​To complete my goal to write a mini novel of 20k words. I have to write 1k/word a day. About 3-4 pages. Today I'm free all day, so will try to write atleast 3k words and get some exercise done. My weekdays are full booked, so it will really be a challenge to complete 1k/word a day. Guess i have to do it in the mornings.

​Just started my 20k word story, and wrote about 600 words today. Im a discovery writer so I'm really excited what will happen next which makes me want to write more. Its like reading a book and not know what will happen. I just let my fingers move subconsciously. Its amazing. 


Also saw Ronaldo movie, he's a strong role model for me. A independent successful, good-looking, disciplined man. One thing i noticed mostly were that he said he had few friends in football. He lives a private life and after practice he goes home and are with himself or close friends. He is a loner, because he knows he will get all the attention and social events automatic from hes lifestyle anyway. So when he's free he doesn't want to meet people, he wants to focus on his things. This i found me and ronaldo have in common. I am a lone wolf with a rich social life, almost unwillingly social. The goal would  be to become so successful that i can live on my writing. Then i can truly become independent from other people and social pressure.

Hey my name is Henry. One of my role models is Hank Moody, not in every aspect but in some. This blog is about my RAW journey from mediocre writer (now) till I become a successful writer. My mother tongue is not english and my primary writing language is another language. My long term goal is to become a best selling author, but right now I'm crap. I live my life drinking, meeting women, getting heart broken, breaking hearts, working. I work in medicine research which is amazing, but that does not matter. I will write what i do, what i feel, what i hate, what i struggle whit and so on. Becoming a writer is hard as fuck, especially because you compete against everybody in the world who can write, which is quite a lot of people.

My first goal are:

1. finish short novel 20 000 pages in 1 month.

if i can complete my first short story before july ends, then i have what i takes. I'm far from thinking i will make it, but if i finish this first goal then my virginity has been broken. So goal is to write, not to write the best novel or with best grammar. Just think, write, think, write, finish. Most writers do everything but write, that is hard part. Its easy to think you have to be a perfectionist. Thinking " I don't want to write now cause i don't want to spoil this good story with bad writing, or thinking I'm not ready".

My philosophy is: Start before you are ready, and you will force yourself to be more then ready. I don't know how to write, but if i instead read everything about writing and never start writing it will be a waste. Instead, I'll start writing and write crap, i have to be bold and dare to be crap so i later then become gold.
