I wanted to get together a list of beautiful things that I love and hope that you will find them just as beautiful. This list captures a lot of things that I use, things thare neat and things that are just plain useful to my life. It’s all about getting up and close with me and this is an insight into the things I love and why. I’m always updating this, so check back regularly to updates.
When I sit down to write, I use Scrivener. It’s one of the most amazing writing programs that have been specifically designed with writer’s in mind. It is the easiest and cleanest ways to map out your novel or project (I’ve even used it to do an essay, it’s THAT good). The best part about is being able to divide your scenes within a chapter, but it doesn’t stop there. You can also add mind-maps using Scapple and put in descriptions about characters and locations. It’s seriously the best place to go with anything. It’s available on Mac and Windows. I’m a proud affiliate of the program often have promo codes to save you on money.

NaNoWrimo and Camp NaNoWriMo
NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo have been game changers for me. Standing for National Novel Writing Month is all about writing a 50,000 words novel in 30 days. I dawdled forever joining up but when I did, I wasn’t sorry. I’ve used NaNoWriMo as a starting point for most of my drafts. It’s a reall good kick in the pants and I love to base a lot of my coaching around the tricks I learened while aiming to get 50,000 words. I’ve managed to do it every year for 11 years and my biggest achievement is hitting 50k in 3.5 days. But that’s me, the beauty of it doing NaNoWriMo is that you have the ability to get a writing practice on track. It helps build that confidence in yourself. They also have lots of great sponsors with some beautiful offers. It’s definitely something that has helped me get to my goals and helps me still kick them!
I’m doing this in list form because I realised just how extensive this is and I’m working on getting reviews up on the blog at the moment. But each of these decks are so beautiful and all can be used in conjuction with one another.
