Another successful Camp!

YAY! Last day of camp and I made it!     60,000 words! Woo hoo! It was a struggle, this time but I'm here at the end of it! YAY! The story is so jumbled and confused and all over the place. I think the basic idea is good, but I suspect if I work … Continue reading Another successful Camp!

The Unfinished Journals of Elizabeth D – read-a-long #3

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Nichole Bernier does such a great job of digging into the fears we all have, of showing the fears and other emotions that affect how we act/react in daily life. Overall I think the message of this book is one of how similar we all really are underneath. We … Continue reading The Unfinished Journals of Elizabeth D – read-a-long #3

Camp Update

I realised that I have not updated you all on my progress in Camp Nano this month! Sadly, progress has slowed. I wrote the final scene of my novel at around 30k, and writing the remaining 60k goal I set for myself has been an uphill battle. So far I'm still on track, and I … Continue reading Camp Update

Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith – review

I have had amazing luck winning books from Allen & Unwin's Facebook page! (https://www.facebook.com/AllenandUnwinBooks) This month it was Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith. Now, to be completely honest - I thought it was a book about vampires. My reason for this is that part of the prize was a movie ticket to see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (haven't … Continue reading Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith – review

Camp Nano! 4 days in

I love Camping. The fire, the fresh air, the lack of stuff separating me from the natural world. There's a freedom to it, I think. Though I don't think I could live that way permanently - through storms and rains and wind. No electricity - no laptop - no internet. Camp Nano is the next … Continue reading Camp Nano! 4 days in
