Reasons Why I’m Quitting NaNoWriMo

So...I've been doing a lot of thinking this month. Both about the book I'm writing this year and my past experiences with NaNo, and I have come to the logical conclusion that NaNoWriMo isn't for me. Here are the four reasons why. 1. Inability To Process I am an introspective person. I think...a lot. It's … Continue reading Reasons Why I’m Quitting NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo Book Tag

In the spirit of NaNoWriMo (since it is the beginning of November), I thought I would do a book tag revolving around the theme of National Novel Writing Month. And I found one posted a couple years ago on Youtube by Kristina Horner. 1. How many times have you done NaNoWriMo? Technically, two. I'm not … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Book Tag

NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 4 Update

We are four days into NaNoWriMo. Gosh, this month I seem to be so undisciplined when it comes to writing. I'll write a lot one day, and just skip writing the next day. I'm also not calculating how many words I should be writing each day. Math and me just do not care for each … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 4 Update

NaNoWriMo, 2018: Day 1 (Thank you, readers!)

NaNoWriMo is starting! I'm super excited but mostly terrified. Thank you for everyone who voted yesterday in my poll. I was honestly surprised how many people voted for #2, Peppermint Poison with a Pinch of Paris (it finished with about 53% of the vote). It was definitely one I did not think many would choose. In … Continue reading NaNoWriMo, 2018: Day 1 (Thank you, readers!)

How Blogging Helped My Writing

It seems like an eternity ago that I actually talked about writing, as opposed to reading. Perhaps it’s because I haven’t had an idea for a compelling topic, or simply because the more I learn about writing the more I realize how little I actually know. However, in the nearly two years I have been … Continue reading How Blogging Helped My Writing

Camp NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 27 (I Completed the Challenge!)

I'm done! I've completed my word count. At the end, I really started struggling with my book. I'll probably go back and do some rewrites. But I'm done! I can breath a sigh of relief finally! Daily Summary Words written today: 1,646 Total words written: 51,292/50,000 (I did it!) Goal words needed: 43,551/50,000 Difference: 7,741 … Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 27 (I Completed the Challenge!)

Camp NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 26

I may or may not have gone to Barnes & Nobles today and bought way too many books...I will not confirm or deny. Basically, I was busy this morning and didn't get writing done until the afternoon. Again, I feel very irresponsible. I barely managed to get the minimum wordcount done, though I'm still writing … Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 26
