Are you a complete beginner when it comes to planning novels? Perhaps you’re doing what I did in my first year of National Novel Writing Month: frantically reading blog posts, hoping someone will have the secret to succeeding this month. While I did write a guide on how I wrote 50,000 words in less than […]
It’s been a while since I’ve talked about my love for writing on this blog, hasn’t it? It was one of the main reasons I started this blog in the first place, something I’ve only really mentioned once in a blog post you can read here. For a little bit of backstory, I started writing […]

I’m even more surprised by this because, as I did last year, I fell into the second week slump that every NaNo-er, I’m sure, can relate to, where putting words onto the screen in front of me was painful.
I think I should start by explaining what NaNoWriMo is, for those of you who aren’t aware. In short, it is an international competition where writers from all over the world come together and attempt to write 50,000 words throughout the month of November.
Believe it or not, the decision to sit down and write a blog wasn’t something that happened overnight. It wasn’t something I took a few nights to prepare, either. In reality, it was something which took several years of deliberation before it got to the physical form you’re reading now.
