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 ✨ NaNoWriMo is coming up! It's that time of the year where writers stress about not hitting the 1,666 word-count in the day to be able to reach the 50,000-word monthly goal. It's a difficult challenge and I have not yet been able to accomplish it. The most I've been able to write … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2019 Plan
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
In April, I was stressed a lot about uni and because of that, I started to blog significantly less than I used to. This time last year I was blogging around three times per week and now it is once per week. At the very end of the month I also, strangely, fell quite ill. I don't get sick very often, so it was very weird. I had the flu (I think?) and couldn't really get out of bed for a few days. Aside from that, I had an all right month.
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.
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!
