Nanowrimo – only 1 week to go

158582760As you may already know I am currently writing my first novel and have been for some time now.  It all started when I signed up to do the Nanowrimo challenge back in 2011 which basically stands for National Novel Writing Month.  It’s an opportunity to write 50,000 words of your novel during the month of November and so this is where I started “My once upon a time” journey.  It was a lot of fun and I met with other writers undertaking the challenge at weekly write-ins to ensure that we all focussed on that all important word count or as the Leader of the Group would say, “Bums on chairs, fingers on the keys.” It’s a snappy phrase to remember.

Anyway, it’s quite an addictive process once you get hooked and so I’ve signed up again this year and as this Blog covers many of the things I’m interested in, I shall be blogging about my experiences.  The same posts will also appear on my specialist writing blog which you can find at

If you’re doing Nanowrimo this year, it would be great to hear your comments and connect with you.
