My Declaration of Writing Incompetence.


This is it, this is the moment where I make a conscious effort to finish my goddamn novel. I declare complete writing incompetence.

Writing Update : NaNoWriMo Draft

NaNoWriMo, writing

I have been putting writing this post off for so long in the vain hope that I would get my act together and start writing my NaNoWriMo draft. Well, I haven’t. December was a write off in my mind, I did blogmas on here and that took the majority of my time and energy, I […]

My Last NaNoWriMo Update

First NaNoWriMo Update

NaNoWriMo, writing

My novel writing (if you can call it that) | Writing


I’m back to writing. It’s not going to fast but it’s trundling along. I’m trying a new approach. I’ve done NaNoWriMo the past couple of years, won once and wrote a decent amount the other and then tried to write from that but it seems to be the way I write needs more planning than […]
