NaNoWriMo

With the end in sight for the page seventeen workload for another year, I can almost imagine some time freeing up. Except that perhaps I've already booked it.

Earlier in the year I started thinking about and doing some research for a novel, then, when things got too busy and I wasn't really making progress in the odd one-hours I'd find to myself (life with zero-year-old), I put it off. I think I always suspected November was the time to get back to it, and I've been getting a little antsy about the idea of getting struck into it properly come November.

To take advantage of this energy and good inentions, I have signed up for NaNoWriMo. In case you don't know what that means, I've committed to writing a 50,000 word novel, or that many words of one, during the thirty days that are November.

Care to join me?

Good Luck, that sounds like a whole lotta work :-)

Sure hope this motivates you to get stuck-in. Almost wish I could do it too but a holiday seems like more fun :)

Wow. I'm busy just trying to edit my second novel, and kind of panicking because I've only got a few weeks more to do it. Love your fighting spirit, Tiggy. Huzzah!

Way to go Tiggy! If I knock off my thesis in time, I'm there with you. Does a short story anthology count?

Hey, thanks to all of you. A lotta work sure, and I could probably do with the odd encouraging message, via here, twitter or a P17 email, whatever contact you have for me...would be great.

Laurie, I reckon a short story collection would count, sure. Make sure you get that thesis done in time...go Laurie, go Laurie, go..
