Writerly Update #12 // I Fell Behind… A Lot and I’m Struggling to Catch Up Ft. Snippets + Hilarious/Stupid Typos!!!

So you know that time when you just feel so DONE with everything that you want to give up??

Yeah. That’s how I feel right now about writing.

Somehow I fell pretty behind on NaNoWriMo, and I HATE IT. Because now not only do I have to write the daily 1,667 words, but I also have to write ADDITIONAL words to catch up. I’m lazy. I don’t have time for this.

But while I went through a period of “omggggg I don’t want to write anymore I hate writing why did I do this I’m not writing anymore I’m done”, I am now back to my usual bubbly self* and ready to catch up!!!

I also made some pretty hilarious typos/mistakes so just looking at those cheered me up.

Also: You can learn more/refresh your memory about my novel HERE, and you can see my first NaNo update HERE!

(And if you’re a dumb cabbage and don’t know what NaNoWriMo is: it’s a month-long torture method challenge that takes place in November where you try to write 50K words—aka torture a novel!!)

*Ha hHAHhahahaHAA hAAh wHAT A silLy joKE mAAAyYYYyy.

Blogging Stats: A Ranty Discussion on the General View on Stats and How It’s Kind of… Wrong?? In My Opinion!

Stats are quite controversial.

Some people think that you should never look at stats, while others believe you should look at them like a few times a week, and then others believe you should cHECK EVERY SECOND AND MAKE SURE YOU’VE GAINED ONE GAIN IN THE PAST NANOSECOND.

Obviously, I’m the last type. Except I check stats every millisecond.* Or nanosecond. Whichever’s smaller.**

Last week… or some time recent… (I’M SORRY I CAN’T KEEP TRACK OF TIME) I wrote a post about why I love blogging and in it, I talked about how I love good stats! That incited some discussion in the comments, and I’m so intrigued by it*** that I decided to write a whole post on it!

Well, a whole post on the general view on blogging stats and then MY view. Because everyone knows I like to insert myself in everything because I’m just that self-centered amazing.

I KNOW YOU’RE EXCITED.

*JUST KIDDING. I’m not that obsessive. I think.
**I don’t do math okay.
***Or I’m running out of post ideas,,, but yOU DIDN’T HEAR THAT FROM ME.

9 Bookworm Stereotypes… We Don’t Always Hide Away All Day (Tho That’s Fun) Ft. Rants!! About the Patriarchy!!

There are SO many stereotypes in the world.

I’m 90% sure the cause for all hate and divide among people is because of stereotypes??? Because of knowledge people assume is true but actually isn’t??? Because of our ignorance and how we believe that we’re truly right so we don’t seek the ACTUAL truth????

Okay sorry, got a little ranty there. THE POINT IS, stereotypes exist and they SUCK. I mean sure, some of them are true. But most are not???

So today, I thought it’d be fun to talk about some stereotypes against readers. Most of them are LIESSSSS (except like, half-lies) and hopefully you haven’t thought that readers are like this. Because I’d be very disappointed in you, and so far you’ve done a great job at exceeding my expectations of sucking.

9 Reasons Why I Absolutely Love Being a Blogger (aka Me Fangirling Over How Supremely Cool Blogging Is????)

There are obviously many things I love about blogging.

Obviously??? Otherwise I wouldn’t be doing it still. Unless I find pleasure in doing things I hate, which I don’t. (WHO WOULD.)

I was feeling a little bit down about blogging the other day—not really motivated to write posts, not really motivated to read any, so I decided to write this post to help me fall in love again with blogging!!!

OKAY JUST KIDDING. The real reason I wanted to do this post is that I’ve already complained about some things I hate/am annoyed by blogging, but I am most definitely NOT a negative person* so I decided to talk about the things I love about blogging too!!

(But like. If this post helps reignite your love for blogging, THAT’S GREAT. I feel much more motivated to blog after writing this post wowowowow I’m so powerful honestly.)

*Just so you know that I hate everyone and everything and I hate myself and I think death is a really cool concept and I think mangoes are the WORST THING EVER.

Writerly Update #11 // I’m Still Alive But Struggling Without a Plot + A Change of Plans?? Ft. Snippets & Beautiful Books!

So, I’ve managed to stay alive so far??

Which is good, since it’s only been a week since the start of NaNoWriMo.

I haven’t done a Writerly Update in so long omg??? Like… two months. This one’s going to be a little ranty about NaNoWriMo and some thoughts I’ve been having about writing. It’s all over the place, like my brain right now.

(Like if I don’t make sense in this post, it’s because NaNo has squeezed my brain and made juice out of it and all my vocabulary has gone with it. Therefore I do not know how to English.)

Feel free to add me as a buddy! (I’ll add you back. And you can stalk my progress.)
