How Goes Camp NaNo? 50k + Snippets!

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

Easter and Craziness: March Wrap Up

(Just a note before we start: Unfortunately, due to Internet issues, there aren’t any pretty pictures for this post. Sorry about that)

Hello guys!! Can you believe we’re a whole week into April already?? It’s crazy, but I’m going to update you on my March. These posts of mine tend to be really, really long, but today I’m going to attempt to shorten my monthly wrap-up posts, in the hope that I won’t sound so rambly!

Before we start, I just want to mention that yesterday I did a guest post for Audrey Caylin on the importance of hope and you really should go have a look, and check out Audrey’s blog as well, because it’s amazing (and she’s amazing too). Continue reading

Good morning/afternoon/day, whatever you like! There’s good news and bad news today. The good news is that we’re here with another Beautiful People post hosted by the wonderful Cait and Sky! The bad news is that this is going to be the last Beautiful People post for the foreseeable future. I’ve had a lot of fun doing these posts over the last year or so, but massive thank yous to Cait and Sky for hosting (and we hope that one day, the Beautiful People will return 😀 ).

So, let’s get on to the questions! Continue reading

The Unofficial Movie/Tv Show Tag

Yesterday, the wonderful Christine Eyre tagged me for this unofficial movie tag. She asked me to list a couple of the movies and/or TV shows that have had the most influence on me (I assume either on my writing or on my life, she didn’t clarify. But, since I haven’t ever watched a movie I would call life changing, I’m going to focus on how they’ve impacted my storytelling).

This should be fun! Continue reading
