I’ve finished tidying up my novel word document, and while it feels good to have everything in order and everything usable, I deleted so many words that my word count is now about 30,000 words instead of the 50,000 I wrote during NaNoWriMo. This is necessary for the story I’m writing now, and I have… Continue reading Sharing (your writing) is Caring
If you’re not sure what NaNoWriMo is, I explain it in this post. This year’s National Novel Writing Month has been a refreshing experience for me. Outside of blogging I haven’t spent large chunks of time dedicated to creative writing for a few months, other than university. Regardless of word count, the discipline of writing… Continue reading Recap / NaNoWriMo 2019

Here are ten songs for the novel I'll be writing in November. 1/… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2019 / Playlist
You know what’s nearly here? NaNoWriMo 2019! (If you aren’t sure what that is, you can look at this post where I explain it.) I cannot tell you how excited I am. Last year I didn’t reach 50,000 words. I was going strong, and then halfway through the month I went to Sydney and things… Continue reading Less Than a Month / NaNoWriMo 2019
It’s that time again… Camp NaNoWriMo! I’ve set my goal, cleared my schedule (well, it didn’t really need clearing in the first place), and am ready to write. I’m ready to finish this novel that’s really more short story. I’m ready to like what I’ve written and send it out into the world. I’m motivated.… Continue reading It’s That Time Again / Camp NaNo 2019
