A Little Update

So I know I’m horrible at updating blogs and I also always say that I am going to get better at posting more…..but I think that jinks me! So I am not going to do it today! (Or have I already jinxed myself by mentioning the jinx in the first place??)

So as some of you know, I am taking the majority of my classes online this semester. This has turned out to be a little of a challenge with the enormous amount of reading you have to do (which I am actually procrastinating on an essay just to write this blog. But who doesn’t procrastinate right?) Between classes, Sigma Alpha, work, and church I am amazed to say that it is finally OCTOBER!!! It’s time for ghosts and ghouls, candy and fun!!!! Can you tell that this is one of my most favorite times of the year? I am especially excited about a Halloween carnival that my church is putting on for the Domestic Violence Shelter in town, which I am of course helping to decorate!

But another reason that I am excited that October is here, is it is time to start planning for NaNoWriMo!! As I’ve said before I was starting to write a novel, but that has kind of hit a wall. So, instead I have decided to do NaNoWriMo this year and hopefully get some of these ideas that I have been itching to get down on paper out! Wish me luck!

Last but not least! Since it is October that means Fall Break! Which is finally here for us poor college students but sadly this Fall Break is going to be spent studying in preparation to get all my homework done before next weekend! I’m trying to get a head of the ball so that I can relax when the college group goes on a Fall Retreat to Christmont which is a camp type retreat in North Carolina! It’s going to be gorgeous and it’ll be good to get away for a while.
Now that I have sufficiently procrastinated on my essay which is now due is 3 hrs I should probably go write a little.

I hope everyone is stopping to smell the roses every now and then!

How to nail Nanowrimo – post at Writers & Artists

NaNoWriMo is on it’s way! I can’t believe it’s already that time of year again, better start planning!

Nail Your Novel

nano1nailnanowaNearly November! I’m at Writers & Artists today with a preparation regime for November’s big writing event, National Novel-Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).

It’s ultra-streamlined to suit all writing approaches. If you like to create a detailed synopsis, my tips will get you going. If you want only the barest essentials, they’ll guide you while giving you room to explore and express. And if you’re still undecided or wonder if NaNoWriMo is even possible, hopefully they’ll persuade you to take the plunge.

Step this way…
