Nontraditional NaNo and Me

It's National Novel Writing Month, and this will be the first time in a long time that I won't be participating in a normal way. I'm sort of sad about that, especially since I'm actually in the exact kind of mood that writing a first draft of something requires (the desire to just kinda go… Continue reading Nontraditional NaNo and Me

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

How Long Should My Chapters Be?

I made another AuthorTube video for this week, but I also thought I'd doctor up my script to make a post. If you'd rather watch this blog, scroll on down and go to YouTube, or you can also just keep reading if you find my voice as annoying as I do. So, a question that's… Continue reading How Long Should My Chapters Be?

Post NaNo Wrap Up And Planning For 2019

I've been a member of the NaNo website for almost a decade, I used the site to track for the past three years (though I competed more often than that), and finally, last night, I became a winner for the first time in the month of November. I… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – Winning!

NaNoWriMo 2018 – 37,500 Words (75% Complete!)

Yesterday was the 18th, 60% done with the month, and 75% done with NaNo! Well, 3/4 of the way to the 50k word goal, at least. I'm feeling pretty good, very pumped to continuously be ahead of the word count, and super proud for spewing out words every day, even if some days that count… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – 37,500 Words (75% Complete!)

Letting Your Writing Sit

I wanted to call this post "Take A Break From Your Writing" but sometimes people just read headers, and I'd be remiss, Dear Reader, if that's all someone took away from this post. Everyone gets overwhelmed and burnt out at some point, and taking a break isn't necessarily bad, but I don't think I'd really… Continue reading Letting Your Writing Sit
