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.…
Prompt: Don’t let this be goodbye // Letters to September – 30
You’re coming to a close, it’s been a wild one this September. We’ve been through so much together. Made new memories, started new projects, made new connections, and discovered deep secrets about ourselves. I’m going to miss you when you’re gone but I know that you cannot stay. Changing times and falling leaves on rainy…
Prompt: My heart on repeat // Letters to September – 28
I find myself again spiralling out of control. Holding on to broken pieces, forgetting how to fly. Dreaming about meadows at the break of dawn with a soft blanket of mist hovering above the ground. Hugging the tree line at the far back with the early soft streaks of the sun barely shining through.
Prompt: Midnight adventures // Letters to September – 27
When she can’t sleep all she does is stare at the wall waiting for the hours to tick by. But the clock doesn’t want to seem to move. All she wants are midnight adventures. Imagining picnics in flower-fields, walking secret trails through the forests, discovering places no one has stepped foot in before. Exploring forgotten…
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…
Prompt: Fireplace // Letters to September – 25
Fall has finally arrived in full. The air now holds a sharpness to it, wrapped ever so slightly in cold. The streets glow with orange hues of crispy leaves, like a blanket covering the floor. The warm smell of spices and pumpkin fields hangs all around us. The sun sets with an eagerness of young…
