Yeah, I’ve been neglecting this blog again.
Between school, work (those are two words now), and other writing-but-not-blog-related hobbies, I’ve had little time to devote to this posting things. Unfortunately, hobby-writing has taken a back burner for me these last few months.
But as long as I’m here and actually writing something, I thought I’d drop a few status updates:
1) Camp NaNoWriMo
Although I feared I wouldn’t be able to make it this year, Camp NaNoWriMo is a go! I’ve organized an awesome cabin, and in April, I’ll be co-writing a story with my friend Becky, author of The Story of ABBA for Young Readers. It involves a fandom she knows way more about than I do, but there’s also mystery, humor, and references to people from Doctor Who, so I should be able to work within those parameters. 😀
Also, Becky’s been showing me some techniques for how to plan a story in advance in an organized fashion. Believe it or not, I have a lot to learn!
2: Flora Dennis and the Island of Two Eyes
I’ve written half a chapter this month … and I should ideally finish the other half before the month ends. Despite how unmotivated a writer I’ve been recently, there’s no denying how much fun this project is! (You can read what I have written so far here.)
3) Teens Can Write, Too!
I’m participating in this month’s TCWT blog chain, like I did last month, and I’m making the finishing touches to a post that’s due on the 20th of March. Stay tuned…. 🙂
