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
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!
Hello hello. Wednesday is a busy day. Busy busy. Classes started back at uni this week and so far I've only had three of my four classes but they are all really exciting and interesting. 😀 I'm really looking forward to the rest of semester, which is not something I've wholeheartedly said before so that's … Continue reading The Pirate Code: Sometimes Guidelines Are Worth Following
First of all, thank you to everyone who read and commented on my WIPpet Wednesday post. I was pleasantly surprised that it had the most traffic of any post in a long time considering it totaled about 100 words and contained only one line of prose. Made me happy 🙂 Anyway, onto the real business... … Continue reading On a ROWl: A Terrible Pun
As you may have noticed, there have been a few changes around here. I've decided that in order to build and expand my author platform, I need to readdress the purpose and style of this blog. Originally meant to document the progress of a novel which has barely changed in the two years I started … Continue reading 5 Things I’ve Learnt About Editing
So it's only Wednesday and already I'm over uni despite it only being back three days. However, I did get a few rounds of editing done on Queen of Hearts before I had to return to my academic reality. If last year is anything to go by, I'm unlikely to do much more on the editing front … Continue reading The Mid-week Blues
So apologies for slipping again into one of my too frequent digital silences. I've been experimenting with twitter, selling bread (not a euphemism, I worked at a bakery) and avoiding packing to move back to the big smoke for uni. Now I'm writing this blog post to further put off said packing. Oh, and I've … Continue reading Aaannndddd, I’m back. Did you miss me?
I've spent the better part if the last week editing Queen of Hearts. It has been really interesting to read over little scenes and incidents that had completely forgotten about. And it has taught me two things; 1. I still love the story even after all these years (which I was beginning to doubt) and … Continue reading A Romantic Glimpse
Is it Wednesday already? The week has flown by. First, some exciting news, I passed a few milestones this week: 2000 individual views and 200 followers so thank you to everyone who has found enough merit in my ramblings to subject yourself to it in the future. 😀 Now, onto the main business of today, … Continue reading Fabled Motivations
I cannot believe it is already the fourth Saturday of NaNoWriMo. The weeks have gone so fast and unfortunately, I have been so preoccupied that I have let my writing fall by the wayside. I am now 8000 words behind which I can probably recoup but I just have absolutely no motivation. I have not … Continue reading The Notebook, NaNo Edition, Part the Fourth
