NaNoWriMo 2018 #3

I tried writing as much as I could during week one to rack up some extra padding before heading into the second week because I knew, 
nobody can escape the week two blues. Continue reading “NaNoWriMo 2018 #3”


NaNoWriMo 2018 #2

Screenshot (11)

Week one of NaNoWriMo 2018 is over. Just like that. Before the start of day one, I got really nervous and excited. The true butterfly feeling. I haven’t been this excited to participate in NaNo for a few years. Though my first couple of paragraphs were quite laughable and needed to be done over completely, I am on track to reaching 50K by the end of these 30 days. Continue reading “NaNoWriMo 2018 #2”

National Novel Writing Month begins today and whether you’re starting at midnight or two in the afternoon, the first few days of NaNo are critical.

Prep-Tober 2018 #3

October is half over. There are only a couple of weeks and some-odd-days left to gather all things necessary both for NaNoWriMo and story aspects. Unfortunately, I have hit the dreaded midway blues.  Continue reading “Prep-Tober 2018 #3”

Prep-Tober 2018 #2

Writing, books, coffee, and chocolate!

The first week of Prep-tober is over. Though I have never attempted a full outline before I am more than happy with my progress so far. I have a feeling NaNoWriMo 2018 is going to be the easiest year yet. Continue reading “Prep-Tober 2018 #2”
