Routines and Writing / NaNoWriMo 2018

NaNoWriMo prep is in the air, and the closer we get to November the less I know what to do. On one hand, I love the thought of the challenge. Writing 50,000 words in one month; starting a new novel and literally writing the whole thing in thirty days. Ooh, I get excited thinking about […]

Been Reading

I love books and reading, but I rarely talk about them specifically, so here we are this evening! I thought I’d share five books: the two books I’m currently reading, and the last three I’ve read. Currently Reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte I thought I’d mention Wuthering Heights first because we all know I […]

Good Morning

It’s time for a blog post. Let me hear your cheers of joy. Can cheers be anything but joyful? Can cheers be sad? (I just looked up the definition and a cheer is a shout of joy, so there you go.) (Look at me, caring for your education/not wanting to lead you astray.) It’s lunch […]

Ready To Go / Camp NaNo 2018

It’s Camp NaNoWriMo once more! Held every April and July, it’s the build toward November, which is National Novel Writing Month. Keen as. If you remember, I wrote about Camp NaNoWriMo throughout April. (I explain what it is here and talk about my experience here.) Being the 29th of June (can you believe it?), tomorrow […]

Updates, Mostly

Blogging is the last thing I’ve felt like doing. I don’t know why. I get ideas, sometimes, but the thought of expanding on them is painful. I haven’t done much on my novel as of late either. Occasionally I open up the word document and try to add a sentence or edit a chapter but […]

Us, Today / Poem

What happens to me sometimes when I’m writing is a piece goes somewhere I’m not expecting it to. I can start off a poem with an intent, and then it goes in a different direction just because, which is fine, but that can result in the poem not being as personal to me as it […]

So It Begins

One of my sisters and I decided that we would read Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte at the same time, then talk about it. Our first goal is to read the first five chapters, which is fifty pages or so, then discuss; and so on until completion. This doesn’t seem like a hard thing to […]

April Camper

I’m sitting in the sunniest spot on the house; a small table by our kitchen. I’m eating an omelette and my tea has just been poured. It’s the third of April, and it’s time for April Camper! I did a list similar to this in March and I liked it, so here’s another one. It’s […]

Notebooks!

In an age where there are so many different ways to use technology, I want to talk about the humble notebook. Ah, paper. What I find interesting is that despite technology being so widely used, trends like bullet journaling are also rising and super popular. (Just as a side thought there.) I have a lot […]

The Art of Writing a Book

I am not an expert in writing. I may be naturally inclined to words (especially in comparison to numbers *shudders*) but that doesn’t mean I’m all knowledgeable. I don’t really know how to deal with writer’s block and I only know that a novel is typically between 55,000 and 200,000 words because I just googled […]
