Soon November

And in November! You know what happens then, don’t you? Yes! Time for NaNoWriMo! I said to myself after my two Camp-WriMo this summer, that I for sure wouldn’t participate in the “real” WriMo in November. Too many words to reach for. 50 000. It was stressful enough to reach my self-set goal of 24… Read More Soon November

Is this how it is?

After finishing CampWriMo I gave myself two days off from writing. That was a week ago. And yes! You understand me right! I haven’t even opened my manuscript yet! Hardly written anything else either. I knew it was a bit too high pressure on me, the number of words I had chosen and that I… Read More Is this how it is?

Soon there

I didn’t make it today. Couldn’t write all of the nearly 1700 words that were left. Maybe I had if it hadn’t started burning on one of the balconies here. Such an exciting life… BUT!

I have moved a couple of scenes to other places, and also moved and changed within paragraphs and sentences. As a… Read More Oooops!

At the end of the day

A very pleasant feeling filled me this evening when I finished writing the scene that was due for today. Not having to invent something only to score more words. Just writing until the end of the scene – and then, nothing more. Five hundred and twenty words – that’s all right.

I confess

I lowered my goal on CampWriMo yesterday. From 31 000 to 30 000, and then – later the same day – to 28 000. Why? Not because I thought I wouldn’t make it. I would, per se. But because I added a lot of words just to reach the daily amount of words. I became… Read More I confess

A win-win?

So now my daughter and grandson, and her friend are gone. Two days passed quickly by but were very nice. Tiring as well, won’t deny that. Four people in a one-room-flat, also sleeping at nights, and I’m not used to having anyone else sleeping here. But, of course, also a lot of joy having them… Read More A win-win?
