I Won NaNoWriMo (Woo-Hoo)

Hello to all my wonderful readers,

I am so happy and feeling on the top of the world right now… I Wrote 7,584 words today and my total words is 50,84 words (I am so happy, that I had to share, lol) πŸ˜€ ❀

I won NaNoWriMo (OMG).

The moment I went over the 50K I kept writing, but with so many screaming, lol, of Yay and Omgosh (for real) and tons of happy tears (I’m crazy… I know, but I don’t care).

As soon as I validated the word count and I saw that I got the certificate and the wonderful song they’ve made for us, that felt sooo amazing (and I’m still high on that feeling, lol). I kept writing just until I hit the 10K again, lol so now my total is 52,500 words (had to finish a few things).

Clipboarder.2015.11.30-004

This NaNoWriMo was harder than I remembered ever being before. I wrote almost 30K in 3 days, lol, which was insane or me, but that was the only time I had for myself to just write. I’ve learned so much about myself, my writing but most importantly, about what I can do in just a few hours of being alone with my Rainy Mood and my laptop (LOL) ❀

Clipboarder.2015.11.30-005

With all that is happening in my life right now, I really couldn’t believe that I will win this year, but I did it (I am so happy) πŸ˜€

If you are still writing on the race to win Nano, go and write!

Here are a few tips from what I’ve learned this year

  • Don’t think, just write! This is not the novel you will send out, lol. This Novel can be rubbish with tons of great potential, so don’t think of how it is right now and just keep on writing.
  • Write anywhere. I mean it, anywhere. In the car, the tube, the bus. While you wait for something or someone. On the laptop, with pen and paper, on the phone. Anywhere and with anything, as long as you write πŸ˜€
  • Push yourself as much as you can to write faster and faster. You can rest and sleep after it’s all done πŸ˜‰

About the resting part, well… Sadly for me, I don’t have much time to rest, lol. In just a few hours, tomorrow will become a new month and with it comes so many things: Hubby’s Birthday ❀ Start Wars ❀ Book Reviews ❀ Lots of appointments to go with my mom (Busy Bee) and… I need to keep on writing and start my content editing as well (Yay me) πŸ˜€

How is your Nano? Are you far behind or close to the finish line? Did you win this year’s NaNoWriMo? What are your plans after NaNoWriMo? Can’t wait to read your thoughts and plans ❀

Remember that even if you are behind, you can still win… Just write those words… fast! Even if you know you can’t win, keep writing, something amazing can come out of it. If you won… Congrats, that is so awesome πŸ˜€

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀

Random Ramblings

RandomRamblings

Happy Sunday to you all,

I hope you all had (or still having) a wonderful Sunday ❀ My plan for today was to write. That is all, lol, just write as much as I can and as fast as I can πŸ˜€

Sorry for the long absence here, I wasn’t feeling very good and I barely had any moment to just sit and write to you. I think I was not feeling well due to massive exhaustion, which led me to add half a pill more to my daily dosage, lol.

All is better now. I have rested well, wrote a lot and tried (very poorly) to overcome the hurricane of a mess in my house.

Nano is almost over and I had only two days to finish Nano with the minimum of 50,000 words. Yesterday I was at 32,000 and today I wrote like the wind, lol, bringing my total words to 42,500 ❀

Nano

(I wrote 10.5K words today, omg)

I do hope that tomorrow I will be able to sit down and write the rest of the words I need to WIN NaNoWriMo (Oh yeah) πŸ˜€

This month was so busy, but I was able to make a small writing plan for the next year, only this time it will go nicely (I hope) with all that I need to do. I’ve also changed my business plan, tweaked it a bit, so it will fit better with my hectic everyday life, lol.

I bought a few books, read a few online articles, blog posts and saw a few YouTube videos (you know, research), all so that they will help me plan better and think better of what I want and how I want to achieve it.

