NaNoWriMo | Halfway There!

This month has been a challenge, to say the least. With my novel slowly taking shape and new plot twists are in abundance, I’ve realised how very unprepared I was for this month. The plan I had in place for what I would write was probably a waste of time as all the planning, plots and research I did have been abandoned as my characters have totally changed the route of the story. Where my main character was a good girl, she no longer is. She isn’t the little good girl I… Read More

NaNoWriMo | November is the Start of Something Big!

November is National Novel Writing Month. I decided to write a book a little over three months ago and have thrown myself into the world of writers and authors full on and at full speed.

NaNoWriMo Has Taken Over!

  Yes! It is the month of preparation for this years  NaNoWriMo! I’ve been absent from the blogging world for more than a week and I’m missing the daily updates and interaction. I guess it is my own fault as I’ve been preoccupied with preparation but I shouldn’t have neglected my followers! So apologies to you all! So my news is that I am most definitely joining in with the thousands of other people who are going to write a 50’000 word novel in the month of November. I have no idea… Read More

NaNoWriMo 2016

  I’ve not been writing for very long, one month in fact and I’ve come across a post about the ‘National Novel Writing Month‘. This is something I have never heard of but having read about it I’m really excited and have decided to participate. After finding out what it entails I’ve gone through a series of emotions from wonder to fear to nervousness and of course excitement. Quite frankly it is scary as you have to its minimum of 50,000 words for your book to be classed as a novel. If you only… Read More
