Camp NaNoWriMo/NaNoFinMo

My fellow writers, in case you weren’t aware, Camp NaNoWriMo begins next Thursday and the folks over at NaNoWriMo.org have declared April National Novel Finishing Month, or NaNoFinMo. Whether that means finishing a past NaNoWriMo project that didn’t reach the finish line of 50,000 words, or in my case, expanding the novel I won withContinue reading “Camp NaNoWriMo/NaNoFinMo”

What to expect from this blog going forward

Now that National Novel Writing Month is over, I figured I’d let you all know what you can expect from this blog in the near future, since last month I blogged almost exclusively about NaNoWriMo. But first let me just say welcome to all my new followers, and thank you for joining me on thisContinue reading “What to expect from this blog going forward”

NaNoWriMo 2020: A Retrospective

Well, I did it! I somehow won NaNoWriMo, despite all my procrastinations and mini-vacations and a few major distractions! Just barely, though… by the skin of my teeth. 10,008 words with 14 minutes to spare. I felt like my fingers were gonna fall off. This was because the night before, when I should’ve been writingContinue reading “NaNoWriMo 2020: A Retrospective”

NaNoWriMo – Day 24

On the 21st I really put in the hours so I could catch up, writing almost non-stop from the time I got up to the time I went to sleep. I participated in a few sprints as well, and by the end of the night I had written over 2,700 words! Nearly half of thatContinue reading “NaNoWriMo – Day 24”

NaNoWriMo: Day 18

Well, I wanted to blog something on the 15th because it’s the halfway mark. I thought about giving it the humorously nerdy title “Beware the Ides of NaNoWriMo!” but apparently the Romans considered the Ides of November to be the 13th, unlike March in which it was the 15th. Not that it matters now. IContinue reading “NaNoWriMo: Day 18”

NaNoWriMo: Falling Behind

Some days, writing doesn’t come easy. Well, that’s not really true, is it? After all, here I am writing this. So I guess it’s a certain type of writing that doesn’t come easy on some days. For instance, I’ve never been good with deadlines. Anything that has to be finished by a certain time orContinue reading “NaNoWriMo: Falling Behind”

NaNoWriMo: Day 10

Yesterday wasn’t such a good day in terms of National Novel Writing Month, or even just my writing in general. Earlier in the day I had to wait down by my driveway for my no-contact deliveries for over an hour, and then when they finally came I had to haul all those groceries up theContinue reading “NaNoWriMo: Day 10”
