I Can’t Believe It’s NaNo-Freakin-WriMo Again

Excuse me while I just sit here in stunned fear. That's right, NaNoWriMo begins in six hours and I'm cacking myself. Why, Willow? You've done this five years in a row now? Yes, little minion voice, I have. But previously I didn't have to grow up and do Shitty Adult Things, all whilst drowning under… Continue reading I Can’t Believe It’s NaNo-Freakin-WriMo Again

Covers for my novels – let’s take a break

Oh, the editing process. How I love and loath it all at once. It's like trying to glue worms together into a pretty neat line but their slippery skin keeps shrugging off all the glue. On good days, it's like shooting rainbows from a cat-cannon. It's fun, except for the part where it drives you… Continue reading Covers for my novels – let’s take a break

A quick guide to the basics of writing erotica

"We are dealing with sex. We're going to be embarrassed and everything will have a double meaning.

Well, I've personally found this week to be an up hill (mountain) struggle. I had such a mental break down at one point that I was actually convinced… Continue reading #NaNoWriMo Day 17, Dwarves deserve love too, y’know, and the stabbing finally happened

#NaNoWriMo day 9 and we’re still hunting a fucking snake

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Somewhere, I know there is a light. A light I might not be able to see at the moment, but a blazing olympic torch nonetheless. My 'professor' has decided to bring forward a few script deadlines to give us a 'taste of the working world'.… Continue reading #NaNoWriMo day 9 and we’re still hunting a fucking snake

#NaNoWriMo Day 7: lala mentality reached, Nouns everywhere, and no one’s been stabbed yet

Phew! What an intensive weekend. 10k Sunday, I nearly choked a lung trying to reach the word count on Saturday, never mind the overall weekend target. But I made it. Elijah Gill did question my mental health at one point and made me go to bed at a sensible hour, but other than that I'm… Continue reading #NaNoWriMo Day 7: lala mentality reached, Nouns everywhere, and no one’s been stabbed yet

Day 16 of NaNoWriMo… What? Already?

So much to do. Just, so much. Iā€™m struggling to keep up now. Iā€™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?
