Day 246

We're in September now, you guys. September. NaNoWriMo is only two months away now, and the end of the year is running full-speed at us. I've already begun plans for my NaNoWriMo effort; well, it helps that I'm using the event as a way to produce a draft of a novel, to be worked upon incrementally… Continue reading Day 246

A Day of Miscellanea

Have I updated you guys recently? I feel like I have but also maybe I haven't. Well. As you've probably noticed Flash Fiction July is over now, by several days. It wasn't the maddest challenge I've ever done, but then when you think about combining regular blogging - my Letters challenge, regular poetry contributions... nope, hang on,… Continue reading A Day of Miscellanea

Changes in Routine

I wish I was the person… Continue reading The Travelling Writer

Reasons to Write

Okay, I'm setting the timer for fifteen minutes. Then, it's back to NaNoWriMo. I've probably answered this question at least once before, but I think it bears repeating - especially as I've since come up with my latest and possibly most honest answer. I write because it means taking my place in the world. Essentially,… Continue reading Reasons to Write

A Life-Changing Blog

I bet you guys can guess what life-changing magic I'd like to attain from blogging. Regular readers, for sure... even those of you who are new here might have an idea. Go on, have a guess.  (I was going to do some clever thing where I revealed the answer at the end of the post… Continue reading A Life-Changing Blog
