I hit 50K on day 18, but couldn't validate until today, so there you have it. I'm officially a winner. The very best thing to have come out of this year's NaNoWriMo is that on most days I've been able to ditch my old school ways. I've barely written with a pen for the last... Continue Reading →
So, it's day 10, and I've hit the halfway mark. Twenty five thousand words. Two new characters. Lots of questions to delve into. A ghastly tour around an abandoned mental hospital. Menace on the underground. An unexpected comedy crush. The return of some favourite but relatively unexplored characters. I'm having heaps of fun, especially as... Continue Reading →
It's that time of year again. Falling leaves. Hidden dog turds. Fireworks. Whole TV channels dedicated to Christmas films. Hot chocolate. And most importantly of all, NaNoWriMo. This November I'll be writing the sequel to the project I started last July. I've been outlining for the last few weeks, and although I don't know exactly... Continue Reading →
I hit 50K just before midnight on day 19. I was so tired that I forgot to update until today. Oops! Although I managed to hit the target, it's been difficult. The first week was pretty awful and due to a change in circumstances since July's camp, I've had to do most of my writing... Continue Reading →

I didn't even stop at 70K. I'd never written so much in a single month in my whole life. I wrote... Continue Reading →
My first camp is over. My target was 50K. My final word count was 71,375. I've validated it so now it's official. I won. I'm about 65% through my outline so I'm not done yet, but I've broken the back of a story that's been sitting on the back-burner for almost thirty years so I'm feeling... Continue Reading →
I'm almost at 65K with just a couple of days to go. I want to really push this baby. Hope you're staying motivated. I'm looking forward to blogging about other things though. Haven't had a spare moment to scratch my butt.
I hit 60K tonight. That's 10K above my target. No sign of this story being done yet and it's shaping up nicely.
