~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.

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

~Well, Hello all!~

First of all, apologies for missing my usual Saturday post. I was in Dubbo with my family, visiting the zoo and having a grand time. I could have pre-scheduled a post, but I honestly didn’t have time and couldn’t be bothered. So…

Well, Beautiful Books went up last week, so I’ll be answering the questions and telling you all a bit about my NaNoWriMo novel, which is currently in the stages of planning. It has the rough working title of Stars Fill Infinity, mostly because that sounds really pretty.

If you want to know a bit more about Beautiful Books, check out Cait @ Paper Fury or Sky @ Further Up and Further In.
