30 Days of Yoga

Dedicate

A subtitle for today's blog could be "Planning for Brainstorm February," but I gotta stay on this month's brand, and dedicate actually works out. I dedicated today's practice, as Adriene asked us to, to "my work." It was meant to be a person or a thing that wasn't ourselves to prove how self love and… Continue reading Dedicate

Power

Today, I have the power to stay on task. I mean, I had the power to stay in those standing splits the whole time and do shiva squats, so I could probably conquer the galaxy if I put my mind and brawn to it today. But we'll save becoming Supreme Leader of the Universe for… Continue reading Power

Post NaNo Wrap Up And Planning For 2019

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

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

The Tools I Used To Win Camp NaNo

During Camp NaNo, I used a number of tools while I wrote. These aren't necessarily the great works of art that inspire you to go forth and create your own prose, they're more of the pen and paper variety, but you're not writing anything without the utensils, okay? Ambiance I'm a pretty big fan of… Continue reading The Tools I Used To Win Camp NaNo

CampNaNoWriMo: 50k Words And Winning

For the first time ever, I've won National Novel Writing Month. Yes, it's July, it's really just camp, and yes, technically the only thing I beat out was myself and the only thing I got out of this is a 90+ page document that I'm both exhausted and enthralled by, but wouldn't really appeal to… Continue reading CampNaNoWriMo: 50k Words And Winning

Camp NaNoWriMo: 40K Words And The Finish Line Is In Sight

10K Post 20K Post 30K Post As excited as I am about hitting this mark and having less than 10,000 words left to write to meet my NaNo goal, it's become abundantly clear to me that this book will be well over 50k words. That's pretty typical for fantasy quests, and I'm not surprised (in… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo: 40K Words And The Finish Line Is In Sight

Camp NaNoWriMo: Over The Hump And 30k Words

We've sailed past the halfway point of camp and I'm excited to report I hit 30k words yesterday. THIRTY THOUSAND. This is the farthest I've ever gotten during NaNo. This is monumental for me! Check out my eval of 10k and 20k if you're interested in how I got here. I got to 30k faster… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo: Over The Hump And 30k Words

Camp NaNoWriMo Redux

I've been going back and forth on whether I should blog about this or not and came to the conclusion that...it really doesn't matter, so I may as well. I'll be taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo again in July (aka to-freaking-morrow). I tried camp out in April and failed miserably, so miserably that I didn't… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo Redux

Plotting v Pantsing

I've got a project that I'll be working on in July (maybe for NaNo???), and for the first time possibly ever I'm sitting down and really, truly, honest-to-goodness-ly plotting my ass off. Now, Dear Reader, usually I'm the kind of writer who flies by the seat of her pants. A pantser, if you will. I… Continue reading Plotting v Pantsing
