If We Were Having Coffee… On November 21

Hello my lovelies!

Welcome to this week’s Weekend Coffee Share! Has it already been another week?

If we were having coffee today, we’d meet in town for a nice cuppa, possibly followed by the first mug of Glühwein (mulled wine) this year! It’s cold enough for it.

If We Were Having Coffee… On November 1

Hello my lovelies!

How are you? It’s so good to see you and be among people again! You’ll have noticed that this is the first time I am a day late in joining the Weekend Coffee Share. That’s because I had a major deadline yesterday at midnight, and I made it with about 30 mins to spare. For the last two weeks I’ve locked myself away in my flat and worked on my assignments.

I’ve probably had way too much coffee (in fact I know I have) over the last week especially, but I’ve become really good at brewing a nice strong cuppa, so you’re welcome to some! It’s crisp but nice out, all blue skies, autumn colours, no clouds, but cold. If you don’t mind, I’ll get the cushions out one last time and we can sit outside on the armchairs on my patio with warm blankets wrapped around us and steaming cups of coffee (or tea or hot chocolate, whatever you prefer) in our hands.

Interview with me – Karl. / Solinger Tageblatt

It’s Throwback Thursday and I found an article about me (not by me for once) that was published on January 7, 2014 on youth page Karl. in local daily newspaper Solinger Tageblatt.

It’s in German, but I talk about NaNoWriMo, Sherlock Holmes & John Watson, researching the British Army and PTSD as well as writing fanfiction.

Bestselling NaNoWriMo Success Stories

If you think that NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is just a little project to keep wanna-be writers occupied during November and nothing ever comes of it, you’re wrong.

Several authors have had their start as NaNoWriMo participants and went on to publish the projects they wrote during November and edited during December.

Don’t believe me? Here are some traditionally published authors you migt have heard of, and their bestselling novels that started life as a NaNoWriMo project.

ROW80 End of Week Update

First of all: I won NaNoWriMo 2014 (yay!)

It’s far from over, and I have too many ideas still flying around in my head. I’ve approached it differently this year and I’m not sure this was better than last year. Then again, I’ve also had more on my plate this year than last.
