I hope you’ve all had a good week! I’ve had a okay week myself. This week I’m back to my original routine of worldbuilding, studying and writing as opposed to worldbuilding, writing and worldbuilding. To be honest, the double worldbuilding sessions didn’t make too much of a difference, I wasted most of them overthinking things and not working. Hopefully this Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – New-ish Projects
Last night I handed in a long overdue assignment. It didn’t turn out very well, but I’m holding out hope that it turned out well enough and that I won’t have to re-do it. Next week I’m moving on to the next module on my to-study list, but this week I’m giving myself a bit of a break from Uni. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Worldbuilding Week!
It’s been a weird first week of Camp NaNoWriMo. I’ve had two good days, two awful days and one okay day (hopefully a late night writing spurt will make it two okay days so far). I’m still well on track for my goal of 15k (I raised it from 10k a couple of days in), but I’m having some trouble Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Spotty Progress
Until Camp NaNoWriMo, that is. And personally, I’m just itching to get started! It’s been a really good week this week. The schedule I set up for myself in last week’s update is working really well! Quite contrary to what I feared, the studying part of it has progressed slowly but surely, and the part I’ve struggled the most with has Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – One Day Left!
This weekend, about 6 months and 10 days after the release of Going Home, its sequel Dress Rehearsal Rag hit the Kindle Store and Smashwords. Yay! Normally I’d do a separate post about news as big as this, but since it’s Monday, and since I’ve already told most people about it view Twitter, Facebook and my newsletter (which you, as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Dress Rehearsal Rag is out! And onwards.
Today’s ThinkKit prompt, the second to last of the year, is to try and find a word with which to sum up your year. Well, I’ve got a word for you: milestones. This year, I published my first book. My boyfriend moved here from Canada. I finally finished a course that’s been tormenting me for a couple of years. And I Continue reading A Single Word – ThinkKit Prompt #30
Yesterday’s ThinkKit prompt was skipped because I was at a wedding and got home late, but today’s is to write about something that surprised you this year (hence the somewhat suggestive title). Well, a lot of things has surprised me this year, like most years. How much better I sleep with the window open has surprised me. How many socks one Continue reading Ooh! Aaah! – ThinkKit Prompt #21
Yesterday’s ThinkKit prompt got overshadowed by me freaking out over how quickly Going Home was published on Amazon. Today the prompt is to wite about something from the last year that you wish you could do over (hence the rather lame title). I knew before I’d even finished reading the prompt what I’d write about. In October, I turned in Continue reading Mulligan – ThinkKit Prompt #12
I finally finished my assignment! So now I’m half relieved and half holding my breath waiting to see if I pass. This is a course (or rather a module) that’s long overdue for completion, and if I don’t get it over with now it’ll seriously mess up my plans for the next couple of years. So cross your fingers for Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – A Sigh of Relief
This past week I have: Written ~550 words during my daily writing Started reading October’s chapter from One Year to a Writing Life, but not doing the exercises yet Posted about September’s chapter from One Year to a Writing Life. I originally thought I hadn’t done this because I’d accidentally posted it under the wrong date. My last goal, unfortunately, fell victim to poor time-management and a Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Viva Barcelona!
