We’re half way through the month, how crazy is that? The days have just flown by, but now seems like an appropriate time to check in with my camp nanowrimo goals and plans to see whether I have actually stuck to them. Hopefully by sharing this information with you all I will feel more motivated to keep going. I’d love to hear how camp nanowrimo is going for all of you so let me know down in the comments.
I made a bunch of goals at the beginning of the year and now that it is half way through the year (ahh that doesn’t feel real) I am going to go over them and see how I am going. Some are going so well… some are going not so well.
Well it’s been nearly a whole week since I last posted and considering I have read nothing but school books recently and am really busy I don’t see that changing in the next week or so. I did however want to do a quick post to let you all know that I am participating in camp nanowrimo in July.
Beautiful people is a writing meme cohosted by Cait from Paper Fury and Sky from Further Up and Further In that is designed to help you get to know your characters better and share about your writing projects. I thought it would be fun to participate in this considering I am trying to share more about my writing with you guys and my main character’s parents play a large role in the story. This meme is for the whole of May so there’s still heaps of time for you to join in if you’re interested.
Hahaha let’s just say this will be a very short post. I haven’t really done much writing. I do reflect on what I plan to do next at the end though so that might be helpful for you.
Week two of nanowrimo, here’s how I did. I also have a few more tips for you at the end.
This is a bit of an odd post. I have decided to introduce a co-blogger due to the large amount of homework I have. This way I can keep posting at the same regularity. So without any further ado… here she is:
Hi I’m Ella and I am going to be a co author to this account.
just a note: I didn’t do much this month, school has been super busy for me so that has had to be my focus. Despite reading ten books in January I only read half that this month – although this still means I am on track for my goodreads reading goal of one hundred books this year.
Writing is hard man… Imagine you come up with this idea and it’s precious and small and you just want to take care of it. You want to feed it until it becomes a fully fleshed out plot line and spend hours writing the idea. But the world is a harsh place, you might find out your idea is already very much so a thing, you might lose your excitement after just a few days or you might just not be able to find the time to write around all the other possibilities of what you can spend your time on. Even if you actually get to sit down and work on your book there are so many other challenges that I need to rant about.
With the coming of new year everyone is making new years resolutions. In this context a resolution is a promise that you make to yourself, however we all know that in most cases this promise will be broken within a few short weeks. Here is what I do to make sure I actually stick to my resolutions.
