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 2

Good afternoon guys! How is everyone doing?

NaNo week 2 is officially DONE! That means you should be half way through, at 25k! Is everyone caught up? Way ahead? Lagging behind? Let me know in the comment section below!

This week I knew I had some things coming up, with a friend visiting from home, and my final return to my usual home (been staying away, more on that later), so I set my word count a bit lower for this week, hoping for around 15k. So let’s see how I did!

Denica’s Message (extended)

In chapter 2 of Haven, Haven’s mother returns with the news of her family’s demise on her lips. Though that scene was only written from Haven’s memory in the novel, I’ve rewritten it as it happened. Enjoy!

Denica’s Message

Haven was never meant to be Queen. She was always meant to live the life of a princess, happy, carefree and just a little bit spoiled. She’d spent nineteen years of her life that way, and didn’t know any different – that is until the war brewing to the West found her door. It was a beautiful summer afternoon when her blissful life shattered like glass.

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.

Nanoprep: Character Worksheet (2016)

Hey guys! NaNoWriMo is almost here!! Can you even believe it?

I haven’t spent as much time Nanoprepping as I probably should have this year, given I was trying desperately to finish writing the Queen of Thieves before November. Somehow I finished it over a week early (woo!), so that’s giving me some extra time to figure out everything.

For this year’s Nano project, I’ll be writing the sequel to Haven, which is pretty exciting, let me tell yah. SAVAGES is going to be a fun, although very dark YA project, which actually kind of works since QoT was really dark too and I’m already in the mindset for that!

Alright guys, it’s Nanoprep time.

Ready to get serious? Ready to get down and dirty with the nitty gritty details? I hope so!

You have to either write 1600 words a day, or choose your battles and write a LOT more than that to make it. It’s a ton of work, but it is SO worth it. So let’s go over my top 5 tips for your best Nanoprep yet!
