Change of Heart – NaNoWriMo

I wasn’t planning on doing NaNoWriMo this year. I kept reminding myself that I have too many other demands on my time. Then, on Sunday, I started anyway. Who needs a life anyhow, right? Seriously though, one of my projects on the go is the second book in the Scouts of the Apocalypse trilogy. I actually tested the story out on my Scouts already so it was time to write it. I really want it out in early 2016 so it made sense to get that added kick in the pants NaNoWriMo offers. As you can see by my attached screenshot, Sunday was a good writing day. I plan to have many more of those. So, if you are doing […]

NaNoWriMo 2015

If you’ve ever wanted to challenge yourself in your writing, I highly encourage you to try NaNoWriMo this year. In a nutshell, NaNoWriMo is a self-challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.

A crazy schedule has seen to it that I simply cannot dedicate myself […]

Lost Momentum

I was going great guns with NaNoWriMo the first week and then the wheels fell off. I took my Scouts out to camp Saturday and Sunday so no writing got done: Saturday because I was no where near electricity and Sunday because I was tired from Sunday. At least, that’s my story. I did manage to write again Monday and Tuesday (and again today) but the pace of my writing was only about half what it had been. Still, I’m sitting just shy of 30,000 words as I write this, so I’m still doing okay. I just have to pull my socks back up so I can take a good run at the 70,000 word personal goal. I’m not panicking […]
