My my England is cold, eh? I’ve been used the Florida warmth and sun for the last 2 weeks, and in that time winter seems to have landed in the UK. This should be perfect, an excuse to curl up in the warmth with my laptop and write away, but that would be a little simplistic. I’m quite sure it won’t be that simple. As you might have seen from my NaNoWriMo Announcement post, I am making a serious attempt to ‘win’ NaNoWriMo and write at least 50,000 words. I tried before, 2 years ago, when I had a complicated space heist idea/concept, but it wasn’t clear enough in my mind to begin to try and write, so I abandoned it at around 10,000 words. So, this year, I have decided to think about 2 wildly different concepts in the hope of making decisions, plotting, knowing my characters, and ultimately learning to write, and I am tracking my progress through the NaNoWriMo website and a twitter thread.

I’m not really sure it’s very secret considering it’s in the title of the post, but if you missed it: I’m doing NaNoWriMo 2018! Continue reading “NaNoWriMo 2018”
Since Emma moved in, I have made a concerted effort to be more organised. In some cases, such as the state of my room, or the organisation of the downstairs areas have taken (well, are taking) longer than other aspects of my life, but it is safe to say that since she has moved in I have been developing what resembles a routine. And that’s what we need in life, no? Whether it’s remembering to cook, or actually making my bed, I am doing my best to have habits and routines that involves healthier practices, and not perfecting couch-potatoing.

I have read a lot this month. I really feel, for once, that I have read a decent amount in one month. Considering how much time i have had on my hands, this is probably a good thing. I noticed a few friends doing wrap-up posts, so I thought the New Year is as good a time as any to start this trend off for my blog. Continue reading “January Wrap Up”
