Project!

Hey everybody!

As many of you already know, I am currently working on a new novel! In addition, someone very special and I are working on an inspirational article and poetry book! I am very excited to share this news with all of you!

Struggling with anxiety, I have come to see the importance of gathering all the inspiration we can find. Whether it’s befriending someone who will be there to support us through thick and thin, or learning how to deal with past disappointments, we all need to search for ways to help us through the most difficult of times. I’m hoping that this collaboration with a loved one will help bring peace and hope to all of us who struggle.

In addition to being excited for this new project because I find it important to share words of wisdom and motivation, I am also thrilled to announce that this will be the first time I write a book with this very talented writer – this will be their first piece of published work and we are very excited to share it with all of you.

Please stay tuned as I will continue to post more information about this upcoming project!

Thank You,

B.W. Ginsburg

Story Update!

Hey everybody! I just thought I’d take some time to update you on my current work in progress!

What Is It?

I’m currently working on an adult fiction novel.

What Genre is the Novel?

Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romance, and Mental Health Awareness

What’s It About?

Without giving too much away, it’s a love story about good vs. evil, mental health awareness, and positive change in the world.

How Far Along Am I?

I’m about 75 pages in!

What Made Me Want To Write This Story?

I wanted to write something creative and fresh. I wanted to write a love story that included some other fun elements such as time travel, good vs. evil, etc. While the book is partly realistic, it also contains some supernatural elements, all while providing an important message and not being too preachy.

What Are Some of the Included Themes?

Love, friendship, doing what’s right, good vs. evil, bravery, strength, mental health awareness

Staying Focused On The Writing

In my most recent post, I mentioned all the projects that I’m currently working on. I’m not going to lie, it’s been a while since I’ve worked on so much at once. While I’m really enjoying these new experiences, it can get a little hectic doing so many different things at once.

While there are other things (such as taking care of myself and being there for my family) that are much more important to me, writing is an essential part of my life – I love it. I still hope that I’ll one day become a professional author and, in the meantime, I plan on continuing writing, and publishing, as many fantastic stories and books as possible! Therefore, while I’m enjoying working on multiple projects, I have to remember that above all else(except for again, taking care of myself and being there for my family), I have to focus on my writing.

As much as I love writing, this isn’t always easy. Especially now with everything going on, I’m spending time advertising my merchandise, books, and of course, I’m spending some time blogging.

However, I have to remember how important writing is to me. Although it would be nice to sell some bookish merchandise, writing my books and publishing them for the world to see is even more important. Therefore, that is where I need to make sure my main focus lies.

So yes, I will continue creating bookish merchandise, advertising it, and hoping that I earn some sales. I will continue blogging, posting on Instagram, and of course, reading. I will also, above all, practice getting through my anxiety. Also, though, I will continue to work on my stories and books, because writing is a huge part of my life and who I am!

Please remember that doing many things at once can be a great experience, but that in order to make sure that you continue making progress with what you love, that you need to find a healthy way to stay on track!

Back to Writing!

Hey everybody! As I mentioned a little while ago, I’m currently working on a new novel! I took a small break from writing but will be getting back to it later today! I am very excited to continue working on this new project.

So what can I tell you about this new piece of writing that I’m working on? For one thing, it includes splash of romance in addition to being a fantasy. I came up with the idea after, for a few years now, having dreams about a crush that I had on someone from grades 1-5. For some reason, this person is constantly appearing in my dreams – even though I hardly ever think of him when I’m awake!

While I usually don’t read romance novels, I do appreciate a good love story. There have also been a few books that I’ve enjoyed that feature romance, especially James Patterson’s Sundays at Tiffany’s.

As many of you know, I enjoy writing fantasy stories and as a teen, I loved reading them. Naturally, I wanted to include fantasy in my current work and therefore, there will be some supernatural elements at play. The novel will be anything but your ordinary love story.

In addition to adding some romance to the story, another unique trait of the novel will be the style in which it is written. Without going into too much detail, it will be written in a way slightly different than the usual first or third person point of view. It will be easy to follow, but more complex in nature. This is a bit of a challenge for me, but I hope that it will be a very rewarding one at that.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peak into what I’m currently working on! Stay tuned for more information and don’t forget to check out my Instagram page! Thank you!

New Stories And Uncertainty

I’m currently working on a new novel, or at least, what I hope will become one. I have to be honest though and say that I’m not feeling as confident about this book as my other two. I keep wondering if what I have planned is enough to be made into a successful story. Is the plot good enough? Is the story idea fresh enough? Is it something readers would really want to sink their teeth into? So many questions are swirling around in my mind.

A part of me really likes the story idea and I feel that if I can write it well enough, then it’ll be successful. However, I do have doubts – I’m not above admitting that.

I don’t think I’m ready to give up on the idea quite yet though. In fact, I still like the idea quite a bit. I just need to really start diving into the story, after all I don’t have that much written yet. Also, there’s nothing wrong with me asking those I trust for their opinions, which I plan on doing.

I’m writing this post to tell you that it’s okay not to be 100% confident when writing something new – it doesn’t make you a bad writer or mean that your story isn’t up to snuff. All it means is that you’re human and that writing something good means so much to you, that you want to do a good job. While doubting in your abilities to write something extraordinary is never a good thing, caring that your work will turn out how you want it, is. As writers, we should want our writing to be something we’re proud of.

Remember that you are a talented writer. Look at your previous work and remind yourself that the wonderful words that you see came from your creativity. Trust your instincts and have faith in your abilities. Don’t give up on your story right away if you have some doubts, work with it for a while. If you still don’t like it, then you can work on something else, but don’t let temporary uncertainty make you question your talent as a writer.

An Exciting Reminder!

Hey everybody! This is just a reminder that in addition to my book, Rest in Piece, currently being available for purchase on Amazon.com, I am also working on a short story collection! I’m very excited for this project and have only one more story to complete. Then I will begin the editing process and hopefully soon after that, the book will be available for purchase!

The short stories will be a mixture of both fantasy and horror – two genres that I really enjoy writing and reading. While Rest in Piece leaned more towards young adult (though adults can certainly enjoy it as well), these stories are more appropriate for a slightly older audience.

I’d like to thank all those who have supported my writing and continue to do so! This is a very exciting time for me and I can’t wait to share this new collection with you once it’s finished! Please look for more updates as the weeks pass!

Also, don’t forget that if you’ve purchased my book, Rest in Piece, or will receive a copy (either the e-book or paperback) by April 28th, you can submit a photo of your copy displayed creatively to the Rest in Piece Photo Contest that I’m throwing! If you don’t feel comfortable being in the picture, that’s fine, you just have to display the book creatively for a chance to win! I wish all the participants the best of luck!

Thank You,

B.W. Ginsburg
