I finally have 50 followers on this baby blog of mine. This is the longest I’ve been able to go in maintaining a blog since high school, which was only two or three months. I’m very thankful for my followers. I get to voice out things to a little bit of the world’s population and someone will always come round to reading it.
My apologies for not posting anything substantial lately. I will get around to my book review of The Casual Vacancy, I promise. I’m looking for the right words to say after encountering a story like that one. It was my first time reading and finishing something adult-based or with mostly adult themes. Even though I’m 21, I’m still a complete sucker for fantasy or anything with a good adventure-based plot. I always believe you’re never too old for fiction.
As I am writing this post, I am at 17,194 words on my NaNoWriMo entry. Like I said before, this is my first time and I’m a little shaky on things. From my last post, I told everyone I was behind on things. I was able to catch up a lot, but then now, I feel a little behind today. According to the very informative Stats page, I need to achieve a word count of 18,333 words before midnight. I feel pressured to do so and I feel bad that I’m only at 17,194 words (but I keep telling myself I shouldn’t feel that way). I end up giving myself a failed pep talk or actually writing a whole lot. This time, I hope it’s the latter, even with less than 5 hours until midnight.
I will come up with writing advice soon. I’ve been reading books that improve writing skills and there are some handy tips to make your stories smoother. I will share them soon (or when I remember to do that).
Good luck writers!
Love what you do.
