CampNaNoWriMo…..I WON!


It’s the first of August and the first day of ‘Post-CampNaNoWriMo’.

This was my first venture into the world of National Novel Writing Month and I have to say, it was quite an adventure! The late nights, the disobedient characters, the sections of storyline that I definitely had NOT planned… It all mixed together to make this last month a fantastic experience.

I don’t think I am ready for the full NaNoWriMo in November, I only had a target of 25k this time and completed at 23:32 on the very last day of writing, but in a year or two I expect to be tearing my hair out and making my friends think I am terrible boring whilst writing full 50k first drafts of my novels.

I’m delighted to have finished the draft of my novella and I can’t wait to go back and read it all. The editing fun starts now!


Camp NaNoWriMo

I have signed up for Camp NaNo.


I am very excited about this fact. 

Months ago i started writing a short story. It was supposed to be 1500 words, but it got ridiculously huge. Apparently I ‘lack discipline’. So i have now started again with this story: i’m planning it out from the start, re-writing the bits I already have to actually make it good (using all my new found skills) and eventually I want to publish it. 

Watch this space!
