NaNoWriMo – the way to my vomit draft?

Have you ever done NaNoWriMo? Are you doing it this year? I'm seriously thinking about it for the first time in my writing life. This morning I've read Zoe Lea's blogpost about it and it got me thinking. Is this the way for me to write my vomit draft? I have a problem with it, … Continue reading NaNoWriMo – the way to my vomit draft?

Getting back to writing

Not writing, not blogging, not being who I want to be, again. I wish I could say that life gets in the way, but it's not that. I think that the only thing that gets in the way is myself. I've written about it in my newsletter yesterday and the more I think about it, … Continue reading Getting back to writing

Write It All Down

When I saw that Cathy Rentzenbrink has written a book about memoir writing I immediately knew I had to read it. As I couldn't wait till January, I asked Bluebird for a proof copy and they kindly sent me (digital) one. And I'm so glad they did! I was hoping that this book will help … Continue reading Write It All Down

Instagram was perfect for me, I loved being there and sharing my thoughts, bits and pieces from my life. Until I started listening to all … Continue reading What I really want

On notebooks, again

This year I was supposed to fill a notebook after a notebook. I was supposed to write everything down, make the pages thick with ink. It's august an my journal isn't even half full. Other notebooks have more blank pages than the ones written on too. Why is it so difficult for me to write … Continue reading On notebooks, again

Trusting my own idea

While writing this book of mine, something felt not right. First I thought it was the language I was writing it in, so I started writing in another one (being multilingual can be a blessing and a curse), but it still felt off. I’ve spent a couple of days away from it and yesterday I … Continue reading Trusting my own idea
