This week, I kept my ROW80 goals nice and simple. They were: Do initial read through of Daughter of Kings - Almost there, only 9 chapters to go. Reading through the print out, reading the scenes in order, has made it so much clearer where the work needs to be done and which scenes still need a … Continue reading ROW80 Update
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
I'm an in a slightly delirious state caused by tiredness so forgive me if I waver from the path a little (I had to try 'tiredness' three times before I spelled it correctly). Today is, of course, Wednesday. Which means WIPpets. Woo! 🙂 It is the 17th today. Yes. Let's try something from Chapter 17 … Continue reading What day is it? Who knows.
We are already 6 days into the New Year and for me, and I'm sure for many others, it has already been remarkably busy. I'm moving back to the city on the weekend and for there is so much to pack! I never realised how much stuff I had just lying around. Thankfully, this has … Continue reading Den Första Onsdag: WIPpet & ROW80
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!
This week has been rubbish. The assignments are piling up and generally I've just been feeling bleh. I wouldn't say I'm feeling homesick as such, at least, not for a place. But this is the week when the reality of months of not seeing all the people back home that I know, and love, and … Continue reading Honestly
The blue skies and bitter cold of winter have been replaced by spring’s grey clouds and rain. As the end of term draws increasingly near, I’ve been giving some thought to where I want to go once all my essays are out of the way. Although, with only one out of four essays completed, any … Continue reading For Once, Wednesday Didn’t Take Me By Surprise
Despite the persistent cold and the snow that fell last week, spring in Edinburgh is now well and truly in full swing. Flowers are blooming in the meadows and, when it's not raining, the sky is a brilliant blue. Unfortunately, I haven't really seen much of the weather because I've been stuck inside writing my … Continue reading Spring has Sprung
This year seems to be passing so incredibly quickly. I think it's partially due to that fact that I'm already 8 weeks into semester whereas back home, this would be the first week back. Which is insane. Despite essays dealines looming, or perhaps because of them, I actually wrote quite a bit of SSHK this … Continue reading How is it March already??
Hello all! I'm pleased to report that I had an amazing time in England and Wales over the last week though the return to reality was rather harsh. I did do a WIPpet Wednesday post last week as well but I scheduled it and didn't have the facilities to add it to the link so … Continue reading WIPpet for Wednesday
