a few minutes to waste | update

Posted 11 May, 2017 by katheryn13 in Updates / 0 Comments

UPDATE I have four minutes before I’m to start my nightly word count thingy and so far it’s my third night and I’ve done pretty well. I try to aim for 1k at 7.30pm each day. I missed yesterday because I was out. Which you probably know, but I’ll tell you anyway: I started getting therapy. Wahay go me! I’ve only had 2 sessions so far but it’s going okay, and she’s really easy to talk to. I’ll be honest, I was worried I wouldn’t […]



Whoops | #CampNanowrimo ’17

Whoops | #CampNanowrimo ’17

CAMP NANOWRIMO ’17 UPDATE TWO   Oh crap. It’s been a lot longer than a week since my last update, hasn’t it? *shakes head* Sorry. Anyway, how’s Camp Nanowrimo 17 going? Well….um….. I started a new idea. *cringes* Don’t hate me. I can’t help myself! It’s a problem. But in any case, I actually somewhat outlined this new idea so I have Act 1 and Act 2 all laid out ready to write up – I’ve written chapter 1 already and it’s going good. I […]

Name Game | Writing Fantasy + GIFS

Yeah, so my last post was a  little…intense. I know. I’m sorry. So I want to write fantasy. HOW? How does one even DO that? I mean, so many writer’s manage it, but how do I? That is what I’m asking! I have an idea, a slight one, and not at all fully formed, but it’s there, poking its head around the corner like an over-excited child at Christmas. I’ve even drawn a somewhat ugly looking map…only because I kind of had to. And let […]

Chill Out | personal

There are things that have been taking WAY too much space in my head. Worries, just…frustrating things.  I swear as I’ve gotten older, especially with social networking, I’ve become needier? Desperate almost. I hate it. I hate how social media has changed me. I mean, you’d think by now I’d be used to being lonely, to not having the life I want? But I’m not.  So you know what? I need to put back up those walls. Try and distance myself from social media for a […]



Review: 4.5 stars to Forever Geek (Geek Girl #6) by Holly Smale

Review: 4.5 stars to Forever Geek (Geek Girl #6) by Holly Smale

My name is Harriet Manners and I’ll be a geek forever… Harriet Manners knows almost every fact there is. Modelling isn’t a sure-fire route to popularity. Neither is making endless lists. The people you love don’t expect you to transform into someone else. Statistically, you are more likely to not meet your Australian ex-boyfriend in Australia than bump into him there. So on the trip of a lifetime Down Under Harriet’s to-do lists are gone and it’s Nat’s time to shine! Yet with nearly-not-quite-boyfriend Jasper […]

Did I do it? | My Writing Journey

    Hi again! Remember me? Yeah you do, you little monkeys!  Guess what?  … … Guessed yet?  I finished my first draft of my ‘peach street’ magic story. Yeah okay don’t get too excited. I might have gotten to the end, but that doesn’t mean it’s finished. Obviously. I wrote ‘the end’ but it didn’t really feel like the right ending. I won’t know what my true ending will be until I’ve edited because,  a) I need to change the POV to first person b) […]

Opinions, And Why We’re Allowed Them

The title of this post might seem misleading, but I utterly suck at coming up with decent titles. Sorry. I was going to make a video about what I’m about to talk to you about, but then I remembered how whiny my voice sounds sometimes and well…that put me off. Also, my blog is small in comparison to youtube and not that many people see it. I mean, I have over 700 followers on twitter but do I ever get 700 views? No. Not that […]

WHUT R WERDS? | My Writing Journey PART 7?

I don’t even know what part it is anymore WHERE HAVE I BEEN? WHY AM I SHOUTING? CAN YOU EVEN HEAR ME? So hi! Long time no chit chat, right? Did you miss meh? I did write a post weeks ago, but unfortunately it was a rather depressing mess. So here I am! You can probably guess that now I have realised the errors of my ways and become a whole new person?  kidding! The truth is, I got to the end of Lost and […]

Review: 5 stars to Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt

Lexi Angelo has grown up helping her dad with his events business. She likes to stay behind the scenes, planning and organizing…until author Aidan Green – messy haired and annoyingly arrogant – arrives unannounced at the first event of the year. Then Lexi’s life is thrown into disarray. In a flurry of late-night conversations, mixed messages and butterflies, Lexi discovers that some things can’t be planned. Things like falling in love… Unconventional is a story that completely blew me away. It’s relatable but not in […]
