2020 Goals: My Year of Content

For the past two years, I've been working from home, and by "working" I mean writing and not making a damn cent. That all changes this year. I have a solid plan to release at least three books (self-published on Amazon) and produce at least three more drafts. Ideally, both of those threes will be… Continue reading 2020 Goals: My Year of Content

Here are my top five tips to get some of that precious time back so you can complete your NaNo project this Thanksgiving.

A Tiny NaNo Update At 40k Words

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.

NaNoWriMo 2018 – 25,000 Words (The Halfway Mark!)

First 12,500 words. Last night I hit 25,000 words, orĀ 25,969 (nice) to be exact! I'm halfway there and though I'm a little bit behind my goal of hitting 50k by the 20th, I think I can still make it (especially if I keep on ignoring Vacancy). There have been a few weird days, but also… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – 25,000 Words (The Halfway Mark!)

Blogoween Day 13 – Spooky NaNo Prep

I don't think there's anything particularly spooky about National Novel Writing Month except maybe the bone-crushing fear of taking on such a terrifying task or the horror of putting yourself through a grueling 30 days of writing to reach 50k words. But unless you're writing horror, or a thriller, or darker paranormal stuff, or real-life… Continue reading Blogoween Day 13 – Spooky NaNo Prep
