NaNoWriMo Week 4 – The end is the beginning

Nanowrimo didn't go as planned this year, and that's okay. I've got almost 20k new words in my draft and I'm ready to start the serial soon. I'm a little bummed that I didn't have the all-out enthusiasm this year to complete 50k in 30 days. But, sometimes progress is slow.

Nanowrimo Eve

Twas the day before Nano and all through the house the writer is panicking over which story to write. Okay, I'm not really panicking. More like I'm really trying to convince myself that I will finish the draft that is in progress instead of following the shiny new idea that's been percolating. But that's just… Continue reading Nanowrimo Eve
