Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had a lot of time to get some work done and catch up on some things, which prompted this blog.

1984 and Us

A note before I start: I know this is the first time I’ve posted in a week. I want to thank all of you for being here, and for allowing me to take a few days off for the holiday and to celebrate some special anniversaries. We’re back to our regular schedule!

Earlier this year, I was reading an interesting article about how sales of the book 1984 had skyrocketed since the Trump election. While the article didn’t say why this was the case, I had some ideas, so I decided to read it again myself.

Camp NaNoWriMo Final Check In

For the past month, I’ve been furiously writing. I’ve developed characters, moved plots, decided on a name for my book, and watched my word count crawl closer and closer to my 50,000 goal. I updated you all every week, bringing you along with me during my triumphs and my failures. But I know what you’re thinking. Dude, it’s May 1st, did you win or not?

NaNo Check In: Week Two Blues

Hello friends, it’s time to check in with my NaNo progress for this week!

Word Count: 21,404. This doesn’t include the writing I’m going to do today!

2017-04-14_0956

On target? Yes and no. As predicted, I wasn’t able to do a lot of writing last weekend. Okay, I didn’t write at all. So this week, I’ve upped my daily word count to catch up. I will be back on track tomorrow!

Challenges: My increased word count in addition to the slog of week two is making writing really painful. Sometimes I have to force myself to open Scrivener, or bribe myself with treats. I haven’t given up yet, though! 

Victories: My book is really beginning to take shape. It’s so weird because when I started it just kind of felt like I was writing down a bunch of characters and their stories, but now we are really moving and grooving. I also know now that my book is going to be really long before the revision stage begins. I’m talking like 100-150k words. So, I’m probably not going to be done at the end of April. I’ll probably finish in May because I plan on keeping my word count goal at 1,667 every week day until I’m done with the first draft.

Thank you for checking in!

Write with Me… Camp NaNo


I’ve always loved stories. Reading has been such a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I’ve never stopped reading, but I’ve also never been a writer. As much as I love different worlds, plots, and characters, it never once occurred to me that maybe I could create my own.
