I had big plans for this year. I have big plans for every year, because if I'm going to fail I may as well fail hard, right? But this year my plans were bigger and more exciting than before. My friend, Robyn Sarty, and I decided we would conduct a little experiment. I would write … Continue reading What Ever Happened to Kaye Bellingan? An Update
In my last post I announced that I would be trying to write 72 poems in a single day. I am pleased to tell you that I now have everything locked in for that including a project title and a cover mockup! I'll be streaming on my YouTube channel for some of the time - … Continue reading The Night of Rhyming Dangerously
From 08:00 SAST on Saturday, 4 April 2020, to 07:59 SAST on Sunday, 5 April 2020, I'm going to be trying to write at least 3 poems every hour. That's 72 poems at the end of the day...
I've been putting off writing this post because, Friend, I'm ashamed. Not only did I not make the deadline for submission of draft 2 of Love in Bloom, I've blown past the deadline for draft 3, and I still haven't submitted draft 2. I was struggling with the second draft because (as discussed in my … Continue reading Kaye Bellingan Update 3
Hello, Friend! I am back from my month-long blog-break and, strangely, I don't actually have much to say. At least, not in this blog - there will be a Kaye Bellingan update soon. I wasn't planning to be away from the blog for a whole month, I just have had very low communication energy recently, … Continue reading The Exclusivity Experiment
Here we are at the end of the year and the end of the decade. This is the last post for 2019 (yes, I know I said the last post would be the last one, but I was wrong). Friend, I hope that you are resting and recharging from the crazy year that's wrapping up. … Continue reading Kaye Bellingan Update 2
Sometimes life hands you lemons, and you can gripe about it or you can make the lemon-based product of your choosing. Sometimes life hands you flu instead, and there's not much you can make out of flu (except more flu). Friend, I have been sick for the better part of a week now. My body … Continue reading Something About Life and Lemons
Two weeks ago, I told you that I'd signed a publishing deal for a series of sweet romances. Last week's post was nothing to do with writing, so you may have been wondering how I'm doing with my projects. Or maybe not, in which case I'm not sure what you'll get out of this post. … Continue reading Kaye Bellingan Update 1
In my last post, I said that I hoped to be able to reveal some of my reasons for dropping NaNo early next year. Well, friend, the stars have aligned and I can reveal one of them to you now. Right here, in this very post! This past Monday, after weeks of planning and negotiation, … Continue reading Have I Got News For You!
We're halfway through the month, and so I should be halfway through the 50k. Friend, I am not. I currently have 11,349 words, which means I am 15,323 words behind where I should be. The NaNo website informs me that I would need to write 2577 words per day to finish on time. That's not … Continue reading The Mid-NaNo Report
