Finishing NaNoWriMo – and now what?

    As much I’ve enjoyed Nanowrimo, I especially enjoyed going over the 50,000 word mark and finishing yesterday evening. I’m off work this week and all the way through I’d focused on finishing the writing just before so that I could properly enjoy my time off.   So I could read all the books [...]

Still Writing…

…and not crafting. My word count is currently just over 34k and I’m on leave next week. My plan was to get to the 50k late this week, certainly by the weekend so that I can do relatively little during my week off.  I’m honestly not sure if I’m going to get through the just [...]

New Blog – Writing, writing, writing

Yep, I’m still writing, so much so that I even took a day off work to attempt to write 10,000 words in one day. I completed the challenge but it was incredibly hard and took me the best part of twelve hours. It also left me with RSI in my right wrist.  I had to [...]

A Write Maniac…

This is one of those days when I’m so incredibly relieved that I wrote the majority of this blog yesterday.  I’m currently in a nanowrimo induced walking coma.  You see, I was away this weekend visiting the lovely Jeni of Fyberspates and having a fantastic catch-up with her. I did manage to write 2000 words [...]

NaNoWriMo

The word count widgets are now ready so you can see how I’ve been doing. Most days it’s just been get home, make tea and then head down writing for two hours. Some days are easier than others but I’m over the halfway point now. Just have to keep going! The word count widgets are [...]

Post Card from the Edge…

This is where I am at the moment, in the midst of the madness that is National Novel Writing Month. The word widgets aren’t ready yet so I can’t put up a count of my words just yet but yesterday I got up to the 11k word mark. Today the words just aren’t coming so [...]

Elizabeth Gilbert on Creativity…

I saw the film that was based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s book “Eat, Pray, Love” last week and I didn’t like it at all. I had approached it as mindless fluff which helped while viewing it but after seeing it I immediately thought of Mark Kermode’s short review – “Eat, Pray, Love. Vomit“. But of course [...]

I Caved…

Yep, after the long post and list of reasons NOT to do NaNoWriMo this year, I completely caved and began it yesterday evening. I think it was just that the excitement of those doing it was contagious and the fact that I’d never finished any fiction writing really bothered me. The more I thought about [...]
