Hello! Tiny little blog update time! Cuz it’s just one of those nights when I don’t have too much to say and my week can basically be described as “more NaNo!”. I hit 30k, had a lot of fun with my draft including a Thursday Morning Tea Time stream with some brainstorming, and I even started working on that short Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Hi there! Bye there!
Two NaNo weeks down, two and change to go! And it’s finally starting to feel like NaNo to me. As I mentioned last week, I had a really slow start this time. As of this weekend, I feel like I’ve finally gotten into the flow with the story, which is a delightful feeling. I wrote 3.5k yesterday! Not something I expect to Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Catching Up!
One week into NaNo, and I am off to a slow but steady start. I am behind, for sure, but I am slowly catching up. Yay for that! I’m really enjoying working on this story, but there’s an edge of nervousness to that enjoyment because I really want it to turn out not just good but, specifically, pretty. Pretty prose is Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – A Slow but Steady Start
Tonight I hit a pretty major and exciting milestone. I finished the first draft of the 3rd Orryn Novella! I decided that I wanted to finish it, mess of a draft that it is, before NaNoWriMo so I wrote the last scene or two, about 1.5k words, tonight. The draft is going to need a lot of work on the rewrite. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – A Pre-NaNo Triumph!
Why are these weeks so weird? I keep realizing it’s Sunday or Monday and I’ve simultaneously done a bunch things but also not all the things I wanted to but also that I have no idea how many hours I have been writing this week. I have NOT been keeping track! I have also not read through my upcoming Patreon Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – What is Even Happening?
Last week was a weird one, y’all. I thought I’d done good planing for my writing goals, in terms of both hours and tasks. Yet somehow, I managed to do almost all my hours (9½ out of 11, even though I didn’t have my stream for computer reasons) but have several tasks that I didn’t even touch on. Those included, unsurprisingly, making Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Bad Planning?
That’s right, lovelies: I have officially picked a NaNoWriMo project. Yay! I will be working on a somewhat dark fantasy, hopefully action-filled romance in a sort of steampunk-ish setting. I have a very firm grasp on the main characters, the superficial structure of the plot and the themes that will generally be dealt with, but also a fair bit left Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – The Author Hath Chosen!
Friday! That means flash fiction! This piece is based on a dream I had last night. Check it out: “Hey… hey, look…” I felt Tam’s hand tapping on my shoulder but didn’t want to turn away from my book. “Mm…” I said. “Hey look!” she said again, louder now, and I sluggishly raised my head. Her eyes were wide as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – 1hp Beholder
I cannot believe that it’s only a month until NaNoWriMo. September really flew by. I had hoped that by now I’d be in a position to start working on an outline for my NaNo story… aaaand instead I am looking at a list of 5 story ideas and trying to decide which one to work on. On the bright side, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – 1 Month to NaNo!
My goodness, this past week! Lovelies, I have not been managing my time well, especially with regard to my reading for uni. This weekend I was so incredibly swamped with reading and assignments and honestly, none of it was a big deal on its own. The problem was I let it all clump up for me at the end of the week. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Oh Hey Monday!
