It's time to start fretting over NaNoWriMo again. I'm fretting, on a wide-scale, a little bit earlier this year because not only am I going to be participating again, but I'm dragging my podcasts into it this time. So here's what NaNoWriMo looks like for me, starting in October: Mid-October, I will be posting an episode … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Preparations
Wow, it has been some time since I have posted here. In the grand scheme of things, it's only been a couple of months, but given that I was trying to keep up posting every month, it feels like a while. Here's what's new: I'm still writing both of my books. I'm still learning Japanese. … Continue reading Summer Update
I'm not good at taking advice that's said over me. I'm sure I'm not the only one, though. When I was around the age of 17 or 18, my best friend's mother told me that I should "never say never." This was in context to me talking about dating a boy - you can imagine I … Continue reading “I’ll never do that”
Are you all tired of me talking about NaNoWriMo? I sure hope not. I'm not quite done.

It's hard to pick up that momentum where I left off, but I'm doing my best to get there. By the end of November, my … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2016 results…

You can be my writing buddy at NaNoWriMo here: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/dearjenna Feel free to add me and message me there. I love moral support, and I'll definitely be down to help you … Continue reading NaNoWriMo, Going Dark
Oh God. I got an email from NaNoWriMo.org that says that it's time to setup my plans for my novel. Now, I'm not much of a novelist, but I did do have plans for November. However, I also abandoned my bullet journal because after the second or third month I wasn't using it as much, … Continue reading October = NaNoWriMo?
I don't know if this is the same for other nonfiction writers--of poetry, prose or journalism--but I find it really difficult to branch out of nonfiction sometimes. Sure, I've written my fair share of fiction-y pieces growing up; I've dabbled in and out of Fanfiction stories. But as someone who has found her place firmly … Continue reading Exploring Other Genres: Fiction
