NaNoWriOhNo and writing rest days

NaNoWriOhNo and writing rest days

For the second year in a row, I am totally sucking at NaNoWriMo! It’s pretty frustrating, to be honest, as I want to write this story–or at least I thought I did. I’ve been wondering, lately, about what kind of stories I really want to tell. In truth, 2018 has been kind of sucky (well,¬†yes) but creatively-speaking, as well. Personally, I’ve moved countries (for hopefully the last time for a while!) and landed in the beautiful Oxford, but setting myself…

Is it still November? NaNoWriMo = NaNoNoNo

I have a confession to make: I completely lost track of my NaNoWriMo goals due to, well, I’m going to say ‘my life’. But! I have been working on some other things, like revisions and playing about with some new stories, which I’m really enjoying.

NaNoWriMo 2016: throwing in the towel

NaNoWriMo 2016: throwing in the towel

The time has come to admit defeat. And I was so confident at the beginning of the month! I’m disappointed, to be honest, but sometimes that’s how things go. I managed four chapters of a new story, which is enough of a base for me to continue – and there’s time yet! Ten days left in November. If I can write another 10k, I’ll be pleased. November 2016 has been a bit of a chore. December soon. It’s a strange…
