So Much Catching Up…

From the looks of the blog, I’ve been away for a year without updates. A lot has happened in my writerly life in that time, I just haven’t taken the time to come back and update here. So I’ll run down a brief list of what I’ve done… Last May I attended the DFW Writer’sContinue reading “So Much Catching Up…”

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2016

Since apparently NaNoWriMo is the only time I can convince myself to set aside writing time, I will be participating in Camp NaNo this April. I am excited to use this opportunity to hopefully finish out the manuscript I started in November. I passed the 50k word mark for NaNoWriMo and I think another 30kContinue reading “Camp NaNoWriMo April 2016”

With a Fizzle…

So I did Camp NaNoWriMo for July. Technically, I’ll have won once I verify my word count. Yet, this is the least exciting victory yet. Back in April, I churned through 30,000 words for Camp NaNo and felt genuinely accomplished. It was a challenge, but not impossible. After doing NaNo in November, writing only 30kContinue reading “With a Fizzle…”

On The Brink

I officially have 2,105 words left until I win National Novel Writing Month! As I am poised on the brink of 50,000 words, I wanted to take a moment to reflect. I thought I would post more updates, but I got carried away in the writing (imagine that) and didn’t come here to post. However,Continue reading “On The Brink”

NaNoWriMo Numbers Update 1

We are currently on day 4 of National Novel Writing Month. This is my first time honestly trying NaNoWriMo so I was pretty nervous about whether I would be able to make my words for each day, since I need to do about 1,667 to finish on time if I write every day. Here’s theContinue reading “NaNoWriMo Numbers Update 1”

I Think I’m Not a Planner

I’ve spent the last few weeks thinking about planning my NaNoWriMo book. Please note that thinking is the key word there. I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to take 12-ish years worth of ideas and slap them on paper as an outline that is actually of any benefit. So far, I haveContinue reading “I Think I’m Not a Planner”

November, Here I Come

I have, in the past, halfheartedly said I would do National Novel Writing Month. I even had one April where I started Camp NaNoWriMo. However, after about 5,000 words I realized that the story I was working on wasn’t clicking and I needed to let it go (at least for the time being). However, IContinue reading “November, Here I Come”
