There’s not much else to say other than I have typed ‘THE END’. Here’s what that looked like: That’s my main goal done and dusted! I also participated in Camp NaNoWriMo in April, and I LOVED the fact that you can mark hours rather than word counts–it helped me so much! NEXT GOAL: celebrate. With chocolate… Continue reading Stage 4: DRAFT COMPLETE!!
This month, I’ve decided to change things up a little with my April wrap up. I kind of want to wrap up my entire month–from reading to writing to everything in-between. Books before Looks: This month I read a grand total of: 11 books, which is 6 more then my goal. I read Lumberjanes, Vol.… Continue reading How you doing, April? | Wrap Up
Around a year ago today I published this post. It was all about the 25 things I wanted to do before 25, and written just before I turned 23. Well, in a couple of days, I turn 24 (which means, I’m an proper, PROPER adult now, right?), so I thought I’d do a little update. Here’s… Continue reading Update: 25 things before 25.

I have a sort of plan RE how it’s all going to end (but that could change, at any time.) It’s a first draft… Continue reading Stage 2: Draft 1 | Writing
I struggle with January. Like, a lot. It’s cold, Christmas is over, everyone seems to be really into fitness&health all of a sudden and did I mention it’s cold? It’s the month of fresh starts that seem suddenly stale two weeks in. It’s the month of tube strikes, and promised snow that never materialises. It’s… Continue reading Finding the magic in January.
So, I’m writing a book. It’s not a book at the moment, it’s just a jumble of words on a page. But one day, it’s going to be a book. I really enjoy reading about other people’s writing process–what they do that’s the same/different from me, so I thought I’d journal my writing process. I’ve never… Continue reading Stage 1: Draft 1 | Writing
