#lwchallenge// March 2019 “text”

Welcome to the Little Writing Challenge of March 2019! Please make sure you’ve read my blog post called Little Writing Challenge before reading this one for all the rules and how to submit your story. Text This month’s challenge revolves around a text. Whether that text is a happy one, a last text, or an automated text, is up to you. You don’t even have to reveal what the text says. But the main character has to be affected by the text and act upon it. It can be written in any genre you like. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Good luck and happy writing!

#lwchallenge// February 2019 “meet cute”

Welcome to the Little Writing Challenge of February 2019! Please make sure you’ve read my blog post called Little Writing Challenge before reading this one for all the rules and how to submit your story. Meet cute Because it’s Valentine’s Day the 14th, I decided to make this month’s challenge a cute one. The Little Writing Challenge for February 2019 is “meet cute”. I thought that was very fitting, since this is the first Little Writing Challenge and that’s also kind of like meeting for the first time. And while the internet says a meet cute has to result into a romantic relationship, I don’t agree. A meet cute friendship is 100% legit in my opinion. So even if you’re not into writing romance you could make this challenge work, because I appreciate original takes on it. You can write just about the meet cute, or what comes after it as well. That’s up to you. Just make sure your…

Little Writing Challenge

A few days ago while I was trying to fall asleep, a new idea popped up in my head. I wrote it down and fell asleep. The next day I was still excited about the idea, namely starting a monthly writing challenge. Years back I hosted a writing contest on Wattpad and I really enjoyed doing that, but I don’t want to critique the writings of those that participate anymore, so that’s why I chose for a challenge instead. This challenge is a great way to start writing more, to warm up for writing your novel, or to get to know your own characters better in a different setting, without taking up too much of your time. I hope you are as excited as I am! Little Writing Challenge // The Little Writing Challenge is a reoccurring monthly challenge that starts on the first of every month and ends on the 25th. // Write around a 1000 words. This is…

My reading, blogging and writing goals for 2019

December 31 is the time to set goals. I always set goals and then I forget about them once January is over, haha. By writing my goals down and sharing them on my blog, I hope it’ll be harder to give up on them. Feel free to call me out if I’m miserably failing throughout the year to accomplish these goals. Hopefully at the end of 2019 I can look back proudly. (Also please appreciate this picture I took, because I slightly burned my foot because one of the sparks fell on it and there’s now a small hole in my floor. Don’t try this at home y’all. Whaha. At least I didn’t set my bookshelf on fire.) Reading goals At the end of every year I set a reading goal for the upcoming year and this time is no different. What is different, is that I am going to be taking my reading goal a lot more seriously. I…

NaNoWriMo// Tips

It’s almost November and for a lot of people that means NaNoWriMo is starting soon! No idea what I’m talking about? Read THIS blog post where I talk about what NaNoWriMo is. If you’re participating this year as well, I’ve got some tips for you that might come in handy. Know what you want to write about Having at least a vague idea of what you want to write about will help you a lot. If you sit down behind your laptop everyday, you want to actually write and not stare at a wall for at least 20 minutes, trying to come up with something. Don’t plan every detail in advance if that’s not your style, but know what story you want to tell. The first time I participated in NaNoWriMo I was stuck halfway through, because I didn’t really know where my story was headed, and that’s why I couldn’t reach 50.000 words. Know thy characters While I was…

NaNoWriMo// What is the National Novel Writing Month?

November 1 means the start of something where I look forward to and look up to at the same time: National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). What you’re supposed to do if you participate? Write 50.000 words in one month! Why 50.000 words, you may ask. If you have written about 50.000 words, you could have finished a novel. You might need more words if you’re going to write an epic fantasy, but 50.000 is a great start. For example, The Great Gatsby is around 50.000 words. NaNoWriMo is from November 1 till November 30, which means you have to write at least 1667 words a day. And yeah, that’s a lot. NaNoWriMo has an official website which you can check out HERE. You don’t write on the website itself, you use your own word processor or write by hand (you’ll have a very strong hand at the end of the month if you do that, haha). So you don’t have…
