NaNoWriMo Preparation!

NaNoWriMo Preparation!

Heyo Bookaholics! NaNoWriMo is nearly upon us. As promised on my Twitter (@thebookishbree), in lieu of posting a review today I have chosen to let you all in on my now not-so-secret NaNoWriMo Project! If you do not know what NaNoWriMo is, I've snatched a description off of Wikipedia which sums up the…


Hey Ho Bookaholics!

What is this!? Two posts in one week??? I think I’m finally starting to get my sh*t together, and the sad thing is I have so many brilliant ideas for posts on this blog written in a cute pen in a cute pink notebook, that I stupidly keep procrastinating.

But enough of that! Now I have a cool new phone, big enough to type up blog posts and make posts on the go I wont have to make excuses about not having my computer on me to post.

Now that that little rant is over with, I want to tell you all about how my NaNoWriMo writing month went.

It went….. okay.

So I went into this with an already started story that I was origionally writing and I felt like I needed a reason for myself to put more effort into it.

The book started with around 1,500 words, and over the course of the first week, which consisted of studying for Uni exams, procrastinating said studying, and many mental breakdowns, I managed to raise my total word count to 3,257 words. I made my personal goal 15,000 words because there was no way I was going to reach 50,000 words like most people.

It all went downhill from there.

Hello Bookaholics!

Today’s post is going to be more chill (indicated by the smaller headding), and a little bit more on the personal side of things, deviating from my usualy book reaviews and fun.

For the better part of this month – that is from the 10th through to the 30th – I participated in NaNoWriMo, the yearly writing competition held very November, with preparations starting as early as August! This competition encourages young people like myself to write a novel in the month of November and share their progress, tips, and story with their friends and the wider community.

I decided to join the NaNoWriMo writing competition because I finished exams early November and I have been wanting to write a book but I really kept losing motivation and ideas. I belived that NaNoWriMo would  help me get on track with my writing and also set my on my path to publishing my very first novel.
