I've decided to try my hand at Camp Nanowrimo again this year. I tried last year but just didn't feel motivated enough; after doing Nanowrimo in 2015 I lost a lot of steam and had a lot on my plate in the early half of 2016.

I think this year …

Some refinements to process

With NanoWriMo done and dusted for 2015, it's a good time to refine some of my writing processes. I've been in a state of flux recently. On the desktop I'm torn between Mac and Linux while on mobile I use both Android (my phone) and iOS (my tablet). I've been …

NaNoWriMo One Week Update

Posted on Sat 08 November 2014 in News • Tagged with nanowrimo, writing, historical fiction, fantasy • 2 min read

It's a week into NaNoWriMo and I've written just over 30 thousand words. That's insane; I don't think I've written at that sort of rate since I was a teenager. It's taught me two things: firstly, despite being anal about formal planning I am more productive when I don't and …

Nanowrimo 2014
