Winning NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month 2020 was a success! I “won” by writing and surpassing the 50,000 word goal during the month of November. I have a first draft of my BOOK #1 in the young adult trilogy I have been working on since last November. It has been a struggle. I consistently want my work to be perfect as is, and I know that is not the goal of this challenge. The goal is to create, and anything else comes after. Sometimes it is hard to remember that first drafts are crap, that it will get better. Trying to keep that in mind. Continuing to work on this project after a bit of time away with books #2 and #3.

Scary Movie Watch List

Spooky Season is currently upon us. I love writing spooky stories, and I equally love watching them! Every October I watch scary films or TV shows. Usually my movie for the day is not decided until the actual day I watch it, but I do keep a list of things I would like to watch. Check out what I have watched this October so far. I try to watch at least one movie or show a day. Some of these are re-watches for me.
