20 Days to go….

It's almost that time again!! Time for what you ask? NANOWRIMO of course! I love it! I've been checking out the website today - there's the Nano Video which has that awesome soundbite at the beginning and end. Let me tell you - that sound is one of my favourite sounds ever. Whenever I hear … Continue reading 20 Days to go….

Camp Update

I realised that I have not updated you all on my progress in Camp Nano this month! Sadly, progress has slowed. I wrote the final scene of my novel at around 30k, and writing the remaining 60k goal I set for myself has been an uphill battle. So far I'm still on track, and I … Continue reading Camp Update

He said he never had a career plan – nothing aside from a list he wrote when he was about 15 of things he would like … Continue reading Pondering Neil’s speech

The Big Edit

I've been working through the novel I wrote during National Novel Writing Month last year. Attempting to edit the beast. At 100,153 words it is massive - easily 40,000 words longer than anything else I've written. 40,000 words is almost a novel in itself. I've read through it all once, and I'm relieved to say … Continue reading The Big Edit
