Rückblick und Pläne

Das neue Jahr hat begonnen und ich nehme mir heute die Zeit für einen kleinen Rückblick und auch dafür, meine Pläne für das neue Jahr zu sortieren. Das letzte Jahr ist für mich ein großer Schritt passiert, denn mein Fantasy Roman „Der dreizehnte Prinz“ ist im Uthruban Verlag erschienen. Der ganze Prozess war äußerst spannend … Continue reading Rückblick und Pläne

Preparing for NaNoWriMo 2021

Yes, it’s that time of the year again. Just like last year I’ve started to prepare for this year’s National Novel Writing Month in October. I’ve decided to write a Fantasy Crime Novel based in a version of Northern Ireland, that I’ve been thinking about for a while. Criteria for me to choose this project … Continue reading Preparing for NaNoWriMo 2021

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

Why can’t I write? – Self-doubts

A while ago self-doubt was a constant companion of my writing process. Writing was always part of my life but for a long time, I felt like what I wrote was only good enough for myself and a few close friends to read. Publishing anything apart from fanfiction seemed like a goal that was impossible … Continue reading Why can’t I write? – Self-doubts

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 November 2020

The first week of November is gone and that means I’ve made it through the first week of NaNoWriMo and I’m still green. I’ve reached the goal of writing 1.667 words every day to achieve the goal of writing 50.000 words in a month. I’ve even written a little more and it wasn’t as harrowing … Continue reading Writing Update November 2020

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
