    Inspiration

    Hi, Hey, Hello! I noticed something kind of odd the other night while I was shovelling chips into my mouth and looking forward to sitting down properly so that I can demolish the burger that was in my bag standing around the geography section of Waterstones Piccadilly. I was feeling very creatively inspired. Not even to write anything in particular, but in a general sense. I just wanted to walk a little further down, take a seat in that cafe (which I love) and start writing. I mean it was a work day and a Friday night so I had nothing on me but my phone that I could write…

    Alright, Let’s Do This?

    Hi, Hey, Hello! All the way back in October (I think, it was around the for sure I guess, it had to be before November at least) I declared my intentions to attempt Nano last month. And so I went in with the best of intentions and had all these plans and all that jazz and then like clockwork, and seriously there was a part of me that always expected this to happen, I lost all motivation. All of it. Any creative buzz I felt buzzing underneath my skin and settling into my bones in the months prior to that just faded away without a trace. I got just under…

    Camp Nano – The Final Update

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So last week I felt full of hope that I could actually churn out 10,000 words for the month and get it done on time. I honestly felt like on some level that I could achieve that. At this point on the 27th of the month, I am not so sure anymore. My word count has not officially changed since last week. That’s mainly because for some unknown reason I have yet to type up everything that I have written up in a notebook so I don’t actually know the true word count. I would guess that it’s around 5,000 words. And look, realistically speaking I could…

    Camp Nano – Week 2

    Hi, Hey, Hello! The title pretty much tells you all you need to know about this post (which I am currently writing while being distracted by Game of Thrones, so good to have it back). I am doing another update on Camp Nano. It’s going well so far. Officially I have just over 3,000 words written down on the document that is currently housing this month’s attempt at this. However I have written more than that. I’m not quite sure how much more, but it’s all scrawled in my truly awful handwriting in a notebook and I haven’t quite gotten around to typing it up and adding stuff to it, because…

    Camp Nano- Week 1

    Hi, Hey, Hello! You know me, I love an update post and it’s been a week since July started which means it has now been a week since Camp Nano has started, and well I actually have words to contribute to my overall word count aim for the month. You read them al yesterday. That’s it. That’s all I have written so far. And it is just under 2,000 words. Which means that I am 2/10’s of the way through my goal for the month. I am not gonna lie, I am surprised at myself. I know I set myself that target and all but I also know myself and…
