As NaNoWriMo and November Draws to a Close

Between NaNoWriMo and double deadlines, November simply flew by and in the blink of an eye, it seems, we’re barreling towards Christmas and New Year. Those that follow me on Instagram (less so on Twitter) would have seen me spending a lot of time this past weekend crocheting. A lot of time, and that my NaNo word count did not budge. The reason for this is that I needed to take time to regroup and make notes and see where rewrites of scenes are already needed. My health also hasn’t been 100% over the past week and my brain found it a lot easier to focus on a pattern I can do in my sleep than writing epic epicness (I was finishing a mermaid tail blanket).


However, the creation of Trebles On My Mind did take place last week.


This week I’m planning to work on Charms of Life and Death as well as a WIP short story titled “The Rusted Key” at the moment. Blogging should go back to normal as from next week as well.
