NaNoWriMo Update: I Got Horribly Behind (as in, 15K Words Behind) But I’m Catching Up and Having Fun!! Kind of!!

So… I’m kind of failing NaNoWriMo?

I’ve honestly never been as far behind as I am, but oddly enough, I’m not panicking? Like, you would think, and I would think, I’d be freaking out that I’m over 10K behind schedule. But I feel like I’ve just kind of accepted it and that also should freak me out but doesn’t.

Anyways! Today I’ll be talking about how I’m a failure how NaNoWriMo is going for me so far!! Mainly involves just me crying and dying, but it’s cool.

Also, if you didn’t get a chance to get to read anything about the WIP I’m working on, check out this post right here!

Writerly Update (My First in Forever??): Introducing My WIP and Characters!! Featuring Snippets! Aesthetics! A Mess!!

I am very nervous today because I’m… introducing my WIP???

Some people have actually been asking me if I’ve done an introductory post to it yet (since I’ve mentioned my WIP a couple of times now) so uh here you go? I’m honestly really flattered you want to know about my WIP!!

But also why. It’s a mess.

Anyways, I haven’t done a Writerly Update™ in so long and frankly it’s because I just don’t write as much as I used to, but NaNoWriMo is happening next month, a WIP has been in the works for months now, and I’m finally ready to share my WIP with you all! So here it is and I hope it sounds vaguely interesting at least??

The Rising Author Tag // Talking About My Writing (?!), A Few Snippets (Ew), and a Short Intro to My WIP’s Main Character

In a surprising turn of events, I am doing a tag, and even more surprising: IT’S ABOUT WRITING.

Talking about my WIP??? Sharing (bad) snippets??? More likely than you think!!!

But seriously, I’m a bit nervous to be doing this even though no one will read this or care for… no reason? I mean, I’ve talked about my writing in the past but recently things havne’t been going so well soooo.

And I’ve also gotten very personal with my writing! My current WIP’s MC (WHICH YOU’LL GET A SHORT DESCRIPTION OF WOW) is really similar to me* and I have a problem with sharing things about me. But I will do it because she’s really cool, cooler than I’ll ever be.

So here’s a long post about random things concerning my writing!!

*Except she’s extroverted and NO.

Writerly Update #13 // I Won NaNo, Finished My First WIP Ever (!!!) at 53.6K Words + Snippets & Future Plans (& Poems!)

I !! FINISHED !! MY !! FIRST !! WIP !! EVER !!!!

You probably can’t tell that I’m excited, but I’M EXCITED. Me?? Actually committing to something and finishing it??? NEARLY UNHEARD OF????

I’m just SO SO proud of myself for finally finishing a novel. It’s not good, definitely not. But the important thing is that I COMPLETED it and actually proved to myself that I could do it!!!

Me? Dead? Right now? No.*

*This is a lie.

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.
