Those last 14,000 words were basically the rough outline of a project that I’m now building in my snowflake method software, because I’m finally at the point where this is my last ‘free’ day for several weeks.  Not because I neglected anything else, but because I’m basically looking at needing to deal with several important projects over the next month or so.  And then we have Yule/x-Mas, and Uni and a dozen other things to look at.   It’s all very secret and hush hush, but one launches on the 6th – and you don’t need to go anywhere to keep up with the salient parts.

But that’s my Nanowrimo this year.

My experiences

The Nanowrimo this year was an odd experience.   I enjoyed it, but instead of being happy, and working down with my happiness, and slowly whittling into that store of happiness to fuel the run.  This year I started low and have ended up with a refilled well for my writing.  It’s just a pity, right now, that I can’t work on the things that I’ve got planned.  I’ve got plenty of editing and solid starts for some great books though.  I hope everyone else’s Nano went well.

Where now?

This blog started talking about the Nanowrimo – but from here, it’s going to slowly start picking up everything I write, and talk about.  I’m really looking forward to introducing everyone to the rest of my world 🙂  Anyone got requests?

Rebooting… #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun

I kinda feel like I'm watching a flashing cursor sometimes right now. As I said in my last post though, Tempus is talking about giving me space to do something to make me happy. And honestly? it's been a bit of a shock. And a bit of a weird thing to start organizing....

New stuff…a new design, backlist announcements and more! #mondayblogs

Firstly, I've redesigned my blog. I'd love to hear what people think of it, and if you'd like to see anything.I'll be connecting up more of my blogs as time goes on, but for the time being, and I'd love it if you sign up to my newsletter. I'm also delighted to...

The Covidcoaster – a week of ill #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun #kaiatus #Bloggingfromatoz

Last Monday, I posted about how myself and my youngest tested positive for CV19. Monday/Tuesday, I started getting really sick. Monday, I'd been quite cheerful - after all, Artenapan, my daughter, had had three days of a cough and little else. That's not how it played...
