So as you have probably guessed, i like to call myself an Author. After much deliberation with my inner critic, i came to the conclusion that i should actually start sharing my work so that people actually believed me.
This is where you will find all of my ramblings and writing mumbo jumbo. I tend to write about my journey, finishing my debut novel (if i ever get there) and the odd short story i throw out to the masses.
If you are at a loss as what to do this fine evening, why not stop by my Facebook and Twitter pages and say hi!
I’d love to hear from all like minded peeps, maybe we can swap war stories 🙂

Today, my brain does not want to function at the same high level it did yesterday.
Yesterday, i managed to smash out over 3000 words which is pretty good for me but today, I’m seriously struggling to get that sort of momentum going again. So, because my mind was finding it so difficult to be creative, I decided to reread all that I have written so far to see if I could edit or tweek some bits.
Funnily enough, I have managed to spot some of my own plot holes and come up with a strategic plan to fix them. I have corrected any grammer or spelling mistakes and I have even found the need for a few new chapters in between pre-existing ones which should be pretty easy to write considering they are in the middle of things. This should tie it all together a bit better and give the characters and story more depth. It may even make it feel fuller and expand the world in which they live.
So the moral of this story is, even if you’re finding it difficult to write new material each day, maybe re-evaluate the material you have already written. You never know, you might find a few things that need fixings and it all contributes to the final word count and that elusive first completed draft.
Never a wasted day 🙂
Today I seem to be on a roll or sorts. I have managed to smash out 1500+ words and it is only 2pm. If only I could sustain this sort of momentum for the next week weeks, I could have the first draft finished by the end of the month 🙂
I’m finding that the more I write, the more the story plays out in my minds eye just begging to be recorded on paper. My word count is slowly creeping up and its not feeling like a chore. I know where I want to go with my story, its only a matter of time before I get there.
Kudos to me lol
Wishing you all the best of luck with your own writing projects. May this be a productive week for all!
When your working hard!
Recently I have been so caught up with work and thing of such nature, I have hardly had a chance to write anything. I completely failed at NaNoWriMo, making it only to 21k words and I havent really touched my novel at all.
In the last few days though I have picked it back up and I feel slightly refreshed about it. I am coming back into it with fresh eyes and the desire to power through again so hopefully I will be able to start pumping out some more words.
I have also started reading again, this is one of my main key motivators when it comes to writing as it gets me in the mindset for how my novel should work. Although i absolutely love reading, I see it as research also.
So lets see what the month of June brings and hopefully I will be able to complete my 50k work goal in July’s NaNoWriMo.
Wish me luck 🙂
