I won NaNoWriMo! I’ve been avoiding writing or thinking about it – but here’re my wrap-up thoughts 🙂
I’m on track for finishing (maybe even a bit early!), but have had a very inconsistent week’s writing for week 3 of NaNoWriMo 2022.
I provide a short run-down of the week 2 NaNo progress. Still like the characters, but feeling the fatigue of producing the daily total. Half way there!
NaNo week 1 blog. I’m loving it so far. So chuffed with my progress, so enjoying the story I’m unfolding slowly.
For the first time in my life, I’ve reached the start of November with enough emotional capacity to attempt National Novel Writing Month, and a planned out novel to write. Let the magic commence!
It’s been a good long while since I posted a blog about my novel work-in-progress project that’s been bubbling away quietly in the background. The great/excellent/amazing news is that just over three weeks ago, I typed “THE END”. At the end. Having written all the bits between the beginning and the end at least once.Continue reading “Novel update: Project Songbird Draft 1!”
My writing has mostly been not-blog of late, but I’m trying to get back to it; good job I am getting past self-imposed pressure to be the best at everything, now I am no-longer-eligible for 30-under-30 lists!
My parents recently visited the town my granny used to live in, and were bringing back some goods from her house. A result of a little rhyme in a text from dad on the way home, this poem’s a little story about the family moving service we all end up part of at some stage.
Having recently moved house, I got really familiar with letting agent jargon in Rightmove ads. There are some common euphemisms and strange grammatical constructions (wardrobes to bedrooms, for example).
I review ‘The Calculating Stars’ by Mary Robinette Kowal, a masterclass in alternative history, characterisation and compelling narrative.
