Yes, you read that right!! I’m taking part in NaNoWriMo this year! This is very exciting for me because although I’ve participated in two Camp NaNoWriMo’s, I’ve never taken part in the NaNoWriMo. Read More
Lately I have been posting a lot of blog posts regarding my current writing project and Camp NaNoWriMo, so if you’re not interested in those types of posts unfollow me now.
(Please don’t I love you guys!)
and I might be a bit desperate for friends, but aren’t we all
I was reading a post by the queen of blogging herself Paper Fury about this meme that she has (that I’ve never even heard of before! Apparently I’ve been living under a rock) and it sounded right up my alley so I decided that I’d do it myself.
And if Cait actually reads this post I will die. I’m not even joking Read More
It’s been nearly a month since my last Writing Prophecies post and I apologize endlessly about that you guys! I just think these posts are the most critical of me to write because some (if not all) of y’all read these posts to take my advice on writing, which is just like whoa. Read More
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
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!
