Today is the first of November. Apart from being All Saints Day and significant in countless other ways (e.g. nuclear fusion happened for the first time on earth in 1952) it is the first day of NaNoWriMo.
The National Novel Writing Month (read International) – where writers, initially in the USA but now around the world, accept the challenge of writing 50,000 words in one month – the month of November. No mean feat.
I found out about NaNo last year, joined up and completed the challenge. The result? More than the first half of Akrad’s Children written.
This year, I’ve signed in again though I might be starting from behind with a camp this weekend and the major assessment for the Online Writing unit of my Masters due on Monday – but I’m hopeful I can catch up.
My project this year? The third book in the Akrad Legacy‘s trilogy – Mannok’s Betrayal.
I will keep you posted on how I’m doing.
