I WON NANOWRIMO 2015!


I did it! I got 50k! I AM A CHAMPION! *victorious dancing*

That's right, at about 5pm on Sunday 22nd November (I haven't had time to post about it until now because school sucks) I hit 50 thousand words on my current novel, meaning that I won NaNoWriMo nine days early! I am extremely excited about this, especially since it was my first time participating, so of course I had to write a post to tell you guys all about it...

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: FAVOURITE HUNGER GAMES MOMENTS

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY IS A WEEKLY MEME CREATED BY LAINEY, AND YOU CAN FIND ALL OF THE INFORMATION IN THE GOODREADS GROUP

Hi everyone,

Its top 5 Wednesday! I haven't done one of these in a while due to NaNoWriMo taking over every aspect of my life, but this week's topic is so special that I couldn't miss out on it.

If you haven't been living under a rock for the past few months, you'll know that Mockingjay Part 2 comes out TOMORROW (in the UK, anyway). If you know anything about me, you'll know that I'm ridiculously excited/nervous to see it. To celebrate the occasion, this weeks Top 5 Wednesday topic is TOP 5 MOMENTS FROM 'THE HUNGER GAMES' SERIES.

As a huge, long-term Hunger Games fan (more on that in a post I'll have up in a couple of days) this was REALLY hard for me, but I managed to shorten my giant list of favourite moments down to just six (I couldn't get five, it was impossible). These moments have been taken from the books, but I've included movie clips just so that everybody knows what I'm talking about. Here they are...

WARNING: This post (obviously) contains spoilers for all three books in the Hunger Games series. You have been warned!

WARNING #2: I am very emotional about The Hunger Games. This passion may manifest itself during the post and make what I'm writing completely incoherent.

WARNING #3: I am a huge Peeta/Katniss shipper, and therefore a lot of these moments involve their relationship. If you really like Gale with Katniss, proceed with caution.

WRITERS WEEKENDS: NANOWRIMO WEEK 2

Hi everyone,
We're half way through NaNoWriMo, and I have to admit, I'm not anywhere near as confident as I was last week. Damn the second week slump!

WRITERS WEEKENDS: NANOWRIMO WEEK 1 UPDATE (+THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF MY NOVEL)

Hi everyone,

You may have noticed I haven't posted in a week, and I only have one excuse for that...NANOWRIMO! (If you don't know what I'm on about, here's last weeks post)

We're a week into NaNoWriMo, and I have to say I'm doing pretty well! At the time of writing it's 10:14 pm on Saturday the 7th of November, and I currently have a grand total of 20,196 words, which is over 8 thousand more words than the goal of 11,667 words for today. Hell yeah!
