aNI Day 7

So Camp Novel Writing month starts in 3 weeks -ish and what a coincidence that I am currently on day 7 of my Novel Idea workbook thing.

Unfortunately for me, however, I will not be able to get started on that until tonight, and on top of school stuff, it’s going to be tough.

Even then, if I find myself unable to complete as much of what I want my novel to be over the course of the next 24 days, I also have July to work on all of this as well.

I could also choose to work on my Novel Idea all throughout April as well – that way I can make progress without having to rush.

Wish me luck!


Thank you for reading!



aNI Day 6

aNI day 5 and 6 are still on hold, despite my saying that I would gladly work on my characters/setting pages every 2 days, I am only done Seattle and my main character – that’s it.

I say to myself – oh I’ll write for 10 minutes every night. So far not happening. Maybe tonight. Maybe not.

We shall see.

Thank you for reading tumblr!

aNI Day 6

Where day 5 stopped (temporarily) with the basics of what (or who) is going to be my main character, Day 6 takes off with settings.

I’ve decided to alternate days between setting and characters, taking 2 days to work on one of each before switching to the other.

Unfortunately for me, this means that I have to now keep track on how much time I’m choosing to spend and procrastinate on homework.

Now, learning how to organize isn’t a bad thing. It’s just a bad thing to try and do when you’re already having trouble keeping up with courses and work all at once.

For example, now is a good time for me to spend on writing. I just got home from class and have been spending at most 15 minutes trying to figure out how to start this blog.

And now that I’m writing this, it’s a good excuse for me to then open up my book and to start writing. However, deciding to spend that time writing also takes away from the fact that I have to finish watching¬†A Star is Born (1937)¬†by 5:30 this evening.

Considering that my next class is at 6:30 this evening, doing any extra writing when I should be watching this movie is a bad idea.

But all that aside, my next step is to write about where my main character currently resides (Seattle, circa…not sure yet). I have every intention of turning this into a post apocalyptic novel, so we`ll see how well it goes.

May the writing Gods be with me and I thank you, wordpress for reading. Until next time!


A Novel Idea Day 5

A Novel Idea Day 5 of 365 has been pending since the end of December.

A big shout out to Shaunta Grimes for getting this started via her website/blog thing called What is a Plot.

After a brief period of being really anxious and freaking out over whether or not I’ll have enough money for this,¬†I figured I might as well not regret it and actually try this thing out.

Basically, I try and write a novel and can get advice and things and what better way to make myself write things than write a blog about it.

A Novel Idea Day 5 has been pending since the end of December and I swear to god if I don’t get this one character partially written down by the end of the night, I am never going to get it done.

At least 20 minutes of….writing. Finishing, (I hope) what is the beginning of my main character for this novella thing that I want to write.

But that’s what this program thing is for. That’s what Shaunta is there for.

This blog is to get me going and I’ll be damned if I don’t make the most of this. If not now, then when?

Never. That’s when.

Here’s to 2017 and here’s to working to improve myself.
