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
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
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
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
I lost NaNoWriMo. I am a failure. A disgrace. A loser. And that's okay. At 46,663 words in 30 days, I have officially failed 2019's National Novel Writing Month, but I'm not upset at that. In fact, I'm damn proud of myself for both pumping out that many words (though that pride is actually a… Continue reading December Is For Losers
Here are my top five tips to get some of that precious time back so you can complete your NaNo project this Thanksgiving.
It's almost the end of 2019 which has personally been both an amazing and terrible year. It's going to end in a way I could have never expected, but not without National Novel Writing Month happening all around me, so I've decided for better or worse to take it on yet again. Someday I need… Continue reading A NaNoWriMo Update (Without An Original Post)
Well, so much for Blogmas! Actually, I didn't plan on doing Blogmas, so I'm not behind or anything, but I would like to post regularly on here again. I need to find a way to do so that isn't as severe as every day, but not as wanting as every week. I have been writing,… Continue reading Post NaNo Wrap Up And Planning For 2019
Well, shit, you guys, it finally happened. 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!
This is the letter you get at 40,000 words. It's incredibly encouraging, for me at least. What's especially funny though: I dyed my hair purple today for the first time in like four-ish months and the next scene I'm about the embark on literally is an awkward dinner. The universe has opened up and screamed,… Continue reading A Tiny NaNo Update At 40k Words
