• NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 22

    This story really won’t write itself. Travis and I have, what seems to be, a really tough relationship. He won’t let me know more about him and he won’t let me write his story without some serious resistance here and it’s starting to get on my nerves. I started to get somewhere and then it seems like anything and everything that can distract me will be able to distract me. I did manage a solid writing session and I really wanted to go to the write in at my old uni today, but I was on waiting for a delivery duty, which didn’t come until like 3pm, so I could…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 21

    I had a full day of retail work today, juggling both of my jobs, I left the house at 7 this morning and had a brief stint at home to change uniforms and then didn’t get home until 6. It was a tough day, I manage to bruise my thigh up pretty well at work so I was not up for much today. It seems that the universe was definitely on my side and urging me to relax a little. And if it wasn’t that it was getting interrupted through both of my writing wars in the chat, so it’s 10:30 and I’m calling it a night because I’m getting…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 20

    Today’s wording was a little more productive between all of the things I had to do, which was actually really nice. My fingers, by this stage were actually itching to get some writing done. Today’s session was tempered a little by the fact that I pulled something in my hand again. Every time I seem to think that it’s on the mend I’ll do something stupid like hold my cast iron skillet, that’s heavy as fuck, and think that it’s all good. Nope. Not today. It’s ok though I managed to get a solid session in. But the problem that I have now? Or most of the time? My characters…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 19

    Again my writing suffered today. I did not a lot of words and it might be because I’m procrastinating and the story is unknown and unfamiliar to me. To be honest, I don’t really feel like writing, I’ve also had some time at my retail job today and because I’m such an introvert, I always struggle so much when it comes to conversing with people and it’s not that I can’t, it’s that I need to curl up and not talk to a soul for like days afterwards, which is part of the problem when there are people that want your attention or you have more work to do. So,…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 18

    Ok, so I’m not perfect and I’m owning that. I wanted to do some writing today, I really did but it was another day that was packed full with things to do. First, I had to vote in a by election, I didn’t quite get organised enough to do a postal vote so I went in and walked the short distance from my apartment to the polling booth, nothing out of the ordinary and I had time between my next outing and when I had to go…did I write? No. Do I feel guilty about that? No. I’m 66,000 words into my NaNoWriMo and I’ve started my second story. I’m…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 17

    Well this one is going to be really short. I have every intention of waking up early and writing but guess who went back to sleep and leisurely got up and did nothing before work? This writer. Yeah, I wanted to try and get some writing done after work but I had at date day with my man where we basically bar hopped and drunk our way through it. It was pretty fun, probably something I much needed because I’m always so stuck inside. So, while I had the intention to write, didn’t actually do it. Not even sorry. Words: 0 Distractions: The whole day.

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 16

    Dun, dun, duuuun, today I actually started DC. I was going to last night but I got stuck reading and today…today I knuckled down and actually did and I already feel different about this version of it. Perhaps aging the story up was for the better, because Travis seems to be less whiny and less like a jerk…but I can’t actually confirm that yet because I’m not very far in and I’m sure he’ll do something that will make me facepalm and want to kick him out of his own story. It’s also fun to play with Lucy’s cameo because like any series I can’t exactly leave my main character…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 15

    My, my, my, it was a really strange writing session, mostly because I killed off a few characters and finished SS. One of my characters that I killed off has actually been with me since the inception of this long narrative, so 15 years ago I came up with this character, along with two others and I had to kill them off. I realised it last year when I was writing this story but I guess the knowledge of that didn’t really sink in and I was actually upset. It was a hard character to part with and I’m trying really hard to keep the lid on who it is…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 14

    Words today are hard and mostly because I had a full day at my retail job that involved a lot of actual heavy lifting and to top it off it’s a little warm. I love the warmth, I dislike having to work while it’s warm in a full uniform. Give me shorts and muscle tanks any day and I’ll be a happy lady. I used to be so good at wording when I was exhausted, in fact, my peak hours of writing used to be after Midnight and I’d do my best essays and what not when I was not sleeping. I prided myself on being a night owl…that was…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 13

    Today I made a come back, after not writing in my NaNo for four days it was glorious to have my fingers gliding over the keys once again. I can’t tell you how relieving it actually is to feel the flutter of my fingers hitting the keys and while not a lot of my words were spelled right I did manage to get in a solid writing session between folding clothes, attempting to go to the gym, washing sheets and getting to an appointment, not to mention having my cousin and his lovely girlfriend in town. I went out for dinner and it was such a wonderful night. It makes…
