So despite the fact that – in theory – 2020 had created the perfect writing conditions for November – what with the pandemic, and enforced hermit mode, it’s actually been a struggle to get any writing done. Seeing as all my other hobbies have been temporarily cancelled due to Covid, I have nothing BUT time to write. But can I work up the motivation to try and complete NaNo in the quickest time ever? Can I heck.Continue reading “NaNoWriMo 2020: Week Three”
After I first realised
What happened to me,
I actively searched for them.
Warnings that matched my exact wound

My name is Leah, and I have a serious procrastination problem.
Okay. Okay, so, it turns out I was so worried about the dreaded Week Two blues, that I subconsiously decided to avoid it entirely. Ya know how much writing I’ve managed to get done this week? Despite the fact the pandemic has virtually cancelled all the am dram theatre commitments I’d normally have this month? So I’ve got nothing BUT time to write? One day. One. Day.Continue reading “NaNoWriMo 2020: Week Two”
I love words.
I forgot just how much
I loved words.

I wish I could be more blunt.

It’s my favourite time of year again! November has rolled around so fast, but I was obvs going to be barrelling into my fifth consecutive NaNoWriMo challenge. This time last year I was stressing about not having enough free time in the week to write after work, but somehow I managed it. That all seems depressingly laughable now, when all I’ve got is free time to write in the evenings. THANKS, MISS RONA.Continue reading “NaNoWriMo 2020”
What is NaNoWriMo I hear you ask? Oh, only the greatest annual writing event that happens every November, that I have been obsessed with since I discovered it was A Thing. November has become tranformed into National Novel Writing Month since its inception way back in 1999. The goal: write 50,000 words of a project in the space of a single month.
Sounds daunting? Not to worry – if you’re doubting whether you can actually ‘win’ NaNo, I’ve put together some helpful tips to help you find your writing groove – or even just help you to get the most you can out of NaNo.Continue reading “How to win NaNoWriMo”
Considering how much I love Brigid Kemmerer’s writing, it’s surprising it’s taken me this long to actually get around to reading her phenomenal Elementals series. Though in typical Leah fashion, I made sure to get my hands on copies of all five books – even the last two, which were near impossible to find physical copies of – and completely devoured them in the space of a month or so.Continue reading “‘Sacrifice’ Review”
