This Next Hard Bit Of Writing


“Every writer I know has trouble writing.”

~ Joseph Heller

Hey Lovelies.
It’s NaNoWriMo time again.

It was fine, last year.

I had a new story to tell and the words flew onto the page, and I couldn’t wait to get to my desk each morning.

But today?


I need a new beginning. I need better plot structure. I need a tighter narrative arc.

I need an ending.

There are too many threads and too much complication, and what’s this whole thing about anyway?
All my ideas suck.

I hate writing.
Still, I have no time for that. I have 50 000 new and better words to get done this month, starting right now.

Wish me luck. I so want to get this book finished and out into the world.
Love, paper cuts, endless insecurity, and bottomless self-doubt, Nicole xx

PS – I don’t really hate writing. I love it. But you know, it’s a complicated relationship…


Hi! I'm Nicole Cody. I am a writer, psychic, metaphysical teacher and organic farmer. I love to read, cook, walk on the beach, dance in the rain and grow things. Sometimes, to entertain my cows, I dance in my gumboots. Gumboot dancing is very under-rated.
