I think I just finished my novel today

Well, first draft only, but still, to do this in less than three months (while having a fulltime job, a family and a life), is just astounding. It pleases me immensely. Of course, now the task of revising and rewriting… Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Hitting a magic milestone

Just clocking up a late one (as usual) and I’m about to hit a pretty magic milestone… In November, I started the National Novel Writing Month thing… then I proceeded to only get 25,000 words done in that month, so¬† not exactly a success. And yet, it was a magnificent success, really. I hadn’t written ...

On not failing NanoWriMo

I see that the month of November is over, and that I have not reached 50000 words for NanoWriMo. And I don’t care. I only reached 26000 words in fact, but that is still more words in one month than I’ve written (fiction at least) in about the last five years. So this is a ...

Getting the writing better

Getting the writing better
After thinking that I’d screwed up over the weekend, with drastically less writing for the NanoWriMo project than I’d hoped, the first two days of the week have proven both just how much time I have available on the train, and surprisingly, what a good environment for writing it is if I actually get myself ...

This really works

This really works
In basically just six days or writing, and really only five days, I have written over 11,000 words. That’s a phenomenal amount in such a short time, fit in around work and family and all. It’s all about having a new laptop finally, and using the train time like never before. Fifty thousand words doesn’t ...

Light at the end of the tunnel

It’s almost all done now. The moving house that is. This week, after going all out through to late Monday night, I’ve instead been dropping by a few times each night, picking up more, or cleaning up more. Now there’s only a very tiny amount of loose stuff left in the house, the garage is ...

Staying Positive

Yes, I’m listening to The Hold Steady quite a lot recently (hence the title). And there’s a lot of really depressing crap I could write about here, I really couldn’t be bothered to smother it all over my blog as well. I think I have to make a change again. The last change was definitely ...

Mindspace

Years ago, I used to spend a lot of time thinking and planning, and even dreaming. In a lot of ways I knew this was “cart before the horse” stuff, spending more time dreaming and not enough doing, but now I’ve had a different perspective. I think it was and is much healthier to be ...

Woeful week

Well I suppose it wasn’t that bad, but it was woeful enough. Went back to work, still didn’t feel right, as the week went on it only got worse. Eventually gave up and was able to go home at Thursday lunchtime — lost the rest of that day but then worked from home on Friday. ...

Yes! Finally! Now working with WordPress

Almost buy accident, I have suddenly got this blog where it should be, working as it should be. My blog is now officially moved from Blogger to WordPress, as I have wanted for several weeks. There will be some adjustments required still I’m sure, but it’s almost all good now. Seem what both Blogger and ...
