NaNoWriMo: Looking back on the past month

Update2

(aka, how not to do NaNoWriMo)

It’s been a while since I posted here. As you might have guessed, especially if you’ve been reading for more than a year, this means that NaNoWriMo went badly. The amount of time that I had to dedicate purely to writing during November meant that there was simply no time left over for a blog update.

So, to get it out of the way right now, I did win (which simply means that I reached the goal of writing 50,000 words in 30 days), but it was definitely an ungraceful win. (more…)

I am afraid of writing

I am afraid of writingI had a very intense July. On top of everything else I did I realised that the reason behind all of my procrastinating to write is not laziness. It’s fear. (more…)

A week into NaNoWriMo this year, I could see that this was going to be the hardest NaNo struggle I’ve ever had.

Things that are slightly interesting that I forgot to say

So after Wednesday’s long, rambling, text part of the post, there were still several things that I’d forgotten to say. In fact, these things were probably more important than my complaints about ineffective call centres, but they are still not very important. This is, therefore, just a general blog-housekeeping post. Let us hope that it is more effective than my real housekeeping. If you don’t believe me, have a look at the mess of homework that’s on my bed right now. (more…)


Things that you can do that are more interesting than fixing my internet

Hi! I’m back (again) and I really hope that my three weeks of internet and computer frustration are now finally over. But more on that below. As we had all of this trouble getting our internet connection fixed, I needed some way to vent my frustration at this process. So what better way than a cartoon? I hope you enjoy (and that my actual point isn’t too vague).
