National Novel Writing Month


Because I have so much time on my hands (hah!) and because I ONLY have three unpublished manuscripts lying unloved at the bottom of in my virtual desk drawer, I've decided to take part in this year's National Writing Month.

The idea is simple, 30 days, 50,000 words. Not hard at all...?

No need to send for the men in white coats; this is something I've wanted to do for a long, long time, or at least since I took my MA in Creative Writing at Bath Spa in 2004.

So just wish me luck! I will keep you posted on my progress, both with words (if I have any left) and with Word Count Scoreboard.

I'm doing it too Helena! I'll look for you when I sign in and maybe we can friend up and keep each other going when we just want to throw in the towel and get out the gin?

How wonderful Alison! We can laugh and cry and tear our hair out together! My user name is Helena Halme (I'm saving all my creativity for the novel...) xx
