#CampNaNoWriMo : I did It!

I’m a NaNo Winner!


Hi, there!

The Girl Who Broke The Rules (Working Title) – Update

I’m so pleased to say that I did it. I wrote 50,000 words for #CampNaNoWriMo during July and July is not even over yet!

Here’s evidence of today’s win:


Does the Happy Dance

I’m so pleased with myself I’ve danced a little jig, thrown confetti all over the place and haven’t stopped grinning since, but the hard work doesn’t stop here.  I need 20-30k more words for a start, which I’m trying not to think too hard about (otherwise I might just run off screaming in the wrong direction and never come back!) lol

Despite my NaNo mammoth win, I cant take all the credit. I must give special thank you hugs to my two other camp members who were (and still are) really supportive and kept me going throughout; authors Devon Layne and Amy J Romine. We really work well together offering encouragement and plenty of rah-rahs along the way.  Thank you, peeps, you’re the best!


So, what’s next?

I’ve set myself a goal to work on producing a complete first draft of about 70/80 k by the end of August. It’s a tough goal, and I’m not going to sweat about it too much, I just want to take one day at a time and do my very best.

So, that’s just what I’ll do.

Plus, I’m also (albeit slowly) working on a couple more projects in the background. More about those, soon.

Until next time, night-night! Sleep tight. Mind the bed bugs don’t…



P.S. Pictures are from the NaNoWriMo and CampNaNoWriMo websites. (Link goes to my profile).



This resonates, so much with me!

Here’s the thing about being human: you are given a lot of crutches in life, but they are double edged swords. They make you feel better for a while, but you’ve got to give up your power…
Put the blame on someone else or something else…

Fate, some god, the economy, other people, society, or your parents…

Yeah…they make you feel better…

It is easy to call talented those who worked harder than you in order to be better than you…

It is easy to sit on your couch and wait for your soulmate to find you… Because that’s what all the fairytales told you it’s going to happen.

It’s easy to put the blame somewhere else, and forever give up on the responsibility to change yourself for the better…

But you know what’s not easy?

To realize that you’re your own master…

The captain of your fate.

The one…
