What is it about the weekend? You would think the weekend would be a great time to get all caught up and maybe even a little ahead on your writing… Right? Wrong! I thought so too. In fact, I had so much success in the first weekend of November that I was certain these last … More NaNoWriMo – playing catch up again.
In case you haven’t noticed, my blog posts this month have been all over the place. What’s that? You didn’t notice? Oh well… they have been. I’m not someone who is used to writing a blog post every single day and get my word count for NaNoWriMo and do everything else I have to do … More Go with the flow…
YES I CAN! Well, two days ago I was feeling very despondent. I lost so much momentum over the weekend and my word count was nowhere near where I wanted it. I thought writing on a long holiday weekend where I had plenty of time would be easy… right? Ya think? NOT! Basically I feel … More Back in the saddle again!
Yes, I’m late but I finally got the thing up. OK… It was an honest mistake, I promise. I’m not going to go on too much but I do want to talk about something I tweeted about recently. A friend of mine has discovered something about her #NaNoWriMo story and I congratulate her because it’s … More Yes I know it’s late. But it’s here and that’s what counts.
I got an e-mail today from NaNoWriMo about the second week being so hard on us WriMos. Apparently the first week is flush with success and in the second week, we tend to slow down and start struggling. A friend of mine is also participating in NaNoWriMo for the first time this year and we … More ME vs HER: The Week 2 Blues!
I am taking a page out of a friend’s book. She wrote a post a day or so ago about how discouraged she had become over her word count in NaNoWriMo. LINK I have also found myself becoming discouraged about my word count and I realized something this morning (after she pointed it out to … More Happy Sunday!
Have you ever worked up to a midnight deadline? The scramble before midnight is a sight to behold. I found this silly picture of owls some time ago and decided it needed to be NaNoed. I think it’s a pretty accurate depiction but what do you think? At any rate, on to the midnight madness. … More Midnight Madness… NaNoNuts!
Something I have learned the hard way about #NaNoWriMo… A good friend of mine, who is also doing NaNoWriMo, has been talking a lot about a guy she follows who already has over 20,000 words. As you can imagine, she’s quite intimidated by this. And I feel more than a little bit responsible for her … More It’s just not that hard for you…
Yesterday I received an email from GoodReads about voting in their GoodReads Choice awards. So I went to check out the nominees. (You can too. Just click the image above) Frightening to think these are our options… Fortunately, they also offer the option of writing in a vote. I voted for exactly 1 of their … More Scary what qualifies as “literature” these days…
NaNoWriMo started Friday, which means we were immediately launched into a weekend. I’m sure I’m not the only one who had a great weekend of word counts. However, Monday dawned bright and much too early with me dreaming crazy things during the night that left me feeling so worn out, it was more like I … More Word counts, Bad Dreams, Sleepless Nights and Playing catch up.
