On my blog I have been pretty open about my journey to publishing my book. So I thought I would update you all on how it's going and share more about my writing routine. Agent rejection Out of the four agent queries I have sent, I have unfortunately received one rejection. I started my journey … Continue reading Agent Rejection + Writing Routine

My Current WIP
For the past month I have been writing my current WIP. I started it in February, left it for a few months, and now I'm working on it again! It's at about 35,000 words. It's been so much easier to write than my last WIP, which is finished and I'm trying to get published (though … Continue reading My Current WIP
Beta Readers & Querying
Hello again everyone! Since my last post, I have practically finished editing and polishing my manuscript. I had been editing since December last year, so I think I've spent enough time on it. I know I'm ready to move on! Anyway, I forgot to post this a month ago when I was looking for beta … Continue reading Beta Readers & Querying
Writing Diary #1 – Plotting is hard
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 Update and Camp NaNoWriMo
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.
NaNoWriMo Progress Week 3
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 Progress – Not Going So Great!
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!
Distractions When Writing
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
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.
(Almost) Time for NaNoWriMo!
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!
