NanoWriMo, Writing journey

A Quick NaNoWriMo Update

This is a quick, very quick post; I should be focusing on increasing my word count because writing time is limited today but a quick update is needed. It is a week since I began to work with Megg and six days NaNoWriMo started and a miracle has happened — I am on target!

Day 5 words
I have words!

Some days have been harder than others. It seemed an impossible task on day three, after sleep won over my early morning writing routine and feeling ill but with the knowledge Megg was behind me words were written. How many of the those words will stay after editing? Not many but they have moved the story forward.

I predict today and tomorrow will be a struggle too with hospital visits and tests and I also fell into the trap of research this morning but with a site like the Tea of Life and writing about a tea obsessed witch who can blame me? Just don’t tell Megg

I need to stop procrastinating and write.

How is everyone else doing?

Happy writing!

Love

Reading update: Jan 2018

 

Welcome to February

A new month and a step closer to Spring. I love winter for the excuse of snuggling under the duvet with a good book but I long for sunshine and cheery flowers now. Rather than weekly updates on the books I am reading, I have decided to do monthly ones Рhopefully, they will be easier to keep track of and more time to focus on writing.

Last books I read in January

Life got in the way of updating last week but I finished reading:

Books on my February TBR list

These are the books I would like to read this month

  • Write a Novel in 30 Days by Megg Geri – I am excited to read this. I will update progress on my Instagram¬†account.
  • Still Me by JoJo Moyes – how can I not read this when it called to me from the bookshelf while shopping? Some books are irresistible and the library list is too long. I have missed Louisa Clarke.
  • The Truth of Ella Black by Emily Barr
  • Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
  • Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick – the illustrations are outstanding.
  • Catch up on books to review for upcoming blog tours on Duvet Dwellers Books

And finish Jennifer Gilmour’s Clipped Wings

It will a busy month.

What are you reading this month?
