Writing! Writing!

Hi guys, and welcome to my writing blog! I decided to not post writing things on my book review blog, Nyx Book Reviews, as I would like to keep these two things separated. I don't want to turn into one of those people that use their book blog as a promotion tool for their own stories.

So what am I writing? I'm currently working on a novella, the first in a series, that has the working title Dragonslayer. It's a medieval fantasy book, on the border of YA to adult, about a girl that decides to go kill the dragon that's threatening her family's lives herself. Of course, that's not going to be that easy for her.

My goal is to write 500 words every single day. The story will probably be around 20,000 words, if everything goes as planned. You can follow my progress in the sidebar.


  1. Sounds like a great project! Good luck with the writing. At the moment I am writing my thesis, which gets in the way of my fiction writing somewhat, but I think aiming to write X amount of words a day is always a worthwhile goal. I do that with my thesis, and it means I'm always getting something down on paper, even if I need to change it later. :)

    1. Thanks Katie! Oh man, my thesis is a few years away, but I'm already afraid of having to write it, the best of luck!

      Challenging yourself to write a certain amount of words is really productive, even on the days you don't feel like doing anything at all, you force yourself to work on your project for a bit. Thanks for stopping by and the follow (:
