    I am writing a fantasy book, it´s gonna be a long story.
    Ich schreibe ein Fantasybuch. Es wird eine lange Erzählung sein.

    Note: Better use, "It is going to be" instead of "it´s gonna be" which is used in spoken English or in Poetry.

    I am writing (a) short story for (the) coming contests.
    Ich schreibe (eine) Kurzerzählung für die kommenden Wettbewerbe.

    I am searching for job/ new opportunities.
    Ich bin auf der Suche nach Arbeit /neuer Möglichkeiten (Karrierechancen).
    Ich suche Arbeit / neue Möglichkeiten (Karrierechancen).

    I am studying and learning German.
    You either say, "I am studying German" or "I am learning German" but not both. Studying is usually at the university level and learning at an institute.

    Ich studiere Deutsch. Ich lerne Deutsch.

    I am learning (about) German music, art, poetry, it´s really good and interesting.
    Ich lerne (über) deutsche Musik, Kunst und Poesie. Es ist wirklich gut und interessant.
    At the university you say, "Ich studiere deutsch Musik.,...... ".
