NaNoWriMo

Hey everyone, just thought I'd write a little post about what I'm going to be doing hopefully throughout the whole month of November. I'm taking part in NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month. The aim of it is that during the month of November, you should try to write a 50,000 word novel. Sounds crazy, right? I know, I know, but everyone else was doing it, and I've had an idea floating around in my head for a little while so I decided to give it a go. I've never written anything before, and I hate creative writing in school, but I thought I may as well try, and see what happens :) I have no idea how long I will last, but I'm hoping I will win! Winning is just finishing, managing to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days!
But, if you are a young person, like me, you can sign up for the Young Writer's Programme. This is exactly the same as NaNoWriMo, but instead of writing 50,000 words, you can choose your goal, and make it shorter if you want to. I've signed up for both, and have set my goal on the YWP as 30,000 words, but I also have an account on the main site to see if I can do that too. So, wish me luck you guys, and let me know in the comments if you're taking part and what your username is, so I can add you to my buddy list! My username is Cheezyfeet on both sites, so add me too! :D Good luck everyone!

*If I don't post as much this month, this is why!

  3. Good luck, Bella! It's amazing that so many people do NaNoWriMo! I'm not much of a writer and I am terribly lacking in imagination, so I don't think I could ever do this! But maybe someday!

  4. Ah, thanks for letting me know about the Young Writers Programme. I too have now signed up for both. *high fives* Let's do this thing! :)

Thanks for commenting! :D I love comments, so comment away! :D

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
