Getting ready for July’s #CampNaNo

Once my super secret project launched (It’s Path To Less, and you should totally check it out), I once again decided to turn my head back towards fiction. It’s a passion that will never leave me, after all, and I will always come back to it.

Just in time for Camp NaNo.

Between that and Megan’s enabling me to write more, I made the decision to go crazy. Not only am I participating in Camp NaNo this year (it’s been years, honestly), but I’ll be trying out a completely new genre for me: I’m writing a crime thriller.

The idea for it has been haunting me for ages. I think the first inkling I had for it was way back in 2014, but I was deep into my werewolf stories and so too busy to notice and nurture it.

But I’ve been suffering from editing fatigue lately and so I want to get my creative juices flowing with something completely new that I’ve never tried before.

Not going to lie, I’m terrified and there is a big chance that this project will crash and burn and will be the death of me.

Still, I’m excited. I’m working on prep a lot right now and I imposed some strict deadlines on myself. Wish me luck!

And if you’re participating in CampNaNo in July let me know! We’ll sprint together, maybe set up a Discord to chat?

My secret project has launched!

The last post on this website was about me taking some time off to focus on a big non-fiction project that I wanted to get off the ground.

Guess what. The super secret project has launched and has been going strong for the second month, making me feel confident enough to maybe venture back into the world of fiction. Right in time for the Camp NaNo in July, much to the delight of my writing buddy Megal Linden.

But first, I want to present you with the reason I disappeared:


A website about the journey towards lessening my impact on the environment, lessening the focus on material things with the help of minimalism and zero waste movements.

I started to look around my apartment and all the things I own and I realized that I am part of the problem.

And so I made a decision. I am not a  superhero. I cannot single-handedly save the world. But I can become part of the solution.

And in a truly millennial way of doing things, I’ll be using this blog to chronicle my journey as I cut down on what I own, and the impact I have on the environment.

It’s highly likely that I won’t always succeed, but hell, it’s the one battle where the journey is really what matters.

Wish me luck?
