April 9, 2014

After I hit a writing low yesterday, today it went much better again. At 7pm local time I joined my first virtual write-in with some of the NaNoWriMo guys and girls. The challenges kicked off my imagination for the evening and I got another chapter down. With a slightly creepy…

Camp NaNoWriMo – Day 7

April 7, 2014

Yes, I’m still on it! The writers block has been overcome. After a planned writing break on Thursday I got only a few words down on Friday and way less than anticipated on Saturday. But I am back on track now. Did not quite catch up on what I missed…

Signs of spring in London's St. James's park
Wake up, it’s spring!

March 18, 2014

Time flies! I could swear that Christmas was only last month, when spring is actually knocking at the window already.
