An Evolving Revision Process

What a weird, busy week and a half it's been. It's felt only like half a week, but somehow ten days got crammed into what felt like four, and here I am on a Wednesday feeling like it should be last Wednesday, and Memorial Day weekend is still coming up even though it just passed.… Continue reading An Evolving Revision Process

Warning: This Is A Feel Good Post

Who I am and who I want to be are different, no doubt, but they get a little closer on the spectrum of person as time goes on. Not consistently, mind you, but on average. Someone reminded me today that I'm "doing the damn thing," and ya know what? Hell yeah, I am! I've wanted… Continue reading Warning: This Is A Feel Good Post

Final Update And A Win! – Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020

https://www.tiktok.com/@dietspriteaunt/video/6820531534605454598 Although this book is far from being completely drafted, I MET MY GOAL AND HIT 50K WORDS YESTERDAY! And with three whole days to spare which is, like, incredible for me, the great procrastinator. This draft has simultaneously been the easiest and most difficult I've done so far. I'm learning skills to make the… Continue reading Final Update And A Win! – Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020 – The Home Stretch and Project Projections

I've had a series of unfortunate events occur, which hasn't stopped the writing train, but it has slowed it slightly. I got poison ivy from some yard work over a week ago, and it reached its worst this past weekend and into Monday. I've also been battling a sore throat for a few days which… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020 – The Home Stretch and Project Projections

CampNaNoWriMo April 2020 – Halfway There

I reached the halfway point in my camp project yesterday, just over 25k words, two days ahead of schedule. I have to say, after a shaky start, this feels damn good. And even better than how the word count feels is the plot itself. Vacancy has always been silly and loose, so in a way… Continue reading CampNaNoWriMo April 2020 – Halfway There

Things I Just Don’t Fucking Understand: People Who Hate Recipe Blogs

I want to be real clear right up front here: this blog is not about hating recipe blogs. You know those pastel-colored, swoopy-fonted blogs that it's been super trendy to talk shit about for the last couple years where Jill, mom, wife and Christian from St. Paul, Minnesota titles a post "Vegan Friendly, Gluten-Free Banana… Continue reading Things I Just Don’t Fucking Understand: People Who Hate Recipe Blogs

CampNaNo April 2020 Week 1

Week one is (mostly) done, and so I thought I may be too. Not because I'm sick of this story--on the contrary I'm super excited about it--but because I didn't record my words correctly on any day, and I'm behind! I actually spent a lot of time reorganizing and plotting the first couple days of… Continue reading CampNaNo April 2020 Week 1

April CampNaNo Kickoff

It's finally April, a month I've been looking forward to (and also dreading a little) all year. When I planned out my 2020 writing schedule, I used the National Novel Writing Months as a framework for my first drafts. April, July, and November are all for drafting, while the other months are for brainstorming, plotting,… Continue reading April CampNaNo Kickoff
