3 Writing Resolutions for 2018

Saturday, December 30, 2017

It is the time of year again where everyone is making resolutions about how they wish to change their life for the new year. I’m all about the “New Year, New Me,” but I’m one of many people who have issues keeping their resolutions. I’m hoping if I make a public declaration of my writing resolutions, I will chose to keep them out of fear of embarrassment. Without further ado, I present my three writing resolutions for 2018.

Why I Failed NaNoWrimo 2017

Saturday, December 16, 2017

I failed NaNoWrimo 2017 on my first try. Yes, you read that right.

In case you are unfamiliar with NaNoWrimo, the goal is to write a novel of 50,000 words over the month of November. Currently my project “Alyssa’s Nightmare” has around 1,000 words written.

I know what you’re thinking. Wow Shelby that’s really under the mark. Trust me, I know, and I’ve beaten myself up over it a million times over the past month and a half. Since I’m trying to avoid the never ending cycle of calling myself a bad writer (it’s not good for my confidence), I’ve decided to reflect on exactly why I failed NaNoWrimo this year.

The sad truth is I thought I was 100% prepared.
