Prepping for NaNoWriMo

Life

I've been doing NaNoWriMo for quite a while now. I started when I was back in college as a sophomore and that first year was the only year I actually completed the challenge. A bunch of unfinished novels later, here I am, prepping for another year of literary struggle! I was debating between re-working/finishing an older NaNoWriMo novel that I recently fell back in love with, or writing something new…

Blogging

Since doing NaNoWriMo knocked me off the blog bandwagon...I mean, it's like I can't properly manage my time at all! Not to mention all the books I've been recently given (thank you Ellen, you doll!), lent (Sarah & Nick), and B&N ARC books that now have a waiting line since everyone I work with wants to read it! (I was number 2 in line, aw yeah) Regardless, it seems like…

I know last year was a major failure on my part for NaNoWriMo, but so has every year since I first won in 2010, which was also the year I started participating. I'll give you a little background on all the novels that I've previously tried to write (and the one I did complete). 2010 This was the first year that I ever tried to start/finish NaNo, it was my…

NANO Progress #2

Life

How I write: I normally write parts when they come to me, as in, I don't always write in chronological order when I write stories. If I have a great idea for the ending, then I'll stop whatever part I'm currently writing and start writing the ending out. I've done that with just about everything I've written. I just need to get my ideas out on paper once they come…

Life

This is my first NaNoWriMo update on the blog! Phew! One week down! Since I started writing on November 1st, a lot of things have changed with my story! NaNoWriMo is a lot of fun actually, I know it sounds like a lot to do in a month, but forcing creativity can actually be really exciting and beneficial. It can work as a building block in the future! Every week…

The Bookworm’s Writing Process

Life

I was tagged by Alaska Renee, who just recently underwent some blog changes! She has a lovely blog and is part of the Summer Blogger Challenge that I'm a part of! This was a writing process tag prompt, so I'm going to talk about my writing process!

Nanowrimo Month!

Life

November is another month that I adore, mainly because the scarf weather begins! Yes! But, there is another reason that I look forward to November every year and that's....Nanowrimo!  If you've never heard of Nanowrimo then you are missing out on something amazing. (and a little stressful) Nanowrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month, where you write a 30,000 word novel in 30 days! Whoa!!! Everyone already knows I'm an…
