Writing, for me, comes and goes in waves, but recently I have been getting back into my personal writing. I say 'personal' because I have to do a bit of writing for school and I feel like it doesn't really count. I have already worked on two different stories this year - unfinished, obviously - and I have liked setting aside about an hour each night to spend writing. Granted, I do not do this every night, but it has been therapeutic and good to put my writing into practice.
Week 3 of NaNoWriMo is over! I don't know if November has been going slowly or quickly. On the one hand, it feels like it was just the first of November and I was stressing about my future (seeing as the day before I had finished uni). On the other hand, I've been writing like … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Progress Week 3
NaNoWriMo week 2 is over and we are now halfway into the month! My motivation to write dropped significantly, but seeing as I set myself a goal every day to write, I tried to actually complete it. You guys are going to be very disappointed in me, so I'm just going to warn you right … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Week 2 Progress – Not Going So Great!
I'm participating in NaNoWriMo this month and have realised that I get distracted VERY EASILY! I'm a mixture of a procrastinator and a lazy person, and this does not result in a very high word count. It results in a jumbled mess of words.
NaNoWriMo week 1 is over! I hope all the writers reading this were able to write what they intended on. In this post I'm going to share with you my stats so far for NaNoWriMo and some things I learned after writing non-stop for one week.
In November it is NaNoWriMo! I am going to be participating for the first time and I'm really excited. I'm almost finished university (and graduate in December!) and have most of November to WRITE! Well, I start a new job in the last week, but I still have heaps of time. Luckily my last assignment for uni is due on 31 October, so this is perfect timing!
My last writing update was at the end of June, and since then I have been writing a lot less! But that's okay! I have been more focused on writing short stories, because I wanted to enter some competitions.
It was recently the Melbourne Writers Festival between 25 August and 3 September, and I decided to go along! This was my first time going and I choice three of the events. Even if you didn't go or live in Melbourne, there were many things I learned that could be interesting to you.
Writing book reviews is something that takes effort, but it can also be very rewarding! I was thinking about why I wrote a book review every week and whether I should keep going or limit it, so I devised a list of pros and cons to way up on just how helpful it can be.
Last week I half-arsed participated in the BookTube-A-Thon! I know I just did a reading challenge, but I saw that so many people were participating, and it made me want to join in.
