NaNoWriMo 2016 – Week 4

Can’t believe NaNo is over and Christmas is just around the corner. I swear it seems like 2016 just started a few weeks ago.

Very proud to be a Nano-Winner this year, especially so early. How did everyone else do? Did you make it? Did something come up that you didn’t? No matter what, you did something this month. You started a BOOK. Not everyone can say they’ve done that, and not everyone is going to finish a book either. So I wish you the best of luck in finishing your book! There’s always NaNoFiMo next month, and I know I myself will be using it to finish my book as well!

NaNoWriMo 2016 – Week 3

Good afternoon everyone? How is Nano going?

NaNo week 3 is OVER, and I am officially a Nano-Winner! 😀 Could not be happier to be ahead of the game, especially after a lacklustre week of illness. Hit 50k Monday afternoon during my final co-hosting of live sprints with the Patchwork Press team! It was tons of fun, and got me over the finish line. I’m very grateful to everyone who stuck around for the extra sprint!

NaNoWriMo 2016 – Week 1

Boy this year’s Nano weeks are weird. Starting on a Tuesday, ending on a Monday… what is this?!

So it’s that time of year again. NaNoWriMo time. Honestly, this is probably my favorite time of the writing year. SO many people get together to support one another. I get to meet some local writers, get a crap ton done, and it just feels great to really focus on one project. Though this year I’m not entirely focusing on one project since I have marketing to do, but I’m only writing ONE project.

In the Works 2016

A year ago today I wrote a post called “In the Works”. Since it’s been a year, I figured it was about dang time I wrote a new one, and let you guys know all about what mischief I’m currently getting into!

Character vs Plot driven novels

This is a topic I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. Generally I find there are 2 types of novels, or two types of ways you can plot/write a novel. These two types can be summed up as Character or Plot driven novels. So which is better? Which tells a better story? Which do you prefer to read?

These are all questions I’ve been asking myself lately. Let’s start out by comparing them.

NaNoWriMo Week 2

NaNoWriMo is definitely in full swing now! We’re half way done with the coming of Sunday. Week 2 is over, so it’s time to look back and see how things went!

Week 1 I aimed for 15k and fell short at 11k by Monday. (boooo!) This week I aimed to add in another 15k to bring myself between 25k and 30k. Let’s see how that went…
