persevering after nano || chocolate donuts

Thursday, August 04, 2016


There's nothing better then spending a car ride talking with your sister, (HEY YOU), about plotting and books. << Bree is seriously the person you go do if you want a plot. but you can't have her. sorry.

AND THEN going to your friend's house, (HEY YOU GUYS), and making chocolate donuts. AND THEN taking a walk. and doing boho braids. and swapping writing. and writing together (AND FINISHING UP NANO). and all sorts of cool stuff that you can do in 7 hours.

like, awesomeness. Plus, it was the last day of July (IT'S AUGUST NOW. GAH.) so I got to finish up nano there and made 30k. LIKE WHAT. IT'S OVER. *goes into corner to cry*

BUT DON'T WORRY. Julia and I decided that even after NaNo we would persevere and continue on, (since we are both only halfway). And so we have been sticking with our writing rituals each night.

Hopefully I'll get to 50-60k. like what. NOVEL LENGTH PEOPLE. *hyperventilates*

guys. the summer reading drawing is FRIDAY. *trys not to scream* wait. that's tomorrow. GAH.


 have you done a boho braid?
do you ever just spend a whole day hanging out with friends?

  1. Oh, I didn't know you had another sister! *waves to Bree* :)

    YES, persevering after NaNo is an excellent idea. I want to do that so much, but... I kind of hate my story. :P *hides* I realized I made a huge mistake in saving the idea I really loved for when I have a bit more experience... now I'm stuck with one that I never really loved in the first place. Ah, well. I hope I finish it anyway; I'm going to keep trying to write 500 words a day.

    1. hahaa, yep. She's pretty awesome. xD

      *gasps* Well, maybe you should just start the story you are saving..I mean, it's not like you can't explore it while you rewrite it and learn stuff from it. Then, later, you can rewrite it. Awesome! Julia and I have just been making sure we write every day--no matter how much we write (which has been ranging from 600-800 words a day) so far so good!

  9. I love the sound of having nightly writing rituals. I try to have specific rituals, but I accidentally fail after only three days or less. :P

    AH AND THIS NOVEL IS TURNING OUT TO BE LONG. How exciting! (and slightly terrifying. xD)

    1. It works really well--we often have to push each other to write when we don't feel like it. hahaa. Having a writing buddy for a sister works really well. :D

      YASSSS I KNOW IT'S SUPER AWESOME AND SLIGHTLY TERRIFYING. xD
