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.
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…
Not feeling like yourself
Do you ever get the feeling that you are not living your life for yourself? That everything you do seems to be for someone else? Be it an actual errant you have to run or that simply living your own life somehow feels like you’re doing it for the gratification or validation of others. I…
Let’s talk NaNoWriMo
I have been dabbling with the idea of writing a novel for many years. I even have some ideas lying around with semi completed settings and backstories. However, it was always just that, an idea, but I never pushed through and actually sat down to write the whole damn thing. And ideas will not come…
