How Goes Camp NaNo? 50k + Snippets!

Camp nano header

How goes Camp NaNoWriMo for you? Has it been a good month or a bad one? So far, for me, it’s been a pretty good Camp because on Monday 16th I reached 50k, which was my goal for the month!

So today, I’m going to briefly update you on how my Camp NaNo novel (When Infinity is Empty, which you can read about here) is going!

I started a day late this month, on the 2nd instead of the 1st, because the first was not only a Sunday but Easter Sunday, so it felt a bit wrong. Anyway, that doesn’t seem to have impacted the story a lot. It was so much fun on that Monday just to plunge into this story (which I’ve been planning since New Years Day) and to immerse myself again in the world that I basically solely lived in last November. It’s been amazing to go back and visit Chessy, to expand her world and to deepen the relationships she has with the lucky few who managed to survive the last novel. I’ve also loved introducing the new characters, in particular the Caelans, Dr Alexander Manly and Zac Stoner. And I’m setting everything up for the third book too, which is really exciting 😀 (This third book is going to be epic). Continue reading

~Writing~

Well, NaNoWriMo happened.

And I, uh, wrote 80,000 words, because apparently I don’t value my sanity. However, I worked so hard this month and I feel really satisfied. I also feel kind of annoyed because I’m 80k into my novel and I’m estimating that it will need at least 25k to get me to the end, maybe even more. So far, this is the longest novel I’ve ever written. I’ve also spent over 96 hours slaving away at this novel. I’m braindead now, but I am determined to have this novel finished before December 31st.

Other than Stars Fill Infinity I haven’t done any writing, but I think I can be excused for that. Black and White is no closer to being edited, so, yeah… Continue reading

NaNoWriMo Halfway Update

~Well, Hello all!~

Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the world of writers, you’ll know that November is currently hosting the world’s greatest writing event–National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, because National Novel Writing Month is a bit of a mouthful. In one month, writers from all over the world attempt to write 50,000 words in a month. They are driven by competitiveness, caffeine and not much else.

Though I’ve participated in both Camp NaNos this year, this is my first time participating in the official thing. And I have exciting news for you…

Beautiful Books–How’s the Writing Going?

bb-redone

Hello all! I come to you today from the depths of my semi-hiatus to bring you a Beautiful Books post (mostly because I’m competitive and want to be in the first 10 links, so I can’t wait for my next post. :D). 

If you’re unfamiliar with Beautiful Books, it’s a linkup held monthly by Sky and Cait. It usually focusses on characters (Beautiful People), however during the NaNo season, we switch to works in progress. 😀 

Onto the questions! Continue reading
