My daily average over 17 days has been 1122 words, which I am really happy with. The total is currently 19,083 words. I've already written more words that I wrote in October (16,738). I should be set to pass my 2017 NaNo record!
Hi everyone 🌟 Sorry for the silence recently. Since my last posts, where I talked about my travels in Europe, I have returned to Melbourne and was subsequently hit with reality. Life Update A few months ago I graduated from university and have been applying for jobs in the last couple weeks. I knew it … Continue reading Life and Writing Updates
First of all I'll start by saying that I'm not sure if anyone has used that title before, but I thought of it and it made me laugh. If you don't know, NaNoWriMo is currently underway, and the goal for writers is to conjure up 50,000 words in just 30 days. That's an average of 1,667 words per day.
I have always struggled with plotting my stories. I think most writers out there have loads of unfinished stories, but these stories remain unfinished for different reasons. I often abandon my stories because I struggle with making the plot seem realistic and logical. Lately, with my stories, I have noticed that I try to put … Continue reading Writing Diary #1 – Plotting is hard
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.
Having a bullet journal can keep track of so many aspects of your life. I thought I would only be using it for the basics, but I have since started tracking my habits, expenses, writing, reading, and studying. Because I like how my March spread turned out, I thought I would make a blog post about it, as it does include my blog's two main interests: reading and writing.
I hope that everyone had a great New Year's! My birthday was on New Year's Day, which is good because you start your birthday to fireworks, but bad because you have to remind everyone that it's your birthday.
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.
