I’m still not sure why I find it so hard to blog regularly. I think this is my longest absence yet. It’s appalling really.

Well you gotta keep at something, right? And I think now is a good time for a change. Why? Because I am currently out of work. I left my job in December of last year and now I can focus a lot more on my writing. I’m looking for ways of making money and am hoping to find ways online.

Perhaps blogging can be an option. I’m also looking into ways of making money from my writing. I’m still not yet published but I have other means. That’s for another blog.

In the meantime, please accept my humblest apologies and I intend to do better.

If there are any specific topics you wish to see blogged about, list them in the comments below and I shall do my best to cover them.

For now that’s all from me.

Okay, I’m a terrible person. I’ve totally neglected my blog. I have no excuse except…LIFE. Huge apologies but with NaNoWriMo upon us, I will be blogging this month about my progress. I will do my best to update my blog more regularly once it’s over.

I also have a month off work so I can dedicate the entire month to writing.

So today is the first day of NaNo. How has everyone gone? I’m quite impressed with my progress. My total word count is exactly 10,501 words. I had a goal of 2,500 and I’m excited to have exceeded it.

It’s strange, this is the first year I haven’t planned my NaNo novel thoroughly, yet when I started writing, it flowed. I know during NaNo we all reach that peak where we feel like we can’t go on. We’ve dried up and all ideas are gone. But I’m hoping if I keep writing while the ideas are fresh, I may be able to get the draft of this story written before I dry up.

I already have so much more I want to write today but I feel like I’m reaching exhaustion so I’m going to stop. I don’t want to burn myself out too early. I can write again tomorrow and I’m sure my ideas will return.

Well, that’s all for now. Remember, no matter which point you’re at for NaNo, you’re all doing great. This is all a bit of fun. A means to challenge yourself. Do what you can do and regardless of the outcome, you’ll still be a winner at the end of it.

Have fun and happy writing! ❤

I had to share this amazing blog from a wonderful person and friend I have come to know quite well on Wattpad. She wrote this about my story ‘Always the Bride’, which is available to read on wattpad.com. A huge thanks to Chid for this amazing review.

Please go check out her work on Wattpad and follow her blog.

Wanderful Life

Always the Bride by Lisa Stanbridge and it is totally amazing in every single way possible. I found the book on a free site called Wattpad. All you need is an email address and BOOM millions of books at your disposal.

*Disclosure: There is a wide range of different quality of books. Some published authors put up bits from their works and other 13 year old girls write fan-fictions. So it all depends on what you like. If you don’t mind some amateur writing that great. If you do that’s fine too! There’s literally a book for everyone*

Always the Bride is one of those books that needs to be published and sold in stores worldwide because it is AMAZING! The story focuses on Teresa who goes through series of situations in order to fill her cravings for her addictions. What is she addicted to? You’ll have to read…

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you”

A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

This quote has always irked me. People send it around saying ‘OMG it’s so sweet’ but I don’t see it that way. I see it as saying he wants to die before you (whoever ‘you’ ends up being) so he doesn’t have to live without ‘you’.

Well, to me that’s a little selfish. What about the other person? They have to live without him, even if it is for a day. Where’s the fairness in that?

Am I reading too much into it? I’m renowned for doing that. 🙂 but I’m curious, what do other people think? Enlighten me in the comments below! 😀

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt

I’m fairly new at blogging and am a little dubious. Therefore, I feel this quote is very relevant
