NaNoWriMo – week 3 update
So… Week 3 huh? Yeah, it was pretty much a fail for me. I wrote a whopping 433 words on Monday and nothing for the rest of the week.
NaNoWriMo – week 2 update
We are almost halfway there! Week two is done and it was a good one. I had an Eureka moment and I’ve surpassed the 10K mark! My Eureka moment happened right when I was about to sit down to write – I finally know what the motif is for my villain in the story and…
NaNoWriMo – week 1 update
The first week of NaNoWriMo is officially over and I did as good and bad as I expected. Tuesday, the first day of November, was my best writing day. I managed to write 1.677 words, barely reaching the goal of 1.667 words. It was an amazing start but I knew that I wouldn’t be able…
NaNoWriMo has started!
It’s November first so that means that NaNoWriMo has officially started! I’m scared and ecstatic at the same time. Wondering how many words I can get in everyday. I want to push myself but not over my limits so I’ll only be writing in the evenings until it’s time for bed and during the weekend.
A Neurodivergent Guide to NaNoWriMo
I thought why not make my own NaNoWriMo guide; one specifically tailored for me. A guide for all my neurodivergent people out there who really struggle with deadlines and always feel like there are not enough hours in a day. And not to overwhelm anyone, including myself, this guide is comprised of only 3 objectives.…
Writing from a picture
I don’t know about you but I love it when the ground is covered in a blanket of fog. It doesn’t matter to me how cold it is or if I’m running late. When I am met with a view of mist kissing the ground on early mornings, with the sun barely making it over…
The end of Letters to September
I did it! I wrote 30 pieces of short stories, poetry and flash fiction in the month of September and I leaned a great deal about myself and my writing during the process. And I know this post might be a little late since it’s already the 5th of October, but I have my reasons…
Creating your own inspiration
When writing every single day from prompts you sometimes run into an obstacle called inspiration, or more precisely the lack thereof. At least I do sometimes. A prompt alone can help with creating a story so you don’t have to start completely from scratch but it cannot always guide you in your inspiration for said…
Letters to September – an update and a little change
I’m officially halfway through my Letters to September challenge and I am loving every moment of it so far. Writing pretty much every single day can sometimes be a challenge in itself but I found that if I focus for at least a few minutes I can get something down on paper. And the moment…
Find joy in small things
This morning was like every other. Got up around 7am, got myself and my daughter dressed and ready for school. Breakfast was enjoyed and lunch was made. Well, lunch for my girl not for myself, that would have to wait when I got back from dropping her off at school. Now here is where something…
