As I’m writing this, I’m actually in China which is my parent’s home country. (Would you want to see a recap on that later?) I’ve been sitting on this post for a while, but have decided to for once and for all actually write it. 😛 I am a 2nd-Gen immigrant, though I’m not really bilingual but my parents are. … Continue reading Writing 2nd-Gen Immigrants 101: Languages
Long time no see, am I right? To see my excuse, just glance up at the title. That’s right. Camp NaNo’s arrived, and we’re ten days into it. (I was supposed to get this post on March 29th, actually, but…) Can you believe it? It seems like only last week I was still trying to remember my MC’s … Continue reading Introducing: My Camp NaNo Project
Technically, I started Shadows back in…uh…some time last year? Wait, wait, it was November 1st, 2018. So I was doing it for NaNoWriMo, ahhh. I have no memory of that, but whatever. The important thing is, that since I have failed to make a post introducing this WIP, henceforth, today I will go ahead and uh, do that! … Continue reading Shadows//Introduction to My New WIP
Hello, people! I’ve come back from my hiatus, and am happy to say that that was probably one of the most refreshing things that I’ve ever done. I’m filled with new post ideas and very excited to write them! The one that I have today is “What Happens in a Writer’s Brain.” Let’s get on to the post! Enni: opens Google Docs … Continue reading What Happens in a Writer’s Brain
It’s the second-to-last day of Camp NaNoWriMo. Oh dear. I’ve never actually completed the full NaNoWriMo word count before – I’ve done 25,000 words and 30,000 words, but never the whole 50,000. Well, this time I am. Welp. So far, I’m at 45,787 words. That means that I have 2106.5 words to write today and tomorrow. But here’s the … Continue reading Blizzards Is a Blizzard (Meh)
Hey guys, remember this post? Some of you may, some of you might. Whether you do or do not, I highly suggest that you do not look at it. XD Why? Because a) it’s a bit cringey and b) it’s now so different that it’s kinda scary.
Lemme walk you through the changes one by one, so you don’t get confused. 😉 Let’s start with the first and foremost – very professional sounding, don’t you think? – and begin with…*drumroll* the name!
My novel: All the chapters are the same, the characters are alike, and the plot is random and unconstructed. I would totally give this up if it wasn’t for Tess – I mean, it’s hard to quit a book when your friend is one of the main characters. Nope, not happening. Well, I guess that’s what alpha-readers are for!
I was down to 17,000 words when I opened the document last night – as you can tell, very behind. Yesterday was the 20th – in order to complete my goal, I have to write 1000 words each day. *gulps* So, I caught up to 19,000 before I got too tired to write anymore and went to bed. 😛
I’m in camp. No, not the marshmallow-roasting, fireside-singing kind of camp – though that sounds really great right now – but the dreaded Camp NaNoWriMo. *gulp* We’re halfway through April, which means only 16 days to write 16,000 words? GO AWAY. I’M SCARED.
You might be thinking that I’m doing pretty well – the thing is, I’m barely scraping it by. Last night, I changed my goal to 30,000 words vs. 50,000 words – my original goal. Why? Because of MAY. Grr…(yes, the month)
Me: What should I blog today?
Mind: Well, how am I supposed to know?
Me: Well…you’re my mind.
Mind: I resign. I think I’m going to switch minds.
Me: That’s not scientifically, physically, or mentally possible.
Mind: I’m your mind. I create your thoughts. Appreciate me.
Hello! I am sitting in an airport expecting to wait for two hours and then hop on a fifteen-hour flight. Let me repeat that, FIFTEEN HOURS. So, since I brought my laptop and the airport has free wifi, *happy dance* why not blog” So, I’m bringing today a freestyle poem that I am making up as I go along. So, I’m going to rip off the “I’m Possible” quote and say that it will be imperfection. But the word itself says I’m Perfection. So original.
