// so, I may have just reached 50,000 in my #NaNoWriMo novel! (my fingers are d e a d) I’m an exhausted little writer, but a happy one nonetheless. also, look! NaNo merch! . now comes the real challenge: actually finishing the book. (and titling the thing. UGH. STUPID TITLES. -.-) . how is NaNo going for all of you? . #amwriting #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writerslife
// and just like that, it's #NaNoWriMo. o.o . (if you don't know what NaNo is, it's National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. sounds simple, right? heh.) . I am ridiculously excited for this month's insanity. it's my first time writing a superhero book, and my goal is to complete the first draft by the end of November. I'm HORRIBLE at estimating, but I think it'll be around 80,000 words long?? maybe?? it's going to be crazy and exhausting, but I'm so thankful to be joining thousands of other writers. WE GOT THIS! ...now I need to stop procrastinating on Instagram and just go write the thing 😛 . #amwriting #writerslife #nanowrimo2017 #writersofinstagram #writewritewrite
// with every novel I write I like to have a theme album that I ONLY listen to while writing (and editing) that novel. it's a way of transporting my brain into the story world with just a simple melody. . and after lots of thought, I finally picked the album for my #nanowrimo superhero novel! Icon for Hire (by Icon for Hire). they've quickly become one of my favorite bands, even though it's different from what I normally listen to. . anyone else have a theme album (or song?) for their story?
// it's been only a bit since vacationing by Lake Superior but I already miss it. writing all day + sipping coffee on the rocks by the water + sweater weather + beautiful birch trees = a gorgeous, relaxing week. 🍂 . now back to work and writing and school and editing I go. :P (and #NaNoPrep!!) I'm ready to conquer October. 😎
// I received one of these succulents as a wedding party favor, and so far it's remained alive! (though now I bet I've cursed its little existence by saying that out loud. oopsie.) 🌵
