Camp NaNoWriMo Update #3 – April 2017

This week was even worse than the last for my wordcount. I decreased my goal again from 35k to 30k. And I’m glad that I did it, because I was luckily able to reach this goal on Monday.

Camp NaNoWriMo Update #2 – April 2017

Another week is over and we already reached the middle of Camp NaNoWriMo. The last week was not so good for me, I suffered from depression and lack of motivation. Besides, I got tired of the story and it’s no fun writing it anymore.

Camp NaNoWriMo Update #1 – April 2017

Howdy folks,

it’s 8th April and the first week of Camp NaNoWriMo is already over. I was bleeding words on paper, sweating, crying, fighting – and all for one goal: reaching 50k words by the end of the month.

Time for a quick update so that you know how the camp is going for me this year.

Diary #7: My beta readers got mail!


Hey everybody,

it’s Saturday, time for a new blog post and some news from my end. The last week was busy. I had several appointments, had a writer’s block when I tried to write a new chapter for my blog novel (on my German blog) and was cleaning and tidying up my entire appartment, because my superintendent visited me and I wanted to make a good impression … Phew! My back still hurts from cleaning for hours. 😀

Diary #6: Editing and Plotting


Hey folks,

today it’s time for a new diary post. I’d like to share with you what I’m doing these days and what’s new in my life.

So far I had a good start into 2017, even though I’m still suffering from a lack of motivation and depression from time to time. There’s sometimes that dark cloud over my head and I hardly can brace myself up. I sleep very late these days, usually until noon or even afternoon. I know, that’s not good for me, but I can’t help it. I set my alarm clock every evening, but when it rings in the morning, I just ignore it. 😛 Let’s hope that this will get better with time.

NaNoWriMo Update – Week #2

Hey everyone,nanowrimo_2016_webbadge_participant

yeah, I know this update comes a little late. I’m very sorry for this – my excuse is, that I didn’t feel well the last few days and I was busy with writing. So I didn’t think of posting a little update for my English blog. But here I go, telling you the good news of week #2 🙂

NaNoWriMo Update – Week #1

Hey everybody, nanowrimo_2016_webbadge_participant

first of all, I’m terribly sorry for not posting something new in a whole month. But it was nothing really new here and I also didn’t receive many new postcards, so I had nothing to post. Hm.. but now NaNoWriMo started and I’d like to give you a short update about my writing progress.

I found some really nice writing buddies on the official NaNoWriMo website. Most are from Germany, but I also met some nice people from the United States and United Kingdom and I’m very happy that I got in touch with them.

Diary #5: Novella or novel?


Hello out there,

it’s Mimi again. I just wanted to give you a short update about my writing process and what’s new in my life. By the way, to all the German-speakers who read this: I have a German YouTube channel where I publish vlogs about writing and my life. If you want to follow them, feel free to take a look by clicking here.

Now, about my writing process: It goes very well for me at the moment. I have written almost 40k words this month, even though it’s not NaNoWriMo 😉 In total, I have already written over 300,000 words this year, which is amazing. Don’t know, how many book pages that would be … but A LOT for sure 😀 My goal for this year is 350,000 words, so I have 50,000 words left to go.
