On novel writing

It's so frustrating...I've got like TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND words down (it sounds like more in caps I think) but it's all short story-ish. I'm aiming for a novel, not a ... compilation. Nothing is going together right.

Have any of you ever written an entire book? Did you plan it out before hand or just ... start? I have a bunch of good pieces, but it's useless without a theme or something.

Maybe I need to plan more and start again.

Advice? Consolation?


  1. I have been writing my novel for almost 8 years. I haven't looked at it in 8 months ... I hate it as much as I love it. I have no idea what I'm doing and I have no advice. ;)

  2. Yeah I feel like every time I get into it again it's something completely different.

  3. I'd like to write a book (not a novel), i know what i want to do but i just can't start anything. Frustrating.

  4. I have thought of a novel over and over, started writing one several times, outlined a few, drew a few sketches for a few...and that is where it ends. Great ideas, no follow through!
