It's the end of October. In the writing community, this signals the approach of NaNoWriMo, which means most writers are freaking out online, trying to prepare for writing 50,000 words in 30 days. Crazy, right?
Hello again, lovely people! It's been ages since I last updated my site and blog. You might have seen me write about this on social media but if you haven't, I have some pretty big news: we've had another baby!
Or a planner's attempt to get back on track with writing. Recently, I've been having really slow writing days. My current work in progress (its working title is Yours to Love but that will probably change) is dragging along like molasses. And I'm fairly certain my main problem is that I don't know where exactly I'm going with the plot.
July 2016 is the first time I'm participating in CampNaNoWriMo. If you're unfamiliar with the event, it's a month-long event organized twice a year (in April and in July) where people set a writing goal they want to achieve, enter virtual cabins (like at real camp), and cheer each other on while writing.
Hi! My name is Zoe and I write adult contemporary romance.
This is my first #PitchWars attempt and I'm very excited about the entire event. I found out about it late and am only now scrambling to catch up but I've already seen that the community of writers (both mentors and mentees) is pretty damn amazing.
As of today, I have been writing every day for 123 days (that's every day since March 13, 2016). I have a small minimal daily goal of 150 words but I write at least 500 words on average.
I also have a day job, am working on my PhD, have one toddler and another baby due in late summer this year. My husbands likes to see me sometimes and I swear we only eat takeaway once a month. Maybe twice. Tops.
I am so glad you decided to stop by my blog. This is the first post, so obviously I am here to say hello and welcome - I hope you enjoy my site and that you'll check out my book.
