Month: November 2017
NaNoWriMo 2017 Diary | Week 5
I didn’t get a chance to post my Project 365 photos last weekend, for a number of reasons. (And I’m probably going to be a day or two late on this month’s sketchbook post.) But that’s ok: I’m still staying on top of the project in general, and this particular group of photos feels like…
NaNoWriMo 2017 Diary | Week 4
At the moment this post goes live, I am almost exactly one day behind schedule on my NaNoWriMo draft. I’m closing in on the midpoint of the story itself – it’s running a little long, but that’s ok. It’s a first draft, and they’re always a little unpredictable, no matter how much I plan.
Snapshot #90 | 10 Things for 19 November 2017
I find it a little hard to believe, but the last two weeks haven’t been entirely devoted to NaNoWriMo. Only mostly. I’ve been: feeling | writing | realizing | solving | starting | finalizing | thinking | wishing | digging | drinking
NaNoWriMo 2017 Diary | Week 3
According to the official NaNoWriMo chart, I’m about two and a half days behind schedule. This is after taking four days off last weekend. That’s not great. I’m not thrilled about it. But I’m not in panic mode, either. I can still make it through the month, and hit 50K – I could take weekends…
I’m getting back into my groove with this project, just in time for the short, grey, dreary days of November. Awesome.
NaNoWriMo 2017 Diary | Week 2
This time last week, I thought I was starting to find the rhythm of the story. I was wrong. The first few days of this week were really difficult. I barely got anything written on the weekend, and it took until yesterday to actually get myself back up to par. I still felt good about…
National Novel Writing Month is an intense experience, creatively. And I love it for that. I love that it forces me to sit down and write – which is something I want to be doing anyway, but never seem to make the time for. The downside? It’s an intense experience, creatively. Especially at the beginning,…
Snapshot #89 | 10 Things for 5 November 2017… or, rather, 7 November 2017
I usually do these updates every two weeks. Or so. Emphasis on or so. Anyway. I’ve been: digging | getting | struggling | wondering | hoping | thinking | starting | knowing | feeling
NaNoWriMo 2017 Diary | Week 1
Three days into NaNoWriMo, and I have a title! I mean, I’ve also got a little more than 5000 words, but I’m really most excited about the title. And the fact that a few of my characters actually have last names now. That’s nice, too.
