NaNoWriMo update —— #3

Time for another NaNoWriMo update! My story—Free—is going a lot better than it did a week ago. The first few days were rough since I didn’t know what to write. But a couple of days ago, I had a breakthrough with the plot. It seemed a little out of nowhere, but it helped build a … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update —— #3

NaNoWriMo update —— #1

Time for a NaNoWriMo update! This year, I’m rewriting one of my high school novels, my second novel called Free. I haven't touched the Word file in almost ten years, and I barely remember the story. I didn't go back through and read it before NaNoWriMo. Instead, I’m writing it from scratch, creating new scenes … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update —— #1

What I hope for out of NaNoWriMo

In eighth grade, my creative writing teacher introduced me to NaNoWriMo. I was thirteen at the time. NaNo was a way to express myself and to let some of the stories out of my head.  Did I do well? Nope! If I remember right, I didn’t even make it halfway. I didn’t do NaNo the … Continue reading What I hope for out of NaNoWriMo

Your friendly NaNoWriMo reminder

NaNoWriMo—National Novel Writing Month—is about a month away. If you don't know what that is, here's a link to an explanation. It’s probably the writing community’s most productive time of the year.

NaNoWriMo update — #3

NaNoWriMo is almost over! Four days left (if you count today)! I'm in about the same spot still. I can reach the 50,000 words goal by the 30th; I have less than 10,000 left. I should be able to sit down one day and write a lot this weekend. I've started to notice that I … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update — #3

NaNoWriMo update — #1

I started late this year. I wasn't able to start NaNoWriMo until last Thursday, which is unusual for me. But I had some stuff come up, so I got a tad behind. Luckily, I'm not five days behind as I was on that Thursday. Now, I'm only about two to three days behind. I can … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update — #1

Just around the corner: NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is just around the corner. It’s time to get all of our ideas together. (If you're confused on what NaNoWriMo is, I talk about it more in-depth here.) For me, as I'm writing this, I have less of an idea than I should. I'm not sure if I want to … Continue reading Just around the corner: NaNoWriMo

First lines given – #3

Welcome to First Lines Given! If that sentence confuses you, here's a link to where I explain what this is. Today's first line is by Ann Harrison-Barnes! (Happy early birthday, Ann!) She said: Such a sweet one! I rarely see snow, so I don't write about it often. Anyways, here's the result: On a cold … Continue reading First lines given – #3

It’s THAT time of year again

The emails are coming in! The ideas are getting written down. Oh, the time of the year where everything seems to be rushing on a time clock. There isn't much time left, but there's so much to do. And, gosh, it's almost November already? It's about time to write a novel on top of that! … Continue reading It’s THAT time of year again
