ISWG: I hope I’m not late…

So many things have happened in the past few days that I almost forgot that today’s ISWG Day. On this day, insecure writers post about their insecurity, wins, loses and even answers to a question of the month. This time it’s “What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever googled in researching a story?

My Answer:

I guess the strangest thing for me was researching if there were any forests that actually had red soil, thick trees and mountains. It was for an assignment for my creative writing class where the protagonist went on a treasure hunt with his uncle and father.

Currently Reading:

I’ve just started The ‘4-Hour Workweek’ by Tim Ferriss and will be soon beginning ‘The Time Machine’ by H.G. Wells. I’ve had to retire ‘Tell Tale’ for now as the rains are making it difficult to read while travelling.

Last Month:

October was quite a productive month in terms of writing. I managed to finish my book outline. I plan on taking an extended NaNoWriNo (about a 100 days) to write my novel. I also took part in this month’s WEP.

Am really excited to read other entries on this week’s ISWG question.

  1. Is that 100 days to draft, write, and edit your novel, or just write the first draft? I’m on year 9 writing my novel, sooooo…100 days sounds impossible for me! 😀


  2. Research is fun I love it. Sometimes I waste a lot of time with it though so I need to recognize when I’m spinning my wheels and when I need to move on.


  3. Thanks Bernadette for the news. I am currently (still) reading Barkskins. A novel spanning 5 centuries on the exploitation of the forests of the US, Canada and New Zealand. The book follows two families, revolving around the logging industry with intermarriage occurring in Native American and Maori tribes. Fascinating, but also sad to see to what extend the white man didn’t care about preserving and renewing forests for future generations. If you are interested I wrote a review on my blog back in May. Have an inspiring November.
