Red tulips and Camp NaNo progress

Close-up colour photo of a red tulip

My husband arrived home with a beautiful bunch of red tulips on Friday. They’re sitting on the bedroom windowsill and were the first thing I saw when I woke up this morning, looking gorgeous in the spring sunshine. I took this photo with my Polaroid macro lens, which I haven’t used in absolutely ages. It was lovely to play with it again and reminded me how much I enjoy taking close-up photos.

In non-photography news, Camp NaNoWriMo is off to a good start. I’m at 7,287 words total, which includes the “Oh my god, I’m so inspired, I can’t not write stuff” head start I allowed myself to have. I was totally panicked about writing a total of 20,000 words this month but the head start has made it much less scary and I feel a bit better about the fact that I literally cannot avoid editing as I go along.

I should be able to have a few days off through the month too, which is great because a good friend is coming to stay for a couple of days this week and it’ll be awesome to cook dinner together and catch up on all our goings-on.

I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend ❤

    1. I haven’t hit 20k words yet but hopefully I’ll make it! I’m toying with the idea of doing NaNoWriMo in November, but that’s 50k words and I honestly don’t know if I’d manage it. I figured starting out with a 20k project would make it less intimidating.

      1. I think that’s very sensible. I aim to write 100 words every day and I find even that challenging what with work, family commitments etc. but I have just about averaged that over nearly four years and it does build up.
