Camp NaNoWriMo 2018 Update

Camp NaNoWriMo 2018 Update

So we’re half way through April, and halfway through Camp NaNoWriMo, so I thought it was about time I did an update on my progress! My target for this Camp NaNoWriMo was to add 30,000 words to my WIP, making my daily target 1,000 words. So far I’ve been keeping up with it, and my Camp NaNo word count was… Read more »

So March is over, and April is here, and with it the beginnings of some decent weather! It has been raining off and on here in my corner of England, but there has also been some warmer days mixed in there, which has been nice. Although I live in a very touristy seaside town, and because the kids have been… Read more »

I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo 2018!

I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo 2018!

So, I’m at it again! I’ll be NaNoWriMoing again this April, although because this is Camp NaNo as opposed to the main event in November, I’ll be setting myself a lower target of 30,000 words. That’s 1,000 words a day I intend to add to my novel manuscript (currently around 58,000 words!), which I think is nice and doable. However,… Read more »

So considering this is my February ‘Life Lately’ post, I’ve left it pretty late. Mostly because time has really been getting away with me and it only just occurred to me that it’s the middle of March already, and I haven’t done this post! Not that I have a huge amount to report over February, other than the English weather… Read more »

So, this is actually the second time I’ve written this post! I had an absolute panic on Sunday night when I had a massive problem with my blog. I updated some plugins, which totally messed up the site, but when I tried to restore a back up it then appeared that I had somehow lost every single blog post I’d written… Read more »

Is it me, or does Christmas already feel like ages ago? I always find January to be such a weird month, with the excitement (and stress!) of Christmas quickly fading, as everything seems to go from being busy, busy, busy to just…blah. I did have a really nice Christmas though, and I actually got three days off work over the… Read more »

My New Year’s Resolutions 2018

My New Year’s Resolutions 2018

Happy New Year everyone! So here we are: 2018! I always find the start of a new year a strange combination of slightly depressing, yet wonderfully hopeful. Yes, the festive season is over, and everything is going back to normal, but at the same time the year is stretching out ahead, and it feels as if anything could happen. Maybe… Read more »

I don’t want to start out this post by yelling, BUT HOW THE HELL IS IT LESS THAN THREE WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS ALREADY!? WHERE HAS ALL THE TIME GONE!? Christmas just always feels like one of those things that sneaks up on me: one minute it seems to be ages away, and then suddenly it’s a matter of weeks and… Read more »
