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.

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

Camp NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 21

I'm totally taking tomorrow off again. Today was the first incredibly difficult day to write. I'm double-thinking everything, wondering if I should have done certain scenes differently...but there is no turning back now and if I do there is no way I'll finish my word count. The first main turning point in my book has … Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 21
