Another Pep Talk [for Writers]

Hello writer. Hello author. Hello scribe. Today is Friday, 13th. Let me ask you, are you superstitious? I am. Not about Friday, 13th, but about Thursday, 12th. Yesterday, I wasn't aware that it was Thursday, 12th, but today I can say: oh, that's why. Yeah. Because I couldn't get it quite right yesterday. The writing... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo – Update [5]

I'd like to have a button that reads 'I failed NaNoWriMo 2014.' You see, I would like to acknowledge that I participated but didn't win. I don't think that failing is the end of the world, for one, I'm not THAT ambitious. And for another, I learned enough by not winning that I don't feel... Continue Reading →

Done [in November]

I'm aware that November isn't quite over yet but I'm trying to put my stories in order, to see what I've done, what I'm going to do next month and next year. And since I have pretty much given up on NaNoWriMo (I'm gonna write more about that on Sunday), this is a good moment... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo – Update [4]

Let's talk about life a little today - life that is put on hold during NaNo, maybe, or just life in general. I failed. I failed yesterday because this update is already a day too late, and I failed this week because I haven't written a single word for NaNo. This is part of NaNoWriMo,... Continue Reading →

Pep Talk [for Writers]

[This kinda relates to NaNoWriMo - but also doesn't, because it's for every writer out there, not just those participating in NaNoWriMo - if you're a writer, this is for you.] You are a writer. Or you are an author. Or maybe, like me, you like to think of yourself as a scribe. No matter... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo – Update [3]

Another NaNo-week. What I find really interesting at this point is that my outlook on the whole endeavor changes. First few days, I was mostly excited and wrote to write. First full week was more thoughtful but mostly fun and games. And now... I feel that it's time to think more about the story, to... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo – Update [2]

A whole week of NaNo - or rather, writing. I'm no stranger to writing every day, but as with reading books for classes at university, it's always a little more difficult if you 'have to.' I don't know if others feel like that, I do. But it was a good week, not great, not sensational,... Continue Reading →

I’m Writing [2]

Welcome to another installment of 'I'm writing,' though maybe you're already well-informed on my projects - or so you think. There is always something I'm not sharing, you know, I'm secretive that way. So, let's have a look at my current projects - and rejects. NaNoWriMo: Carpe Tempus - now, I have talked about this...

NaNoWriMo – Update [1]

It has begun. Yesterday at midnight, I started working the keys. This sounds more prolific than I've actually been. For once, the hour between midnight and one is not my most creative and, for another, I wasn't alone and undisturbed, and actually a little pissed about it. So, 180 words are all I have to...

NaNoWriMo – Almost There

On Saturday the madness begins. I'm not sure how much of madness it will really be for me because... well, I'm not easily excitable and I won't pull any weird stunts, I won't overdo it. In short: I'm German, and thus not easily moved into a group mentality. You may scoff, but I think historically... Continue Reading →
