I may have promised you all a winning blog post about NaNoWriMo… it’s late, but here it is!
Yup, that’s me!
There’s the proof.
I hope everyone who took part in NaNoWriMo got something out of it, even if you didn’t reach your 50k word count goal.
All the best in your writerly endevors for 2017.
So, I had planned to do more updates, but that didn’t happen.
Here’s my one, and likely, only update about my NaNo progress until I post about winning (which I will!)
Happy writing to those who are still battling against the writers block and juggling the word slinging. You can do it!
Congrats to those who have already won! I’ll see you all on the flip side of Nov.
Creatures and crawlies are stirring, ready for another dose of fun and frivolity.
I got that a bit mixed up with Halloween.
NaNoWriMo will see the writerly folk disappear into darkened rooms to splatter brain matter onto keyboards across the globe.
Am I ready?!
Will I enjoy the ride?
Will I give it a red-hot go?!
Who else is gearing up for the insanity of NaNo?
I’m quite in awe of the determination of this NaNo-er: https://jccauthon.wordpress.com/2016/10/13/nano-prepping/
I just pants it and end up in deep trouble when all I end up writing is filth. But! I have 50,000 words of filth. I’m hoping I will eventually produce something epic.
So, who else out there is jumping on the NaNo train in 2016?
NaNoWriMo has been done and dusted for another year – I even managed to finish a couple of days early!!
I’m ahead on my reading challenge for 2015 – only 6 books left to read in 2015!
I’m currently reading:
And swooning over Damen and even Laurent (who I hated in book 1).
Keep your eyes peeled, I’ll be posting a number of reviews in the next few weeks and in the new year I should have some articles and other writerly goodness coming.
Did any of you participate in NaNo this year? If so, how did you go?
Lead up to October…
I’d decided many moons ago I wanted to have a costume party for my 30th, but I had too many options available for my costume and I couldn’t decide. So I spent a long time searching the web for amazing costume ideas, costume shops (the family friendly kind and even some of the ‘adult’ kind) and while searching I kept stumbling across these Faun or Satyr legs that people were making. They looked amazing and I kept thinking about how great it would be if I could get someone to make them for me. I researched it – they were quite expensive – so I forgot about them. I kept searching. I’d decided I was going to dress up as a Geisha, Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, a vampire queen and many, many others.
Over the months leading up to my party in September I picked a costume, would go to find the parts needed, couldn’t find them and have to start the process over again. I kept running into these amazing photos of the Satyr legs and horns and what not and kept getting drawn to them. I started stockpiling the photos of these half goat men and women with legs and hooves and horns. I think people would have thought I’d gone a bit loopy if they’d seen my browsing history. Finally, we got to about 6 weeks out from the party and I needed to decide. I picked the Satyr.
