I have been advised to take a break from work as I get my head together. That means I have stopped working towards my goal with National Novel Writing Month’s goal tracker. I am quite sad about that, but I think it’s for the best right now, as I seem to be steering in the wrong direction with Eleanor. I need to step away, then come back to it with fresh eyes.
This week has been so difficult, mentally. I really don’t want to go into details, but it’s regarding what I mentioned in my last blog post. I don’t even want to tread there lightly as it’s been such an emotional drain. And, I’m not sure where to start as my mind is a mess right … Continue reading Moving along

It’s been a wonderful distraction from Saga of the Sinner, which is quite a demanding project. That’s not to say that Wings of Malice … Continue reading Productive procrastination
So, I finished National Novel Writing Month last week, and claimed my win for Saga of the Sinner. I hit my goal of 60,000 words, but was too worn out to keep up the daily goals until the 30th. To be completely honest, I’ve been severely depressed these last couple of weeks and despite having crossed … Continue reading NaNo’s over. Now what?
Last night, I hit the target of 50,000 words for National Novel Writing Month! There is still a week to go, so I will keep writing and aim to hit another 10k words by the end of November. Thought I’d just check in and give you guys an update 🙂 So happy that Saga of … Continue reading Saga of the Sinner – 50,000 words!
