Camp NaNoWriMo and regular old NaNoWriMo have different "rules." Rules, in these things, are arbitrary anyway, but Camp, specifically, is about setting your own goals and getting there however you'd like. I decided to utilize camp, this year, to finish the third and last book in my still unnamed trilogy. If you remember, last NaNo… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo – A Start and Cheating
Lots more than one line this week. I don't have siblings in my NaNo story, but there's a whole ridiculous brotherhood.
I'm, like, just hanging on, ya know? Mentally, I mean, about everything. It's been a rough week in a lot of ways, but surprisingly not in a writing capacity sorta way. In fact, two days ago I had a computer crash that lost a couple days of work (some of which I was able to… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2021 – On Par for Week 3
Mandatory link to the newsletter here! Check it out for some fun giveaways, some great deals on KU books, a couple featured reads, and some updates from me on Bad Blood, Vacancy/The Willful Inheritor, and Blightwood. And, since you're here, I figured I'd share an extra tidbit: when Blightwood comes out, I'm thinking of doing… Continue reading November 2021 Newsletter – Giveaways, Updates, Excerpts, Oh my!
I don't know that it's fair to call this a slump as I was impossibly busy last week, but my word count did drop dramatically. I am, however, still on target thanks to a banner week one! So, I missed the 13th, ruining my streak which is a huge personal bummer, but I was exhausted… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2021: The Second Week Slump
Not sure if "the depths of chaos" will be something to thank/swear to in the final version of my NaNoWriMo novel, but I like it well enough for now!
We're five days into National Novel Writing Month, and while I was unsure at first if I would even indulge this year, the craziness that has been my last few weeks has lent itself perfectly to taking up the challenge once again, so here we are! I'm working on a sword and sorcery romcom featuring… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2021 – First Friday Check In
I didn't have "telescope" in my NaNoWriMo project, so I just went with, like, a line that projects the story, if that makes sense?
Well, today was a huge success as far as NaNo goes. It was also a success in general--I actually got to write! I haven't been able to devote time to work for about a week, and forget about grabbing ten or fifteen minutes here and there: I'm bad at focusing in short spurts when the… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2021 – Day 1
Yeah, I gave in a couple days ago, and I'm just doing the dang thing. Things have been a wild mess the last week or so, and I haven't had time to write, so obviously the best choice was to add another project into the mix, right? Actually, setting up this project on the NaNo… Continue reading Okay, So, I Guess I Am Doing NaNo
