I felt like I've been feeling self-reflective especially these past few months. The author I started out to be isn't like the author I am now. As I get older and learn about different things, I feel like my ideology on writing fiction is changing. I want to get better and I want to incorporate … Continue reading When real life affects stories
No snapping. A keyboard shall suffice.
I can't believe this is going to be next month. This will be one year in a row since lockdown happened not long before the first session in April. This will be something I will do when that happens. I won't say what I'll write, but I will say it will involve the Hollanduscosm series. … Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo is around the corner
Sorry for not blogging as much on this page. I've been so inconsistent here, it's not even funny. I hope you're doing okay though.2020 has been such a rough year for so many people in this world. I probably wasn't the only one who had moments of depression and frustration this year after lockdown happened. … Continue reading Thoughts on the blog on New Year’s Eve
I got off to an okay start with Camp NaNoWriMo even though I don't have a big project.

I don't have to rely on an outline for the story and I just go where the story takes me. Having all these tiny chapters add up to a much larger … Continue reading 30 Day Original Author Challenge: Day 12
This felt great. I haven't done Camp NaNoWriMo since 2017, but I got back at it this month and completed the challenge. Camp NaNoWriMo is a wonderful off-season contest for NaNoWriMo since the word count goals are more flexible and I can knock out other books during this season. This also happens in July which … Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo 2019 winner
This is a delayed post due to crazy busy moments and the power going out multiple times during a blizzard last night, but I have some belated, yet extraordinary news. I completed the NaNoWriMo challenge this year! HOORAY! For those who don't know about NaNoWriMo, it's short for National Novel Writing Month. It's a challenge … Continue reading I beat NaNoWriMo 2018!

I'll be participating in this event for the July session. I'll be talking about the NaNoWriMo organization, how these programs work, my previous experience … Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo Event! 7/1/17 @ The Gail Borden Library (South Elgin Branch!)
