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!

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 :)

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever! Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
