Happy 2021 everyone! I hope everyone's first days of the year have been promising for what is to come. I have some projects in motion that I cannot wait to tell you about, but first I want to reflect on some things from last year. First up will be my reading list. I had a … Continue reading Books of 2020
Well, I met my goal of 50 books read in 2020. I am actually at 55 books read so far! I have already told you all about the first 25 earlier this year, so let me give you the next 25. At the end of the year I will reveal all the “surplus” books and … Continue reading I Met My Goodreads Goal!
As most of you may know, my dream is to be a published, best-selling author one day. When I was in middle school, I learned that Christopher Paolini had gotten Eragon published when he was nineteen, and he became my hero. Over a decade has passed since then, and the closest to getting published I … Continue reading W.I.P: Writer is Procrastinating
Howdy! It's a little over half way through April. So, I thought it was time to do a check in. My goal for April Camp NaNo was 20,000 words on my novel from November. I have written a grand total of 707 words so far. I just haven't had the motivation to write on that … Continue reading Camp NaNo Check In
The quarantine has produced a miracle. At long last. George R.R. Martin has announced the release date of Winds of Winter. And it is... Unknown. It's April's Fool Day and even I am ashamed at how cruel this joke is. Apologies to readers everywhere. I did reach 25 books read so far this year though! … Continue reading Winds of Winter Release Date!
My career is in accounting. It took me four years to get my CPA license after graduating with my bachelor's degree. The first year of that I was also getting my master's degree while working full time. Accounting students that may be reading this: I do not recommend doing all three at once. Pick two. … Continue reading Create Stories
Go start yours! National Novel Writing Month is here! 20 days. 50,000 words. Roughly 1,667 words a day. Time to ration the discount Halloween candy to get through the challenge. My project this year is Golden Soul. I am also using the software Schrivener for the first time. So far I really like it. Go … Continue reading Happy NaNo!
How's your NaNoWriMo projects going? I am currently sitting at less than 3k words, but I have only had one day where I did not write anything. I also had my story idea change on Monday, so that has also had a factor in my word count. Actually, it almost feels like I'm writing this … Continue reading One Week In!
It's November first, which means I have 29 days until my last CPA exam AND NaNoWriMo has started. Because of said final exam, I am not expecting to hit the 50,000 word mark this year. I will be happy if I manage to write anything at all. If you want to join me, sign up … Continue reading It’s Go Time
Three days in and I have nothing. Thank goodness this not the big one. I still have a couple of months before November. At least Camp NaNo lets you pick your goals. I opted for 20,000 words for the month of July. It's a little less than half of the full NaNoWriMo, but a few … Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo
