NaNoWriMo Winner! But pre Post-November slump.

As ever, once the NaNoWriMo month is over, you notice a huge chunk of your day is missing – less stressful. Despite having a crazy challenge lifted off your shoulders and leaving you with time to focus on more important things (like university assessments O_O), there’s something missing. That nagging sensation in the back of… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Winner! But pre Post-November slump.

Day 16 of NaNoWriMo… What? Already?

So much to do. Just, so much. I’m struggling to keep up now. I’m only managing to write 1,000 words below the target each day before I fall asleep, willingly or not. But, I shall press on. I am determined to complete NaNo. My war paint is now on. My writing plan has degraded a… Continue reading Day 16 of NaNoWriMo… What? Already?

Day 2 of NaNoWriMo and everyone is either gay, masturbating or starving to death

The title says it all. No you did not misread it. No I did not typo ‘procrastinating’ (someone asked me if I had). It’s been an interesting (I’m lying) day. Oooh, ‘Rawhide’ by the Blue Brothers just started playing on my iTunes. You needed to know this. After waking up and panicking that I had… Continue reading Day 2 of NaNoWriMo and everyone is either gay, masturbating or starving to death

Day 1 of NaNoWriMo…and someone has already been stabbed with a pitch-fork.

Wooo! So, our Professors are encouraging my class of budding writers to start a blog. I have achieved this. Level up+1 for me!  They have also suggested that we blog about how we handle each day of NaNoWriMo. I probably won’t do every day. Jus’ sayin’. What is NaNoWriMo? It stands for: Nation Novel Writing… Continue reading Day 1 of NaNoWriMo…and someone has already been stabbed with a pitch-fork.
