I started NaNoWriMo yesterday. The word stands for national novel writing month. Although it says National it is in fact international and this year roughly 150,000 people worldwide are taking part. The aim is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. I took part in 2012 and 2013 and managed to complete a novel each time. These were only first drafts nothing I would ever show anyone but they are the core of further novels. This is the first time I have tried writing a novel whilst working full-time, setting up a Soroptimist International group and publishing a book all in the same 30 days! The phrase if you want something done ask a busy woman springs to mind. So too does the fact I've had several gastric ulcers in the past.
You'll notice I'm writing much longer paragraphs here. This is because I'm using Dragon. Dragon doesn't seem to like me using it on weebly. It keeps trying to put every word in a capital letter Unless I talk really fast and it can'tDo it. Dam.
Regarding my book it's going well. As their top teen fiction author, they have invited me back for a second author signing session in January. Which I'll be happy to manage. In addition I've approached Canterbury and Eastbourne Waterstones to see if they'll allow me to do a session there. Not sure why my Dragon won't let me write on my website And It's Quite annoying so this is a short post today.
