Writing a novel is a daunting but exhilarating goal and one I’m thrilled to be taking on again this year. After almost 20 years as a journalist I have discovered I work best with tough deadlines and that’s exactly what I’ve just given myself. Throughout November I have committed to writing 50,000 words – my entire middle grade novel.
The wonderful literary website Writer’s Edit has asked me to document my journey for them. So pop over and have a look at the first instalment. Here’s a teaser …
“Around the world this weekend, writers of all shapes, sizes and experience are at the starting line of a literary marathon.
November means National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) where more than 300,000 participants are given the goal of writing an entire novel – 50,000 words in just 30 days. … for the second year in a row, I am taking my place among them.”
As for me … I’m heading off to my fictional world. Let the adventure begin!