After Nano I am going go back to the first manuscript and start my content editing, I hope not to find many plot holes, lol πŸ˜€

I hope you are all enjoying your day and if you are doing Nano, I hope you are motivated to finish (so go back to your writing now, lol) and to all that Won Nano, congrats to you all, that is such a wonderful achievement πŸ™‚

I can’t wait…

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀

Weekly Round Up {Coffee n’ Notes}

coffeennotesweekly

I must say that I am extremely proud of myself today. I may not have reached my goal of 12K-14K (today is not over yet, lol), but I have written so much and so fast that I am not that behind on my word count as I was before.

When I saw that I went over the 10K today, 10,650 words to exact, lol, I felt better and let myself relax a bit, cook a nice dinner for both hubby and me and even though I feel a bit burned out by all the massive writing, it felt amazing to be so close to the 25K.

I am now at 24,200 (Yey) and that was my Sunday so far πŸ˜€

I hope you are all having a nice day and if you are doing NaNoWriMo, I hope you had a very productive writing. So Back to this post, lol. Here’s a short recap ofΒ this week’s posts featured at Coffee n’ Notes. Grab yourself a nice beverage (mine is strawberry and banana tea, yummy), make yourself comfortable and have fun reading πŸ˜‰

Nano Update {Week Two}

Nano

It’s the second week of NaNoWriMo is over and it was a hard week for me to sit down and write. Go see how I did and learn of my new goals πŸ˜€

Friday Musing

Musing

I love my Fridays so much and I wait (not so) patiently for the next Friday to come. This week I didn’t have any specific musing, as it was a very busy week, but I kept my head in the game (the NaNoWriMo game) and set myself a huge goal.

The Fireworks Book Tag

Tag

I wasn’t tagged to do this tag, but I really enjoyed doing it. Anytime I can blab on book is a great way to pass the time πŸ˜€

As always, thank you so much to you all for your wonderful support and your lovely comments. They always make me smile and feel tons better. I hope your day will continue to be amazing and restful πŸ™‚

Nano Update {Week Two}

It’s a wonderful Saturday, full of rest πŸ˜‰

I hope you are all having a nice and relaxed day/weekend.

I woke up late today and hubby put some episodes we missed throughout the week and it was so much fun to catch up, eat junk food and enjoy the day ❀

If you missed my first NaNoWriMo Update and want to see how it went, just click here πŸ™‚

This Nano update sadly will be very short, lol. I barely wrote a single word this week and as I wrote in the previous post of Friday Musing I plan to do a massive writing on Sunday (12K-14K), so wish me luck because I will surely need it, lol.

Days 8+9+10 I didn’t write at all, so I stayed on the same word count of 11,150.

Days 11+12 I wrote just a few small scenes, but didn’t update my nano site.

Day 13 I came back home very tired but still thought of the scenes I wrote the day before and started to elaborate on them and the words just flew smoothly (2400 words). Making me jump a bit on my word count to 13,550.

Day 14 (Today) Haven’t written anything yet and I don’t think I will write today at all.

Tomorrow I need to be on the 25K, so that is why I plan to do only 1 thing tomorrow and it’s to write. Just write as much as I can, from 7am – 16pm and hopefully reach my goal by then. I don’t like being behind on my words but with all I have to do throughout the week, I guess it was unavoidable.

If you’re doing Nano, I hope you are having a productive writing and to everyone else, I hope your day is going great as well πŸ˜€

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀

It’s Friday (Friday the 13th)

I’m so excited and so happy it’s Friday πŸ˜€ I can sit back, watch great shows hubby and I missed and just enjoy the relaxation with some good cup of tea πŸ˜‰

I hope you are all having a great day and an awesome Friday ❀

This week so hectic and with my mom not feeling so well and being with her every day, I wasn’t able to write as much as I wanted. Will do a massive writing on Sunday… My plan is to write about 12-14K on Sunday πŸ˜€

