Why in the world haven’t I been blogging? Well, I can be quite forgetful…but don’t worry…I’m back! Why, you ask? National Novel Writing Month is just a few days away. My last CampNaNoWriMo attempt didn’t work out so well, but I have a feeling this one will! So, what have I been up to? For about two months, I’ve had a regimen of writing five pages a week.

Now that April is over, I can tell you that I successfully survived CampNaNoWriMo and met my writing goal! Can I get a woot woot? Sure, 10,000 words of progress might not seem like a lot to some of you, … Continue reading CampNaNoWriMo Re-Cap & May Goals

Because I find myself in the midst of working on two projects, I’ve decided to set a word count goal with the intention of working on both projects as I have been the past two months. I’ve come up with a very clever title… Continue reading Customizing Camp NaNoWriMo
Suddenly I was filled with a breath of fresh air. It was almost like I hadn’t taken in breath like this in years. I practically ran out the door in that moment on a quest for a new journal. (Everyone needs a new journal for a new project, right?) Continue reading Inspired? Do it.
