After several good intentions over the past 3 or 4 years, I’ve finally signed up for NaNoWriMo. I’m a complete novice at it so if anyone wants to hold my hand along the way here’s the link for my profile.
I’m going to use NaNoWriMo to finish my novel Where It All Began. I’m 60k words in and think another 50k should do it for the first draft, then I will be able to edit it down to around 90k. That’s the plan anyway.
I’ve also have an Open University short course starting with their FutureLearn programme. I’m doing the Start Writing Fiction one. I know it seems a bit mad seeing as I’ve already written two novels, but I’d like to complete my degree which I started with the OU many years ago and this is a nice way to get back into studying.
I’m hoping that edits for my third novel, The Half Truth, don’t pop back into my in-box for a few weeks. Although, I am looking forward to seeing the cover which is being worked on at the moment. I might even be able to give you a sneak preview soon.
Good luck to everyone taking part in NaNoWriMo this year.