This weekend I plan on re-reading Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #2). I was planning to re-read it again, just before I will read the third book (I am waiting for the third book), but now with Friday the 13th, it seems like a perfect fit πŸ˜‰

HollowCity
Picture is taking from Goodreads

I don’t have any specific musing for this week, just to enjoy Friday and the weekend (I was looking forward to this weekend so much). My plan is to rest a lot and enjoy this weekend as much as I can πŸ™‚ Another small-huge, lol, thing is that both hubby and me (but mostly me, lol) are completely buzzed about the movie we are going to see, on the 19th (only a week away, OMG)… The Hunger Games: Mockingjay part 2 ❀ ❀ ❀

I hope you’ll have the time to sit back, relax and enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚

This is me right now, lol πŸ˜€

Weekly Round Up {Coffee n’ Notes}

coffeennotesweekly

Wonderful Sunday my beautiful readers…

This week was so hectic and it’s going to be like for a long time. The weather is starting to get colder and for me, it’s the start of heaven ❀ I do miss the rain as we only had one good rainy day and I can’t wait for more to come. Maybe I will use less the Rainy Mood site and just listen to the actual rain (one can hope and dream…) πŸ˜‰

How was your Sunday? Did you have a nice and relaxed day? or were you like me running all around the town for errands. I did have fun with mom shopping and just hang together πŸ˜€ So… Here’s a short recap ofΒ this week’s posts featured at Coffee n’ Notes, have fun reading ❀

Nano Update

Nano

The first week of November and NaNoWriMo is all over and even though I had a crazy week, I’ve still managed to put those words down on paper (paper and laptop) πŸ˜‰ Go visit the post and see how I did πŸ˜€

Friday Musing

Musing

What a week… I was so happy that the weekend came ❀ So much happened this week, but I was still able to be inspired and more importantly… Motivated to write and write some more πŸ˜€

The Instagram Tag

Instagram2

This was such a fun tag to do πŸ˜€ I have a huge obsession for Instagram and now I was able to say what I love about Instagram (or as I call it for short, Insta) πŸ˜‰ Don’t forget to follow and say hello ❀

IT’S FRIDAY! (yes, you see correctly, I’m shouting, lol)

I am so happy it’s Friday and finally, the weekend is here. It’s time to relax and enjoy my time with hubby, lol (okay… I just couldn’t go on, lol). It is weekend and I am more than excited about it arrival but, I have so much work to do this weekend that the excitement is wearing off a little, lol.

I need to write, cook, wash, blog, clean, organize and grab some missed moments with hubby, so you can tell already that my weekend is full of activities, lol. Some, I’m really looking forward to and some… Well, needs to be done.

Housework

Things changed a bit (or a lot) as this month started but even with all the hectic day’s events of Nano, home, hubby, blog, and mom, I still felt very inspired and motivated this week to do the work and write those words down, even if I didn’t have much time as I wanted or planned.

How is your Friday? Anything planned for this Friday or weekend?

Nano Update

Happy Saturday to you all

I hope you are all having a nice and relaxed weekend. Weekend for me was a bit hectic and tons of work to do, but I also was able to sleep and I love sleeping πŸ˜€

So… Nano is here and week one is gone (hehe). So far I had only 3 days of truly giving it all and write, while on the other days I just couldn’t.

Days 1+2Β  I wrote a bit more than 5K which was amazing and I felt good.

Day 3Β  I wrote less, but still managed to write over 3K.

Day 4Β  I didn’t write at all, not a single word. I was with my mom and hubby got sick and even I didn’t feel at my best.

Days 5+6Β  These days were still hectic and even more than usual, but I still was able to write here and there and was able to write the words I needed to be at the 10K mark. I even was able to go over it a bit πŸ˜€

Day 7Β  Not a single word, lol. I haven’t been writing all day as most of the day went to cleaning, organizing, washing, and cooking.

