Camp Nano and Writing Update

I just wanted to give you a quick update on my Camp Nano experience. My goal was to write 20 k words for my romantic crime novel “Murder and Pumpkin Spice”, and it was not hard for me to reach that goal. I finished a week early, which shows me that I have become a … Continue reading Camp Nano and Writing Update

My Bulletjournal

If you’re not a full-time writer, you need a functioning system to plan your writing process. With all the other tasks you have in your life, it may otherwise just fall short. At least, that is the case for me. I’m a person who likes to plan their days and weeks in advance, simply because … Continue reading My Bulletjournal

Writing Update February 2021

Time for my first writing update in the New Year. My best achievement was finishing the first draft of my German Urban Fantasy story “Grauzeit”. I started this novel in November for NaNoWriMo. It is a project that is very close to my heart. Finishing it this week left me quite emotional and it’s not … Continue reading Writing Update February 2021

My 2020

I don’t think anyone would disagree with me saying 2020 was a difficult and draining year on many levels. I believe that it is still important to also see the positive things that have happened in one’s personal life and not just file it away as a dark year. These things may be small compared … Continue reading My 2020

Writing Update December 2020

Just a quick update on my writing schedule right now. I have to say that I love December as a writing month and I would love it even more if we had some snow as I find it so inspiring when the world turns white. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be in the cards right … Continue reading Writing Update December 2020

My NaNoWriMo 2020 Experience

I’m going to be honest with you: I never thought I would be able to write 50 k in one month. Not just because I have a two months old baby at home and didn’t know whether she would let me work, but also because I thought that I needed more time to write that … Continue reading My NaNoWriMo 2020 Experience

Writing Update October 2020

It’s the start of my favorite season and I’m feeling very inspired right now. I’m still currently editing my German Fantasy novel “Der dreizehnte Prinz”, but I’m slowly coming to an end. There are some passages that I have to rewrite while others have to be cut completely. I can’t really understand anymore why I … Continue reading Writing Update October 2020

Taking Time

Time management is something I’m constantly struggling with. That is probably the case for most writers who have another job as well or are moms and dads. Despite having a job I like and a family, I see writing as one of the most important things in my life and there is a reason for … Continue reading Taking Time

Unter Druck

Seit einer Weile probiere ich ja für mich aus wie es sich anfühlt unter Druck zu schreiben. Das Schreiben ist mein Hobby und bisher habe ich es immer so gehandhabt, dass ich einfach geschrieben habe, wenn ich Lust darauf hatte. Meistens ist es zwar so, dass ich eine Geschichte möglichst schnell fertigbekommen möchte, wenn ich … Continue reading Unter Druck
