That Time I Wrote a lot of Poems

With the hype of NaNoWriMo I realised I never reflected on my 30-poems-in-30-days. So, here we go. I have three notebooks stashed in my guitar case, within them holding my songs and poems. I filled up half a notebook during my month of writing a poem a day; some small rhymes, others thoughts that were … Continue reading That Time I Wrote a lot of Poems

Looking Back, Looking Forward

It feels like a long time since I’ve sat down with a cup of tea and the spontaneity of writing a blog post, so it’s rather nice to be doing just that. With the reintroduction of Christmas music into my life and the weather warming up, blogging is go. This year has gone fast, and … Continue reading Looking Back, Looking Forward

NaNoWriMo: Recap

Safe to say, I did not reach 50,000 words this month. You may be thinking – Sarah, you still have three hours left of November, you can write more in this time! But let’s face it: I will not be writing anything after this blog post has been sent into the internet world. The first … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: Recap

NaNoWriMo: Day Seventeen

It’s been a while – all my words are being used up in a novel. We’re more than halfway through the month, and no two days have felt the same. One day I’ll write a lot and be ahead, the next three days I won’t write a thing and I’ll refuse to open the word … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: Day Seventeen

NaNoWriMo: Day Nine

It feels like I’ve been struggling through NaNoWriMo for weeks, not nine days. But, good news: I’m on target. I’m a hundred words ahead of schedule and feeling good about the words I’m putting on the page. Savoury muffins were cooked and enjoyed as a reward for writing 10,000 words (though for some reason the … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: Day Nine

NaNoWriMo: Day Seven

Day seven and I’m going strong! I’m currently 100 words ahead of schedule, so I’m hoping to do a lot of writing today so I’m ahead by a larger amount. On Monday (day five) I only wrote 200 words and it was quite discouraging, but last night I wrote about 3,000 words, and today 2,000 … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: Day Seven

NaNoWriMo: Day Three

As incentive, my reward for reaching 10,000 words will be to make a batch of savoury muffins and enjoy with much butter. I am not at 10,000 words, but one day I will be and we will all rejoice for the savoury muffin fest. In terms of the writing itself, I think I have direction. … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: Day Three