So far I am only a bit behind in my word count, 10,285/11,667 but I do hope to catch up on my word count this week and if I’m lucky enough reach my goal. If you are doing Nano I hope all is going great with your word count and to you all, I hope you are having a wonderful and relaxed weekend πŸ˜€

Weekly Round Up {Coffee n’ Notes}

coffeennotesweekly

Happy Sunday to you all ❀

I hope you had a lovely weekend so far and for those who celebrated Halloween, I hope the sugar rush wasn’t too bad and you are enjoying the day after πŸ˜‰

For me it was an eventful weekend: watching 4 hours of a Twitch show (from geek and Sundry) called Critical Role (hubby and I looove this show), then we gamed in the Halloween maze and entered the new maps and events. All of these mixed with tons of sleep and yummy food, made this weekend a good one ❀

Now, as the weekend ended and Nano has already started, it’s time to get back to work and write, write, write! And for those who are still enjoying their weekend, here is a little recap of this week on Coffee n’ Notes…

Blog Party

celebration-159859_1280

Yesterday at Halloween, I held my first ever Blog Party or as many bloggers call it, Link Party ❀ It was such a fun way to see people’s posts and I got to follow a few new ones (Loved it). To all that been to my party, thank you so much and if you missed it, there is always next time πŸ˜‰

Friday Musing

Musing

As always, on Fridays, I post my Friday Musing and this time I rambled on all the new and exciting things that happened to me that week. Here I rambled this time on the new expansion of the game I love the most and more.

My NaNoWriMo Prep

NaNo-2015-Participant-Banner

I love Nano so much and each year I try to do Nano, last year I couldn’t finish it due to my mom being in the hospital a few time that November. This year I plan to win and even go higher than the normal word count of 50K. So if you just starting out with Nano or just want to try new things to prepare yourself for the amazing madness of NaNoWriMo, you can find here how I prep for this craziness of writing an entire novel in one month ❀

The Liebster Award

LiebsterAward

I was nominated for this award a while back by the lovely Karen from Shade But No Shade blog. I had so much fun answering her questions and posting this award, thank you again, Karen ❀

That is all for this Weekly Round-Up, you guys are always seem to make me smile and I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday and a great weekend. If you are doing Nano, good luck with the writing πŸ™‚

As always… Thank you so much for reading ❀

Friday Musing

Musing

It’s Friday, yay and here at Coffee n’ Notes it’s time for Friday Musing πŸ™‚

This week had a weird combination of an easy and busy week, lol, a very weird combination but that’s how it felt :D. My fridge shelf, that broke over 2 months ago, is really hard to replace, lol, they keep sending the wrong part (annoying, but we keep waiting).

My mom is doing okay, but we had a few hard days, but she is getting better and stronger ❀ I saw her walk today for a few minutes and it was amazing. I could barely hold myself from crying (a proud cry and a happy cry).

Along with the busy days and excitement about my mom and the new game expansion of gw2 (Heart Of Thorns), I haven’t noticed that Nano is only 2 days away (OMG!). Life is so crazy and soon it will be even crazier, lol. I am so excited about this Nano and I do hope to win this year πŸ˜€

My major ‘Musing’ for this week, hmm… I have to say it is the near event of NaNoWriMo but also going out with my mom shopping. You see… Going shopping with my mom is very rare and to sit down with her and shop till we drop was so nice and even I didn’t realize just how much I missed it ❀

NaNoWriMo is creeping up on me fast, building both fear and excitement in me. Now, even though I had already prepared myself with an outline of my second book: New Earth in The Earth Legacy Series, new stories pop up flooding my thoughts and dreams with new stories and new characters, jumping all around me craving for their spotlight to shine through.

And… It’s Halloween! How cool is that? Here we do not celebrate Halloween, but hubby and I feel it in the game with the many costumes and amazing mini-games πŸ˜€ I will Instagram about that throughout the weekend πŸ™‚

I hope wherever you are, you are having nothing but fun and enjoy your time with your loved ones and stay tuned for tomorrow at Coffee n’ Notes πŸ˜‰

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀
