Hello, dear followers!
As I mentioned previously, I am going to be attempting a crazy challenge for National Novel Writing Month. I have already made a couple videos with tips, the best of which is my NaNoWriMo Survival Guide. That being said, a bunch of you have asked me questions regarding whether I was going to be making Vlogs during November.
Now, the thing is this. I would like to make Vlogs during November— because it would not only inspire me to work that much harder, but it would also add to the sense of solidarity (for everyone of my awesome followers attempting NaNoWriMo as well). The problem is that my time is very limited, and the idea of doing the blog, NaNoWriMo, and my other jobs— while at the same time tossing in Vlogs, is just out of the question :c
So, here are our options:
★ Keep Things The Way They Are ★

I can just get back to making Writing Advice Blitz, Virtual Writing Academy, and Writing Challenges, in the same schedule as before (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in that order). This means no special NaNoWriMo content, but also no change to the way things are.

✿ Casual VLOGS ✿

The polar opposite of the previous way would be making Vlogs, updating you all on my process and giving you insight into my way of tackling NaNoWriMo. The videos would be pretty casual, kinda like a trip Vlog, and although I would possibly offer advice it would all be focused on *my* process. There would be 3 videos a week, again any more work than that is kind of unfeasible with my current situation.

♥︎ The NaNoWriMo Report ♥︎

Now, this is an idea someone offered. It would be less casual than just a regular Vlog. I would give you updates on my process, but the main focus would be to answer NaNoWriMo related questions and offer a little bit of advice, inspiration, and ideas to get you out of possible blocks. Think of a dumbed-down version of all my main three shows rolled into one.

What do you think? Would you like to see some specialized video content for NaNoWriMo? What do you think of the options above? Please let me know in the comments, or leave a word in my inbox!
Of course, this change is going to be temporary. I plan to get back my main three series (Blitz, VWA, Challenges) once NaNoWriMo is over… unless, of course, you all would prefer to make these changes permanent, again, it all depends on what you all think— so don’t be shy to voice your opinion!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read and reply to this post! I want to make the best content for all of you, so I reach out to you to make sure that I am making the content you want to watch! :D
Oh yeah apparently I need to end this with a question mark otherwise people can’t reply?

[HAUNTED MANSION] is a writing mix about fear and the creatures that lurk in the halls of an abandoned mansion! You have made a terrible mistake, mortal. You freely entered her domain— and you’re never going to leave!

This playlist contains 18 of my favorite tracks for writing horror, terror, and supernatural suspense! What brought you here, foolish mortal? Why did you trespass into the domain of our mistress? You explore the halls of her mansion, you attempt to loot from her riches, but— in time you will join our ranks. No one who enters her domain ever leaves. Go ahead, try to open the door and the windows… they are all locked, aren’t they? Go ahead, try to ease that feeling of dread all around you. You hear that? Her music box is playing… and when that tune is over, the halls will flood with blood. She is coming for you, and she will feed upon your flesh. Oh, mortal, if you only knew what you’ve gotten into.

Death is only the beginning of your punishment.

♪ Listen to this mix on 8tracks ♪

Hello, writerly friends!

National Novel Writing Month is almost upon us! Are you ready for 30 days of literally abandon? I sure hope so! :D Otherwise, though, you have no reason to worry because I’ve compiled answers to the most common NaNoWriMo problems, along with a bunch of helpful links!

If you want to see my silly face (and hear of the ridiculous challenge I am going to be doing during NaNoWriMo) then feel free to give the video above a spin! Otherwise, you can just head over below and checkout the answers to your questions~ ♥︎

  • If the problem is that you don’t have a story idea… No need to worry! I have been making Story Seeds and Weird Prompts for over 2 years. Of course, you’re allowed (and encouraged) to change, twist, and combine prompts as you see fit! No sourcing necessary c;
  • If the problem is that you haven’t done any outlining… You’re in luck! I have a two-part video where I go over my system for brainstorming, fleshing out, and plotting a novel! Click HERE to check it out :D
  • If the problem is that you’ve lost the motivation… I have just the thing for you! I recently uploaded a video titled ‘How to Regain the Motivation to Finish your Novel' and it contains my *best* piece of advice for reigniting the flame and getting back into writing!
  • If the problem is that you’re a little rusty… Then you’ve come to the right place c; My youtube channel is full of Writing Exercises and Writing Challenges!

Finally, I have a couple extra things for you! :D

  • If you need a little more help fleshing out characters… you should head over to my collection of Character Questions!
  • If you need a little bit of encouragement… you should check out my Writer Positivity page, and remember that if you have a writing question you can always send it my way!
  • Finally, if you love listening to music while writing… then head over to my 8tracks page and pick up one of my many Writing Playlists! Made by writers, for writers c;

I hope this helps~ ♥︎
