The Wednesday Pen || NaNoWriMo 2020 Check-In #3

Why write original content when you can write fanfiction instead?

I truly did not mean for NaNoWriMo 2020 to turn into a fic extravaganza, but here we are, almost 30,000 words in. I’d say it’s a little late to turn back now. Wouldn’t you agree?

The Wednesday Pen || NaNoWriMo 2020 Check-In #2

Is it really NaNoWriMo without a project in crisis?

Last week, I was bound and determined to make tracks on my angsty sentient weaponry WIP. This week, I’ve realized it wasn’t quite ready for NaNoWriMo 2020, and it needs to sit on the back burner for a while longer, until it develops better structure.

Which means in the middle of NaNo, I’m changing my project. And honestly, it’s a bit like stepping off a cartoon cliff. A moment of weightlessness, then a puff of smoke and a high speed plummet to earth.

And weirdly enough, it’s working.

I can’t believe it’s already here.

2020 has been a mess on all counts, and to tell the truth, I’m still rattled from the election yesterday. I’ve actually stayed offline for the most part, so pardon me if I don’t say much about it. NaNoWriMo 2020 is an oasis from the dumpster fire that is the rest of the year, and I’m trying to preserve that so I’m ready for future days.

One day, I will do my NaNoWriMo prep early.

Today, though, is not that day. Welcome to another edition of the Wednesday Pen, where I promise to learn my lesson about writing and then promptly do the opposite! At least it’s entertaining, though, right?

Writing Wednesday || NaNoWriMo 2019 Wrap

 

Writing Wednesday

We’re at the end of the line. It’s December. NaNoWriMo 2019 is in the rearview mirror after a long, arduous climb. Cryptids have been murdered (sorry, guys), nervous queer nerds have almost kissed (they’re taking their time, it’s fine!), and the bees continue to be magic as all get out (which is super cool, trust me).

So, where is Honey and Haunt standing? And what’s next?

Writing Wednesday || NaNoWriMo 2019 Planning Check-In

Writing Wednesday

It’s that time of year again! NaNoWriMo is right around the corner, and my project has been sitting in the wings, waiting for the curtains to go up so it can shine. Somehow, it’s survived the bumpy planning stage and managed to keep all of my love fixed on it, and I’m going to take that as a good sign for the month ahead!

But let’s dig in, so you know just what I’m tackling this month. 😉
