NaNoWriMo check-in: Memes that describe my current feelings about my novel.

NaNoWriMo 2017 Participant Flair

I am still trying to bang out words to reach my goal by the 28th, but I stop to have a little bit of fun. I love GIFs so consider yourself warned with this post.

When I started writing from nothing on November 01st, I was excited and pumped and shouting “LET’S DO THIS!”


When I didn’t write for a day, I tried making it up the next day: I must write 3000 words today.

Yet, I was sometimes distracted:

Social media is not a huge distraction for me, but I like logging into Pinterest for I create character boards there sometimes.

And I found this…

My main male character is going through a rough time after losing someone important, but he is obliviously charming.

Did I mention that he is a professor?

And there is this one character who is like…

I am having fun writing this story, although when I reread a few chapters, I rolled my eyes; but this is where I am grateful that something call editing exists!

Although the story is currently titled Dangerous Obsession, it is not a romance. It’s kind of angsty. I’ve never really done angst before and I try to stay away from it, but it couldn’t escape this time.

When you think there’s a cute moment, well, hmm, don’t hold your breath.

I was happy when I passed 27,000 words!

30 Day Writing Challenge: Days 19-24

Day 19: What's in your bag

Not much today… My Bible study guide, two notebooks, a pencil case, hand sanitizer, a rag, phone charger, loose writing notes, a snack etc.

Day 20: Five things you're passionate about

* My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is so selfless and is love. Trying to live for Him has its ups and downs and backslidings, but I keep holding onto Him. ❤

* Writing. I have a love/hate relationship with writing, but at the end of the day, I always crawl back and beg to be taken back like the jealous lover that I am.

* Learning/History. I love discovering new things! Life is a learning process and every day there is a lesson to be taught/learned.

* Books. Reading is important. It helps sharpens your mind and makes you think according to the material that you’re reading. Depending on how much time that I have to read – I try to make time every day – I can read a book in one sitting. 

* French culture. Being the Francophile that I am, I am always happy whenever I come across French stuff. The French are very riveting.

Day 21: Someone who inspires you

The one, the only, Jesus Christ. If not for Him, I don’t know where I’ll be finding the strength to sometimes face the day ahead. ❤

Day 22: One thing that you've never done that most people have

Rock climbing! I’ll love to try it one day, though.

Day 23: Most memorable vacation

It was late last year when I went on a mini local trip. *sighs* I have to do that again soon for I love exploring my country. There are so much history and beauty waiting to be uncovered.

Day 24: Goals for next month

The only goal that I have in mind for next month is to catch up on writing the twin series that I’ve neglected to do NaNoWriMo.
