Hello, everyone! If you're doing NaNoWriMo, how's it going? If you're not, then how's life in general? So far, I think I've been doing pretty good. I mean, I did sort of not write anything for the past two days, but today I've written 1,357 words--and counting, since I'll continue after this post. I'm going … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2016 Week One
I know that I already posted earlier, but Astro's written a really good pep talk that you should check out if you're doing NaNoWriMo!
Hello, everyone! (I know it's a Monday and that I'm supposed to post on only Tuesdays and Saturdays, but writing and posting this tomorrow wouldn't work because it's November first. Except that this is so late in the evening that it might act as if it was November first, I don't know.) Eeeep. It came … Continue reading My Characters and NaNoWriMo
Today I am doing the Beautiful Books link-up from Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further Up And Further In. I've never done one of these before, so I'm pretty excited to do this. I will be introducing my novel(la) that I'm working on for this NaNo and that I'm currently attempting to plot out and worldbuild. … Continue reading Beautiful Books Tag/Introducing My NaNo Novel(la)
Like the zucchini bread, I have no clue what the original source for this recipe was. My mom got it from a friend ages ago, but I don't know where he got it from. It's now pretty much a family recipe that we've used for as long as I can remember. These molasses cookies are best fresh out … Continue reading Molasses Cookies Recipe
Today I'm pretty busy, so I only have time for a very short post. But Kate over at between the sky and me is hosting a writing contest! I'm on Team Pumpkin Pie, and I can't wait for the competition to start. If any of you joined, I'm sure Kate would appreciate it, and the competition would also start … Continue reading Beautiful Worlds Writing Competition
Last year, I decided what I was going to write for NaNoWriMo two days before it started. I had no planning, prep, or worldbuilding done. That was a big mistake, but it was my first NaNo, so instead of wondering why my (only slightly) younger self was so unintentionally stupid, I'm going to learn from it. … Continue reading Planning For NaNo
I stared at an empty draft page with a blinking cursor for five minutes before I started writing this post. Prepare yourself for a very rambling blog post (and feel free to skim). First of all, your sources. There are a lot of baby-naming websites online, and while they can give you ideas, they don't always … Continue reading Naming Your Characters
This is my grandmother's recipe for zucchini bread. I don't know where she got it, but I had some while I was visiting her this summer and liked it a lot. She has a book that's sort of like a scrapbook where she keeps a bunch of cut out and handwritten recipes, and this was in there. I … Continue reading Zucchini Bread Recipe
*greets followers* Hello, and welcome to my new blog! You probably think that there are hardly any differences, other than it being emptier and having a slight variant on my old URL address, but as previously mentioned, I made this new blog for a few technical and personal reasons. It's pretty much going to be … Continue reading Welcome!
