Writing WIP Wednesday ~ January 2020 recap

I want to focus more on my writing in 2020, and part of that means being more accountable for what I get accomplished. Sadly, in January, that wasn't much. Basic stats for January 2020: Words written: none on story, all on random planning Scenes finished: 0 Time spent editing: 0 hours Time spent planning /… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ January 2020 recap

Wrap-up: 19 for ’19 goals

Believe it or not, it's a new year. I don't know where 2019 went — but it's probably the same place 2018 went a year ago. Not that it feels like it's been a full year since I set myself these 19 challenges for 2019. One quick note: since the POPSUGAR 2019 Reading Challenge wasn't… Continue reading Wrap-up: 19 for ’19 goals

Writing WIP Wednesday ~ NaNo 2019 Wrap-Up

Now that it's December and I've had a chance to take a deep breath... how did NaNo go? Well, I won NaNoWriMo 2019 with a total word count of 50,060 words! This is not my first NaNo win, but it's my first win in a few years. For the past couple years, I've been trying… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ NaNo 2019 Wrap-Up

Writing WIP Wednesday ~ NaNo Update

When I started NaNo 2019, I decided I wanted to write 2,000 words per day instead of the standard 1,667. That way I could be done with plenty of time to clean the house for Thanksgiving, and I'd give myself a buffer for finishing on time. Besides, if I was already writing 1,600 words per… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ NaNo Update

Writing WIP Wednesday ~ What is the Snowflake Method?

So a while back I mentioned wanting to use the Snowflake Method to get a new perspective on my current story. But, I don't think I've talked about the Snowflake Method before, so today I'm going to take a look at what it is any why you might find it useful. The Snowflake Method by… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ What is the Snowflake Method?

Writing WIP Wednesday ~ How to NaNo

November is just around the corner, and for me November means NaNoWriMo! I've seen several of my blog friends mention NaNo this year as well, so I though I'd offer some tips I have for NaNo Newbies. (I may not be a professional writer, but I have been participating in NaNoWriMo for somewhere around 10… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ How to NaNo

Writing WIP Wednesday ~ getting back on track

I've been slacking lately. Multiple co-workers have been sick (and still coming in to the office, grrr) and I think I've been fighting off their cold. So when I get home I have had little to no energy for anything else. I'm trying not to beat myself up for resting instead of writing, but I… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ getting back on track

Writing WIP Wednesday ~ All About Scrivener

I mentioned a while back that I was using Scrivener (a writing software by Literature and Latte) while working on my new story. And I love it! But I know that some of you may look at something I describe as writing software and wonder why a regular word processor isn't enough. So I thought… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ All About Scrivener

Writing WIP Wednesday ~ Lessons from Camp

We're now into August! And that means the July 2019 session of Camp NaNoWriMo is officially over. While I could go into my stats about how I did, or talk about what I worked on, I'm not going to do either of those. I don't have anything yet that I would even consider sharing as… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ Lessons from Camp
