NaNoWriMo Day 8: I’m a writing machine!

I have written like crazy today, so this post will be brief. In between editing my book, “Love Me, Crazy,” and writing my NaNo novel, I am wiped out! That’s all stuffed in my “spare” time too. I am so tired I think my arms have gone numb and...

NaNoWriMo Day 7: Ada is so much cooler than me.

I feel a bit depressed that my main character is fun, quirky, daring and oozing with confidence. Well…on the outside. On the inside she’s forgetful, dismissive and speaks to her dog whom she called “Potato.” (Who calls their dog POTATO!??) Ada is making decisions now. She’s making them faster...

What To Do: When A Friend Loses A Loved One. (Pt. 1)

On October 31 2017, my life changed completely. I changed. The only way I could find to express my complex feelings and ever-evolving emotions, was by writing my thoughts down on this blog. This blog, that got me into trouble more times than a few. The blog that was...

NaNoWriMo Day 3: Disaster Strikes Again!

  It’s not going well. Following my disastrous first two days of NaNo I have continued the trend by learning another lesson. This one you’ll laugh at, probably. Lesson 2: Save your work. Sounds simple right? You’d think that any self-respected writer would know to SAVE their work before...

NaNoWriMo Day 1 and 2

Ok. So I have already learned a valuable lesson during this year’s National November Writing Month: Choose your writing software…and stick to it. My eight year old is rather obsessed keen on Roblox. He has commandeered my laptop to play Pet Simulator, and in a bid to keep him...
