It's the beginning of a new month, one week into my 23rd year on this large ball of dirt spinning around the sun, the start of ROW80 Round 2, and a few days into Camp NaNoWriMo so I'm keeping things positive. This is a new thing for me but we'll see how we go. I decided to … Continue reading Awesome April
Oops I Did It Again
Continuing in a long line of last minute, potentially poorly thought out decisions, I've decided to attempt Camp NaNoWriMo this year. Yes, it starts tomorrow. Yes, I haven't planned a thing. No, I have no idea what I'll focus on. This will basically be me for the whole month. I have no idea (really) what … Continue reading Oops I Did It Again
You are more important than your Novel
A reminder as we get towards the scary end of NaNoWriMo for 2015 - you, yes you, are much more important than your novel. Your health, physical and mental, is more important than a word count (whether you set it or an institution sets it). Look after yourselves! ❤
A NaNo Update
So we are just over half way through November and National Novel Writing Month which really, by now, should have been changed to International Novel Writing Month. Then we could call it Inno. Y'no? Anyway, it will come as no surpirse to those of you who have been follwoing me the last few years that … Continue reading A NaNo Update
Progress is Sweet
We are half a week into NaNoWriMo 2015, one day before my last ever undergraduate exam and two days before I have a final essay due. As always, NaNo falls precisely in the middle of final assessments in the southern hemisphere which provides us upside down folk with a few extra challenges. Thankfully, however, I … Continue reading Progress is Sweet
So soon…to doom!
Okay, that was maybe a little to melodramatic but hey, creative license and all that, right? In three days another round of NaNoWriMo begins and as usual, I've left my prep to the last minute because "I work well under pressure"* but I have finally decided what I'm going to do. Instead of choosing just … Continue reading So soon…to doom!
It’s Starting to Feel a Lot Like Christmas
Greetings my Wednesday blogging buddies! I hope you're all feeling amazing, productive and not too stressed in the lead up to the holiday season/end of the year. (Are we that close already?? Where did the last five months go??) As you may have noticed, I've been a little absent since the end of NaNoWriMo. I … Continue reading It’s Starting to Feel a Lot Like Christmas
The Sweet Taste of Success
November 30th. The last day of November. That last day of NaNoWriMo. This past month has gone so incredibly fast, no doubt in part thanks to the craziness of NaNo. I'm pleased to say that this year, my second year participating, I met all my goals and reached 50,000 words. If I'm honest, that count … Continue reading The Sweet Taste of Success
Update time again! Despite my consistently weak intros to my posts and regular complaints about Wednesday, I do actually enjoy both sharing my own progress with you all and reading everyone's excerpts. 🙂 So, progress. Writing is going well and I've surpassed my previous NaNo record by about 10,000 words which I'm super happy with. … Continue reading Merry Wednesday.
Sneaky Scheduled Post
I don't know if you've noticed by now but titles are REALLY not my strong point. As the above (highly witty and clever) title says, this post was scheduled. I am writing to you from the past. Oooooo spooooky... As it's Wednesday, I owe you guys a ROW80 update and a snippet from my WIPpet … Continue reading Sneaky Scheduled Post
