Today I upgraded to Dropbox Pro, which gives me enough storage space to back up my entire computer. In the spirit of tidy new beginnings, I organized all my files before uploading them to Dropbox, and I found this PowerPoint on surviving NaNoWriMo that I made for school in 2012. At the very least, it… Continue reading Look… There… On the Horizon! (NaNoWriMo)
The sequel to my superhero novel has a title and a cover. Feast your eyes!
Well, my NaNo is going better than I expected 🙂 This year I’m challenging myself to write two books: the sequel to my super hero story (which I finished by the way), and a book I’ve been sitting on for quite some time called The Die-Happy List. So far the latter makes up about 16,000… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Day 3
I may have mentioned at some point that I got a creative writing scholarship for school. I can’t even tell you how happy that made me, and for a thousand different reasons. somebody thinks my writing isn’t crap. I don’t have to take out another loan. It’s all kinds of good.

I’ve… Continue reading I’m On the Brink
I suppose I have a different idea of “failing NaNo” than most people, and mine is that whole days have gone by without me writing a single word. The moment I start to feel down about my story or my ability to finish, I’m failing NaNo. Extreme, yes, but I’m unapologetically a girl of extremes.… Continue reading I’m Sick, Failing NaNo, and Still Generally Optimistic
It’s the day before NaNo, y’all! I’m pretty OUT OF MY FREAKING MIND EXCITED. WHOO. As my nephew would say: ARE YOU READY SON? ARE YOU READY SON? No, not really. I’m not ready at all. I have three books plots that I want to write, and I’ll be trying my hand at all of… Continue reading T’WAS THE DAY BEFORE NANO…
This is my first time ever being part of a blog chain, so I’m purty excited. I’m going to try to link to all the other blogs in the chain at the end of this post if I can find them all. But anywho! The topic for this month’s chain is…. “What are you writing… Continue reading TCWT October Blog Chain – NANO!
I told myself I was going to finish this book in October, and GOSH DARN IT, I am going to! Bear witness, readers. Gabrielle promised herself and you that she would finish UNTITLED by the end of October. Preferably by the thirtieth so she’ll have at least one day for NaNo prep. On the topic… Continue reading It’s October!
