Hamster Pages & otherwise brilliant ideas

The new year is just around the corner, 2019 swooshed by in a blink. I’ve named 2020 the year of the Twin swan and I’m really looking forward to it. So when this month of saying goodbye to the old year (& other festivities) is over we’re stepping into a magic year.

And what better way to celebrate than getting yourself a new bullet journal!

Pretty n’est pas? (French for “isn’t it?”)

I already formulated some goals I want to work towards, and SURPRISE, a lot of them are writing goals. Finish two stories, query novel before my birthday, get rejected, to name a few. I set aside room in my journal for agent research and otherwise brilliant ideas and marked the pages with Maki and Hamster washi tape because I need all the encouragement I can get.

Have a happy month!

Writing Excuses or: Dreams about Henry

Every writer procrastinates, I think (and if you don’t, do NOT tell me). My favorite pass time is PROCRASTACLEARING, cleaning already clean objects is what I do, or I move things around. I also vacuum way too often.

That’s the reason why I’m going to buy myself a Henry when I ever get an agent/ sell a book/ get published. It’s my ultimate writer goal, if I earn enough money for a Henry I’ll consider myself a successful published writer.

I daydream about Henry tagging along the room, me vacuuming and thinking about plotpoints, he smiling all the way.

henry 2

Look at him.

But dreaming about Henry is not the reason I came to my blog today. Lately I’ve been thinking about what I should write on my blog. I enjoy reading writing tips/ tips on craft so I thought maybe I should try some of those. AND THEN IT HAPPENED (see how I’ve inserted that important plotpoint in this post hahaha)

I was notwriting on my story and listening to a podcast while vacuuming. The Podcast?

Writing Excuses.

!!!!!!!!!

Why?

Why didn’t I know this exists, it is so good! ANd now I don’t want to write on craft anymore, I just want to hear them talk and do the homework.

The tagline: fifteen minutes long. Because you’re in a hurry and we’re not that smart.

They Lie. They are smart. Go listen.
