Tea and Writing

Standard

I have recently become obsessed with tea! Like, incredibly obsessed.
I finally got over this cold and it is beautiful day out in the city! So I’ve come to a new (for me) cafe which just so happens to have a massive selection of tea! I’m in heaven.

Here’s my book for the day (I’m plotting!) and Berry Black tea!

Hope everyone’s having a wonderful Wednesday! Any other tea fanatics out there?

Cheers!

Writing and Reading and Plotting

Standard

I am still following The Plot Whisperer and trying to plot out my NaNo piece before the rewrite. However, I am stuck. I have not printed off my work to read. Why? Because I’m scared! So I’m a few days behind on PlotWriMo due to this fear. I plan on sucking it up this weekend and reading it. But still…nervous!

In the meantime I have started a new story. (Stephen King and The Plot Whisperer both agree on starting a new project before going into rewrite of one you just finished). So with the blessing of a few Masters, I dove into one. And then I got a nesty case of insomnia the other night and started a completely different one! I know, I know, I’m weird. But I am more excited about this new story then the one I had started at the beginning of this month. So I’m putting that one on the back burner and delving into this one! *fingers crossed it’s as good as I hope it’ll be*

Also, I finally started reading The Raven Boys!! Love it so far! Check back for a book review of it soon!

Cheers!

December is for Plotting

Standard

I have decided to utilize December as my plotting month, before any editing or rewrite. I found The Plot Whisperer through Twitter (thanks for that!) and am on Day Six. 

I’ve never tired to plot before. I only know the very basics to plotting in general. I’m more a write-as-you-feel person. So, this should be a great learning experience! And hopefully it will really be helpful come January when I take a deep breath and start that 2nd draft!

If you’d like to join in for PlotWriMo (whether or not you did NaNo), I encourage you to give it a try with me!

First time NaNo-ing.

Standard

So it seems to be November 30th. That means that my first ever NaNoWriMo is ending as off midnight tonight.

Well, I went ahead and submitted my work…and I WON!!!

It feels great-amazing-wonderful-exciting-unbelievable-didImentionwonderful!!! I honestly didn’t think I could do it, even when I first signed up at the end of October. I was even behind by about 10,000 words for the good majority of the month. But somewhere along the way I hit my stride. I couldn’t stop at 2,000 words, I had to keep going until the scene (or scenes) in my head were completed written down. That, my friend, was the best feeling I have ever encountered.

Now. Onto editing?
