The Trouble With Having An Idea is… | My Writing Journey (Part 2)

The Trouble With Having An Idea is… | My Writing Journey (Part 2)

  Part 2 So here we are again. Didn’t I tell you I’d probably need to do these weekly? Since my last update, I’ll be honest. My words have not been flowing freely. Whenever I try to add more to the word count, I find I need to delete a few lines. So really, I’m not getting anywhere. It’s sooooo frustrating. I think this story is becoming…ugh, I can’t believe I’m saying this…stilted. It feels dry. Something isn’t working (still!) and I don’t know how […]

Slowly, Slowly, Catchy Monkey | Week 3 of #NaNoWriMo2016

2016 WEEK 3 UPDATE Ugh, what a week. Nano is not going strong for me, though, I’ll start you off with something good: I reached my original 30k goal! So that means I’ve now changed my goal to 40k. I’m so pleased because at one point I wondered if I’d make it. I’m not near the end of the story – even though I have notes on roughly what I want to happen, I still have no idea how I’m going to get there. Sigh. […]



What are words? | Week 1 of #NaNoWriMo2016

What are words? | Week 1 of #NaNoWriMo2016

Guys, guys, guys…HALP? I honestly don’t know why I chose to do this. I mean…50k in a month? Am I mad? YES. Yes, I am. So as I forgot to actually VLOG this week, I realise I’d have to do a written post about my progress so far. WHUUUUUT WHYYYY CRIES Okay, enough dramatics.  I’ve been pretty behind on my word count, but not as much as in previous years. I’m  holding up well. Here’s a break down: Tuesday 1st November: I kinda cheated this day […]


Did somebody say #NaNoWriMo?

Did somebody say #NaNoWriMo?

I was going to make a video, proclaiming how I would be taking part in the greatest writing challenges of our generation, NaNoWriMo. It would have been magical. Sigh. But, because I am still ill – though honestly, I’ve been ill for a lot longer than this before but for some reason this seems exceptionally long and therefore I am 1000% done – and I can’t exactly TALK properly without coughing like a crack addict (do crack addicts cough? I dunno. I would have put ‘smokers’ […]


#HotAndSticky Writing Challenge Weekly Update: Wait, it’s Week 2 already??? #AmWriting #WIP

#HotAndSticky Writing Challenge Weekly Update: Wait, it’s Week 2 already??? #AmWriting #WIP

  Is it…do my eyes deceive me? Is it the end of week 2 ALREADY? Woah. I mean, where has the time gone? Hopefully well spent, right? RIGHT?  See for yourself. Unfortunately, I’ve been a bad bunny this week and though, yes, I have been writing, I have also forgotten to keep track. So… If you didn’t already see my last update (which was a video), see it here:      So last week, I made it, in total to 45,943.  I’d started at just over […]
