I’m back today with another post about writing and tips and tricks you can do in order to improve your writing and improve the way you think of your writing. You can read my post where I introduce the idea and explain it here. You can also read my post on how to overcome and avoid writer’s block here. Read More
A few days ago I proposed an idea where I write a series of posts about writing in my post here. A lot of people seemed to love my ideas! I’m so excited to use what I have learned over the years (I sound like I’m old and experienced – trust me, I’m not) and what mistakes I have made and what I have learned about writing and what tips and tricks I think may help some of you!

Hello lovely people! If you’re a frequent reader on my blog and you’ve read my post simply titled ‘Changes‘ then you would know that I’ve decided to put out more original posts for y’all. One idea of mine you guys seemed to like a lot is posts about writing. Loads of us aspire to be novelists in the future – me included – and I don’t know about you but when a blog I follow puts out posts about writing I squeal with joy because I love reading them!

Hey everyone! So it’s week 3 of Camp NaNoWriMo (or, well, it was) and I’d like to update y’all on my current progress! If you missed my last posts about Camp NaNoWriMo, check out my Introduction, Week 1, and Week 2 to get all caught up!
So I’m very behind on my book at the moment. My goal was to reach 10K words by today but my current word count is 8,400. I got close but I was busy over the weekend and didn’t get a chance to write anything. I hope I’ll be able to catch up this week and get to at least 20K words (my goal is 25K) before Sunday, which is when Camp NaNo ends.
Here’s a snippet from my book for y’all to read:
“A look of familiarity brightens up her eyes that were sad only moments ago. She lifts her finger in a small gesture of a wave and I follow suit.
What was she doing here? I had never seen her here before. I was about to go over to her and possibly say something, but then who I assume to be her father glances up at her.
He then follows her gaze towards me. I turn away and push into the door, only it won’t open. I struggle and try and shoulder it open multiple times before I hear the receptionist speak in an annoyed tone.
“Use the handle, Mr. Park.”
I glance down and turn a deep scarlet, putting my hand on the handle and turning. I see the girl’s amused face as the door closes behind me.”
That was from the point of view of Junseok “John” Park, my male main character. I think I’m making their relationship move too quickly but I’m kind of just writing random scenes out and I’ll have to add in some transitional dialogue or descriptions.
I didn’t outline the plot all that much which gives me the freedom to do that and it helps me write quicker and lets me worry a lot less than I usually would following an outline.
That’s all for this update. I don’t think I’ll be able to complete my goal by the end of the month, but I’ll just try and continue writing as much as I can and see what happens.
Are you participating in Camp NaNo? If so, how’s your progress going? Let me know in the comments!
Hello everyone! I’ve been a bit inactive on this blog… and by that I mean I haven’t written posts every day like I used to and whatnot. I’m sorry about that! I’ve just been busy and then when I’m not busy I don’t feel like writing or reading anything and it’s just an endless cycle. I haven’t written anything for my book for Camp NaNoWriMo in a few days but I did want to write weekly update posts on my Camp progress so this first week’s is a bit late, but better late than never right?

Today I will be doing a different sort of post that I haven’t yet done on this blog before and that is a discussion post. I don’t know why but I’ve been straying away from doing a post like this for some time. It’s not like I’ll think others will bash me and my opinions, but I guess I’ve just been sort of unsure if I should let my opinions fly around for others to read or if I should just keep them to myself.

Hello everyone! Today I decided that I would write a post about Camp NaNoWriMo. You might be asking yourself right now what Camp NaNoWriMo is, for since it’s not as large as it’s processor, NaNoWriMo, it’s not as well-known. Well, basically, Camp NaNoWriMo is a smaller and less stress-inducing version of the regular NaNoWriMo that everyone knows.
The Sound of the Flawed
As I sit,
On this sharp pointy rock,
What if I jumped,
And fell like a deity,
Would I die?
Would I cry?
Would I scream my goodbyes?
Yet I sit,
I sit on this sharp pointy rock,
And I listen,
To the gently rolling waves,
To the wind blowing my hair,
To the birds squawking on the bay,
And I think,
Why would I give up such a beautiful thing?
Sounds and voices,
Cars and noises,
The singing of the Gods may be fine,
But the sounds of the living,
Of the breathing,
Of the flawed and mortal,
The humans we are,
Flawed and perishable,
Yet strong and immortal,
There’s nothing as rich,
As the sound of the flawed,
Of the living and the breathing,
Of the beautiful yet despicable,
Of the mortals we are,
Our many sounds,
Our many tunes,
Our everyday note,
Like a clarinet without holes,
We are all imperfect,
But we’re perfect all the same,
As a long,
Out of tune note.
So there was my poem for today, following the daily prompt ‘Sound’. I like this poem better than the last one. Let me know what you thought about it! I love to hear y’all’s input. Thank you for reading!
