Spring vibes

We’re a little over halfway through May and spring seems to have descended on London properly this time, and I’m here for it! As the outside world still isn’t quite open to us, I decided to bring spring inside by planting a few little seeds of meadow flowers and some herbs, and I check on them every ten minutes to see if they’ve grown. So far nothing.

My goal for May grew pretty big though: my plan was to finish the first draft of my WIP and take part in the #Mayauthorwipchallenge on Instagram, but as I kind of knew, doing both was a little too much. The Maychallenge has not gone well, but so far (let’s hope I don’t jinx it) drafting has.

Yesterday I hit the magical number of 100 000, and I’m still riding the happy wave. There’s still some more to do before I can wrap up, but I have begun to dream of actually getting to edit this thing. Whether I hit my goal in May or not, the end is in sight – woop!

Hope you’re all staying safe and well! X

NaNoWriMo 2019

Will this be the year?


Earlier this summer I started thinking NaNoWriMo could be a fabulous way kick myself in the butt and get lots of words on a page, but…you need a solid idea first.

I’ve worked on a few ideas now, and tried to do some serious writing prep – I’ve even gone so far as to look for write-ins with actual people to talk to. Crazy, I know.

But life happens, and I’m not nearly as prepared as I wanted to be…still, it’s not a challenge if it’s easy, right?!

The one thing to do now is to actually set up a profile, and then we’re off. Let’s do it! X
