Nanowrimo Prep (October Update)

This October has mostly been prepping for Nanowrimo, tidying up some old projects and writing my #fantasyqueensfall entry for the competition being run over IG. It’s been a busy month, and November looks like it’ll be even busier! What I’m writing for Nanowrimo Last year I did my first ever Nanowrimo, and it left me… Continue reading Nanowrimo Prep (October Update)

Finding the Time (September Update)

Finding the Time Time. That ever elusive concept that keeps slipping through my fingers. The times I don’t have enough time to sit down and write, but I have enough time to do everything else. The Chores. Work. Cooking food. Finding time to write is always difficult. Half of it is because I need an… Continue reading Finding the Time (September Update)

Opinion – The Gardener vs The Architect

There are many archetypes and personality types that any kind of person could try to shove themselves into in an attempt to categorise the human psyche. I remember at school those who were studying psychology coming out of their lesson and trying to shove labels onto various ticks, habits and phrases that people said as… Continue reading Opinion – The Gardener vs The Architect

More Learnings from my Travels (August Update)

August has always been an “end” month to me. I think my brain never quite fully shook the school year when I left it many moons ago. I lived for so long in a September – September existence that even now when I can finally run by the normal calendar year, August still feels like… Continue reading More Learnings from my Travels (August Update)

July Blog – Liminal Space

There is some part of me that does not quite believe it’s the end of July. It feels an almost surreal month, one which merges with June because it’s both a “J” month in my head (and June and July look so similar it’s easy to get them muddled – thanks dyslexia!) July is a… Continue reading July Blog – Liminal Space

Why I Write (May Update)

Why write at all? I suppose there are many things that can take up my time in the evening. TV. Reading a book. Playing computer games. There are loads of things I can do; and in the evening, I find I have 1 hour of time to do whatever I want with. It’s amazing, really,… Continue reading Why I Write (May Update)

January Update – 30,000

This month’s update comes from the bowls of late night writing, having just remembered it is, in fact, 31st January (somehow). And that another month has come and gone in the blink of an eye (I swear it was NYE yesterday…). This month has been a productive one. I’ve managed to post some more teacup… Continue reading January Update – 30,000

December Update – Looking backwards and forwards

It’s the end of another year. A good time to reflect on the year gone by, and my wishes for the coming 2019. Lookback at 2018 I’ve not been so great with my writing in the first part of 2018, due to various life stressors that gave me enough excuses to sit down and write.… Continue reading December Update – Looking backwards and forwards

November Update – 50,000 Words

I still can’t quite believe that I won at Nanowrimo. Sure, it was exactly 50,081 words, sure some of the scenes that I wrote are going to definitely get cut, and the whole chronology of the story is a giant puzzle that needs to be slotted together somehow. But I won. I went into Nanowrimo… Continue reading November Update – 50,000 Words
