#NaNoWriMo 2014: Day 20, NaNoWinner!

NaNoWriMo 2013: NaNoWinNer!

I did it! Yes, it’s the last day. (Having been suffering a nasty headache from Sunday night onwards that effectively kept me on bed rest Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday kind of ruined the “finish the 50K by the 25th” plan.) … Continue reading

It’s October 31st. Hallowe’en. But more importantly… it’s the day before NaNoWriMo 2013 starts! Yay! I’ve had… not the best luck with NaNoWriMo the past two years; I kept getting sick partway through Week 1, and never caught up afterwards. … Continue reading

Fanfiction Cover Images

NaNoLandia: Camp NaNoWriMo July ’13 #1
