So, another December has begun and another NaNoWriMo has been won. Last week was a tough one, to be honest. I won NaNo by the skin of my teeth and the last part of the draft was a bit of a mess as my outline got derailed by worldbuilding details that came up organically while I drafted. But I am Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Coming Down From NaNo
As you may have noticed, it’s been a bit quiet around here lately. I’ve been adjusting to getting back to work, and to gradually shifting more time and focus over to my studies. I also spent a few weeks with a completely shattered screen on my iPhone, which wouldn’t have been so bad if it was just the phone part I was Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Coming out of a Slump
This has been an exciting week, lingering colds not withstanding. I hit a small, but significant, author milestone (see the last bullet point on my list of achievements this week). I also did some actual student stuff for the first time in a while. Specifically, I sent in a project description for my BA thesis.

The only real bummer is it leaves less time for my creative work. With that in mind, I’ve revised my “productivity block” system to get a little more out of the days (two Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to Work
A few days ago, my one person household became a two person household when the man I’ve been in a LDR with for years moved in with me. So far, so good! It’s a bit of an adjustment, so I’m a little “off my game” at the moment, but one positive things I’ve noticed (aside from the cuddles) is that Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – There’s a boy in my apartment!
Boy, did it take me a while to get around to writing this post! I was a bit burnt out on blogging after the A to Z challenge, I think. Anyway, through some miracle I managed to do the Chapter 4 exercises from One Year to a Writing Life during April in spite of said challenge and Camp NaNoWriMo. They are, admittedly, Continue reading One Year to a Writing Life – April – The Short Story and the Short-short
