Just another author’s whimsical thoughts.
So, for a lot of writers out there, November can be a pretty big month, and that’s because of this NaNoWriMo thing. For those of you who might not know, this is an event that takes place every year where authors try to write 50,000 words in one month. This can be in the formContinue reading “NaNoWriMo 2021”
As the pandemic continuously stretches on, I think it’s fair to say we’ve all found joys wherever we can. For example, I got to spend my last year at university studying from home, which brought me inundated happiness because I’m an incredibly independent learner who likes making my own schedule. My mother has been workingContinue reading “The Joys of Online Book Tours”
I’ve wanted to be an author for more years than I can count; it was my first dream career when I was in primary school, and then I went down a few different aspirations before I came back to realising being an author is the career for me. In fact, I was preparing to beContinue reading “Finding Time to Write”
So, we have some exciting news! A couple of weeks ago, I finished the first draft for this project. That’s an enormous milestone, and whenever you get to this stage, it is so important to congratulate yourself because the work has been put in and you’ve got a draft that is recognisable for all thatContinue reading “Project #1 – First Draft!”
I mentioned this briefly in another post, and I thought it warranted one of its own because, if I’m to share my opinions and tell you all who I am as a writer, the kind of reader I am is important too. I’ve said it before, and I’ll definitely say it plenty of times inContinue reading “I’m A Fussy Reader”
I once spent an undisclosed amount of money to receive around fifty notebooks because one of my favourite stationary stores was having a New Year’s sale. Not only did I not need another fifty notebooks, I already had probably about that same amount at home. Some unused, some fully used, some half-used. Despite this, everyContinue reading “I Can’t Get Enough Notebooks”
As you can probably tell from the title of this post, the majority of what’s been going on between the last update and this one has revolved around research and planning. At this very moment, I’ve been dedicating my weekdays to Project #1 and my weekends to Project #2. It’s a great balance because IContinue reading “Project #2 – Research, Planning, Research Again”
Another update, so soon? You’re right, it’s only been a couple of weeks, and the last post was an update on this very project, but there’s been another major change, even bigger than the last. In the previous post, I wrote about a character I was struggling with, so I revised her completely. She wasContinue reading “Project #1 – Character Deletion”
It’s been a few weeks, so I want to give a little update on what’s been going on with Project #1. Firstly, it was a very good thing I didn’t share too many details in the first post because, well, there has been a major change. I know I’ve said I enjoy seeing how thingsContinue reading “Project #1 – Character Revisions”
This is a question I’ve been asking myself a lot recently, particularly before I started blogging. As someone who likes to be prepared for every possibility, I would use this question to stop myself from doing something. I would weigh up the pros and cons, and then ask myself this question, which would usually leadContinue reading “Why Not?”
