Crappy Writing: Time

  Let’s face it. My last blog post sucked, and also the Mondays I missed posting sucked too. So todays post is going to be on Crappy Writing! Lately I have felt like I am drowning in a sea of everything. I started college and am practically teaching myself French. I had forgotten how hard it was to memorize things and that didn’t make any of my other subjects easy ether. I have two papers due this week and two tests. Beside college, my little brother is turning two! Cutie! I’ve been trying to fight the whirlwind that wants to […]

Keep Calm and Write On: NaNoWriMo is Coming

Happy Labor Day! How is College for everyone who is going? I have found out that it is just a teeny more time consuming than I had thought it would be. Thus, how do I MAKE TIME TO PLOT OUT MY NOVEL BEFORE NOVEMBER? I haven’t looked at anything I wrote during Camp NaNo; much less started plotting. Today’s post is not about making time. Today’s post is about getting ready for November. What exactly do I need to do to be ready for NaNoWriMo? Some people are just beginning. They write out whatever has been building in their minds, they […]

Camp NaNo 2016: To the End!

The last week, Is it really here? Is the novel really that much more real? Can I really see the end to the editing? It has been an amazing month! This being my last blog post concerning Camp NaNo, even though we technically have another Monday in this month, I have a few more words of advice. The first piece of advice being: Don’t Slack Off! This isn’t the week to think, ‘Oh! I’m close to being done. I’ll write this later.’ Nope! Don’t do it. WRITE IT NOW! Even if you are behind, don’t give up yet. A lot […]

Camp NaNoWriMo 2016: The Story Monster

So, week three of Camp NaNoWriMo! I hope all your word counts are soaring and your creative juice rivers flooding. I think, in a way, the third week of Camp Nano is the hardest. Why? Because, it is almost over.  If you are writing a novel then the hardest part of your book is upon you. The most intense scene and decisions to stay with your plot, or break loose, are knocking at your door. If you are editing, the words are starting to run together, you’re going cross-eyed and you question the very existence of the words you put down […]

Writing Hurtles and Camp NaNoWriMo

I find that if I ignore the stories in my head, after a while the ideas quit coming. I might have a rare revelation and then quickly forget it, but that’s all. The last book I wrote was in December. Since then, I pushed away any new ideas so that I could edit in peace. After I edited, the ideas just were not there. I wasn’t writing much in the way of stories. If this Camp NaNo does nothing but get those creative ideas flowing again, it will be a success. I have written a couple paragraphs on several different […]

Camp NaNoWriMo

Happy Fourth of July everyone! I want to thank all the brave men and women who make America’s independence possible. A  Special thank you to all the brave men and women’s families who have to do without their loved ones while they protect us. Have you ever wanted to write an epic novel, a book, a short story, a poem? I have. In fact, I did! I wrote one that is 50,000 words long. That’s a lot of words! I was up late, up early, and because I was up late I got up middlish the next day. Ha! Ha! How did […]
