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

Writing WIP Wednesday ~ July Camp NaNo Progress

When I last did a Writing WIP Wednesday on the blog, I told you that I was going to be participating in July's Camp NaNoWriMo. My goal for this month is to spend 30 hours over the course of the month working on my current plot bunny, so that I can make it into a… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ July Camp NaNo Progress

Writing WIP Wednesday ~ July Camp NaNo Intro

I've done NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNo before, with mixed success. But one thing that it's really awesome at is giving me something concrete to track. I'll need to keep setting myself my own personal writing metrics to track, but since July is a Camp NaNo session I'm going to jump-start my writing tracking by using… Continue reading Writing WIP Wednesday ~ July Camp NaNo Intro
