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 —— #2

Time for another NaNoWriMo update! I'm still on track so far! I usually end the night about 300 or 600 words above where I need to be. But a headache made it hard to concentrate yesterday, so I'm only a handful of words ahead now. I found more of the plot this past week. Instead … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update —— #2

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

2021 goal updates

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

A writer’s journey (part eight) – blogging, more research, and twitter

It has been a while since I’ve written one of these. I’ve been meaning to, but my busy schedule took control for a little bit. I have three topics in the title, because I’ve seen the most growth in these areas. Let’s go one by one. Blogging As I mentioned here before, my blog has … Continue reading A writer’s journey (part eight) – blogging, more research, and twitter

NaNoWriMo update #3

Welcome back! The third full week of NaNoWriMo has passed! I almost don't believe that it's the end of November. I keep thinking that Thanksgiving is coming up but believing that it's still like two to three weeks away. NaNoWriMo has been easier again since my work flow (from that paying job) started going down. … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update #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
