Hogwarts at Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Photo Taken & Edited by Christy
During the summer of 2012, I got a chance to go to my second Harry Potter conference in Orlando, Florida which was Ascendio (the first one was Infinitus 2010). This was a wonderful experience to not only be around other awesome fellow Harry Potter fans, but also learn more about writing from actual incredible authors who were fans of the series. They really inspired me to strive towards my dream of writing a novel.
In November of 2012, I was willing to take the plunge and participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). The experience was incredible. Even though I didn’t get to the goal of 50, 000 words. I still felt like I winner because I wrote 37, 042 words. That was more than I’ve ever written for one story. I also got an opportunity to meet some wonderful local writers through the South Texas Scribes.
I’ve participated in the first session of Camp NaNoWriMo 2013 in April. I’ve won with writing 30,000 words and completing my novella. I continue to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo when I can. I graduated with my Masters of Arts in English Literature in May 2017.
