Writing Update: The End of NaNoWriMo

Well, it’s December now. All of the groggy little writers who spent a month writing 50,000 words are sleeping in and waking up to see the world hasn’t fallen to shivers while they’ve been away. Everything’s much the same. Except, of course, for those of us who made the journey. Victors or not in theContinue reading “Writing Update: The End of NaNoWriMo”

Writing Update: The Last Day of NaNoWriMo

50,000 words, 30 days, a lot of caffeine, not a whole lot of sleep. The challenge ends today. We update our word count for the last time. Am I ready for this? On paper, yes. Word count is at over 55,000 words. Story is a mess, but I think that’s to be expected. But there’sContinue reading “Writing Update: The Last Day of NaNoWriMo”

Writing Update: NaNoWriMo…?

So I actually already finished my goal of 50,000 words for the month. Two days ago? Not sure how that happened. Not sure how I feel about it, either. No bells and whistles and whooping went off in my head. No banshee-screams like when I’ve discovered news of favorable contest results, loud enough to frightenContinue reading “Writing Update: NaNoWriMo…?”

Writing Update: NaNoWriMo Day 23

The adventure of writing 50,000 words in 30 days is almost over for another year. As in 4,000 words/7 days close. I don’t mean to say the “novel” I’ve been working on is finished. I’m not sure anyone looking at it would think that. But I’ve been doing what I set out to do. JustContinue reading “Writing Update: NaNoWriMo Day 23”

Writing Update: NaNoWriMo Day 18

Ready for another flurried update on the Search for 50,000 Words (in 30 days)? I’ve been meaning to post more, but I think you can guess why that didn’t happen. Plus I had some other adventures this month to be blogged about soon…enjoy a little clue here, if you like. Anyway. I love the littleContinue reading “Writing Update: NaNoWriMo Day 18”

Writing Update: Nine Days of NaNoWriMo

So we’re just over a week into the writing madness of NaNoWriMo–50,000 words in 30 days. While I probably don’t have the time/shouldn’t be stealing the time for this…well, the lure was too much. I’m not sure if my experience should encourage or discourage someone thinking about doing it. I kind of think of NaNoContinue reading “Writing Update: Nine Days of NaNoWriMo”

Catching Up Part 2: Dragonfest 2019

So in between working on NaNoWriMo (I’m still alive after 18,000 words in 6 days! Ha!), here is the promised blog post about Grand Bookish Adventure no. 2: Dragonfest Renaissance faire. Even though it’s been a couple weeks since it happened. As word of explanation, I am a strolling player at the festivals–wander around, wearContinue reading “Catching Up Part 2: Dragonfest 2019”

So…I might be doing NaNoWriMo…

So I finally caved in to my writing brain and announced a project for NaNoWriMo 2019. That’s right–in addition to full time-university classes, work, rehearsals, performance gigs, blogging, theorizing on magic systems and hunting dragons (was that last one out loud?) I am going to attempt to write 50,000 words in a month. Maintaining sanityContinue reading “So…I might be doing NaNoWriMo…”

To NaNoWriMo or Not NaNoWriMo?

So in the midst of working on posts chronicling book review/symphony trip/Dragonfest 2019/fall book haul…I am faced with a dilemma. It’s almost time for National November Novel Writing Month. The madness where a passel of questionably sane writers gather together, bonded by the singular desire to complete one novel in 30 days. And a question.Continue reading “To NaNoWriMo or Not NaNoWriMo?”
