Week 1 of Camp NaNoWriMo is done and I think I am getting into a good writing routine. I am less concerned about my side project, Project NB, and focusing mostly on Project HQ. The pressure is also off because my word count goal for Project NB is only 5,000 words for the entire month … More Week 1 Update | Camp NaNoWriMo July 2020
The day has arrived! I can now add my word count updates to my NaNoWriMo site and the race to reaching my word count goal is on! When I first signed up, I had decided to only work on one project. As you may know from my previous blog posts on writing, I have two … More Day 1 of Camp NaNoWriMo July 2020
No, I don’t mean reading. If you’ve followed me on any platform (including this one), then you know I am an avid reader. Another hobby of mine is writing. I’ve written countless short stories and articles that have never been seen by any eyes other than my own. They’re scattered on random pages in notebooks … More Attempting to Finish My First Novel
Update: I’ve started a free trial of Scrivener (a writing software), and I love it. I’ll be posting an update post soon! If you’ve been following me, you’ve probably figured out that writing is one of my favorite hobbies. I never considered myself as a writer… I still don’t. I think of myself as a … More My Writing Process
It’s about that time for another daily musing. I post these less and less as book reviews and advocacy take up most of my time. As we can all agree, January felt like it lasted about 100 years. I am very happy to be in February and getting on with the year. The days are … More January 2020 Update
It is finally the weekend, and boy am I happy! I didn’t sleep in as late as I would have liked, although by the way I felt this morning, I could’ve slept until late afternoon! I went to be relatively early last night (as opposed to my 2-3AM insomnia nights), so maybe it was the … More An Overrated Book?
I admire my lightened hair in the mirror. Three inches cut off, and highlights so blonde they are almost silver. I love being able to do what I want with my hair. At one point, I even had maroon hair. My whole life, society told me I had to have black hair. It matched my … More More Like Myself
That’s right! It’s also my dog’s 14th birthday, so that’s exciting! It’s another hot day. 101 degrees F. I’ve basically accepted that I won’t be wearing makeup or having nice hair until fall comes. My saving grace is that I am still in writing mode at work so I can be a little more lenient … More Happee Birthdae, Harry!
Yesterday, I took a break from writing my novel and just read. Well… I wrote some book reviews, so I didn’t take a total break from writing. Today was very relaxed and much welcomed. See that book in the picture? The Other Mrs. Miller. I finished it! Have you checked out my review yet? If … More A Lovely Saturday
Finished The Wedding Party, and it was just as good as I hoped it would be. I absolutely love Jasmine Guillory’s style. Many people may take it for granted, but reading about people who look like me without it being a major plot point is a big deal. It confirms that I am normal and … More Venturing into book reviews?
